Fair Use is a contextualised legal framework and is not necessarily applicable in all jurisdictions. It's not ubiquitous.

Curation: Manage Your Attention Not Just Your Time

Curation: Manage Your Attention Not Just Your Time | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

This guest post is by Beth Kanter for Socialbrite and this is great for curators just starting out or a refresher for those of you who have been doing this for a while.

 

She tells you why curation is an important tool in your content strategy and gives you some good suggestions on how to do it effectively which I'm going to focus on here. Curation requires time and energy, and Beth's process really works because I'm doing this myself.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

Manage you attention, not just your time

 

**Don't just create a to-do list; lay it out on a daily and weekly schedules, breaking down key tasks of the project into chunks.

 

**Consider the level of concentration and focus that each type of task or chunk requires and schedule accordingly

 

**Establish rituals: Rituals in your work life are valuable. A mindmap offers a lot of good suggestions for rituals

 

**Managing email and other distractions: Turn off notifications that pop up on your computer, iPad or moble.

 

**Just say no - it's important to engage with your community on social networks but you have to find the right balance. When you're curating, it requires focus, it's best to schedule this first, then do your community management, check your email unless something requires your immediate attention. When you have a plan, it makes everything easier.

Why we need badges in science

Why we need badges in science | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it
In the world of research, as with most vocational settings, there’s a lot that gets done that goes unrecognized. That unrecognized work can not only be crucial for getting to the actual research outcome put forward in the form of publications, but also for reflecting important skills gained.
Yet, outside of the traditional means of credit—such as degrees, publications, role titles—there is no real way of recognizing this skill with the same issuing authority as with which one receives a degree o

How Content Curation Informs Content Creation

How Content Curation Informs Content Creation | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

If you are actively curating content as a business strategy, you are sitting on a great source of guidance to help you pick good topics. Of course you’ll monitor success of your own content over time. But there’s more. You should keep tabs on a wider range of content to expand your purview.

Barbara Vermaas's curator insight, October 31, 2014 5:43 AM

Content curation is de 1e stap; dit geeft inzicht in wat er al beschikbaar is, en vooral, in wat er nog nodig is. En dus: geeft inzicht op welk gebied je content creation zou kunnen/moeten inzetten.

Dawn Matheson's curator insight, October 31, 2014 10:50 AM

We hear the term a lot - content curation. What is it, and how does it differ from social sharing in general.
