Content Curation for Professional Development

Content Curation for Professional Development | Contemporary learning | Scoop.it

"Over half a century ago, management guru Peter Drucker presented the concept of the knowledge worker. Compared to the manual laborer, the knowledge worker focused on quality over quantity and worked more independently as problem solvers.

 

Over the many applications of Social Content Curation, Professional Development has been a strong trend. We keep observing it on Scoop.it but it's also been reported by Social Media influencers.

Content curation: make it part of your content strategy

Content curation: make it part of your content strategy | Contemporary learning | Scoop.it
Really capture the benefits of your Content Curation - Sharing links is just not going to be enough: in a world where tweets have a very short lifetime, you need to give your curated content a second chance by putting it on a curation layer where it can be discovered from search and from people with similar interests. 

 

This can be a blog, a site or a Scoop.it page but if you're going to make content curation part of your content marketing strategy, you will need that long term repository that social networks don't bring.
