Useful Tools

Tools for Curation
Curation is "a process of finding, validating, selecting, organizing, and sharing information on a targeted topic for a targeted audience." (Evans et al, Independent School, Winter 2015)
Curation tools allow teachers to share resources with a class and serve as a valuable tool for learning, encouarging the boys to engage in critical thinking as they become curators themselves.
