How Can Web 2.0 Curation Tools Be Used in the Classroom?

How Can Web 2.0 Curation Tools Be Used in the Classroom? | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

The role of the curator has always been to help pull together and oversee collections of materials. But just as Web 2.0 has expanded the traditional role of publisher to almost anyone, the role of curator now too is changing. Anyone can “curate” online material, pulling together their own collections.

StartupLive | Scoopit Co-Founder Guillaume Decugis talks curation and it's benefits at SxSWi

StartupLive | Scoopit Co-Founder Guillaume Decugis talks curation and it's benefits at SxSWi | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Arabella Santiago is the founder of Startup Live and the Executive Director of the TechWeek conference in Chicago where I'm speaking in a few months. We had a discussion on the role of curation as an expression form in Austin at SxSWi a few weeks ago and we also touched upon the topic of the coming TechWeek session which is about the trend of remixing content to create something new: "No one wants to be duplicating content, but if you quote content and you put content in context then you can create something which has higher value than the original.

 

It's something we have gotten used to in Music with DJ's and rappers sampling and remixing songs but that the Web makes possible for everyone to do with any form of content. Having been a music entrepreneur before, I like this analogy and I think it shows quite well how a whole creativity potential can be unleashed by new tools and platforms.

The Verge interview: David Carr on curation, crowdsourcing, and the future of journalism

The Verge interview: David Carr on curation, crowdsourcing, and the future of journalism | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

This is a great interview of David Carr, the well-known columnist at the New York Times where he publishes "The Media Equation" on the future of Media and Journalism. It was suggested to me by Serge van Oudenhove: thanks!

 

Carr was a speaker at a recent SxSWi pannel named the Curators and the Curated and he comes back in this interview on his "yes, but" about curation: yes, he believes content curators have an important role to play, quoting Maria Popova who was at that same pannel, but also pointing out the importance of attribution and credits, a "form of compensation" in the sometimes too free-for-all Web.

 

But his interview takes a step back looking at the future of publishing, including the business model challenges in the digital age.

 

He gives interesting persepctives making it a great read.

Why curators should care about SOPA/PIPA Scoop.it

Why curators should care about SOPA/PIPA Scoop.it | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

curation is fundamentally a content-friendly act. This literally means caring about content: caring enough to highlight it, promote it, share it and make other people want to enjoy it as well. This has always happened but historically, this was something done by a minority – a few gatekeepers. In such a model, a few decided what content we were going to consume. But what we’ve seen with Web 2.0 is that we could have a different model with many sharing content to many. As curators multiply and everyone becomes a publisher, we can all see the benefits through the diversity of opinions being expressed, the long-tail of niche topics being covered or the variety of content being discovered.

 

<- Scoop.it blog highlights role of curators. Real danger is of course that curation also means amplification, and amplification means higher visibility of potentially law infringing materials. And that leaves sites like scoop.it, Pinterest and Delicious open to law suits and potential shutdown.

 

One comment they make and Clay Shirky also makes is that the shift of burden of proof under SOPA/PIPA would move away from the "right owners" under DMCA. And I think that is where legislation should be looking... What is this "right"? And is this "right" still sensible in a world that is so different from the world in which patent and copyright was invented? (JS)

A Curator Code to recognize curators' authorship

A Curator Code to recognize curators' authorship | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Yesterday, Maria Popova (@brainpicker), one of the Web's prominent curators proposed the idea of a curator code.

As she's said before, curation is a form of authorship and should be recognized as such.

Hence the need for this code to improve the way we attribute content.

Hello Guillaume, as I wrote in my short piece about Curator's Code, you and Maria should get together and see if there is a simple way to make the two bookmarklets work together, as for now they don't. Have you tried?

Hi Robin. I just talked to her yesterday on that matter in Austin. We're going to have a look at it. Keep you posted!

Networked Knowledge and Combinatorial Creativity

Networked Knowledge and Combinatorial Creativity | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Much of Buddhist philosophy centers around this same idea, this balance between what’s being phrased as “intention” and “attention” – our intentional curiosity about knowledge and growth, and our choice of where to focus our awareness, what to pay attention to.

So that, I think, is the role of information curators: They are our curiosity sherpas, who lead us to things we didn’t know we were interested in until we, well, until we are. Until we pay attention to them — because someone whose taste and opinion we trust points us to them, and we integrate them with our existing pool of resources, and they become a part of our networked knowledge and another LEGO piece in our combinatorial creativity.

So if information discovery plays such a central role in how we fuel our creativity and thus in our creative output, then information discovery is a form of creative labor in and of itself.

 

An absolute must read, from Maria Popova, master curator. Curation is not only a necessity to make sense of the web, it is the path to explore your own creativity :

 

How we choose to pay attention, and relate to information and each other shapes who we become, shapes our creative destiny

 

Truly inspiring.

Is Curation the missing stack of the News-as-Data-Platform Model? (Vote)

Is Curation the missing stack of the News-as-Data-Platform Model? (Vote) | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

We've suggested this topic for a panel or a talk at the next Online News Association conference. 

 

As we see the Publishing and Tech worlds overlap more and more, an interesting way to look at the future of Media is to take an engineering angle. You'll find a summary below and by clicking to the Reddit page of the ONA, you'll be able to vote and comment.

 

"The Web has killed the integrated newspaper model where the same company did everything from writing to publishing and from editing to distribution. To survive in the open internet, media companies need to become platforms that interoperate with others, forming what engineers call stacks when they build something on top of another. One of the stacks that seems obvious in that model is the sharing stack, whether you call it Facebook or Twitter. With the exploding growth of platforms like Tumblr or Pinterest, we're also discovering the importance of a new layer: the curation stack, which as it democratizes, can make everyone a publisher. Are journalists, the historical news curators, ready to embrace that change?"

IBM: Communication and Curation go hand in hand

IBM: Communication and Curation go hand in hand | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it

A must read from Steve Rosenbaum.

 

We know the amazing contribution of Steve on this topic (we had the chance to interview Steve at SxSW this year). He explains here very clearly why curation creates value for a corporate organization such as IBM, not only for its customers, but internally.


"Within the world of corporate communication, there are two schools of thought on this. There are those that say – Clamp Down. No tweeting without authorization. No posts, no photos. No messaging outside of approved channels. And then there are the thinkers who are looking to turn this big noisy mess into value for their brands and corporate parents."

Stop Calling it Curation | Curation in Higher Education | Scoop.it
First, let’s just get clear on the terminology here: “Curation” is an act performed by people with PhDs in art history; the business in which we’re all engaged when we’re tossing links around on the internet is simple “sharing.” And some of us are very good at that!

Most people have neither the time nor the stamina to wade through miles of information looking for the narrow range of content they're interested in. By sifting through fields of haystacks in search of a couple of needles, curators provide a valuable and powerful service. But don't confuse curation with aggregation.
