Emily Colpi’s session, “Curating with Intent”
Description: Curation Tools are a big tech trend right now, but do they have any value in the library and classroom? Emily Colpi is on a mission to find out. Join her to learn what a curation tool is and how they’re being used to archive the Internet and to tell stories out of snippets of social media. She’ll share her experiments with curation in the library and classroom and reveal what she’s learned.
Emily hopes attendees will be able to: Define web curation, identify curating tools, and identify ways curation tools could be used in the library/classroom setting.
Angie S. learned “what curation is and the different tools available to curate my own content” and plans to “begin curating and sharing my own content.”
