One aspect of being a connected educator that I really enjoy is the ability to easily collect and curate resources around important themes or topics in education. I've found sharing them with adult learners has sparked great discussions and encouraged those who haven't started curating to do so.

I've experimented with a number of content curation tools. Here are some I keep going back to.

Although I've moved away from using this tool since they forced the "outliner" structure (an outdated, hierarchical way of organizing links, comments, etc.) and changed some of the display options that I valued, it's still one of the best curation tool as it is so easy to engage others in collection and analysis.

One of my most useful collections has been the outliner that traces the initial publication and the ongoing interpretation of the Seven Principles of Good Practice in Higher Education
