Online Social Media as a Curation Tool for Teaching.

Journal Article

This case study shows how students used online social media to disseminate curated knowledge to the public. This is a "redefined" way of having the students show that they have analyzed the existing knowledge on a topic, synthesized/reorganized it in a meaningful way, and created a new presentation of that knowledge in various ways. This case study demonstrates an effective teaching approach to ensure that students develop competencies in teamwork, collaboration, and informatics.
