Description

An ode to digital curation. From an original idea of Joyce Valenza. Lyrics: Curation, Curation Curation! Curation, Curation. Curation! Who day and night must aggregate the content, pull together knowledge, harness all the feeds And who must make sense of media, tags, and text, keeping learners up to date, at school Librarian, Librarian Curation! Librarian, Librarian, Curation! Who do we rely on for creative stuff What’s best so we avoid the fluff? Who must point the way to stuff that’s good enough So we don’t miss the stuff that’s really buff! The Network, the Network. Curation! The Network, the Network, Curation! At ten my three-ring notebook really held all my school stuff. I know by now that binder can’t contain my research The student, the student. Curation! The student, the student. Curation! And who does TL teach to curate with new tools, So we can gather knowledge both in and out of school? The learner, the learner! Curation! The learner, the learner!
