Digital Curation: A Framework to Enhance Adolescent and Adult Literacy Initiatives
Sharma, Sue Ann; Deschaine, Mark E.
Journal of Adolescent & Adult Literacy, v60 n1 p71-78 Jul-Aug 2016
Digital curation provides a way to transcend traditional academic fields of study and create instructional materials available to support adolescent and adult literacy initiatives. The instructional capabilities that Web 2.0 tools offer provide curators with the ability to reach audiences in a way that has not been possible in the past. The authors propose a digital curation framework for teachers to use as they collect, categorize, critique, conceptualize, and circulate resources. Based on this framework, the authors identify 10 valuable Web 2.0 tools that are available for effective content literacy digital curation.
