Educators as ‘content curators’?

I have been thinking about the term ‘content curator’ (see this blog post). As mentioned it is a new term for me, but on reflection, it is really what most educators do, particularly in the VET environment.

There is a whole lot of information ‘out there’ on the topics we teach, and the role of the educator is to take the relevant bits of that information and present that to the students. To varying degrees, the educator decides which bits of all that information are the most relevant, in effect, acting as a curator. What do you think?
