Content curation

Tired of students mindlessly googling and accessing the first links that come up after one search. Get them to curate the resources they find and share them with the class. Construct an assignment where students need to collaborate and cross-pollinate the information they find.

Here's an example of one curation tool below:

Using Web 2.0

  • Prezi
  • Edmodo
  • Social Media
  • Smore
  • Pearltrees


  • death by PowerPoint
  • plagiarism


  • reading materials to reader
