Joyce Valenza identifies curating as an "information life skill."  While librarians are uniquely qualified for this task, it is a skill that everyone can benefit from, including students.  Joyce provides links to some of the curating tools available. Good summary, and some excellent questions are posed for futher thought and research.

Yes! Story and context go hand in hand.  By focusing on story, students might be better able to grasp the concept of context.

Paula Silva's curator insight, March 25, 2013 7:03 PM

Social curation - the act of curating a conversation - this one is about curation itself.  

Melissa's curator insight, May 13, 2013 2:37 AM

Curating is definitely mediated by the curators own spin on the content, whether it be understanding, interest, preference or other bias.

We need to stay away from the verb teach and embrace the word learn.In doing so, we embrace our partnership with the students and become a learning community; these are the first steps in a true collaborative learning community. Embrace the fact that students have something to bring to the table to share.

Teacher librarians transform student learning : ASLA report

The Australian School Library Association (ASLA) is calling upon Australian educational decision makers to employ teacher librarians as part of the solution to improve national student learning and literacy.  The association's report, Future learning and school libraries, highlights the positive role teacher librarians have in supporting future learning within the school.


Via Karen Bonanno

Karen Bonanno's curator insight, April 14, 2013 9:57 PM

A summary of key points in the report include:
- a review of the global environment in which modern learners and educators are immersed,
- the educational implications of trends affecting contemporary schooling,
- the means of evaluating education outcomes, and
- key alerts on the critical role of the teacher librarian.

Rashmi Moghe's comment, June 17, 2013 9:57 AM
Australian School Library Association (2013). Future Learning and School Libraries. ASLA, April 2013. Retrieved from http://www.asla.org.au/advocacy.aspx

Taking the Key alerts included are-
Globalisation facilitates connectivity across schools to allow for collaborative engagement in the exchange of information and creation of new knowledge for students.
The teacher librarian and the school library are vital agencies in facilitating global connectivity.
Teacher librarians are instrumental in
• the design and delivery of digital literacy programs,
• adopting digital citizenship approaches to exercising social responsibility and
ethical practice, and
• creating awareness of cultural sensitivity in a digital environment.
They also identify, store and disseminate relevant and appropriate information to
support the teaching and learning process; Teacher Librarians assess the quality of
information and customise access to that information.
