LynnॐT's curator insight, February 13, 2013 12:33 PM

"Now, marketing communications must be framed by the conversation, and not just by the marketer, but by all the parties to the conversation. This requires curation.

 

Someone has to be the raconteur, the one who shares anecdotes in a skillful, amusing and engaging manner. Someone has to either begin or redirect a conversation; to put it on a path. The definition of that path, what we’re going to talk about, teed up in a thoughtful, strategic way, but never in a way that is didactic. Shaping and guiding conversation in a very intentional but seemingly unintentional way will be one of the requisite gifts of the great brand curators.

The other role the curator plays is that of succeeding at rallying other good raconteurs to the conversation stream. It’s not quite the heavy-handed role that a museum curator plays in deciding what gets into the exhibit, or not, but similar. The social media stream curator spots participants and content that ought to be served to the conversation and encourages it into the stream. Like the museum curator, the brand curator says to the interlocutors, “Here’s what we’re talking about. Let me highlight this good observation or example. What do you have to share?”

Jim Lerman's curator insight, February 11, 2013 8:02 PM

I spent a lot of time checking this app out. It seems to be a really excellent way to create presentations on an iPad and deliver them using a variety of methods -- including screencasting directly from the iPad to any type of device (TV, computer, phone, or other iPads).The demos show uses in dealthcare, education, business, and PR/advertsing. The pricing model is a bit steep for schools, but maybe with enough pressure they will modify that. Looks like an app that offers a great deal of functionality. Do give it a try.

Comment please.

Five Effective Ways To Make Content Curation Work On Your Blog

Five Effective Ways To Make Content Curation Work On Your Blog | Digitized media | Scoop.it

 

 

Susan Gunelius does a great job of suggesting how to put to good use the content curation potential on your own blog site.

 

Here her first two recommendations:


1) Publish Editorialized Content that You've Curated:
It's important to understand the difference between content aggregation, content syndication, and content curation before you can effectively curate content to publish on your blog.


2) Publish Curated Round-up Blog Posts:
You could publish a weekly round-up post where you share links and descriptions of great content from multiple sources about a specific topic. You can even add your own brief commentary with each link.

 

 

 

Good advice. Useful. Resourceful. 7/10

 

To get the remaining points, please read full original article here: http://weblogs.about.com/od/writingablog/tp/5-Ways-To-Curate-Content-On-Your-Blog.htm

"A few months ago education expert Sandy Speicher was kind enough to share her thoughts with me on the question: What's different when you look at the world of education through the lens of design?

 

"Today I’m proud to share the newly relaunched Design Thinking for Educators toolkit. This toolkit supports teachers in using design thinking tools to become agents of change in their classrooms, schools, and communities by designing more effective curriculum, spaces, tools, and systems. Created in partnership with educators, the toolkit includes real-world classroom experiences and an accompanying workbook to help teachers determine which challenges to address.

"Please share this free toolkit with educators in your network, and tell us: What’s your favorite tool in the new Design Thinking for Educators Toolkit?"

5 Learning Strategies That Make Students Curious | TeachThought

5 Learning Strategies That Make Students Curious | TeachThought | Digitized media | Scoop.it

By Terry Heick

 

"Education is simultaneously the most noble and hubristic of all endeavors. This may all reek of sensationalism, but watch anyone at play, honing a craft, lost in a book, or engaged in a digital simulation and you’ll see a completely different person—one there physically, but far removed in spirit.

In a better place.

 

"Causing this in a classroom is possible, but is as often the result of good fortune than good planning. The best substitutes that can masquerade as curiosity are dutiful compliance and engagement. Neither of these are curiosity, which has among its sources a strong sense of volition, accountability, and curiosity."

How Educators and Schools Can Make the Most of Google Hangouts | Edutopia

How Educators and Schools Can Make the Most of Google Hangouts | Edutopia | Digitized media | Scoop.it

By Mary Beth Hertz


"A Hangout is a web-based tool created by Google for communicating through video. Up to ten people can "hang out" at one time in a virtual "room." A Hangout can be as simple or as complex as needed for the task at hand. It can be used simply to converse or, through the use of extra apps and add-ons that Google provides, a Hangout can become a robust, virtual meeting space.

"Who Can Start One?

"One of the best aspects of Google Hangouts is that all you need is a Google Plus account to start one. If you already use Gmail, that means you already have a Google account, and all you would need to do is set up your Google Plus account. Anyone you want to talk to also needs to have a Google account and a Google Plus account set up. Once those first steps are out of the way, all you have to do is click "Start a Hangout," invite some people and begin your live video conference! For more information, watch this simple overview of starting a Hangout."

Robin Good's curator insight, January 25, 2013 12:09 PM


Human curation is in demand. The ability to have someone who can do background research, and can collect relevant links, related stories, images and videos on a specific topic or for a specific assignment is not something you easily find around.


This is what Newscred, a highly automated news aggregator, has realized and immediately met with a dedicated offering for its customers.


From the original article on Paidcontent.org: "NewsCred, a tech-intensive news aggregator, is an up-and-coming player in the media industry thanks to licensing agreements with elite publishers like the Economist and Bloomberg.


The company relies on these partnership deals and its own algorithms to ship stories to hundreds of publishers and brands like Pepsi and Overstock that are looking for quality content.


NewsCred has long relied on automated curation tools to find and deliver relevant content to its clients, but now the company is adding something more to its journalism — humans.


This morning, the company announced a new service named Editorial Curation that lets NewsCred clients buy hands-on human help for their story collection."

Guiding questions help set the expectation for what students learn, and pre/post assessments establish baseline knowledge to gauge student learning.
