Curating & Filtering the Web
This week we discussed some of the dynamics of social media — beginning with the story of Martha Payne and her Never Seconds blog. Digital literacies regarding social media are essential today — not just for students but for educators, professionals, and indeed all citizens. An essential digital literacy is the ability to curate and filter the web as a means of dealing with the tsunami of information online. These ideas, along with several relevant sources, are shared in the following presentation which we discussed in class this week. Key resources are also available on our list of Readings and Resources (link above). Be sure also to check out our CT231 scoop.it where module-related content is featured regularly.
