Curation: Creatively Filtering Content | Sue Waters | The Edublogger

Curation: Creatively Filtering Content | Sue Waters | The Edublogger | Curating Information | Scoop.it

We are living in an era of information overload.  So much content is shared online that curation is needed as a way to get value out of the information flood.

 

Content curation is the process of shifting through the vast abundance of content on the Internet to select the best, most relevant resource, on a specific topic or theme,  so that we can organize, manage and collate the content for ourselves and share with others.

 

Content curation is about working smarter and not harder.  Content curation is also a reflective process; as you curate resources you reflect on their value.  Reflection makes new information stick in your brain.

Curation is a life skill and an important part of being digitally literate.  Educators need to know how to curate information so they can teach students how they can curate content for research, their interests and passion. As part of this process educators need to encourage students to curate information using techniques that address their own personal learning needs.

 

While at the Edutech National Congress & Expo I curated the best resources shared from the Edutech conference into a Flipboard magazine.  An important lesson I learnt from curating the Flipboard magazine is curation is a very personal process.  As individual we have our own different learning styles and techniques; and this can be reflected strongly in how we curate and share content.

I love the comment on the hydrant slide reading " getting information from the internet is like drinking from a fire hydrant".

Searches always bring TOO much information so you feel overwhelmed. Also, we now ALWAYS struggle in determining what is good information, and what is trash. We do indeed feel like we're drowning at times, or just being "hosed" by sites that just waste your time aggregating traffic. I wish there was a browser that would eliminate the needless flow of advertising and extraneous mind numbing trash!

Do you sometimes feel like you’re trying to do too much?


Often we tend to try doing many things at a time without getting the expected results. Even though we’re 100% sure that everything is going as planned, time passes and our expectations are not fulfilled.


Do you also sometimes feel that nothing is progressing? Maybe you’re doing your best, but there is something that seems to be stopping you making headway?

If you think your content is working, I encourage you do a simple exercise: Ask yourself these questions.

 

Do you enjoy writing?Does it help with achieving your career goals?Do you do it just for the sake of it?

Here are some other questions to consider:

 

What’s the purpose of the website? How does it support my online business? What am I trying to achieve?

 

So I would recommend you stop reading this post right now and spend 5 minutes answering those questions.

 

Once you’re done with this simple exercise, come back to take a look at the these three key hacks to improve your websites key assets and grow blog subscribers. These will make a big difference in converting casual visitors into loyal subscribers.

I will keep on trying...
