Curation tools are quickly rising to the top of web apps available. But what exactly are curation tools? To curate means to select, organize, and maintain items in a collection. Curation tools are easy to use and aid in organizing all that web content you keep finding on the internet.
There is an expansive amount of content on the web creating an overload of information. Curating is a way to select and keep information you like to remember, and can new information from others. I have selected a few of the newer curation tools for you to organize your educational content in 1 place!
LiveBinder makes it easy to save and curate information (with links) from the web into digital binders! Each binder can consist of your subjects, or for parents.
eduClipper is a new curation tool set up for educators and students. You can collect, create, and curate all your information and share with others.
Symbaloo curates links into app size tiles for easy clicking. I love the matrixes and organization when it is finished.
You all are doing great work!
Time is almost up!! Our last six weeks is here!
