Digital Content Curation - the process of collecting, organizing and sharing information relevant to a particular topic or area of interest.
In this Webinar titled, "Digital Content Curation For The 21st Century Teacher," instructor Alexis Alexander shows us how to find, organize, re-use and share digital educational content for use in your online, hybrid or face-to-face classroom.
The term curation in the past commonly referred to museum and library professionals. It has since been adapted to describe the use of Web 2.0 tools to find and organize digital content. Digital content curation is an occupation that is open to all teachers and learners. Instructors are using online content curation tools in the classroom to:
- Locate, organize and disseminate content to create digital resources for students in online and flipped classrooms.
- Collect and share articles in a discipline with students.
- Foster discussion about current events.
- Encourage students to become both content creators and curators.
- Teach students to use social media tools for education
- Help students gain access to the ‘collective intelligence’ of the Internet.
In this presentation, Alexis also discusses:
- Student-Centered Learning
- Active Learning
