How to use content curation in your class

How to use content curation in your class | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

 

Instructors are information curators. At iTteachU (University of Alaska), this is how teachers are using content curation tools in the classroom to:

 

- create group activities;

- organize and disseminate new content as a sort of digital handout to students in online and flipped classrooms;

- collect and share professional reading materials with students;

- foster discussion about current events;

- encourage students to become both content creators and curators;

- connect to experts outside class and to the world knowledge base;

- critique information available on the web. teach students to curate social media;

- help students gain credibility and exposure;

- keep track of online research efforts;

- create reading lists;

- help students gain access to the ‘collective intelligence’ of the Internet;

 

What about you? Do you use curation tools for personal or pedagogical purposes? Let us know. Share your experience on curation with us.

There are some pitfalls to sharing without reading.

  • The story could be far worse quality than you anticipated, and it’d reflect poorly on your tastes and opinions.
  • The story could have a misleading headline. It could take an entirely different angle than you expected.
  • The words, language, and visuals may not be inline with your brand standards or policies.
  • You might be asked to give your opinion on the article.
  • Many people view it as a shady practice or even dishonest.

Filomena Gomes's curator insight, April 18, 9:52 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Notwithstanding the viral content-marketing tam-tam keeps selling the idea of content curation as a miracle-shortcut to work less, produce more content and get all of the benefits that an online publisher would want to have, reality has quite a different shade.

To gain reader's attention trust and interest, it is evidently not enough to pull together a few interesting titles while adding a few lines of introductory text.

 

Unless your readers are not very interested themselves into the topic you cover, why would they take recomendations from someone who has not even had the time to fully go through his suggested resources?

Superficially picking apparently interesting content from titles or even automatically selecting content for others to read is like recommending movies or music records based on how much you like their trailers or their cover layouts.

 

Can that be useful beyond attracting some initial extra visibility?

 

How can one become a trusted information source if one does not thoroughly look and understand at what he is about to recommend?

This is why selling or even thinking the idea of using content curation as a time and money-saver is really non-sense.

Again, for some, this type of light content curation may work in attracting some extra visibility in the short-term, but it will be deleterious in the long one, as serious readers discover gradually that content being suggested has not even been read, let alone being summarized, highlighted or contextualized.

Content curation takes serious time.

 

A lot more than the one needed to create normal original content.

To curate content you need to:

Find good content, resources and references. Even if you have good tools, the value is in searching where everyone else is not looking. That takes time.

Read, verify and vet each potential resource, by taking the time needed to do this thoroughly.

Make sense of what that resource communicates or represents / offers and be able to synthesize it for non-experts who will read about it.

Synthesize and highlight the value of the chosen resource within the context of your interest area.

Enrich the resource with relevant references, and related links for those that will want to find out more about it.

Credit and attribute sources and contributors.

 Preserve, classify and archive what you want to curate.

Share, distribute, promote the curated work you have produced. Creating it is not enough.


(While it is certainly possible to do a good curation job without doing exactly all of the tasks I have outlined above, I believe that it is ideal to try to do as many as these as possible, as each adds more value to the end result you will create.)

 

These are many more steps and activities than the ones required to create an original piece of content.

Curation is all about quality, insight and attention to details.

It is not about quantity, speed, saving time, producing more with less.

 
Robert Kisalama's curator insight, April 18, 11:37 AM

truly Curation should not be  merely aggregating different links without  taking off time to reflect indeed it is very to end up like some one buying clothes impulsively only to realise you could have done without some of them.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, January 24, 3:23 AM

It's interesting to see that content curation is evolving from an opportunity to a necessity as communication shifts from traditional methods (PR, advertising, old-style SEO...) to new ones (content marketing, inbound marketing, social media...). In this new world of communication many things have changed and professionals or companies who want to get heard need to consider this question:


Do people listen to you because they have to or because they want to?


As my friend Steve Rosenbaum, author of Curation Nation, puts it in his latest book, Curate This, we can't rely anymore on captive audiences. Consumers filter out spammy messages which is why, to be heard, we have to curate or die.
