“Traditional understandings of ‘knowledge’ have significantly shifted in recent years, particularly with regard to who- or what – ‘holds it’ as classroom teachers are no longer the guardians of information for their students" -

THANK YOU
Information Curation
Jeff Cobb, on his blog Mission to Learn asks Who Are Your Curators?
" Curators are people or organizations that do the hard work of sifting through the content within a particular topic area or “meme” and pulling out the things that seem to make most sense. This effort involves significantly more than finding and regurgitating links, though. "

"An important part of learning is to build your own personal learning network — a group of people who can guide your learning, point you to learning opportunities, answer your questions, and give you the benefit of their own knowledge and experience." - Tobin, D. R. (1998). Personal Learning Network.
