Exploring Curation as a Core Competency http://www-jime.open.ac.uk/jime/article/viewArticle/2013-02/html Exploring Curation as a Core Competency in Digital and Media Literacy Education
In this paper we explore the concept of curation as a student- and creation-driven pedagogical tool to enhance digital and media literacy education. We present a theoretical justification for curation and present six key ways that curation can be used to teach about critical thinking, analysis and expression online. We utilize a case study of the digital curation platform Storify to explore how curation works in the classroom, and present a framework that integrates curation pedagogy into core media literacy education learning outcomes.

Listnerd http://www.listnerd.com Listnerd
Listnerd is a new take on lists; social, collaborative and interactive lists. Listnerd is Tripadvisor - for everything.
Listnerd allows anybody to create a list about anything. The author and main curator of the list determines an overall theme for the list and then surrenders the list into public domain.
The original author only retains partial control of the list - by for example deciding which new items are allowed on the list. Other than that, the list and the rankings of each item on it belongs to the crowd.

Spaaze (pronounced "space") offers it's users so called boards.
Each board is an infinite space which resembles a virtual cork board - hence the default cork background, but other backgrounds are available.
On these boards, items can be put. Currently Spaaze offers 7 different items: Labels, Notes, Bookmarks, Images, Files, Videos and HTML. These items can be edited in place, moved via drag and drop and positioned freely on the board.

To add some structure to the board it's possible to "remember" certain points (around which items have been placed) by creating hotspots

Curation vs. Aggregation? Curation is such a necessity these days. The overwhelming wave of information we are exposed to is drowning us in facts and opinion. Not only do we need to be curating the information that we are consuming but we need to be insisting that our students have the skills and necessary tools in which to curate their own world.
