How Long Before You Will Instead of Google It?

How Long Before You Will Instead of Google It? | Curation in Higher Education |

From :


"It is really about how the cyber world is changing and shaping the needs and expectations which have evolved beyond mere key word search and how services like will meet those because Google won’t."


In this vibrant praise of, blogger Shred Pillai points out the changes we're seeing in the way we look for information. From basic search, we now look more and more for meaning and context from human experts. And this is what is curation is all about.


This article was also published on the Huffington Post and on Shred's blog, the Lasting Rose.

I guess you can never have enough curating, in this digital age anything that can keep you up to date and help visibility is worth a try. I like the way the simplify everything. I'm not sure but even with all this info I still may feel like I'm missing something and go to the individual sites anyway. But to see what the landscape looks like in a quick view Qwant is pretty cool.

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] | Curation in Higher Education |

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..."

<- 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)
