Content Curation:... by Simple Marketing Now ... | SlideShare

 As I prepare my part on the collaborative workshop for the PLE Conference 2012, “Content Curation for Personal Learning and Sharing” (http://pleconf.org/program/all-sessions/a10/), I toss this idea: why not getting started by learning with marketers?

This presentation “Content Curation: Bringing meaning to chaos” based on the Info360 2012 presentation with Pawan Deshpande, Arnold Waldstein and Christine Whittemore is an example of amount of aspects we can learn about curation for personal learning with social media marketers.

Content Curation Is the New Community Builder

Content Curation Is the New Community Builder | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

Great post written by Eric Brown for Social Media Explorer - This is what caught my attention:

 

Curation — the act of human editors adding their work to the machines that gather, organize and filter content.

 

“Curation comes up when search stops working,” says author and NYU Professor Clay Shirky. But it’s more than a human-powered filter.

 

“Curation comes up when people realize that it isn’t just about information seeking, it’s also about synchronizing a community.”

 

Part of the reason that human curation is so critical is simply the vast number of people who are now making and sharing media.

 

“Everyone is a media outlet”, says Shirky. “The point of everyone being a media outlet is really not at all complicated. It just means that we can all put things out in the public view.

Misconception-free content curation

Misconception-free content curation | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

While curating, make sure you: improve the context; add value and expand the meaning. 

Do it for yourself, for individual empowerment and, as a digital citizen, do it to help improve the state of the Web.

A Look at Curation in Education

A Look at Curation in Education | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

Content curation to serve the needs of students and to foster professional exchange.

 

 

Start at the source and turn yourself into a top level curator or start your curation at a later stage in the funnel. Focus on two or three topics at max you want to curate, this way your followers will know what to expect when following you.

 

Your output is only as good as your input. Follow relevant sources you know you can trust to deliver valuable links and sources. Don’t just automatically re-share every single link. Your job is to evaluate whether the information is relevant to your following.

 

Ideas taken from the post: “What comes after the LMS? A Look at Curation in Education” by Kirsten Winkler (http://esl-library.com/blog/2011/08/23/curation-in-education/)
