Curation as Digital Literacy Practice

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice | Digital Learning, Technology, Education |

Ibrar Bhatt writes: "Digital curation therefore is not just about finding relevant material, although that is a significant part of it, but is also about creating a specific and unique experience by utilising the resulting materials which then become contextualised within a new space. A curator, therefore, whether she is a journalist-by-proxy such as Popova or a student completing an assignment in a classroom, not only collects and interprets, but also creates a new experience with it. In this respect, curation is a process of problem solving, re-assembling,re-creating, and stewardship of other people’s writing."

Raising Young Critical Thinkers in the Digital Age

Teaching kids how to curate information and discern what's trustworthy from what's bogus is a really important lesson for parents nowadays.

So it’s time to learn the art of curating the terabytes of content humans are bombarded with on a regular basis – it’s a survival skill and one that will provide an incredibly important advantage to kids in schools and the workplace of the future.
