An ode to digital curation. From an original idea of Joyce Valenza.


Curation, Curation Curation!
Curation, Curation. Curation!

Who day and night must aggregate the content, pull together knowledge, harness all the feeds
And who must make sense of media, tags, and text, keeping learners up to date, at school

Librarian, Librarian

Librarian, Librarian,

Who do we rely on for creative stuff
What’s best so we avoid the fluff?

Who must point the way to stuff that’s good enough
So we don’t miss the stuff that’s really buff!

The Network, the Network. Curation!
The Network, the Network, Curation!

At ten my three-ring notebook really held all my school stuff.
I know by now that binder can’t contain my research

The student, the student. Curation!
The student, the student. Curation!

And who does TL teach to curate with new tools,
So we can gather knowledge both in and out of school?

The learner, the learner! Curation!
The learner, the learner! Curation!
