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

Content Curation for Education and Learning: Robin Good @Emerge2012 Presentation-Map | The Search Revolution: Content Curation | 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.

Content Curators Will Change The Way We Consume Information On The Web

 This is a great article on curation from Finger Tips Music. There is much confusion out there, some people say content curation is just a buzz word, it is so much more and what I've highlighted below is just the tip of the iceberg.

 

Curated by JanLGordon covering  Content Curation, Social Media & Beyond

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

Curating is not just filtering

 

****Curators must keep selections to a rigorous minimum.

 

**One long-running model is the site Very Short List, which selects but one thing a day to inform you about.

 

****The difference between filtering and curating is, however, more than quantitative.

 

******A curator aims to present web content in a manner that removes it from the medium’s inherent endlessness as well as its relentless robotic-ness.

 

****** This can be done only with the care and attention of an individual intelligence.

 

*******A curator, alive to context and nuance, has a voice, a sensibility, a vibe; there is something inherently idiosyncratic about curating.

Blekko’s new social content curation site ROCKZi turns search inside out

Blekko’s new social content curation site ROCKZi turns search inside out | The Search Revolution: Content Curation | Scoop.it
Blekko, the human-curated search engine, on Thursday unveiled a new content curation site, ROCKzi, which lets people consume and socialize around the news they care about in a PInterest-like environment.

"Blekko, which lets people find filtered, in-context search results by using “slashtags,” appeals to power users (like librarians), Markson said. But, taking a cue from from other popular curation sites, ROCKzi was built to bring curation to a wider set of users through low-touch, passive curation tools.

The site surfaces fresh content from news sources curated by power blekko users and displays articles in topic-specific, searchable “news boards,” from “Geekery” and “Glitterati” to “SportZ” and “Red State.” As of now, there are 33 boards but, over the next few weeks and months, it plans to expand to hundreds and then thousands more."

If you have not tried Blekko for traditional searching it is well worth the effort, and based on the reviews of their new social search tool it too would be worth the effort.

What Content Curation Is and How To Do It Right: Margot Bloomenstein [Video]

Robin Good: Good video with Margot Bloomenstein, brand and content strategist, being interviewed and explaining, in very simple terms what "is" and what "it is not".

 

This is a good introduction to what content curation is, and how it is done as it would be explained to someone who knows nothing or very little about it.

 

Good material to show to top management, executives and to those who may be a bit skeptical about the benefits of doing it as well as for those who are just starting to explore this activity.

 

"It’s not about hoarding content indiscriminately, says Bloomstein. You have to have goals in mind from the outset.

 

Not every bit of content you come across will be relevant to your audience, either.

 

The content curation process is intended to determine what is and isn’t important, in addition to what your readers want to see. Then, it’s your job to get that content in front of them."

 

To the point. Recommended. 8/10
