“Digital learning is one of those things that just keeps on going. As new technologies develop, distance learning and digital options become more viable and available to a wider range of learners of all ages.

Exploring Curation as a Core Competency in Digital and Media Literacy Education, Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2013

Exploring Curation as a Core Competency in Digital and Media Literacy Education, Journal of Interactive Media in Education, 2013 | Articles in Education | Scoop.it
abstract"In today's hypermedia landscape, youth and young adults are increasingly using social media platforms, online aggregators and mobile applications for daily information use. Communication educators, armed with a host of free, easy-to-use online tools, have the ability to create dynamic approaches to teaching and learning about information and communication flow online. In this paper we explore the concept of curation as a student- and creation-driven pedagogical tool to enhance digital and media literacy education. We present a theoretical justification for curation and present six key ways that curation can be used to teach about critical thinking, analysis and expression online. We utilize a case study of the digital curation platform "Storify" to explore how curation works in the classroom, and present a framework that integrates curation pedagogy into core media literacy education learning outcomes.
