Curating Quality Digital Content

"With an abundance of information to sift through, content curation is an important survival skill for teachers and students today.

Content curation is a method of collecting and managing web content for sharing and reuse. With so much content to collect, and so many free tools for curating content, it’s easy to get lost when trying to take on this task. It’s also difficult to know where to begin."
