EdTech 543: Curation


Artifact Introduction:

During our fourth week in our Social Networking class, we were asked to explore curation by:

  • Decide upon & develop a curation criteria with our mini PLN group.
  • Decide as a group which collaborative online tool to use to complete this list of criteria & a format to use
  • Reviewing the readings and resources about curation.
  • Based on the readings, develop a checklist of 15 to 20 criteria that will serve as a tool for assessing the quality and value of an education-related curated topic.
  • Ensure our checklist of criteria includes an APA formatted in-text references and a reference list of the sources that influenced and informed that list.
  • Post a link to our group’s checklist on the class Facebook.
  • Reflect on the process of creating the checklist and working as a group in the comments section of the Facebook checklist post and blog entry.



The process my PLN used to create this checklist was very smooth running. One of our group members (Katie) initiated action and decide upon a (fantastic & creative) theme for our checklist because she wanted to complete the assignment sooner than later. We used Google Docs, E-mail, and Facebook Messenger to communicate. We created our Curation Criteria using Google Docs & posting our work in different colors to see exactly what we were doing and then it was streamlined and revised by each of us individually to share with the class. I think our PLN will work well together on future projects & I am excited to see our growth as a network.

Standard Connection:

AECT Standard 1.2 Using:In order to create the curation criteria artifact I needed to demonstrate the ability to select and use technological resources and processes by conducting research on curation and the criteria to most effectively support student learning and to enhance my pedagogy.

AECT Standard 4.1 Collaborative Practice: In order to create the curation criteria artifact I needed to collaborate with my peers in my PLN and utilize information and ideas from subject matter experts. I did this to develop criteria for curation that will later have a  positive impact on learners.

About jasminequezada

I’m extremely lucky to call Boise Idaho, an outdoor haven of a beautiful little city, the place I call home. I teach 4th grade dual language. This means that I teach native English speakers, Spanish, and native Spanish speakers, English, by using both languages to teach the regular 4th grade curriculum to nine year old’s. I also have an extremely creative and inquisitive seven year old son who keeps me playing, laughing, and on my toes all day long, he is my favorite person. My boyfriend’s name is Victor and he is my partner in discovering the outdoors, which is why living in Boise is perfect for us! While I enjoy being outdoors, I also love technology and all of the doors it has opened to humanity to learn, grow, and evolve. This is why I consider it vital for myself as an educator to delve deeper into this technological world so I can continue to serve as a guide for my students, in their discovery of the world.
