“With great curation comes great responsibility.”

—Stan Lee (sort of)

When we hand the students the reins as curators, we give them the opportunity to do more than just bookmark websites. Curating means collecting, evaluating, and organizing sources; and when students nurture those skills, they emerge with both knowledge about a subject and confidence in that knowledge.

In her School Library Connection article, NoodleTools Educational Director Debbie Abilock maps out how to help students curate effectively by attending to issues of:

  • Authenticity
  • Findability
  • Specificity
  • Audience
  • …And much more

Read Abilock’s article and discover how you can transform your students into smart curators while meeting your own instructional goals and adding to your library’s collection.
