Curation vs. Blogging: The Difference Is In The Focus

Curation vs. Blogging: The Difference Is In The Focus | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If curation is all about finding and sharing great content, what's the difference with what so many bloggers have been doing until now?

The difference, according to Deanna Dahlsad at Kitsch-Slapped, is in the focus. While bloggers often cover just about anything that intercepts their online wanderings, curators are characterized by a strong focus on a specific topic.  

 

Here is a key passage from her article: "Many bloggers spend their time selecting what they consider the best of what other people have created on the web and post it at their own sites, just like a magazine or newspaper.

 

Or they provide a mix of this along with writing or otherwise creating their own content. Not to split hairs, but curation involves less creation and more searching and sifting; curation’s more a matter of focused filtering than it is writing.

 

Because content curation is expected to be based on such focused filtering, it begins far more based on topic selection.

 

This is much different from blogging, where bloggers are often advised to “just begin” and let their voice and interests accumulate over time to eventually reveal a primary theme.

 

...

 

Some collectors just collect what they like as they stumble into it. …Sometimes, collectors just keep piling up stuff, no matter what it is. Even if this isn’t hoarding, it’s not-so-much of a purposeful pursuit.

 

But professional curators, those who manage collections for museums or other organizations, and serious collectors, they maintain a specific focus.

 

And rather than stumbling into items, they continually seek for specific items.

 

The definition dictates the curation — and everything from funding to their continued employment is based on how well their collection meets the collection’s definition.

 

While blogging success may be thought of in many different ways, the success of content curation lies in how well you define, search/research, and stick to your subject."

 

Rightful. 8/10

El uso de las TIC y su transformación en la educación

El uso de las TIC y su transformación en la educación | A New Society, a new education! | Scoop.it

La era digital que actualmente vive el mundo, ha llevado a que los niños, adolescentes, adultos, y adultos mayores venzan su timidez y se apropien de las Tecnologías de la Información y las Comunicaciones para realizar múltiples actividades sociales y también escolares.

En materia educativa, el compromiso de los maestros en todos los niveles de enseñanza en aras de adquirir las competencias digitales es cada vez mayor. Su papel de facilitadores en los procesos de enseñanza, permite que sus estudiantes aprendan en las aulas a crear y a experimentar todo el tiempo con el uso de la tecnología.

Para Guiovanna Sabogal Alfaro, docente y directora del grupo de investigación OSIRIS, adscrito al programa de Ingeniería de Sistemas de la Universidad El Bosque, el uso de las TIC impacta positivamente las aulas de clase a partir de tendencias como las arrojadas en el informe Horizon “Perspectivas Tecnológicas, Educación Superior en América Latina 2013-2018”.

Responsive design. Google Plus. Menos es más. Una única URL que sea multifuncional y adaptable. El objetivo del Responsive Design es que el usuario disfrute de una buena experiencia de navegación, independientemente del dispositivo que elija para acceder al dominio. Search Engine Journal ( SEJ) afirma que su implantación tiene grandes ventajas: 1)   Google es partidario de este tipo de diseño. El buscador recomienda su puesta en marcha. Desde su punto de vista, es la mejor opción para captar a los internautas que entran con sus smartphones o tabletas. Asimismo, premia a las páginas que aplican Responsive Design con un mejor posicionamiento en los resultados de búsqueda. Es la manera que tiene el gigante informático de incentivar a las empresas a que instauren un diseño responsive.

Some will read this to say that a college degree has no value. Some will read this to say that it really doesn't matter where you go to college.


The perspicacious will see this is an opportunity. If what CIOs are really looking for is skills and experience, then higher education faculty will find ways to incorporate opportunities for students to develop and further refine skills. It's not perfect experience development, but using inquiry-based/project-based/action research-focused learning, the experience student can gain is a step in the right direction.
