Curation tools for students and teachers
with Kristina Smith (Turkey)
Curation is about
creating a collection of links to your favorite online content (pictures, worksheets, presentations, articles, etc.)
storing the links so they are easy to find from a single page
sharing them with other teachers who will also share with you
accessing the most useful links quickly through a network of people with similar interests
possibly also collaborating with others to create these collections
For teachers this means sharing resources quickly and easily with other teachers around the world. It also opens up the possibility for students to create their own collections of resources.
In this webinar we'll look at some tools for 'content curation', examine their advantages and possible drawbacks and consider the issue of copyright when sharing other people's content. We'll do this while looking at real examples of how teachers and students are using these tools. By the end of the webinar I hope you will be motivated to explore some of these tools for yourselves.
