I thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to present a workshop on using curation tools for professional development as well as teaching and learning and after a quick overview from me on some of the hows and whys and a quick look my top curation tools, it was about rolling our sleeves up, getting our fingers tapping those keyboards and doing it for ourselves.

Content Curation for Personal Learning and Sharing

Content Curation for Personal Learning and Sharing | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

 

This was the meme I, @josemota, and @etutoria prepared for The PLE Conference 2012 (1). Memes of this sort are supposed to be fun -  that’s what we tried to achieve through the choice of images.

 

I see myself as a wannabe content curator, someone who has to work hard, never mind the reasons.  

 

What about you? How do people see you as a curator? How do you see others as content curators?

 

Curate and have fun too!

7 Things You Should Know About Social Content Curation | EDUCAUSE.edu

7 Things You Should Know About Social Content Curation | EDUCAUSE.edu | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

An emerging class of online tools, including Pinterest, Scoop.it, EduClipper, and others, allows users to quickly and easily gather, organize, and share collections of online resources, particularly visual content. These applications make it easy to collect and post disparate bits of content, providing visual groupings at a glance that can reveal important patterns. In academic settings, they can facilitate more visual thinking and discussion among students while providing a means to share collections of online content.

The 7 Things You Should Know About... series from the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) provides concise information on emerging learning technologies. Each brief focuses on a single technology and describes what it is, where it is going, and why it matters to teaching and learning. Use these briefs for a no-jargon, quick overview of a topic and share them with time-pressed colleagues.

Demand Better Curation

Demand Better Curation | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it
I’m really scared for my generation, you know. The thing that scares me most is Tumblr. I hate what Tumblr has become… Instead of kids going out and making their own moments, they’re just taking these images and living vicariously through other people’s moments. It just kills me. Then you’ll meet them and they’re just the biggest turkey in the world. They don’t actually embody any of those things. They just emulate.

Insights Into the Hot Trend of Social Media Content Curation

Insights Into the Hot Trend of Social Media Content Curation | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

 

"Online content curation is a hot trend as business owners and professionals realize that content is vital to add value to their customers and prospects.

 

The trend was already evident in 2011 but 2012 saw an outright explosion of the phenomenon.

 

Content curation is the art of selecting content that is appropriate and then organising and publishing it in a way that is relevant for the topic of choice.

 

Editors with the aid of journalists create and collect content then edit and then publish.
Journalism is shifting more and more from the quest for the perfect “scoop” to a more organized and reasoned activity of content curation.

 

The technology of the web and the rise of the social media networks is providing sources of content that can provide curation in ways that were not previously possible.
The content curation platform Scoop.it is an example how we can all become magazine editors and content curators without the overhead of hiring editors or journalists. Scoop.it was established in 2011 with the goal of making content curation easy and accessible to everyone...."

 

 

In the guest post pubblished by Jeff Bullas' blog, Intervistato.com's Maria Petrescu interviews Scoop.it's co-founder Marc Rougier.

Calling All Content Curators | From the Bell Tower

Calling All Content Curators | From the Bell Tower | Digital Curation for Teachers | Scoop.it

Thankless job?

Curation is hard work. It’s time consuming to gather and then sift through vast amounts of content in order to present your audience with just the right items. Add more time if you try to put each one into some context that indicates why it was selected and what it might mean (such as why this offers just a few items weekly). And don’t expect anyone to thank you or proclaim you the next great library thought leader. I think content curators will ultimately do this thankless job simply because they are passionate about reading in a particular niche area and then sharing the best of what they find with some dedicated followers. If you want to be a content curator, you should also follow a few rules offered by Rosenbaum:
If you don’t add context, opinion, or voice, and simply lift content, it’s stealing.
If you don’t provide attribution and a link back to the source, it’s stealing.
If you take a large portion of the original content, it’s stealing.
If someone asks you not to curate their material, and you don’t respect that request, it’s stealing.
Respect published rights. If images don’t allow Creative Commons use, reach out to the image creator—don’t just grab it and ask questions later.

 

<- does putting it on a blog or in a partiuclar twitter stream add context? (JS)
