Curating, Collaboration, and Blogging Tools  


 

 

 

 

 

Curating and collecting resources can be done by teachers and students. This process can be compared to gathering books and resources at the library for students to use. For new-to-Web-Resources people, these tools may be a stepping stone to building a blog or Web site. They require very basic skills and are easy to share through social media. 

 On her blog, "Innovations in Education," Nancy White discusses the differences between curating and collecting and the pedagogical implications of these practices.
