Teaching Students to Become Curators of Ideas: The Curation Project

Teaching Students to Become Curators of Ideas: The Curation Project | Curation Education & Design | Scoop.it

"Over the last couple of years, I’ve come to think of my role as a teacher as that of a curator of ideas" says Corinne Weisgerber who teaches Social Media and Communication at St Edwards Unniversity in Austin, TX (if you haven't yet, check out her great prez here).

 

As she explained in this post, the Curation Project was about getting her students "to set up a network of online mentors using social media tools" and "to identify experts in their field and connect with them in order to build a personal learning network (PLN)." 

 

The idea behing the PNL is to help them discover valuable information through social search that they wouldn't have discovered otherwise.

 

Interesting project and read.

 

And great work by the students who used various curation platforms for the project, including Storify and Scoop.it (links in the post)

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

10 Steps To Curate Your Social Media Content With Scoop.it for Increased Value | Social Media Pearls | Curation Education & Design | Scoop.it

This is a very precise guide to using Scoop.it that Shirley Williams published on Social Media Pearls. We love the way she shared her introduction to Scoop.it:

"First, Let me share a story on my introduction to Scoop.it. I wrote a blogpost on “storytelling”. I received a trackback to Scoop.it. I followed it to find a curated post by Karen Dietz sharing her perspective and summary of my post with my link still intact. I used this new platform to thank her and started following her web-magazine (Just Story It). The outcome: Karen gained a new targeted follower and I gained new traffic to my site. Another curator, Martin Gysler did exactly the same; I really liked his posts and I started to follow him but this time I joined Scoop.it!"

A lot of you have commented on why you liked Scoop.it first because it was simple but stocked to it because of the community it provided. We love to see that happen!

Sharon Hurley Hall wrote another piece on Scoop.it, this time giving great tips on how to drive traffic to your Web site using Scoop.it. As she puts it: "Curating content increases your authority, but it’s also a great way to drive traffic to your site."

 

The tips she gives are very useful and join some other testimonials on the same topic, such as Chris' from RootWebSolutions.

 

Thanks for sharing these, Sharon!

Remixing Digital Media, Curation & Content Marketing for all at the TechWeek Conference in ChicagoScoop.it | Curation Education & Design | Scoop.it

Curation is going to be a big topic at the TechWeek Conference starting this Friday 6/22 in Chicago. I’ll be speaking at two sessions related to it but there are several others worth looking at as they show how important Curation is becoming as a trend. Not just to the Social Media experts who predicted it, but now also to people and businesses everywhere.

Spark Tech Talk: Content Curation and Distribution is King

Spark Tech Talk: Content Curation and Distribution is King | Curation Education & Design | Scoop.it

This is a podcast I recorded on Curation for Spark Tech Talk - "a regular podcast and a community of leaders discussing content in the areas of social media, technology, gaming, entertainment, business and more..."

 

I had the privilege to be joined by Oliver Hsiang from StumbleUpon and Gary Griffiths from Trap.it. 

 

It was great to have a dynamic conversation with both of them on the background and evolution of Curation as we all brought our different perspectives.

 

Enjoy!

"Often, I come across websites that re-publish or link to my articles here on MakeUseOf. This is how I discovered Scoop.it!"

 

This is how Bakari Chavanu introduces a very complete review of Scoop.it on MakeUseOf.com. We always like to see awareness for the platform grow virally as well as site publishers embrace it and write about us. And we also feel great reading "the setup was easy and there are a few easy-to-use features that enable you to populate your page very quickly."

 

Thanks!

Curation tools to help you cope with info-overload

Curation tools to help you cope with info-overload | Curation Education & Design | Scoop.it

"My top three preferred platforms for sourcing and sorting through qualified curators and their content are Twitter, Scoop.it and Google Plus" says Debra Askanase on the Socialbrite blog.

 

It's interesting to read how she explains her daily routine with Scoop.it which involved both publishing and following topics she has a professional interest in. "If you have only 30 minutes each day to read the latest news in your industry, start with Scoop.it; it serves up the newest information in a very readable format."

 

Check out her topics, including Facebook research and best practices.

Scoop.it : Curating Made Easy, Social Sharing With Wings. | Curation Education & Design | Scoop.it

"As startup marketers, we particularly seek solutions to cut through crowds of content to engage more than just friends and followers, but much larger (incremental) audiences drawn to the same topics and interests. And then there was Scoop.it: curating made easy, content sharing with Red Bull (ish) wings."

 

Michelle Fitzgerald, the founder of Get Scrappy interviewed me last week as part of her "Think Big, Act Small" series which focuses on Content Marketing for Startups and SMB's with industry innovators.

 

We talked about the interest graph, what Scoop.it brings to it and how startups can leverage it.

Bonjour Olivier. Même si j'y perds mon latin j'ose espérer que la situation est redevenue normale. En ce qui concerne l'orientation donnée à ce Scoop-It, j'aime bien venir tous les jours le consulter.

Bonjour Olivier, à mon tour de vous dire également que j'aime beaucoup Scoop-It et j'apprécie d'y venir tous les jours ! J'y découvre des sites magnifiques.
oliviersc's comment, June 22, 2012 2:16 PM
Merci, Denise et Pierre ; je n'avais pas de crise existentialiste sur le sujet et rebondissais juste, sur l'article, en avouant que je n'utilisais pas Scoop.it comme il s'était vu. Mais c'est ça : créer ; les gens, ensuite font ce qu'ils sentent... Si j'ai paru énervé ou je ne sais, c'était à cause de la panne de Twitter que l'on pouvait prendre pour une attaque d'extrémistes... Bonne soirée à vous !
