How to Use “Curation” to Boost Content “Creation” | Curation, Gamification, Augmented Reality, connect.me, Singularity, 3D Printer, Technology, Apple, Microsoft, Science, wii, ps3, xbox | Scoop.it

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":-)

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.

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?

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.
