JUAREZ POPOCA, Diana; TORRES GASTELU, Carlos Arturo  and  HERRERA DIAZ, Luz Edith. Educational possibilities of content curation: A literature review. Apert. (Guadalaj., Jal.) [online]. 2017, vol.9, n.2, pp.116-131. ISSN 2007-1094.

The objective of this work is to analyze the implementation of content curation experiences in educational practice. The point of departure is the premise that this activity is not reduced to the information management, but that it affects the capacity of individuals to perform optimally in the environment of modern digital media. The methodology applied is the systematic literature review. Through a search limited to the period 2011-2016, 19 empirical studies were found. The objectives, technological tools and main results of these studies were identified. The level of analysis of the following three aspects was evaluated: Collaborative learning, information management and training for digital media. The latter was less relevant. The conceptual discussion was integrated with the evidence of the experiences reviewed as a reference framework of the educational possibilities of content curation. The review shows great educational potential of content curation and encourages continued exploration from different contexts.

Keywords : Digital literacy; information literacy; content curation; higher education.
