Heidi Cohen does a good job of outlining 12 key characterizing traits of any good content curation effort. This is great advice for anyone  just starting out with curation and for anyone having reasonable doubts about the correct approach to take.

 

 

Good, sound-advice, for who is starting out with curation. 7/10

Using Google’s Advanced Image Search Features (4:35) | Under Ten Minutes | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

In an effort to stem teacher apprehension about letting students at the elementary level just “google” their image, Fred Koch created this screencast on the features of Google Advanced Image Search. In particular, this tutorial points to the importance of citing images, finding images which are ‘labeled for reuse’ and examining the SafeSearch options.
