Content curation is going to continue to be a part of conversations in the classroom and out of the classroom because of the availability of so many different resources.
In the classroom, many teachers are lamenting the fact that students are going first to the web for information rather than perusing the library and using information that…well…the teachers used when they were in school.
It’s not information failure, it’s filter failure.
Outside of the classroom, parents, grandparents and young professionals are trying to shift through the information to find reliable resources that pertain to their jobs and to share with their families. This isn’t going to stop being an issue.
It’s time to start being smart shifters.
