Curatorial Thinking: Sense-making and Storytelling in the (Digital) Classroom

Curatorial Thinking makes sense of information, creates meaningful stories, and builds social responsibility and awareness – all while meeting students where they are and empowering them to take ownership of their own learning. Life during a global pandemic emphasizes how important it is to consider factors across disciplines when problem-solving, and Curatorial Thinking serves as an effective framework for engaging in critical inquiry via multiple entry points. Defining Moments Canada introduces this framework and demonstrates how many educators are already using Curatorial Thinking, show classroom activations, and share resources to support these activities through both synchronous and asynchronous learning.
