To Get the Most Out of Tablets, Use Smart Curation

To Get the Most Out of Tablets, Use Smart Curation | Curation: the New Search | Scoop.it
How might efforts to curate benefit from the portability and ubiquity of mobile devices? Tools like Evernote and GoodReads allow for easy and valuable curation. But the harder questions are pedagogical and curricular.

What a wonderful concept - curating things we percieve to be beautiful. Howard Gardner is such an amazing thinker!

 

I also love the term "relevance portfolio" –this is exactly what I think will be a stepping stone towards personalized learning through content curation.

There are a numbers of tablet apps for iOS and other operating systems that can enable sharing, creating, and implementing projects in a mobile learning environment.

Curation is an interesting topic that I had never considered previously. I need to look into this further. Any suggestions would certainly be welcome.

Vicki Hansen's insight:

Langwitches blog post appropriatelynotes that Twitter is a real-time curation tool that requires "expertise or interest" to separate the "collectors" from the "curators"".

There's no question that Dennis O'Connor has found much success on Scoop.it. It wasn't all coincidental, though. Dennis shared with us two of his best curation secrets and tricks:

 

1. Develop multiple sources for your topics
It's important to carefully think through the keywords that you set for your topic so that Scoop.it can crawl the web and provide you with interesting and relevant content and inspiration. In addition to taking full advantage of this, Dennis also uses other tools like Twitter, StumbleUpon, and Prismatic to find content to share on Scoop.it. Once he finds the content he wants to share with his audience, he uses Scoop.it as his social media hub to add value to that content and share it everywhere.

 

2. Tag your posts
Dennis takes a lot of time to tag each of his posts. This allows him, he explained, to assemble publications based upon his tagged topics. When he's using his information on Scoop.it for his E-learning classes, it's easy for him to filter his Scoop.it pages based upon different subjects and easily compile a list of posts and articles on appropriate topics to provide to his students. Something interesting that Dennis does with his tagged articles is to pull them by subject and create "special editions" of his topics on his blog for special classes and events that he is teaching.

THANK YOU FOR SHARING.

Tina Jameson's curator insight, February 19, 5:13 PM

While the original Scoop graphic and comments relate to 'curation skills' - I felt it was relevant to share with students as it offers a model incorporating 'ethical' consideration through the research process.

Great insight to maximize posts!
