Paula Silva's insight:

Although in the educational field this question may not be as critical as it is for marketing, it’s something one has to have in mind all the time.

Always give credit to content which is not yours (whatever its format).

 

As the author of the post writes: content curation «involves only using carefully selected parts of the content, adding relevant commentary or insight, or highlighting specific parts of it, and always assigning credit to the content’s originator (…)». Whether you are curating for educational purposes or for profit curation is an «honest endeavor that adds value, offers fresh perspectives, and enhances the ecosystem of ideas that is the digital landscape».

Keep Your Content Fresh With Scoop.it

Keep Your Content Fresh With Scoop.it | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

 

Matt Tschoegl from “The Edublogger” has a post about practical ideas on how to put Scoop.it to good use. Some users find Scoop.it and other curating tools hard to work with. Their first impression is that they are looking at what seems a clutter of images and headlines where it isn’t easy to distinguish who is talking about what.

Good curation has the opposite effect: it aims at organizing information and making it comprehensible and clear. The best way to convince new users about the benefits of curation is to show good examples and let them see the relevance for themselves.

 

Some of Matt’s practical ideas to use with Scoop.it:

 

1- Create a simple webpage for a single topic;

2- Publish a magazine for colleagues or like-minded types on pertinent topics;

3- Organize in one location materials to use in different classes;

4- Keep an updated page to teach about an active news item.

Content Curation: How To Cite, Credit and Attribute Other People's Content on the Web | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

We all agree with Robin Good that this is a "good guide providing the basic principles that should be followed when using, reposting, citing or quoting other people's content (both text and images)".
Crediting images is something that has been forgotten but it deserves the same attention as written documents.
The article is very complete, covering the topics:
How To Cite Content in Blog Posts;
How To Cite Content in Social Media;
How to Give Credit to Guest Bloggers and Ghost Writers;
How to Cite Images and Visual Content.

 

Those are premisses that also apply when curating content for whatever purposes.

More than just a pretty picture? How sociologists (and other social scientists) can use Pinterest

More than just a pretty picture? How sociologists (and other social scientists) can use Pinterest | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

      According to Deborah Lupton, who did research work on Pinterest, this social media platform has the potential to be of great value to sociologists and scientists.  Some school teachers are already using Pinterest as a pedagogical resource, but this does not apply to academics.

      Pinterest is relevant for the purposes of curating, displaying and (we could add) sharing images related to the topic being researched or taught about. The purposes mentioned by Deborah Lupton for the use of Pinterest by sociologists are suitable to a mere student or professor. 

 

      Broadly, you can use Pinterest boards as:

 - Disclosure and promotion of your academic work (your published material on books, blog posts and the websites) and material on the themes you are studying (like infographics, tables, mind maps). You can also use boards to promote research and teaching initiatives at an institutional level.

 - Repository of images on a specific learning topic;      

 - Aggregation of images from other users which are relevant for your working topic.

 

      To use Pinterest as a pedagogical tool:

-  Create a board on a subject you are teaching, use somebody else’s board or reuse pins from other boards;

-  Ask students to create their own boards (or preferably a collaborative one) so that this might trigger comment, analyses, discussion and writing of texts (essays, etc.);

-  Collaborate with other academics to share ideas and resources for teaching.

Curators: A Herculean Task Is Ahead of You - and Be Careful

Curators: A Herculean Task Is Ahead of You - and Be Careful | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

Steven Rosenbaum has an interesting article on Fast Company, outlining the reasons why curation is here to stay and the importance that curators will play in your information consumption diet.

 

He writes: "...So anyone who steps up and volunteers to curate in their area of knowledge and passion is taking on a Herculean task.

 

They're going to stand between the web and their readers, using all of the tools at their disposal to "listen" to the web, and then pull out of the data stream nuggets of wisdom, breaking news, important new voices, and other salient details.

 

It's real work, and requires a tireless commitment to being engaged and ready to rebroadcast timely material.

 

While there may be an economic benefit for being a "thought leader" and "trusted curator," it's not going to happen overnight.

 

Which is to say, being a superhero is often a thankless job.

 

The growth in content, both in terms of pure volume and the speed of publishing, has raised some questions about what best practices are in the curation space."

 

He also has some pretty straightforward advice on what, as a curator, you should never do:

 

"1. If you don't add context, or opinion, or voice and simply lift content, it's stealing.

 

2. If you don't provide attribution, and a link back to the source, it's stealing.

 

3. If you take a large portion of the original content, it's stealing.

 

4. If someone asks you not to curate their material, and you don't respect that request, it's stealing.

 

5. Respect published rights. If images don't allow creative commons use, reach out to the image creator--don't just grab it and ask questions later."

 

And he definitely has a point on all of these. 

 

Recommended. 7/10

Curation tools for researchers - Handbook of social media for researchers and supervisors | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

Here’s some more evidence that curation is crucial for researchers, whether you choose to be a curator or you choose to follow curators.
According to Minocha and Petre (2012) from The Open University, UK (1), curation is useful for researchers and for developing research skills, as it involves:
- information management;
- curating content on the research topic of interest which appears on a variety of different media;
- chances of attracting interesting people to a researcher’s website;
- development of your "infotention", mindfulness, and concentration;
- self-empowerment, helping you to be seen and trusted as a “topic expert”.

 

Become a content curator in three steps:
1- Do it on a specific topic so that you are seen as a trusted source or expert on that topic;
2- Share only the best stuff;
3- Do it continuously so that you are continuously providing up-to-date content.

Digital Curation or Content Curation?

Digital Curation or Content Curation? | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

 

If you search and pay attention to the concept of “content curation”, you reach the conclusion that some users refer to “content curation” as “digital curation” - something which is likely to lead to confusion.

 

Digital Curation is the management and preservation of digital material to ensure accessibility over the long-term (1). It’s a discipline with embedded practice and research (2). Wikipedia displays a similar definition: “the process of establishing and developing long term repositories of digital assets for current and future reference by researchers, scientists, historians, and scholars.”

 

If you want to refer to: “the act of researching, finding, filtering, editing, and collecting valuable information resources into meaningful collections, guides or galleries to help a specific group of people make sense/learn or be updated on a specific topic” (3) then what you mean is Content Curation. That’s what you can do on Scoop.it - you curate or you aggregate (which is a step prior to content curation).

 

Time to ask: “Who curates those who curate the curators”?

Are you aware of the difference between Digital Curation and Content Curation or do you use the concepts interchangeably? Your feedback will be welcome.

A Flipped Classroom - Students as Curators with Storify | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

Sherry Stones is presenting the workshop: “A Flipped Classroom: Students as Curators with Storify”.

Storify will be used to demonstrate design multimodal/multimedia research-based assignments, due to its features such as Hashtag specific Tweets, Flicker and Instagram images, Soundcloud audios and Youtube videos.  

Most of the expected outcomes of the workshop can be associated to teaching and learning in general.

 

Important ideas:

 

a) Storify has a great educational potential;

b) You can organize Storify content based on theme or topic;

c) You can easily embed Hashtag specific Tweets, Flicker and Instagram images, Soundcloud audios and Youtube videos;

d) It helps students develop research, synthesis and presentation skills;

f) It helps students to evaluate the credibility and relevance of web sources;

g) It enables teachers to set assignments and rubric;

h) You can embed a Storify page into a Blog;

i) Other types of Open Access Content are great for embedding on Storify, such as: Xtranormal, Goanimate, Animoto animations; Infographics and Flicker images; Google Docs; Vimeo, Big Think, and Academic Earth videos; Webcomics; Prezi and Google Slideshows; Learning Objects.

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.

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.

What Curation Is About: Drew Meyers Introduces Curation to Real Estate People

What Curation Is About: Drew Meyers Introduces Curation to Real Estate People | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: You may not like this site, its focus (on real estate) or its writing style, but to me Drew Meyers does hit the nail right on the head, in introducing and explaining content curation, to a likely audience of real-estate agents.

 

He writes: "At the end of the day, the most important thing to remember about curation is that it’s not about you.

 

...It is about delivering GREAT content consistently over and extended period of time.

 

Curation is about building long term credibility, establishing real relationships, and earning your place as your audience’s go-to source for anything related to real estate."

 

And that is indeed a great synthesis of what curation really is. But he adds more to make sure you are 100% with us and he excels at doing so:

 

"FACT n.1) Everyone is now a publisher.

 

FACT n.2) Many SUCK at creating quality content.

 

FACT n.3) There is too much, for lack of a better word, shit on the web as a result.

 

FACT n.4): I don’t have time to filter through the shit myself and find the valuable/ insightful/interesting content.

 

FACT n.5): I value people who curate content in very specific niches for me.

 

FACT n.6): The people that curate content in areas I’m interested in earn my trust over time, and are much more likely to earn my business if I need goods/services they provide."

 

Bravo Drew. 

 

Good read. 8/10
