Evaluating and Curating Online Information
Presented by Jerry Blumengarten, former NYC educator and host of Cybraryman.com

"Curation is more than just gathering. 
It’s organizing, tagging, vetting, evaluating, and most importantly, sharing." 

It is important in this fast moving technology era that we not only learn ourselves, but also teach our students from an early age how to evaluate and then curate the information that they can easily access. Many students believe because it is on the internet it is true. They have to be reminded that anyone can put out information. Once information has been evaluated and vetted, it is wise to organize and archive it so that it can be shared.  

In our community’s next webinar, CybraryMan Jerry Blumengarten will share ways to 
critically evaluate information and how to identify the materials' accuracy, bias, currency, credibility and reliability. We will also explore ways to organize information and then examine a myriad of tools that can be used in the curation process.  Ways to disseminate this vetted information so others can benefit will be covered as well.  Join Jerry on May 13th to learn how to help your students with evaluating and curating online information.
