Content aggregating tools are nothing new. I also use Bloglines where I gradually add RSS feeds from sites I want to monitor and organize them by topic. But if you want to bypass the work yourself, Alltop does it for you.

Susan Kay Daniels's insight:

This easy to understand infographic for teachers is full of great ideas for "curating for professional development". The beauty of this is the same techniques can be applied to many other professions as well.

 

The "information highway" is for a bazillion purposes that include professions with accredited degrees or self-taught professions learned through a lifetime of experience.

 

Truth be known, every time we "search" a topic online, we are aggregating information that we can then curate to meet our individual needs and wants.

 

Now that you are becoming more aware of the act of "aggregate 'n' curate" in our daily lives - how has curating entered into your life and career? What are some of the tools you use, from the most simplest to the highly complicated. What's your list of curation tools today?

Curation is a natural for teachers and Librarians.  I also hope it becomes a process that is commonly taught to kids.  It's a great way to follow your curiosity and build something useful and meaningful from the research process.

Yes Dennis! I so agree. Without realizing it, most bloggers are aggregating and curating when they write their blog posts. No one is an island - all ideas come from something. :)

The Internet is getting so full of information these days that it is not surprising to see how many curating tools are emerging for teachers to use. Scoop.it is definitely one of my favourite curating tools.
Susan Kay Daniels's insight:

How cool! A curating article about what else...? Scoop.it! Of course.

Had fun creating a series of charts showing how each content marketing feed created on Scoop.it make a contribution to a tapestry of content marketing.

Brian Yanish - MarketingHits.com's curator insight, May 5, 2013 8:46 AM

Thanks Marty for sharing.


SHARING is a key part of this web social economy we are living in right now. It started with content, (message boards, blogs) and now has moved on to cars (Zipcar), bikes (Citi Bike) and beds (AirBnB). 


We are becoming more connected than ever before and OUR online profiles, that WE and OTHERS create about US is driving this sharing economy.


Marty, I know you and I have never met in person but via Scoop.it and social sharing we are connected. Interesting how business is changing.

Martin (Marty) Smith's comment, May 5, 2013 7:29 PM
Agree Brian. When SHARING is at the core many things change such as: competition, how we scale, how we make money and how and what we support.

In a social sharing time we compete in a more collaborative way where rising tides lift all boats. I was shocked to be in a meeting the other day where someone was pithing the idea of unilateral zero sum benefit. Shocked because everyone I work with get it - that doing the right thing is increasingly the right thing to do. I wasn't going to convince this particular manager that WE are stronger than I or ME, but most of us are getting it and that is one of the things driving Scoop.it's success :).M

Content Curation – Simplified - Curate Content

The MacMillan Dictionary defines content curation as “the process of analysing and sorting Web content and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme”.
Susan Kay Daniels's insight:

I believe the diagram and information on this page breaks down content curation just about as well as I've seen so far. It states what "content curation is" and what it "is not". It gives an easy to understand diagram of the how curation builds value for all involved.


My love of curation is that it opens up so much more learning for me as I search through the internet, aggregating information and then curating what I find most interesting and useful. Hopefully, most useful for my readers as well.
