The Curator Job Is To Unpack Specialized Information To An Interested Audience

Nancy White's curator insight, May 31, 2013 12:50 PM

Many good ideas can be found here regarding what we need to teach students about curating digital content for learning.  The importance of story - and to really look at something (or read it!).  The importance of asking quesitons and seeking answers before adding it to your curated collection to determine if it is a good fit. There are many parallels to the world of digital curation.

3. aggregazione o curation?

4. tutto sull'audience

5. dove è possibile trovare contenuti di valore

6. che cosa selezionare?

7. strumenti di curation

Robin Good's insight:

 

Here's a valuable resource on content curation, "distilled" by the students of the DCurate MOOC lead Martin Couzins and Sam Burrough which organizes over 60 different articles, guides and tools on the topic.

 

This resources collection is presented in the form of a Pearltrees interactive map, organized into eight sections:

 

1. Why Do We Need Curators

 

2. What Is Digital Curation

 

3. Aggregation vs. Curation

 

4. It's All About Audience

 

5. How Do We Find Valuable Content

 

6. How Do You Decide What To Curate

 

7. Curation Tools

 

8. Contributions from participants

 

If you are new to content curation this is a good resource to bookmark and keep as a reference.

Curation tools like Scoop.it can be used for education and research and can connect a user to a global online community to share content and interests.

Don't Miss
About to be an amazing conversation between GREAT thinkers on Kutcher, Scoop.it, Web 3.0 and the meaning of life here on G+http://bit.ly/195EPQZ 

I know this because my friend @MarkTraphagen just bated the trapped :). Weigh In! 

Scoop.it Rocks

Forbes asks us to bet on a smarter web. Not sure that is a bet I'm willing to make. Forbes is asking the wrong question in the wrong way. I love that they are half promoting Scoop.it as the path to a smarter web, but the zero sum nature of their questioning seems limited and goofystupid. 

Goofystupid because the web is the land of AND not OR. We can have millions following Ashton Kutcher and the elegant and beautiful can exist for those willing to find it. Scoop.it makes elegance and grace easier to find. The one (Kutcher's millions of followers) is not necessarily a sign of the apocalypse nor does it subtract from the other (our ability to find and connect with  "like me" tribes.  

 I write this knowing that drawing an imaginary line between good and evil is a common practice (one I've used too), but the web is capable of rewarding small, medium and large. AND the rewards often fit perfectly :). Kutcher gets the millions of fans he wants and little guys like me will get several people to several hundred a day who contribute, think and expand the dialogue about what Internet marketing is and can be. 

Seems fair to me. That Scoop.it is our tool of choice isn't surprising since it helps curate content. Curation is more important than creation for a host or reasons (greater reach, more efficient content marketing testing and cheap). 

Yes Scoop.it ROCKS AND Kutcher has millions of followers. That is NOT the seventh sign and we don't all need to hoard water and can goods :).

We Are All Curators Now
No on can create all the content they need. No one. Even if you could create a MOUNTAIN of content the way the "new Google" works is you will be talking to yourself about yourself. 

Since you've presumably sold everything to yourself you are ever going to buy (more or less), better to engage others and content curation is the best "new idea" for such engagement.

This Huffington Post article goes so far as to proclaim a "Curation Economy". They should know because the HuffPost shows just how much you can achieve with an army of authors, a Digg-Like preference engine and spreading the table with enough content that any eventuality is more than covered.

I wrote about the power of the multi-author, multi-thread content marketing platform on Curatti a few weeks ago (Why There Is A Curatti In Your Future http://curatti.com/curatti-in-your-future/ ) and those truths are becoming more and more self evident daily.

Personal lessons on content curation in educational blogs | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

Via CarlesRuizConde
Paula Silva's insight:

A personal story on curation for educational purposes. Author’s highlights, a testimony of a meaningful curation:

Content curation is not merely selecting sources and aggregate them and even less in an automated style. If you don’t apply your voice, as a storyteller, there will be no engagement with your community.

Content curation implies that each curated resource will acquire a specific (new) meaning,  according to the context it is displayed.

Which service should a curator employ? The best service is not only the one that suits the curator’s narrative and technical skills but also the needs and the consumption information.

blogbrevity's comment, August 5, 2013 6:20 AM
Great opportunity to explain the difference! Permamarks is a "hybrid" way to save links, and the basic version is free. Permamarks creates ONE link that is BOTH a bookmark and an archive at the point of time YOU viewed it: http://pmrks.com/cronut-for-saving-links. When you share a permamark, it provides content in the "context" of when you viewed it. That is what makes Permamarks so valuable for scooping. It preserves a link to a current "realtime" page, but if that page has been removed or changed, you automatically have an archived version at the point in time you captured it. Your scoop.it pages stay relevant and free of dead links. This is very different from other archiving or caching services you can go back to and research pages or links archived at "their" point in time (which may be different from "your" point in time.) Robin, this reminds me of when I first defined curation as different from aggregation because curation presented a "point of view." This is so important to curation. Now an individual can save the internet from their own "point of view." Thank you, again, for this great post and discussions.

Web Curation And New Professions: The Content Curator

Web Curation And New Professions: The Content Curator | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article on Mashable:
"Today, however, curation encompasses a whole new catalog of professions, brands and tools — and most revolve around the web.

A curator ingests, analyzes and contextualizes web content and information of a particular nature onto a platform or into a format we can understand. In other words, a curator is like that person at the beach with the metal detector, surfacing items and relics of perceived value. Only, a web curator shares those gems of content with their online audiences.

Some believe "curator" to be a reappropriated, throwaway term, one that simply elevates marginally focused web users.

Some media sites choose to curate articles already published and reported by other sites. For instance, Boing Boing and The Awl feed links that reference news reported by other sites around the web, tailoring content that will resonate with their readership.

More and more people are taking the reins into their own hands. Consumer curators are flocking to sites like The Fancy to browse products and silo them into categories. Other curation tools aren't as consumer-driven but nonetheless help users organize and structure web content that matters to them.

As much as the term gets criticized, curation requires patience, resourcefulness and a keen editing eye. It means becoming fluent in one particular dialect of the web, versus trying to speak its entire language. It's the reason journalists have beats, and the reason you chose one major in college, instead of seven.
Perhaps the best part? Curation is a never-ending job, and it never gets boring..."
