Curating the #!%@ outta the Internet!

Yes, I still had an image (from one of my more recent posts) I wanted to use!  Now, I could spend hundreds and thousands of words explaining what curation is all about – but we all know:

  1. Content Curation World (curated by Robin Good)

  2. Curation & The Future of Publishing (curated by gdecugis) Actually, I first got interested in curation because I noticed that some “buggar” had raided me blog – and, I thought at the time, “nicked” me “stuff” (this does happen a lot BTW…still). In fact, the title of Pascal’s site sort of shocked me when I discovered that he had “grabbed” some of my stuff (but he always gives credit where credit is due).

  3. Things I Grab (curated by Pascal aka plerudulier) He is, shall we say, – a “curation machine” (who sleeps less than I do). But, he has an amazing range of interests and LEARNs me so much. The next big “curation find” I had was this one – packed with great stuff that really made me thunk…and LEARN (again, Maria does not seem to sleep much – or has an “army” of clones):

  4. Brain Pickings (curated by Maria Popova)

So, here we go! Although widely-known as a “blog”, this site has been one of my favourite curation sites for some time – and not just because of the sexy title Ian Jukes gave the site (there is a really good story behind this storyCLICK HERE to find out more):

  1. The Committed Sardine Blog (curated by the guys at the 21st Century Fluency Project) Some of my other fave EDUcuration sites are:

  2. Digital Delights (curated by Ana Cristina Pratas)

  3. Interactive Teaching and Learning (curated by Anne Whaits)

  4. 21st Century Tools for Teaching-People and Learners (curated by Gust Mees)

  5. Transformational Leadership (curated by Susan Bainbridge)

  8. Everything iPads (curated by Andrea Zeitz

  9. Digital Delights for Learners (curated by Ana Cristina Pratas)

  10. Innovations in e-Learning (curated by k3hamilton)

  11. Learning Technology (curated by Nik Peachey)

  12. Visual Revolution (curated by Andrea Zeitz) As you might have noticed, I have used a lot of sites from:

  1. Pinterest for Teachers (curated by Erin Klein)

  2. Technology – Education (curated by Krystina Valdes)

  3. allthingslearning – yes, there is also a board for all the stuff that has been “grabbed” (not by Pascal this time) from my very own blog: If you are interested in what Pinterest is all about, CLICK HERE for a great interview with Ben Silbermann, the founder of this great visual curation tool. Oh, yes – almost forgot! There’s also a “new kid” on the block – a form of “Pinterest for EDUcation” (just for us)and yes, I do love the name of the site…

Check it out! OK - it does seem that I have "lost" the battle:
