7 Qualities of Highly Effective Content Curators

7 Qualities of Highly Effective Content Curators | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it
Every time I visit the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City, I see something I’ve never seen before. In fact, t’s considered the most influential museum of modern art in the world. With that in mind, meet Klaus Biesenbach. Klaus holds the title “Chief Curator at Large” at MoMA. If you’ve visited the MoMA and walked away impressed (like I have), Klaus has a lot to do with that.

As content curators, we should all aspire to be like Klaus. After all, wouldn’t it be great if our content collections drew as much interest, respect and admiration as the collections at MoMA? In order to achieve this feat, we need to become highly effective content curators. In other words, we need to curate Internet content as we would fine art.

Let’s consider seven habits of content creation that would make Klaus Biesenbach proud. Continue reading →

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

Ibrar Bhatt writes: "Digital curation therefore is not just about finding relevant material, although that is a significant part of it, but is also about creating a specific and unique experience by utilising the resulting materials which then become contextualised within a new space. 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. In this respect, curation is a process of problem solving, re-assembling,re-creating, and stewardship of other people’s writing."

Both great articles about Curation.

 

Sue Gould's curator insight, June 19, 5:09 PM

The face of educational instruction is changing once again.  The relaxed manner in which these notes are representing important content is fabulous.  A cirle is almost complete - as a child this sort of doodling in class was stopped and a punishable offense!  Yet so many tutors, educators, and trainers are idealists and visualise while learning and observing the world around them.  It is great to see that this representation of learning is on a comeback of acceptance.

Mónica Silakowicz's curator insight, June 24, 9:39 AM

Curar contenido es más que simplemente buscar y seleccionar información.

Kate JohnsonMcGregor's curator insight, June 9, 12:05 PM

In the Learning Commons community, this makes sooooo much sense. Inquiry based learning is all about questioning, gathering, re-thinking, re-purposing and sharing information. Teachers and t-l's who practice and model curation in course design will be better equipped to instruct their students in curation. Love this! 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 24, 10:07 PM

Teachers are curators and gatherers by nature. In a manner of speaking, they are hunters and gatherers as they search for and gather resources for learning.

Nancy Jones's curator insight, Today, 11:18 AM
