Stop Calling it Curation

Stop Calling it Curation | CuratED | Scoop.it
First, let’s just get clear on the terminology here: “Curation” is an act performed by people with PhDs in art history; the business in which we’re all engaged when we’re tossing links around on the internet is simple “sharing.” And some of us are very good at that!

Are you the education technology curator for your organisation? #curation » Cat's Pyjamas | CuratED | Scoop.it

The activity I’ve just described, that Hans and I were engaged in for our organisations, is digital curation. Us education technologists have probably been acting as digital curators for our organisations around the e-learning and education technology topics for longer than we realise. If you’re an edtech who recognises this, I would love to hear your experiences and thoughts. (JS)

Why curators should care about SOPA/PIPA Scoop.it

Why curators should care about SOPA/PIPA Scoop.it | CuratED | Scoop.it

curation is fundamentally a content-friendly act. This literally means caring about content: caring enough to highlight it, promote it, share it and make other people want to enjoy it as well. This has always happened but historically, this was something done by a minority – a few gatekeepers. In such a model, a few decided what content we were going to consume. But what we’ve seen with Web 2.0 is that we could have a different model with many sharing content to many. As curators multiply and everyone becomes a publisher, we can all see the benefits through the diversity of opinions being expressed, the long-tail of niche topics being covered or the variety of content being discovered.

 

<- Scoop.it blog highlights role of curators. Real danger is of course that curation also means amplification, and amplification means higher visibility of potentially law infringing materials. And that leaves sites like scoop.it, Pinterest and Delicious open to law suits and potential shutdown.

 

One comment they make and Clay Shirky also makes is that the shift of burden of proof under SOPA/PIPA would move away from the "right owners" under DMCA. And I think that is where legislation should be looking... What is this "right"? And is this "right" still sensible in a world that is so different from the world in which patent and copyright was invented? (JS)

Curation Is The New Creation - the local good

Curation Is The New Creation - the local good | CuratED | Scoop.it

Most people have neither the time nor the stamina to wade through miles of information looking for the narrow range of content they're interested in. By sifting through fields of haystacks in search of a couple of needles, curators provide a valuable and powerful service. But don't confuse curation with aggregation.

 

<- lots of good quotes and thinking in this article. a step up from the usual curation articles. (JS)

The Ability To Extract and Communicate Insight from Data It's Going To Be Huge: McKinsey Quarterly [Video]

The Ability To Extract and Communicate Insight from Data It's Going To Be Huge: McKinsey Quarterly [Video] | CuratED | Scoop.it

Robin Good: In January of 2009 the McKinsey Quarterly published a video interview and a full article entitled "Hal Varian on how the Web challenges managers" in which Google’s chief economist told executives in wired organizations how much they needed a sharper understanding of how technology empowers innovation.

 

In the video, Hal Varian says something that if you are trying to understand the emerging curation trend, is as relevant (if not more) today as three years ago when it was first published:

 

"The ability to take data - to be able to understand it, to process it, to extract value from it, to visualize it, to communicate it's going to be a hugely important skill in the next decades, not only at the professional level but even at the educational level for elementary school kids, for high school kids, for college kids.

 

Because now we really do have essentially free and ubiquitous data.

 

So the complimentary scarce factor is the ability to understand that data and extract value from it.

 

I think statisticians are part of it, but it's just a part.

You also want to be able to visualize the data, communicate the data, and utilize it effectively.

 

But I do think those skills - of being able to access, understand, and communicate the insights you get from data analysis - are going to be extremely important..."

 

Video interview: http://bit.ly/googlehalvarianoncuration ;

(go to the section "Workers and managers")

 

You will need to register to read the full original article: http://www.mckinseyquarterly.com/Hal_Varian_on_how_the_Web_challenges_managers_2286 ;

 

 

<- and so what does this mean for education? For educators? For managers? For learners? Can curation skills help them? What do these curation skills consist of? (JS)
