Curating content in the classroom: 30+ ideas for getting started

As teachers, we curate content for our instruction and for one another as we collaborate and share.  What tools are available to help us curate? And how can we teach our students to curate content purposefully? Here are over 30 resources, tips, and tools to get started.


In our role as educators, we curate content for our students and share it with them to give them access to multiple sources of information. We want to curate with a purpose and share meaningful content.

It’s easier said than done.

Information is everywhere. And the ability to organize that information in meaningful ways is a powerful skill. One that we are building ourselves.

So how can we organize the resources available to us as educators? And how can we teach our students to effectively curate content?

Fortunately for us, there are many apps, tools, and resources available to help teachers and students curate and share content. But where do we find them?

In a recent #Ditchbook chat, moderated by Sean Fahey and Karly Moura, we tackled these questions and more as we discussed curation. The #Ditchbook community shared over 30 ideas for curating content in the classroom.
