Teachers, are you doing content curation the right way?

“I don’t have time to develop materials for my students and why re-inventing the wheel if lots of learning materials are already available through different sources.”

You’re right. On the web there are about 127.000.000 results about Solar system, for example. There are videos, images, pdf, etc. So why would you create another resource about Solar system. Well the only reason I create something “new” is because, I want to help my students to get the information quicker, to understand the information, not just giving them a list of links, that they can’t make head nor tail of them. And besides that, I want to give them a feeling that the material is addressing them.

New technologies allows us to create beautiful multimedia lessons by searching and importing existing content from multiple sources  in one single place and share them with just one link. But here comes the most important part – how to put these contents together? Do we just gather links and perhaps content titles in a single place (see picture below) or do we curate the content?
