I think curating should be one of the main goal of learning phase in 21st century learning…
“Students of all ages must be trained to search, select, qualify (and therefore disqualify), then enrich with their own thought, and then use and share information.”
This is a great article that demonstrates the value of curation in education (especially using the platform scoop.it). Students today must sort through an array of online sources today. As a professor/curator, I see part of my role being to present students with vetted, quality online information. I demonstrate this in part ot provide materials for my students, but even more so to teach my students how to assess materials for themselves as they become the curators of information in their own right.
