Here's a valuable resource on content curation, "distilled" by the students of the DCurate MOOC lead Martin Couzins and Sam Burrough which organizes over 60 different articles, guides and tools on the topic.

 

This resources collection is presented in the form of a Pearltrees interactive map, organized into eight sections:

 

1. Why Do We Need Curators

 

2. What Is Digital Curation

 

3. Aggregation vs. Curation

 

4. It's All About Audience

 

5. How Do We Find Valuable Content

 

6. How Do You Decide What To Curate

 

7. Curation Tools

 

8. Contributions from participants

 

If you are new to content curation this is a good resource to bookmark and keep as a reference.

The Urgency of Digital Curation in the Digital Humanities

The Urgency of Digital Curation in the Digital Humanities | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

In their seminal report, Our Cultural Commonwealth (2006), the American Council of Learned Societies underscored the need for scholars engaged in digital humanities work to leverage their access to data both to expand their audience to the general public and to generate new research questions. "Now is the Future Now?" argues that the progress made in digital humanities toward these goals has depended and will depend not only on digital data, but also on their appropriate curation. The article defines digital humanities, data, so-called Big Data, and digital curation. Next it examines digital curation initiatives in the sciences and in the humanities that occurred before the release of Our Cultural Commonwealth. It then considers and evaluates the digital curation work undertaken in the sciences and in the humanities after the report’s publication. In theory and in practice digital curation has benefited substantially from practices developed and tested first in the natural sciences and subsequently adapted for and extended in the humanities. Finally, the piece explores the future work necessary to facilitate symbiosis between digital curation and digital humanities. Collaboration and cooperation, transcending geographical, disciplinary, and institutional boundaries, data sharing, policies and planning, education and training, sustainability — all remain pressing issues in 2013.

Jo Blannin - The Know Tech Teacher's curator insight, September 11, 10:21 PM

This great article shows how we can use Tumblr in our classrooms. I love the suggestion of a quick and easy website or hosting an online debate. They also point out that we need to protect kids online, but they need experience to learn how to do this - Tumblr could be a good way to do this :0)


Do you use Tumblr?

I have an account but don't check it much...maybe I should be?

Any tips or advice for me?

Curation: Creatively Filtering Content

Curation: Creatively Filtering Content | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it
“Curation is a life skill and an important part of being digitally literate. Educators need to know how to curate information so they can teach students how they can curate content for research, their interests and passion. As part of this process educators need to encourage students to curate information using techniques that address their own personal learning needs.”

We introduce content curation using both Diigo and Scoop.it in our E-Learning for Educators class. It's our firm belief that online teachers must be information fluent and that they teach those skills to their online students.


We also see these skills as a strong foundation for building personal learning networks.

loving your figure! obvious for curators, not so much for students and teachers
Aparna Nagaraj's curator insight, August 29, 10:30 AM

You come across a lot of stuff, find some of them valuable, find value in some parts, and you see connections between the different stuff you come across. You curate by filtering, extracting, and bringing out the connection between the stuff you find, and this curated new stuff becomes more valuable than those already shared stuff that you found. Valuable enough to be shared to others who are looking for similar stuff as you are.

6 Great tools for content curation - Daily Genius

6 Great tools for content curation - Daily Genius | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"I read recently that content curation is dead. I have a few different arguments against this concept, but for now, I’ll keep it short and sweet: Content curation is not dead, and while the debate over curating content online vs creating new content will rage on and on, curating content for other reasons is still going strong.

 That said, there are a lot of different ways to go about content curation, so we’ve test driven a few different tools so you can figure out which might work best for you whether you’re curating content for work projects, assigning it as a school project, for your own professional development, or personal interests."

I'm rescooping this for three reasons. First, the term "curation" is fairly new to me and it is nice to see how different forms it can take. Secondly, I read so many blogposts entitled "10 tools for this" or "35 reasons for that". It is nice too see one of those where all of the 6 tools are actually great. Third, the fact that I actually have experience with three of the six tools makes me feel good. So enjoy :)

Curate's Egg

Curate's Egg | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

When I had the 5 I needed I explained to the room that these 5 people were now curators. Each curator would be responsible for one big idea and I wanted them to curate 10 good small ideas around that single big idea. I stressed this wasn’t a brainstorm and that quality of ideas was more valuable than quantity but that I did need 10 ideas for each. The business target for me was to get 50 small ideas.

I clearly stated these curators were now in control and the most powerful people in the room – I was implicitly handing the control in this part of the session to them.  This is a core part of the 50 big ideas – releasing the control as a L&D professional and letting people get on with it. As a curator I was expecting them to aggregate ideas and conversation, sift and sort ideas, filter out what would work and which would not, collaborate with each other, to work together to achieve the expected result of 50 good small ideas.

 

I specifically asked for curators. If we’re to move from the L&D professional of old to the new role of performance support we need to understand how to curate, market, negotiate and question.

The concept of digital curation has evolved from its original use. While the digital preservation of artifacts is still the primary domain of digital curation, due to Web 2.0/social media applications it has allowed anyone to easily create a topic centered library online to share with the world. Assets found online can now be quickly collated into a visually appealing web site using freely available tools. This descriptive paper explores the potential use of digital curation within three tertiary institutions.

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Ibrar Bhatt writes: "Digital curation therefore is not just about finding relevant material, although that is a significant part of it, but is also about creating a specific and unique experience by utilising the resulting materials which then become contextualised within a new space. A curator, therefore, whether she is a journalist-by-proxy such as Popova or a student completing an assignment in a classroom, not only collects and interprets, but also creates a new experience with it. In this respect, curation is a process of problem solving, re-assembling,re-creating, and stewardship of other people’s writing."
