Curating is a vital skill

Curating is one of the important building blocks of cognitive computing and artificial intelligence. The software for these Livebindersareas is going to be as good as the curating and if you have watched the video about Watson , you will know that intelligent software needs intelligent curation. The outcomes will only be as good as the input and that means resources on the internet need to be of a very high quality and peer reviewed. Cognitive computing is used widely in medicine these days and artificial intelligence is being applied in educational contexts. Currently we do not have many sites where students can safely curate information. Paper.li is a well established, well respected one and students can curate in Evernote but it is not the same as the widely available information aggregation sites. Safety and suitablity are important in schools so we needs apps and online sites which teach curation but which are student friendly and child safe. My own favourite information aggregation sites are Flipboard , Zite and Diply. I collect suitable links on my blogs and like  places like del.ic.ious. Livebinders allows you to curate your own material and is education friendly and has education support. These sorts of sites need to be more available on the Net, more prominent in schools and come with a safety tick for education.You need to use information aggregators to understand how they work and then that will inform good choices when you do your own curation on a site.
