the same results as my search

Taming Information Overload through Curation 2012 Presentation

407 views

Published on

Presentation for Advancing Learning Conference 2012
Description: Mitchell Kapor, founder of the Electronic Frontier, wisely said that “getting information off the internet is like taking a drink from a fire hydrant. Our instant-on, hyper-connected world provides us with millions upon millions of pieces of data anytime and anyplace in a simple click. But how do we sort through all that data to reach the relevant information we seek? Can we trust the “Googlebot” to give us or our students the best of what’s there? How do we tame that massive overload of data?
The most valuable resource we have is community and shared resources. This workshop will introduce you to the curation community and the tools you’ll need to become an effective curator. Some of the tools discussed will be twitter, delicious, facebook, pinterest, tweeted times, paper.li, curated.by, scoop.it, zite, and flipboard.

Presenter: Karen Hamilton, Professor/Online Coordinator, School of Liberal Arts & Sciences, George Brown College.
