wanderingsalsero's curator insight, March 27, 2013 4:51 AM

I haven't read this article but I knew right away, when I saw the title, that it was a valuable subject.  I think that if more business people knew who much curation helps their 'don't have time' problem, they'd really be enthusiastic about it. 

 

There's a tendancy, I believe, among business owners to think that people who read their blog, or website (or any other content) expect it to be Pulitzer Prize quality.  I don't think that's true at all.  Nor do customers expect a LOT of content.  They just want to know what the business owner thinks and (in many cases) what they're 'up to'.

 

Curation makes it so easy for business owners to give them that info.

wanderingsalsero's curator insight, April 6, 2013 7:43 PM

Add curation in with mobile video and travel blogging and I think you've got a winning combination.

What Is Curation and Why It's So Relevant? [Video]

Robin Good: A great video animation introducing some of the key ideas, dreams and concepts behind content curation.

 

From the video: "One of the most beautiful things about the Internet is this sort of radical discovery, where you start in a place that you are familiar with, that you trust, and then you drill down and down and chase the white rabbit and then you end up in some wonderland you didn't know existed." 

 

The clip includes thoughts from some unique curators, picked and selected by Percolate, the company sponsoring this video. 

 

Inspiring. Insightful. 8/10

What kind of digital curator are you?

What kind of digital curator are you? | Curation, Gamification, Augmented Reality, connect.me, Singularity, 3D Printer, Technology, Apple, Microsoft, Science, wii, ps3, xbox | Scoop.it

This is an interesting workshop presentation given at #converge11 by Joyce Seitzinger. It has a focus on curation in EduTech but is generic as well in a lot of aspects.

 

In particular, I love the distinction she makes from slide 22 onward between all types of "curators": a fun way of showing what curation best practices should be all about.

I've been exploring the idea of 'the social media classroom' and how I view teachers with an emerging role as curators, but also teaching student the skills of curation so they can get the right resources in an age of ubiquitous information. I'll have to keep in touch.
Tom George's comment, December 14, 2011 9:07 AM
Nice one thanks for this. I have been following your Scoops. You can also set up and share your scoops on Internet Billboards, it's very easy to set up and do and there is no extra effort just a couple clicks. Like this http://t.co/63g5ViEq Also do you have a blog? Just curious.

New Google Search Update Reinforces Need for Content Curation

New Google Search Update Reinforces Need for Content Curation | Curation, Gamification, Augmented Reality, connect.me, Singularity, 3D Printer, Technology, Apple, Microsoft, Science, wii, ps3, xbox | Scoop.it

This article by Jason Fell for entrepreneur.com is important reading for small business owners - particularly those in industries with regular news updates.

 

It clearly demonstrates the need for Small Businesses in some industries to publish Quality Content on a regular basis or risk being skipped in Search and who has time to create fresh content everyday? This is another reason why smart business will learn how to curate relevant content to their audience or hire someone to do it for them.

 

The standout points are:

 

***The Panda update, which put higher priority in high-quality content affected 12% of Search.

 

***The new update, putting more emphasis on "the most up-to-date results" is expected to affect up to 35% of all Google Searches!

 

***"It seems to me that the biggest impact on small-business owners will be that, in some industries, it will be near impossible to get visibility with a small, rarely-updated website," says Matt McGee, executive news editor at SEO-focused news site Search Engine Land.

Curation Meets Storytelling -Telling Stories of Human History Through Objects

Curation Meets Storytelling -Telling Stories of Human History Through Objects | Curation, Gamification, Augmented Reality, connect.me, Singularity, 3D Printer, Technology, Apple, Microsoft, Science, wii, ps3, xbox | Scoop.it

Katherine Schulten & Shannon Doyne wrote this  piece for The New York Times.

 

Curation meets storytelling, so many great gems in this article. This definitely gets my creative juices flowing, what about you?

 

In "Stuff That Defines Us" Carol Vogel writes:

 

"It was a project so audacious that it took 100 curators four years to complete it.

 

****The goal: to tell the history of the world through 100 objects culled from the British Museum’s sprawling collections."

 

Ideas for using the British Museum's "The History of the World in 100 Objects," along with a related Times article and slide show, in the classroom.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

People’s Choices

 

To coincide with the “History of the World in 100 Objects” project, the public was invited to tell their stories about objects that hold significance to them.

 

Activity Ideas

 

Create Your Own Slide Show or Podcast About Important Objects

 

All segments of the BBC’s “A History of the World in 100 Objects” are available online.

 

Listen to a segment about an object that interests you,

 

**taking notes on how narrator Neil MacGregor describes and contextualizes it by telling a story that, as the Times article puts it, “everybody could relate to.”


Next, choose an object from history — whether an artifact of a fascinating era, an invention that changed history, a work of art that intrigues you, or anything else —

 

research it. When it was made? Who made it? How does it reflect its time and place? What does it say about human culture?

Curators Key Requirement: Critical Thinking

Robin Good: Critical thinking is a key strategic skill needed by any serious professional curator. 

 

"Critical thinking provides the keys for our own intellectual independence..." and it helps to move away from "rashy conclusions, mystification and reluctance to question received wisdom, authority and tradition" while learning how to adopt "intellectual discipline" and a way to express clearly ideas while taking personal responsibility for them.

 

Key takeaways from this video:

 

Critical thinking refers to a diverse range of intellectual skills and activities concerned with "evaluating information" as well as our own thought in a disciplined way.
  Critical thinking is not just thinking a lot. To be an effective critical thinker you need to seek out and be guided by "knowledge" and "evidence" that fits with reality even if it refutes what the general consensus may want to believe.
  Critical thinkers cultivate an attitude of curiosity and they are willing to do the work required to keep themselves informed about a subject.
  Critical thinkers do not take claims at face value but utilize scepticism and doubt to suspend judgement and objectively evaluate with facts the claims being made.
  Critical thinkers should evaluate information on the basis of reasoning and not by relying on emotions as claims the factuality of a claim cannot be solely based on the level of emotion that accompanies them or the fact that they may be believed by certain groups.

 

Highly recommended for all curators. 9/10

Thank you for sharing this video and the importance of critical thinking. It is so easy to get into the mindless consumption trap and making ourselves slow down, read, think, question, and seek is so important. It is all about the resisting the urge to click, but to hit the pause button and make yourself think
Mayra Aixa Villar's comment, February 22, 2012 10:14 AM
Grazie come sempre, Robin! You always share valuable information and this video is a great source to reflect on the importance of critical thinking to refine thought processes when curating content. Content curation certainly requires and develops "better thinking".
Gregory Thackston's curator insight, March 17, 2013 4:54 PM

Critical thinking is a key component in addressing autonomous adversity and the need to collaborate in decision making.

This piece was written by Heba Hosny, a guest blogger for Lauralee Walker

 

This article is full of wonderful tips for taking your curation to the next level and embellish your original content.

 

"Content curation rewards are not limited to branding and SEO; it can also enhance the visibility and the quality of your own content."

 

There are many things that caught my attention, here are just a few gems:

 

Curated Content Can Inspire Topics For Created Content

 

If you don't master this one, all the other tips won't make any sense

 

****Understand which topics are irresistible to your target audience

 

My Commentary:

 

I love this one!

 

Here's the tip

 

****Instead of taking the easy route of sharing the topic with your audience, write a blog post to "build on" it.

 

You can build on a topic in different ways:

 

**Beg to differ politely

 

**Provide additional tips and insights

 

**Ask clarifying question(s)

 

My Commentary:

 

This is a great way to add "context" it can start conversations, which invites others to add their comments, bring new observations and more information about a particular topic.

 

**A perfect segue to building relationships, community, doing business and increasing knowledge.

Hi Beth,
I agree with you, I love the feeling of community and the collective wisdom, and you know "curation resonates with me":-)

Pittsburgh Tote Bag Project's comment, November 25, 2011 9:17 PM
This has me thinking critically about how we are integrating social media. Inviting interaction has been a huge challenge. We are stimulating new conversations in real world time, but that's not reflected in comments and so forth. I like using Scoop.It widgets to get the newest scoop onto the bog in a timely manner and take some time to reflect on post content.

How to Curate Addictive Content & Build a Loyal Following

How to Curate Addictive Content & Build a Loyal Following | Curation, Gamification, Augmented Reality, connect.me, Singularity, 3D Printer, Technology, Apple, Microsoft, Science, wii, ps3, xbox | Scoop.it

Jeff Bullas wrote this piece and as always, he gives you some great ideas on how to strategically use content that adresses the needs of your audience.

 

He refers to blogging and using 10 different addictive types of content that attracts readership like a magnet. 

 

This is when:

 

**You're providing solutions through content that addresses their pain points. The same information applies to curating content.

 

**When you consistently add your knowledge and expertise to the mix, you can become the "Go To Portal" for your subscribers.

 

Excerpt:

 

"One thing to keep in mind is that every business or reader has day to day challenges and problems that they want help in solving. Helping customers find solutions and ideas is an easy way to provide addictive content"

 

Here are a few addictive content types.

 

**When you look at these and the others, be thinking about ways you can use these themes to find and curate content for your audience.

 

Mega Lists


**A long list of tips, tactics and answers that provide people with a resource that maps out many ideas that they can go back to as a reference have proven to work well.

 

Research


**The latest research provides signposts for future planning and validates and lends credibility to strategies.

 

**Research does need to be presented with well formatted articles that allow skimming and scanning for “time poor” excecutives!

 

****Bullet points, screen shots and subtitles are all important elements to provide easy reading.
