Day 12: Curation as a Critical Digital Literacy

Today is Day 12. If you are just starting with us today, you might want to check out Day 1 here.

We often hear from teachers and leaders who have just had their “coming out of the cave” moment – that realization that their colleagues are learning together in powerful ways online, and they had no idea they were missing out.

Suddenly they realize that the information flow is just too overwhelming.  They don’t know their next step.

Curation is a way to start making sense of the information overload that is social media and the web.  Curation is the process of sorting and sifting through, sensemaking and organizing, and sharing back the information that you think is valuable.

Curation is a critical digital literacy.

Connecting with great curators will enhance your ability to effectively and efficiently learn online.

Today we begin to explore the importance of curation for educators and learners of all ages.

Congratulations on continuing to become a connected leader!
