Robert Scoble On Online Curation

Increasingly, curation is becoming an important participation/collaboration skill for digital citizens. I interviewed Robert Scoble, one of the most prolific...
Ken Savage's insight:

In this interview between Howard Rheingold and Robert Scoble, Scoble argues for knowing about the subject you are curating and knowing good sources in order to be a good curator. Scoble talks about his Twitter experiences and the China earthquake and how his following of thousands of people on Twitter allowed him to successfully crap detect verify patterns and share news. I value this source as not only a required assignment but also because of Rheingold and Scoble's reputations as curators.

Ken Savage's insight:

An interesting article written by Tadej Stanic, the founder and CEO of Edynco an online tool for creating interactive learning maps, about the importance of educators teaching content curation to their students. I find the graphic an interesting, simple way of explaining content curation to students and the links to other blogs and articles which expand content curation support Stanic's argument.

Robin Good on curation

In interview Robin Good, that master of new media (http://masternewmedia.org) about curation -- what it is, what it requires, why it's important, how to do it.
Ken Savage's insight:

Howard Rheingold's interview with Robin Good stresses the importance of curation to help users parse through the flood of information available to us online. Good believes that a good curator should be passionate in the curated subject in order to be sensitive about what sources are valuable. In addition, good curators are transparent and credit the original source while also adding personal commentary and context about the source to verify good sources and customize curation. Collect, select, customize, and share. I value this video not only because it was assigned for class but because it is a conversation between two experts on content curation.
