7 Content Curation Tools to Stop You From Wasting Your Time | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

To be successful with your social media marketing efforts you need to provide value on your social accounts. And most of the time, this value comes in the form of shared content – a lot of content. And while your own content should always be at the center of your marketing efforts, you can provide a ton more value when you add great content from other people from your niche to the mix.

 

Often, finding this great content to share is what is eating up most of the time young marketers spend on building their social media audience.

All of these sites focus on learning and curation, but could one of them really be the "Pinterest of education"?

 

As one of the fastest-growing social networks, Pinterest's popularity can be attributed to its ease of use and vibrant Pinboards. Recently, a number of similar social curation sites developed specifically for students and teachers have popped up, emulating Pinterest in key ways while focusing on learning. In some cases, they have even made improvements.

 

Here are five such sites that could be contenders for the title "Pinterest of Education"

Why Curation Is Important for Education and Learning: 10 Key Reasons, Tools and Resources

Why Curation Is Important for Education and Learning: 10 Key Reasons, Tools and Resources | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Content curation will play a major role both in the way we "teach" and in the way we educate ourselves on any topic. When and where it will be adopted, it will deeply affect many key aspects of the educational ecosystem.

 

This article, builds up over my recent presentation on Content Curation for Education that I delivered at Emerge2012 virtual conference.

 

In that presentation I claimed that the adoption of "curation approaches" will directly affect the way competences are taught, how textbooks are put together, how students are going to learn about a subject, and more than anything, the value that can be generated for "others" through a personal learning path.

 

If we learn not by memorizing facts, but by collaborating with others in the creation of a meaningful collection-explanations of specific topics/issues/events then, for the first time in history, we can enrich planetary knowledge each time we take on a new learning task.

 

And it's already happening.

 

Yes, we are only at the very early stages, but, in my humble opinion, there are enough signs and indications that this is not going to be something marginal.

 

In this article I outline ten key factors, already at work, which, among others, will very likely pave the way for a much greater and rapid adoption of curation practices in the educational / academic world.

10 Steps To Curate Your Social Media Content With Scoop.it for Increased Value

10 Steps To Curate Your Social Media Content With Scoop.it for Increased Value | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

If you want learn more about social media curation and/or start your own scoop.it you should read this excellent and detailed blog post from Shirley Williams. [note mg]

 

Are you asking the following questions: “What is social media curation?” and “How does it add value?” Are you like many business owners trying to get your head around curation and the associated benefits? Well I have come to realize, you are not alone!

 

In an earlier post I defined curation. In this post I would like us to revisit that definition and share how value can be gained by demonstrating how to use Scoop.it.

 

Reminder of What’s Social Media Curation?

 

With the exponential growth of social networks and blogs, the amount of information on the internet can be overwhelming and time consuming. Consequently, the role of the social media curator has become increasingly more attractive. Social media curation is when you filter, select, review and reposition quality content on the web for a specific audience and/or topic...

Facebook Introduces Pinterest-Style, Curated "Collections"

Facebook Introduces Pinterest-Style, Curated "Collections" | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Facebook has introduced a new curation feature designed to allow its users to collect and organize their favorite "products" into so-called "Collections".

 

According to Hubspot "the new feature called 'Collections,' allows marketers to add “Want” or “Collect” buttons to news feed posts about products."

 

Source: http://blog.hubspot.com/blog/tabid/6307/bid/33698/Facebook-Tests-Pinterest-Style-Feature-Called-Collections.aspx

 

The new FB "Collections" is publicly available to everyone, and it is being tested "with 7 retail partners -- Pottery Barn, Wayfair, Victoria’s Secret, Michael Kors, Neiman Marcus, Smith Optics, and Fab.com."

(you need to go to those FB brad pages to test it).

 

It also seems that the feature can be activated in at least three different ways by one of these three upcoming action buttons:

 

a) "Want": adds the product to a Timeline section of a user's profile called “Wishlist”

 

b) "Collect": adds the item to a Collection called “Products”

 

c) "Like": a special version of the standard "Like" button that also adds the item to “Products”

 

N.B.: While Collections are free for business pages to use, they're only visible to the page's fans. You have to "Like" the page in order to see these types of posts.

Is Content Curation the New Community Builder?

Is Content Curation the New Community Builder? | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

This piece was written by Eric Brown for social media explorer.

 

I selected this article because it reaffirms what many of us already know but it's still good to see this in writing: Content curation and Media Curation (a mix of  machine aggregation and Human Curation) are starting to pick up steam.

 

Here are some highlights:

 

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.”

 

The author says and I agree with him:

 

 

**"The value will be in the expertise of the curator, people will not read junk, and the best of the best curators will create digital domination with vibrant communities".

 

There is also a great quote from Fred Wilson's AVB blog in which he details what he would do if he were starting the Village Voice now:

 

**I would not print anything. I would not hire a ton of writers. I would build a website and a mobile app (or two or three). I would hire a Publisher and a few salespeople.

 

**I would hire an editor and a few journalists. And then I’d go out and find every blog, twitter, facebook, flickr, youtube, and other social media feed out there that is related to downtown NYC

 

**and I would pull it all into an aggregation system where my editor and journalists could cull through the posts coming in, curate them, and then publish them
