Why You Need To Curate Content and How To Be A Master At It

Why You Need To Curate Content and How To Be A Master At It | Cuppa | Scoop.it

 

This is a great piece by Heidi Cohen on why your marketing needs content curation and 12 attributes of a successful curation strategy.  This is one of the best articles I've seen on this topic in a very long time.

 

As I said, I've seen many pieces on curation but if you're like me, everytime I read about this, I always find something new or am reminded of ways I can polish what I'm doing.

 

Here are some of the highlights.........

 

Intro:

 

Why Your Marketing Needs Content Curation

 

At its core, content curation is like a great editor or blogger who brings his unique taste and understanding of his target audience to his selection of the best content for his readers.


**He provides context for the content so that it's more than a collection of information


3 Reasons your content marketing strategy needs content curation:


1. Offering your audience a combination of original and third party content provides a branded context for your work


2. Curating other people's content positions you and/or your organization as a tastemaker in your field


3. Creating sufficient content is a marketing and business challenge


12 Attributes of a successful content curation strategy:


Here are a few things that caught my attention:


 *Has defined measurable goals


As part of your content marketing strategy and by extension

your marketing plan, content curation needs objectives that

are associated with your business.


**Targets a specific audience


. *Content curation like other forms of content marketing requires

understanding your readers' marketing persona

 

** Involves a community

 

*As with any social media or content marketing, your

audience should be at the heart of your content efforts.

 

**Clay Shirky says it best:

 

"Curation comes up when people

realize that it isn't just about information seeking, it's also

about synchronizing a community"


Selected and reviewed by Jan Gordon covering "Curation, Social Business and Beyond"

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, January 18, 2013 8:39 PM

This is a really good article about content curation. There is nothing wrong with doing content curation, as it provides insight from multiple sources. As this article points out, the trick is curating content that adds value to whatever it is that you are adding the content to. In my case, it's my blog. I've followed most of these guidelines instinctively, because I want to provide quality information to share with fellow technical communicators and e-learning specialists. 

 

Read this one carefully, as it's chock full of good advice.

Transformational Teacher: Chris Edwards on Personalized Learning

Transformational Teacher: Chris Edwards on Personalized Learning | Cuppa | Scoop.it

Chris Edwards' shared in our interview why he decided to personalize learning and the results he has experienced with his learners: engaged and motivated!

 

Q. Why did you decide to personalize learning?

A. I decided to personalise learning in my classroom about a year ago. I watched a TED talk by Sir Ken Robinson (the king of creativity) speaking about how he believes that our current education system is killing creativity. What made me think the most was when he said this: “Shakespeare was in someone’s class once, right?” And I thought wow! I have never considered who I may have in my class! When I started thinking in this way, it changed everything. It made me realise that the most important thing was ensuring that every individual child in my class, realised and reached their full potential.

 

Q. How are learners in your class changing?

A. The learners in my class are changing in a very noticeable way. The learners in my class are no longer passive. They are engaged in their own learning and are motivated. Most importantly, they are learning to be resourceful and resilient. Learning anything is an inherently frustrating process.

 

Read this insiteful interview and take a look a the pictures of Chris' personalized learning environment where his learners are thriving!
