YouTube's Curation Vision - The Impact.ForbesNow that YouTube has revealed that Curation is core to their strategy of contextualizing video content, and Curators will be paid, leaders in the Fair Use and Remix community are taking notice.

 

It’s a broad perspective on curation.
Aufderheide, believes that content curators deserve to be acknowledge this new content ecosystem. She states that: “curators are in the same class of creative actors as editors and museum/gallery curators. They know a field of production, they exercise standards, they use that knowledge and judgment to showcase work in new contexts that add meaning”.

Curators create through selection and so they contribute “the most participatory and productive era of cultural expression in the history of the world”.

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.

Curation is sharing with discernment

Curation is sharing with discernment | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

 

One of the important elements of the tripartite model of content curation is sharing. It assumes the value which is determined by the purpose and the objectives set by the topic curator(s). Sharing may, for example, follow a marketing strategy or may be moved by the spontaneity of the curator (or the user/follower). With regard to Personal Knowledge Management (PKM), Harold Jarche highlights a significant aspect to guide sharing: discernment, i.e., when sharing you must be aware of the following aspects: when, with whom and how. Sharing can be done openly, through a blog, or it can be targeted to a particular community or network. Like PKM, when you are curating, a discerning sharing also contributes to build trust. If a curator sets himself as a reliable node for a community or network, his intervention will have a greater value and impact.

Terry Elliott's comment, October 5, 2012 11:32 AM
I really am drawn by the graphic and the abstraction, discernment, is full of resonants, aftertones, undertones, and tones yet to be heard but imminent. Discernment changes daily. I think this is a reminder that we need to approach curation with a 'prayer' of focus. For example, in curation-ed I need to invoke a hope to find words, minds, and text that will help us all seek/filter/create sense/discern/and share.

Content Curation: How To Cite, Credit and Attribute Other People's Content on the Web

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.

Paraphrasing Robin Good’s comment (http://d20innovation.d20blogs.org/2012/07/07/understanding-content-curation/) on this valuable post, Nancy, the author, succeeded in dissecting the key value-creation traits of curation and their relevance to the future of education.
Both students and teachers can learn through content curation of a topic. Robin reminds us that curating requires an immersion into the topic, which implies learn to research, verify, question, analyze and understand the relationships between the different information items involved.

Content Curation for Education and Learning: Robin Good @Emerge2012 Presentation-Map

Content Curation for Education and Learning: Robin Good @Emerge2012 Presentation-Map | Content Curation for Online Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: I believe that content curation will play a very important role in the future of education and learning and this presentation-map focuses on this topic.

I have identified at least ten reasons that are transforming and weakening the education-certification system as it is now, and may rapidly give way to new ways of teaching, learning and getting certified which will likely involve a great deal of curation (both for those who teach/guide and those who want to learn).

 

In this presentation-map I am introducing the concept of curation for education, the key factors that I see are transforming traditional academic institutions and the learning industry in general, and the tools, resources and examples that are relevant to those working in these fields and wanting to find out more.

 

As part of my workshop session during the emerge2012 conference in which I have first presented these ideas, I have also created an "open", collaborative wiki-map where, you are welcome to contribute inspiring curated collections. You will find instructions on how to contribute to it at the end of this presentation.

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.

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.

Instructors are information curators. At iTteachU (University of Alaska), this is how teachers are using content curation tools in the classroom to:

 

- create group activities;

- organize and disseminate new content as a sort of digital handout to students in online and flipped classrooms;

- collect and share professional reading materials with students;

- foster discussion about current events;

- encourage students to become both content creators and curators;

- connect to experts outside class and to the world knowledge base;

- critique information available on the web. teach students to curate social media;

- help students gain credibility and exposure;

- keep track of online research efforts;

- create reading lists;

- help students gain access to the ‘collective intelligence’ of the Internet;

 

What about you? Do you use curation tools for personal or pedagogical purposes? Let us know. Share your experience on curation with us.

I´m working on this, because true curation is more than aggregation.

 

Steve Rosenbaum said:

«The word curation may seem to be a synonym for aggregation, but in fact it’s a double for “intelligent aggregation”. Museum curators do not, I hope, assemble as much art as possible for an exhibition; rather they apply judgment in selecting what they deem to be appropriate.»

What I appreciate the most about curation which is mentioned in this post: think of a plan before you start curating:
«1. Decide on a goal for curating content – why are you doing it?
2. Set a schedule – curate regularly, even if it’s just 1 hour a week
3. Choose your topic – make sure it is linked to your goal/ brand
4. Choose your sources – don’t wander aimlessly online
5. Scan, evaluate & select the best content
6. Read the best content in depth
7. Think about the content and decide why it is important to your curation
8. Annotate/ comment on/ evaluate the content to give it context for your audience
9. Share it and engage your audience – ask for comments, contributions.»

The Key Benefits of Content Curation by Beth Kanter: Presentation + Curated Tweets

Robin Good: Here is the official presentation that Beth Kanter delivered yesterday, accompanied by a curated bundle of user contributions (mostly tweets) and relevant resources (stats, some visuals and other resources) outlining the key benefits that content curation can bring.

 

To do so, she used Storify.com which allowed her to pull in the most relevant and interesting tweets that had been posted during her webinar, as well as other relevant resources on the topics she covered.

 

My three picks from this Storify bundle:

 

- Mindless sharing is not content curation (Dara Goldberg)

 

- RT @ntenorg: Good content curators don't just share or collect links, they explain & make sense of a particular topic for others. (Steve Heye)

 

- ...@hjarche Seek-Sense-Share (PKM) model, he offers an online workshop bit.ly/HPV07M

Robin thanks so much for highlighting the storify summary - I did that right after the session because I wanted to do a quick content analysis of the tweets and see what resonated. I also did the same for the chat logs so I could gather up the questions and make sure they were answered. The session was based on an article I wrote recently on why content curation - real content curation as you describe it - can benefit nonprofits. How it can enhance staff expertise and reduce information overload. Here's a blog post that wrote sharing some of the other resources, including many of yours. http://www.bethkanter.org/?p=5690

A Flipped Classroom - Students as Curators with Storify

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.
