I love the fact that not just the teacher -but also the students are curating resources, and that this teacher does not let limited access to technology stop her!

Curation As Story - The Importance Of Human Filters | Content Curation for Education for me | Scoop.it

I just revisited Flipboard for the first time in a long time after reading Vicky's review.  I do believe this would be a great curation tool - especially for those lucky enough to have a 1:1 iPad classroom!

I have listed a number of capable curation apps that can help to do just that.http://appsineducation.blogspot.com.au/2012/01/10-ipad-apps-for-web-curation.html
