At P2PU, people work together to learn a particular topic by completing tasks, assessing individual and group work, and providing constructive feedback.
This course will become read-only in the near future. Tell us at community.p2pu.org if that is a problem.
Get started organizing online content and explore curation tools in Curating Content.
How many times have you tried to check a quick fact online and then lost an hour following links and checking unhelpful websites? The proliferation of paid search results and content mills makes it difficult to find what you want. Like traditional museum and gallery curators, digital curators acquire useful works and artifacts that fit into their collections. Influential tech evangelist Robert Scoble has said that content curation will be an essential 21st century digital skill.
posted message: Dear All,
I have changed the design of my tumblr blog to fit the type of posts I post. Curating in online is also about its presentation. The present theme allows the content to correspond well with the visitor.
Any suggestions? Feed backs ?
posted message: Looking forward to starting this course. I'm an Art Teacher who loves tech and the idea of needing the skill of curation in learning for the 21st Century is one I am very interested in. I think students and teachers, both, need this skill. Teachers should be used to it as they organise the info for their classes and students as they organise the info they need for exams, however, I wonder if this skill, at present is too narrow a focus. Will enjoy hearing and experiencing more throughout the course.
OK - off I go and start.
posted message: edited final task. Per Chloe's suggestion, changed the vague "Share any extra information on content curation and a link to your curated list below!" to a specific restatement of the process followed in the challenge with an emphasis on the fact that if you followed this process you have a deliverable product.
