When Educators Become Curators - keynote slides #moothr12
What is content curation? Content
curation is the process of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a speciﬁc theme. The work involves sifting, sorting, arranging, and publishing information. -‐ Beth Kanter h"p://www.bethkanter.org/content-‐curaGon-‐101/
What is a content curator?
A content curator cherry picks the best content that is important and relevant to share with their community. It isn’t unlike what a museum curator does to produce an exhibition: They identify the theme, they provide the context, they decide which paintings to hang on the wall, how they should be annotated, and how they should be displayed for the public. -‐ Beth Kanter h"p://www.bethkanter.org/content-‐curaGon-‐101/
