How to use content curation in your class

See on Scoop.itteaching with technology

 

Instructors are information curators. At iTteachU (University of Alaska), this is how teachers are using content curation tools in the classroom to:

 

– create group activities;

– organize and disseminate new content as a sort of digital handout to students in online and flipped classrooms;

– collect and share professional reading materials with students;

– foster discussion about current events;

– encourage students to become both content creators and curators;

– connect to experts outside class and to the world knowledge base;

– critique information available on the web. teach students to curate social media;

– help students gain credibility and exposure;

– keep track of online research efforts;

– create reading lists;

– help students gain access to the ‘collective intelligence’ of the Internet;
