Interesting take on a few forms of curation that can be used.  Infographic is, as the creator remarked, a little crowded, however the information is useful.

Social Content Curation: An Introductory Guide for Teachers and Students

Social Content Curation: An Introductory Guide for Teachers and Students | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: "7 Things You Should Know About Social Content Curation" is a technology brief from Educause which aims to introduce, explain and illustrate the emerging social curation trend and why it is relevant to teaching and learning.

 

From the official abstract: "An emerging class of online tools, including Pinterest, Scoop.it, EduClipper, and others, allows users to quickly and easily gather, organize, and share collections of online resources, particularly visual content.

 

These applications make it easy to collect and post disparate bits of content, providing visual groupings at a glance that can reveal important patterns.

 

In academic settings, they can facilitate more visual thinking and discussion among students while providing a means to share collections of online content."

 


Informative. Good introductory text. 7/10

The Role of Content Curator in Workplace Learning | E-Learning Academy | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Content curation is a growing trend, helping those who are time poor to stay abreast of specific topics. Curators are an unrealised resource for workplace learning.

 

Curators who critique information provide an additional service to simply gathering RSS feeds of reputable websites. Such curators do well with a blog platform to journal their reflections and opinions.

Five Good Guidelines for Content Curators from Joshua Merritt

Five Good Guidelines for Content Curators from Joshua Merritt | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are looking for ways to improve your content curation efforts, Joshua Merritt has published five useful guidelines to follow.

 

These include abandoning high frequency / high-volume practices, integrating your opinion whenever possible, researching deeper, citing sources and treating curation like original content production.

 

Joshua writes: "If two different people curate and distribute the same content (which happens every day times thousands), what makes the experience of your followers more valuable?


The answer doesn’t have to lie in a single piece of content, but it must lie in the story arch of the greater body of work, and the more you treat each item you curate as a diamond in the rough that needs some extra cutting and polishing to be ready for your audience, the better your content will perform and the more loyalty you will drive in your followers."

 

 

Rightful. 7/10

"Pinterest Pinterest Pinterest. It’s spread like a hot, juicy rumor over Twitter, infecting (or improving, depending on how you look at it) the way we use the Internet. Think of it as the Pinterest-ifictation of the Web.


If Tumblr were designed today it might look like Pinterest. All Pinterest did was take the Tumblr feed — a mishmash of uploaded, reblogged and remixed words and images — and make it easier to skim. Rather than scroll endlessly through a single feed of content, Pinterest displays it in as many columns as your browser width can handle..."

Drucker’s Knowledge Worker in the Age of Social Media: Content Curation for Professional Development

Drucker’s Knowledge Worker in the Age of Social Media: Content Curation for Professional Development | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

"Over half a century ago, management guru Peter Drucker presented the concept of the knowledge worker. Compared to the manual laborer, the knowledge worker focused on quality over quantity and worked more independently as problem solvers."

 

Over the many applications of Social Content Curation, Professional Development has been a strong trend. We keep observing it on Scoop.it but it's also been reported by Social Media influencers.

 

As more and more of us become Knowledge Worker, it should be no suprise that Content takes a growing importance on our Professional lives. So here's our take on it and why we announced this new integration with LinkedIn earlier today.

Facebook Introduces Pinterest-Style, Curated "Collections"

Facebook Introduces Pinterest-Style, Curated "Collections" | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Facebook has introduced a new curation feature designed to allow its users to collect and organize their favorite "products" into so-called "Collections".

 

According to Hubspot "the new feature called 'Collections,' allows marketers to add “Want” or “Collect” buttons to news feed posts about products."

 

Source: http://blog.hubspot.com/blog/tabid/6307/bid/33698/Facebook-Tests-Pinterest-Style-Feature-Called-Collections.aspx

 

The new FB "Collections" is publicly available to everyone, and it is being tested "with 7 retail partners -- Pottery Barn, Wayfair, Victoria’s Secret, Michael Kors, Neiman Marcus, Smith Optics, and Fab.com."

(you need to go to those FB brad pages to test it).

 

It also seems that the feature can be activated in at least three different ways by one of these three upcoming action buttons:

 

a) "Want": adds the product to a Timeline section of a user's profile called “Wishlist”

 

b) "Collect": adds the item to a Collection called “Products”

 

c) "Like": a special version of the standard "Like" button that also adds the item to “Products”

 

N.B.: While Collections are free for business pages to use, they're only visible to the page's fans. You have to "Like" the page in order to see these types of posts.

Learnist is growing in popularity very rapidly and I received my user account only this week. Yet, I can see why people are getting excited. It certainly appears to have great potential. -JL

The software is free, but an optional $9 monthly fee adds premium features, including the ability to share notebooks with collaborators, who can also add to the notebook and see changes in real time..."

The 3 Pillars of Content Curation

The 3 Pillars of Content Curation | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Curation is already becoming an overused word but it's an increasingly important one. Not least because the way in which we discover content that we like or find useful, and how it gets in front of us or gets our attention, is changing radically. With an explosion of choice and noise, and attention becoming the new scarcity, how we choose to curate what gets that attention (or, as below, how it is curated for us) is hugely important to anyone in the business of creating content. And let's face it, that's now everybody. So here's my take on the three pillars of content curation that will increasingly (and already actively) shape the future of content consumption and distribution:

Search and Curate News Stories on Specific Topics with StoryCrawler

Search and Curate News Stories on Specific Topics with StoryCrawler | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Robin Good: StoryCrawler is an upcoming news and content curation platform which allows you to easily track an unlimited number of topics / keywords and to curate selected ones for publication, both on the web, via RSS feed or email.

 

Selected news stories can be, tagged, categorized and fully edited in each and every aspect before being published.

 

Inside the Storycrawler backend, a curator can configure and save an unlimited number of persistent searches monitoring online mentions of events, people, brands inside specific types of content sources (e.g.: social media, news, blogs, etc.).

 

Storycrawler makes your curated news stream available as a RSS feed, as an embeddable javaScript or iFrame code snippet, besides publishing your content directly on your account pages and providing direct sharing options for Facebook and Twitter.

 

From my own limited experience in testing an "unofficial" early Beta version of Storycrawler, it looks like the basics features are all in place while the UI, usability and final output formatting options still having some work to do.

 

P.S.: The platform seems to be targeted at medium to large size, enterprise companies and does not provide for now indications of its pricing plans. You can contact a StoryCrawler representative here: http://www.storycrawler.com/contact/

 

Promising.
