Because most of the tools are also social networking tools, curating is a great first step to get connected with other like-minded teachers from around the world. This talk will outline steps to discover great content online, organize and save it for future use (curation) by showing some great bookmarking and curation tools. I also hope to share some ideas on how to evaluate, create or co-create your own content (creation) and how to share it with your colleagues or your learners.
