Teaching Students to Become Curators of Ideas: The Curation Project | Content and Curation for Nonprofits | Scoop.it

Dr Corrine Weisgerber (@corrinew) teaches a Social Media Class at St Edward's University in Austin, Texas. On this site she shares details of her Transformational Digital Learning Designs in which her students are actively engaged in a Personal Learning Project, Blogging Project, Curation Assignment, Conversation Engagement, Live-Blogging/Live-Tweeting Project and Participation Assessment. The details of these assignment briefs to students can be found here: http://myweb.stedwards.edu/corinnew/comm4352/COMM3309SP12.pdf

 

Corrine shares some of the best examples of her students' work too - check out the blog roll which takes you to a selection of her students' blogs and some delightful curation projects where students used Scoop.It! and Storiful as the choice of digital media to present their work and demonstrate their learning.

 

One of her most rewarding learning designs was The Curation Project.

Humans Vs. Robots: Who's On Top? Steve Rosenbaum On Forbes

Humans Vs. Robots: Who's On Top? Steve Rosenbaum On Forbes | Content and Curation for Nonprofits | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"In a room full of media heavyweights, CEOs, and high-tech entrepreneurs, the debate is hardly philosophical. "Will Robots overtake Humans?" and in some cases should they?

The Monaco Media Forum was the site of the showdown, and the panel was an esteemed group of thinkers and digital leaders...and with Steve Rosenbaum, a passionate advocate for human curation – both as the author of Curation Nation, and the CEO of Magnify.net.

 

Here I propose a new rule of robotics. That going forward Robots must identify themselves as robots – and can’t impersonate being a human being.

 

Automation makes things more efficient, more the same, more boring. But humans tends to make things that aren’t exactly the same. The nature of human creation is that it isn’t algorithmic, but it, in fact, will have connections and relationships that are both logical and illogical.

 

The human element is what makes it fun, surprising, and engaging. A robot can’t do that.

 

The shift that changes the equation is the sheer volume of content flooding the web. Digital overload is swamping the current recommendation engines, making the sharp knife of human editorial a better filter than the blunt instrument of algorithmic recommendation.

 

For the future – the question of where humans and robots share joint custody of the future remains unclear. But until then, having robots not impersonate people seems like a reasonable place to draw the line..."

Interesting write-up by Steve Rosenbaum on how algorithms and humans compete to solve some of the biggest technological challenges today. Particularly in the content curation space, which reminds me of my own talk at Data Week earlier this year.

Eelco Kraefft's curator insight, December 15, 2012 7:55 AM

Kurzweil, author of The Singularity is Near', and mentioned in this article was just hired by Google. Does this mean Google News will soon grow into a more perfect content (80%+) curator than Rosenbaum now sees, compared to humans?

Excerpted from article:

"That's coming from someone whose entire job is to create content. But if you're a multi-tasking marketer -- creating email campaigns, building landing pages, managing a staff, tweaking your PPC budget, designing calls-to-action -- content creation has likely been elevated from a royal pain to a practical impossibility. I mean, maybe you'll get a blog post written in a couple weeks. If you're lucky, a new lead generation offer could get pumped out once a quarter.

 

If you identify with that overburdened inbound marketer description and are constantly frustrated at your inability to create as much content as you'd like, this is the post for you.

Here are 17 sources of quick content that can help you out in a pinch so you can keep feeding that hungry inbound marketing machine of yours.

 

1) Tap your sales and services teams.

2) Pull from your company collaboration tool.

3) Interview an internal expert.

4) Interview an external expert.

5) Pull excerpts from lead generation content.

If you are doing content curation, you are also probably doing some content creation, building content out of aggregated pieces.    So if content curation is like collecting and organizating your legos,  there is also a part to make sense of the collection - build something out of the smaller pieces.   For example, a presentation or article or blog post.


So, you need a method or to organize a part of your collection or smaller collection to prep this content.    This is an "idea dashboard" -- Evernote is a great for this if you a rext person and using curation to write.  There are also visual ways to organized too.

Honest, Caring Curation Is As Important as Creation

Honest, Caring Curation Is As Important as Creation | Content and Curation for Nonprofits | Scoop.it

Note from Beth:

This article was curated by Robin Good who used to point out the difference between sharing and curation - and how curation is actually closer to content curation.   Jan Gordon also highlighted the post with a call to action to content curations.     When two important curators here on Scoop.It call an article about our practice to our attention, we should read it, and consider how to apply the ideas to our practice.

Beth Kanter

http://www.bethkanter.org




------

Robin Good: If you are interested in understanding how "content curation" differentiates itself from simple re-sharing and re-blogging here is a great article by Chris DeLine.


Great advice for anyone wanting to become an effective content curator: “Whether in tweets, in blog posts, in podcasts, or in newsletters, be ruthless with your attention.


...


Some adopt a strategy of blanket-curation, throwing everything new or fresh or remotely interesting online and letting other consumers make their own value distinctions.


Others assume the role of tastemaker, selectively making the decisions themselves.


Both have their place, but the former contributes to what Jonathan Haidt calls “the paradox of abundance,” which he says “undermines the quality of our engagement.

How many content-overload websites can you monitor before you become overwhelmed by volume? How many share-explosions does it take before you remove a friend from your Facebook feed? How many Tumblr pages can you pay attention to before the reblogs become a blur?


...

Thoughtful, honest, and caring curation isn’t entirely different than creation.


After all, the topics you choose to research, to blog about, and to discuss with friends all begin with the process of sifting through the media abyss yourself and singling out worthwhile information."


What really counts is to create content that is useful, meaningful and helpful for others, whether from direct hand authorship, or by curating the best existing resources.


Insightful. 8/10

How Powerful is Visual Content - here are the Facts & Figures [Infographic] | Content and Curation for Nonprofits | Scoop.it

This article and infographic was posted by Jeff Bullas. We all know visual content attracts attention - here are some highlights on just how powerful it really is in social media.


Excerpt:


"Visual content has been on a rapid upward trajectory over the last 12 months. Social media platforms such as Pinterest and Instagram have taken the social media world by storm. Instagram announced in July that it had acquired 80 million users"


** Pinterest and Instagram have taken the social media world by storm.Instagram announced in July that it had acquired 80 million users. To put some further perspective on its adoption and growth, the visual social media network is now being used by 40% of the worlds top 100 brands.


Simply Measured looked at Facebook’s top 10 brand pages to find out the real numbers and facts and figures on the engagement and sharing levels of photos and vides in comparison to text and discovered:


Videos are Shared Photos are liked 200% more than text updates


To put some perspective on the power of visual content other studies show that Photo and video posts on Pinterest are referring more traffic than Twitter, Stumbleupon, LinkedIn and Google+.

How To Do News Curation Without Having Problems with Duplicate Content

How To Do News Curation Without Having Problems with Duplicate Content | Content and Curation for Nonprofits | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you have been resisting the idea of curating news content on your web site because you are afraid of being penalized for having "duplicate" content, this article will shed some light on what is best to do to avoid it.


By working with titles, writing intros and commentaries to curated posts, linking out to relevant and credible sources, you have many variables at your disposal to make curation work for you, rather than against you.


Just follow the good advice contained in this good article by Josh Cunningham (author of the WP-Drudge for link and news aggregation) and you will be OK. It's the same approach I use to curate all my news channels. It does work.

Informative. Useful. 8/10

A Mix of Algorithms and Human Curators Is The Solution To Content Curation Scalability Issue

A Mix of Algorithms and Human Curators Is The Solution To Content Curation Scalability Issue | Content and Curation for Nonprofits | Scoop.it

Guillame DeCugis: "This is a very interesting piece by Erin Griffith (again!) on the potential scalability issues of content curation. You can pass quickly on her first part where she easily bashes the usual concerns about the curation word being overhyped and over used.


She makes a really good point on her second part, building on the experience of Behance, the platform to publish one's creative work: using a mix of algorithms and human curation is a part of the answer to this scale issue. 


But another way to scale curation is to add a topic-centric layer. In the problem she describes (which is typically Behance's problem), scaling up is tough because curation is being applied to sort out the best content on a unique dimension: a home page that's the same for everyone.


"Behance’s front page could no longer display what algorithms determined was the most popular art within [the] site’s community. Because of boobs. They are universally the most popular thing on the Web, and not even a tasteful, creative site like Behance is safe when the “wisdom of the crowd” is involved.


To be clear — boobs are welcome on Behance, but the site skews toward commercially viable work. A porn pit may entice creative directors but not in the way Behance wants to entice them." she funnily writes.


If you added topics to that, you can solve the problem by having people follow whichever topics they want.


And I'm not talking about the usual 10-20 categories you find on any content sites. I'm talking about long-tail, user-created topics that any user can opt in to follow or unfollow. Boobs fans can then follow dozens of Boobs topics curated by other fellow users without having to pollute the experience for everyone else.


By mixing a topic-centric model with curation, you apply it to as many dimensions as your users will decide to curate. That's the model we've been using at Scoop.it and so far, it scales pretty well, doesn't it?"


Robin Good: For the record you may want to check this video of Gabe Rivera from Techmeme at LeWeb 2008 already discussing this issue and arriving at the same conclusions: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T4Zi_U6iZxU there's no way to build a perfect news or aggregation engine. The best solution is indeed a mix of aggregation and filtering tools matched by a topic-expert curator.

Curate Large Information Collections Into Navigable Presentation-Maps with Mindomo

Curate Large Information Collections Into Navigable Presentation-Maps with Mindomo | Content and Curation for Nonprofits | Scoop.it

Additional Commentary by Beth Kanter

http://www.bethkanter.org


This is just the tool I've been craving for some of larger collections of resource lists and tools.  For example, I have a big messy tool list -0http://socialmedia-strategy.wikispaces.com/Beth%27s+Big+List that I have on a wiki that could definitely be more user friendly if on a mindmap.   And it could embedded into wikis - and exported as PDF.


This is definitely on my to do list to explore ... thank you Robin





----------------------

Robin Good: If you are looking for a content curation, mindmapping and presentation tool rolled into one, I strongly suggest you give a good road test to Mindomo.

I have been a passionate fan of mindmaps since 2007, and have created tons of them to curate my many collection of "best tools" in specific niches or learning maps on dedicated topics. You can see some of them here: http://www.mindmeister.com/users/channel/RobinGood


But with time, and the increased size of my collections, I have been searching for valid alternatives which provided greater speed, better ways to display and view the mapped info and more options to extract value from my collections.


Mindomo, which I have been heavy-testing for the last six-months, is my new reference tool not just for mindmapping but for a) curating large collections of information into a navigable cohesive whole, b) creating prezi-like presentations without needing to become an engineer.


Specifically, Mindomo integrates lots of unique and very valuable features to the basic mindmapping toolset, including:


- Capture content via browser bookmarklet

- Navigate and zoom in-out easily

- Search and embed video clips
- Search and embed images

- Search and embed audio clips

- Automatically credit all media sources utilized

- Customize look of maps in many ways

- Create presentations from your mindmaps

- Import and export to different formats + embed

- Works and syncs on iPad and Android

- Collaborative editing

- Cross-platform offline desktop app

- Custom URLs for your mindmaps

- just to name a few.


Here's a good example of what I have been able to "curate" with Mindomo:


1) http://bit.ly/ContentCurationUniverse

a very large collection of content curation tools


2) www.mindomo.com/mindmap/content-curation-for-education-98ccaad217074a07b9bff8b76effab8e 

a navigable "presentation-map"


MindMeister and other mindmapping tools still provide good value, but in my humble opinion Mindomo, with its own limits and idiosyncracies, has earned my trust as being the most effective, powerful and feature-rich visual curation tool.


Give it a try and let me know what you think.

Robin, on the second map, I'm not able to see the whole map in one view - only each section .. is that a settings thing?

One thing I don't like about Prezi and the presentation in Mindomo is the zoom in and zoom out - it gives me vertigo .. maybe I'm just old school .. (LOL) .. but I imagine it gives you different transition effects.

Content curation is not just simply slap dash sharing.   There are the nuances of techniques - the shifting, shorting, filtering, summarizing. What what if anything is it aligned with?  


Is it helping you create a presentation for a work/professional goal?

Is it helping generate content as part of your content strategy?

Is it helping you build your professional expertise or network?


Content curation - and content creation need to be aligned with a strategic purpose.

Robin Good: Participatory culture writer and book author Henry Jenkins interviews cyberculture pioneer Howard Rheingold (Net Smart, 2012) by asking him to explain some of the concepts that have helped him become a paladin of the  and "new literacies" so essential for survival in the always-on information-world we live in today.


This is part three of a long and in-depth interview (Part 2, Part 1) covering key concepts and ideas as the value of "community" and "networks", the architecture of participation, affinity working spaces, and curation.

Here is a short excerpt of Howard response to a question about curation and its value as both a “fundamental building block” of networked communities and as an important form of participation:


Howard Rheingold: "...at the fundamental level, curation depends on individuals making mindful and informed decisions in a publicly detectable way.


Certainly just clicking on a link, “liking” or “plussing” an item online, adding a tag to a photograph is a lightweight element that can be aggregated in valuable ways (ask Facebook).


But the kind of curation that is already mining the mountains of Internet ore for useful and trustworthy nuggets of knowledge, and the kind that will come in the future, has a strong literacy element.


Curators don’t just add good-looking resources to lists, or add their vote through a link or like, they summarize and contextualize in their own words, explicitly explain why the resource is worthy of attention, choose relevant excerpts, tag thoughtfully, group resources and clearly describe the grouping criteria."


In other words, "curators" are the ones creating the metadata needed to empower our emerging collective intelligence.


Curation Is The Social Choice About What Is Worth Paying Attention To.


Good stuff. In-depth. Insightful. 8/10

You're welcome :)

It's interesting interesting that you mention POV and stance, as that is not something I had explicitly articulated for myself, but naturally it must be implicitly true. In that sense, it reminds me (again) that curation forces self-reflection in order to present the content better, and that can only be a good thing.

Agree with posts about curation guiding self reflection. This interview in particular is top value and two of my fav people indeed.

8. This links a series of three interviews quite lengthy but there is some insightful information for the novice in the digital information age. There is video links within the article, including a great question and answer with Robin Good on curation. The video brings a balance to this inclusion.
