Is Content Curation an Ethical Content Strategy?

Is Content Curation an Ethical Content Strategy? | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

http://hyperallergic.com/51670/virginia-center-for-the-creative-arts-social-media-artists-fellowships/

 

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».

7 Things You Should Know About Social Content Curation | EDUCAUSE

7 Things You Should Know About Social Content Curation | EDUCAUSE | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

"An emerging class of online tools, including Pinterest, Scoop.it, EduClipper, and others, allows users to quickly and easily gather, organize, and share collections of online resources, particularly visual content. These applications make it easy to collect and post disparate bits of content, providing visual groupings at a glance that can reveal important patterns. In academic settings, they can facilitate more visual thinking and discussion among students while providing a means to share collections of online content.

The 7 Things You Should Know About... series from the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) provides concise information on emerging learning technologies. Each brief focuses on a single technology and describes what it is, where it is going, and why it matters to teaching and learning. Use these briefs for a no-jargon, quick overview of a topic and share them with time-pressed colleagues."

An image is a powerful way to convey an idea, that’s why services like Pinterest are getting a lot of attention, which implies it is meaningful to its users.

 

Curation tools like Pinterest can be used as educational tools al all levels. In some colleges and universities Pinterest is brought into the classroom, or used to offer boards focused on academic resources at the school.

Curation tools for researchers - Handbook of social media for researchers and supervisors

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.
