The implications of Curation
Curation tools make it easy to collect , post and group areas of content
for school and other pursuits.
• With the overload of information…making effective and safe use of the
internet is essential.
• Working in groups allows for collective curation- each contributor works
on a small sub-area to help the group.
• A filter bubble is where users only learn from one group or source.
• Collective curation therefore enables expansion of concepts &
formats, varied knowledge from experts, wisdom on specific content to
broaden and help the collective whole.
Why Curation ?
• Curation, as an approach to bringing digital and media literacy competencies
into the classroom, can help build meaningful teaching and learning

Summary on curation
• New curation tools present an exciting new genre of search tool, a tool for scanning
the real-time environment, as well as opportunities for evaluating quality and
relevance in emerging information landscapes. Valenza,J (2011)
• All Students can learn to curate and create through story telling. They learn the skills
of critical enquiry, analysis, organisation and evaluation, they can share their work in
groups and receive feedback.
• Teacher librarians need to explore technology, tinker and not be afraid to learn along
• There are many curation tools for many types of curation projects so allowing time
for participatory learning experiences is an important aspect for the teacher librarian
in developing student’s curation skills for school and toward life-long learning.
• “There is freedom in stepping out and taking risks when you know at any
given moment, you can always begin again.” ― Eva Gregory
