Curate the Web

Are you a Web Curator?


You may have already heard of a curator for a museum or art gallery, but have you heard of a web curator?  Recently curating the web has become quite popular.  To "Curate the Web" means to create a collection of web resources centered around a topic and organize that collection in some way.  The whole purpose to curating the web it to take the massive amount of information that is available and organize it into bundles that are easy to share and use.

Today, I thought I would share some different ways to Curate the Web.  


#1 Bag the Web - Here is a collection of search engines for students




#2 Scoop.it - Here is a collection of iPad Apps for Education






#3 Pearltrees - Here are some Digital Storytelling Resources










#4 Meaki - Here is a collection of Web 2.0 for schools.







#5 Pinterest - Here is my collection of educational Pinterest Boards








#6 Stumble Upon - a fun way to discover new web content and save your favorites.


I have used all of the above sites and find each of them to be entertaining in their own way.  Perhaps you know of a site that is great for curating the web.  If you do, please share!
