Do you have trouble finding articles you previously read? Or answering questions when you know you’ve seen the answers…somewhere? Online-curation tools are an easy way to filter, organize, and — perhaps most powerfully — share links, information, and resources. These tools provide an effective way to share knowledge, yet they are one of the least-known types of social-media tools. With the abundance of online content, online curation is quickly becoming a trend and a skill learning professionals need. “Curation replaces noise with clarity. And it's the clarity of your choosing. It's the things that people you trust help you find.” – Steve Rosenbaum, Curation Nation

Participants in this session will see how easy it is to store and share links and create great-looking pages of resources using online-curation tools. You’ll learn the advantages of a variety of these tools — such as delicious, Scoop.It,, and Pinterest — and see how to use these tools for personal knowledge and to access high-quality content on topics that interest you.
