Robin Good's curator insight, July 21, 2014 9:23 AM



Blinkist offers non-fictions book summaries that allow you to get key insights from any book in less than 15 minutes. 
 

"Blinks are powerful bites of insight from outstanding nonfiction. You can read a blink in less than two minutes..."

Each book summary is made up of about eight blinks. These

are intended as a beginning of a self-driven path toward learning, rather than a replacement for reading full books.


Blinks are all manually handwritten and can be easily accessed and read on any type of device and screen size. 


A great example of how skilled curation of existing content can not only provide a useful and in-demand service, but make it sustainable too.

"Explain, always clearly why something you are curating/communicating is relevant. Contextualize."

This is just one of the five great points from Sam Burroughs that we should consider when communicating relevant information to people on our list.

There are four other great tips equally as important, that we should use when communicating information to others.

In today's fast-paced world the information that we are trying to communicate to others should be user centered.

I supposed twitter can be used or any tool can be used for anything,but some tools are made with certain intended affordance by the creator that would make the tool less effective for certain functions. curation in a way is capturing things void of time (i probably drawing too much from museum), while twitter is fast pace timeline of interactive (or one way) discourse.... they seems to be inherently different.

i'm just automatically sceptical when 'one tool can be use for all' theme appear. but it is an interesting suggestion.

Robin Good's insight:

 

 

If you are interested in what could be a good workflow and set of tools to use to curate content on your own WordPress blog, Nathan Weller has a must-read article for you.

 

In it, he dissects and explains the tools he uses to curate content on WordPress, from how he aggregates and browses RSS feeds, to how he filters, edits and actually curates the content of each post.

 

Interestingly his focus is on quality, not on having his site populated by lots of "somewhat relevant" content pulled in automatically by one of the many "content marketing"-oriented curation tools available today.

 

I think you will find several interesting ideas that you may have not considered on how to approach your curation workflow, let alone checking the several insightful comments at the end.

If you use YouTube playlists, to organise and manage videos, you may wish to try out a new feature which will enable you to add intros and outros to  the videos in the playlist to " weave individual videos together into a bigger story"

 

You can create these either as recorded 'to camera' pieces using your built in webcam or as text intros, there are a number of different styles and background effects to choose from. There is also an option to add background music.

 

The tool can be found in your Playlist settings in the Video Manager, click: Edit Playlist to use.

 

If students are creating playlist this facility might help them to think crtically about the content and sequences in a playlist.
