Terry Elliott's insight:

The role of the curator, aircraft carriers as curated destinations, private, personal curation, Aboriginal curation, academic research as curation--and much more.  Curation is maturing in the scholarly realm and the digital realm. 

 

The first article is about the new role of curator and is a profound one.  I feel that it has a new vocabulary that fits in with my work on connected learning:  peripheral vision, polyphonic voice, and improvisation. Money quote: the curator is an agile decoder.

Say goodbye to the video store, hello to the non-profit foundation

Say goodbye to the video store, hello to the non-profit foundation | CurationEd | Scoop.it
How one of the last video stores turned non-profit with an eye on preservation.
Terry Elliott's insight:

Connecting to "customers" means attending to "customers".  And by "customers" I mean any folk you relate to and connect with. You curate for them by all means reasonable and ethical.  The lesson for me here is that whoever you are and whatever you do, you are a magnificent and unique filter for the world.  Your neurons fire in ways that no one else does or can.  If you are attuned to that and share that, you will be adding signal and not noise to the world.

 

That is exactly what this for-profit, old skool video story did.  It re-tuned its signal so that it broadcast on a new, non-profit wavelength whose mission is to preserve the best of a still considerable body of work--the VHS tape.  Beautiful aikido move. Just beautiful.  Anybody else done anything similar to this in a school setting?

 

If my classroom is analogous to VHS then what would it mean to retune that classroom wavelength with all its content?  I am considering this now because I have had a devilish time all summer considering how much my classroom seems to resemble more and more a well-loved but increasingly obsolete museum piece.  

 

How can I take the me that created the content with care and experience and transform it into something of greater value to my audience/students/customers/clients?  I am my classroom, but that is the VHS of future ed unless I find a way to become a something else.  I don't want a total teacher makeover.  I want to shift what I already do in a way that makes similar sense to the main point in this article.  I don't just want to just recategorize the tapes on the shelves of the Titanic Video Store.

 

Perhaps the way to do that is to view the classroom with its attendant content and affordances as a fully-functioning connection jukebox.  You measure its effectiveness by how much it brings together the players in the service of both their own interests and something larger than their own self-interest.  

 

That will be where I am headed in #ccourses this term. Tomorrow as I begin my term I will present this to my new clients/customers/audience/students and we shall see what they have to say about shifting their stance a bit and recalibrating their vision of what constitutes success in a writing "classroom".

Introducing The Curator’s Code: A Standard for Honoring Attribution of Discovery Across the Web

Introducing The Curator’s Code: A Standard for Honoring Attribution of Discovery Across the Web | CurationEd | Scoop.it

I am struck by Steven Johnson remix quote, "Chance favors the connected mind."  And I admire Popova's attempt to corral the idea of 'curation' into a manifesto.

 

Again, the humble bookmarklet is proving to be the catalyst for bringing together the bone, muscle, and sinew of the Internet in ways that continually surprise me.  I am not sure whether there needs to be a distinction between the attribution of direct and indirect discovery for the user of the link.  How much does knowing the connection to the original curator was either of these ?  I am sure there is a good answer to this, but I am not sure what it is. 

 

Any way you look at it, the 'actionable code of ethics' that this represents is as handy as a pocket knife in a mailroom.

Content Curation as a Problem-Solving, Re-Assembling and Stewardship Process

Content Curation as a Problem-Solving, Re-Assembling and Stewardship Process | CurationEd | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good, Yashy Tohsaku
Terry Elliott's insight:

The image above amounts to a template for curating a digital space:

 

1. Find something timeless to curate.

2. Fit it into a pattern that makes sense.

3. Find a larger context for why this matters.

4. Share widely.

 

I think this fits into Harold Jarche’s simpler seek-sense-share framework.

 

Why does this matter?  If curation is all that Tufte and Bhatt say it is, then why aren’t scaffolds like these being used more often for training and in learning systems?  I am using the curation tool Scoop.it to do curation with my freshman comp students.  They use Scoop.it as their introductory platform  for beginning to acquire the skills  Tufte enumerates above that are part of the academic and business spaces they will eventually live in.  I am hoping they will demonstrate why it curation matters as they seek-sense-share their way to long and short form ‘texts’ that they will be writing all semester. That will include essays, tweets, G+ community posts, blog posts, research papers, emails, plusses, favs, instagrams, zeegas, slideshares, pictures, and a massive mobile presence from their own digital spaces.  Wish me luck.

"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."


Creo que esta definición zanja la discusión sobre si un "Content Curator" es una adaptación moderna al "Documentalista" de los medios tradicionales.


De muy recomendada lectura para los que nos dedicamos a la Curación de Contenidos.

Your Brain on Nature: Forest Bathing and Reduced Stress

Your Brain on Nature: Forest Bathing and Reduced Stress | CurationEd | Scoop.it
Studies show shinrin-yoku, also known as forest bathing or time spent in green spaces, can reduce the stress hormone cortisol and increase your immune defense system.
Terry Elliott's insight:

What does work like this suggest about digital spaces?  My mom always kicked me out of the house when I had been playing inside too much.  Do we need to strongly suggest that folks get out and play?  Is there any way to re-create the effect of nature in digital spaces?  Screensavers that engage after so many minutes with high rez pics of nature?  Or in the act of doing 'learning walks', of going outside and getting our dose of nature and recording that walk, that we gain even more good.  I don't know, but maybe we should all have that voice in your head that says, "Get down. Get out and play." 

 

BTW, my mother was a whiz at going outside and playing with us:  marbles, baseball, basketball, kites, mumbledypeg (a freaking knife game and she was scary good).  The purest athlete I have ever known.

Curation is sharing with discernment

Curation is sharing with discernment | CurationEd | Scoop.it

 

I think Paula Silva summed it up pretty well:

 

One of the important elements of the tripartite model of content curation is sharing. It assumes the value which is determined by the purpose and the objectives set by the topic curator(s). Sharing may, for example, follow a marketing strategy or may be moved by the spontaneity of the curator (or the user/follower). With regard to Personal Knowledge Management (PKM), Harold Jarche highlights a significant aspect to guide sharing: discernment, i.e., when sharing you must be aware of the following aspects: when, with whom and how. Sharing can be done openly, through a blog, or it can be targeted to a particular community or network. Like PKM, when you are curating, a discerning sharing also contributes to build trust. If a curator sets himself as a reliable node for a community or network, his intervention will have a greater value and impact.

Terry Elliott's comment, October 5, 2012 11:32 AM
I really am drawn by the graphic and the abstraction, discernment, is full of resonants, aftertones, undertones, and tones yet to be heard but imminent. Discernment changes daily. I think this is a reminder that we need to approach curation with a 'prayer' of focus. For example, in curation-ed I need to invoke a hope to find words, minds, and text that will help us all seek/filter/create sense/discern/and share.
