Digital Curation

images-8With an overwhelming amount of content being created and published on the web each day, curation has become an essential 21st century skill for teachers and students.  Curation is the ability to sift through content and recognize what is relevant and meaningful.  Just as an art curator will carefully select pieces that will enhance their museum, we must be able to select digital resources that will add value to a particular project or lesson.  Digital curation also requires that we share the curated content with an audience that will benefit from it.  Curation becomes most powerful when students are able to add their own perspective to curated content and create something new.
