Information enthusiasts have been talking about how to best curate resources for some time, but the tools for curation keep changing. While commercial products, come, go, and/or are swallowed up by larger companies, edtech and digital content providers are developing an increasing number of tools for learners of all ages to store and retrieve collected resources. Some of these solutions address libraries’ “container problem” – how to provide access to a collection in its entirety in a user-friendly delivery system. Some provide educators portals for warehousing instructional materials. Others address students’ curation needs.
In this session, the presenter shared an array of curation solutions, their strengths and limitations, and strategies to morph tools and create workarounds where services still need work. This webinar recording will benefit grades 3-12 school librarians, classroom teachers, curriculum leaders, and public librarians.
