digital curation

The act of finding, selecting, grouping, contextualising and sharing digital content.

In short the internet is rich in content and the value of the digital curator is their ability to transform aggregated information into something new - constructing and reconstructing information to create new knowledge and learning. Within the educational context, digital curation can be used as a pedagogical tool to demonstrate understanding interpretive and creative abilities. It is also a key digital literacy in which the curator uses critical thinking and pattern recognition skills to aggregate and contextualise online content.
