Robin, thank you once again for pointing out the broken link.

There's only ONE broken link of which I am aware. The creation of eBook has been a four month long process and during the course of it one of the links has gone dark. The Color Association of the United States is a perfectly valid, and captivating example of picture curation, as noted in my previous comment. Lastly,the FedEx site is a perfectly valid example of curation that has served its purpose (criticizing the bailout), and is hence no longer updated -- but is still an interesting example of curation as a marketing tool.

There's nothing "curious" going on here. One of the sites has gone dark, as you pointed out. We have since updated the eBook to denote that the site is no longer active. Thanks for sharing the link -- hope you and your readership enjoy it.

I think this type of publication is right on the mark in serving the needs of your audience and my criticism was only directed at highlighting how important, for anyone involved in this field, me included, to pay great attention to details as the reader often does not have the time to appreciate what is not immediately evident.

Please keep up such great work as it helps the whole industry grow while educating customers with great examples.

For our clients with web hosting services, we will be adding this neat tool to your websites over the next few days.  A few things about this tool that add value are the following:

1.  Scoopit is a great tool for content curation.  Each practice plays an important role as a resource for eye care information and also as a local community member.  We will develop your Scoopit pages to meet these goals

2.  Social Sharing is becoming more and more important.  Scoopit's tools integrate very well with the Social Platforms we've developed for our clients.

3. SEO is becoming more and more dependant on niche content that is dynamic and circulated throughout the web.  Scoopit's services allow for domain hosting, thereby leading very relevant traffic in your region back to your websites.



I've utilized ScoopIt quite a bit as a content curator for Social Media and also for Biomarkers and Personalized Medicine.  This is a very clean platfrom that offers a great way to archive the data we are sharing on Twitter, Facebook, and Other Platfroms

Three Factors To Select What News Stories To Curate: Current, Interesting, Applicable

Three Factors To Select What News Stories To Curate: Current, Interesting, Applicable | Digitized media | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good

Robin Good's curator insight, January 12, 2013 4:17 AM


To choose which news story to curate and pass on to your readers, is not always something easy to do.


My personal suggestion is to look only for the most interesting and relevant stories for your audience while leaving out anything that is mildly interesting. I'd always go for quality over quantity and I would not discard little-read stories or dated ones, because of these two factors. Rather I'd select them on the basis of their immediate usefulness to my reader and not on the one of their freshness or recency.


Serena Matter, of the Canadian Public Relations Society, has just published a short article suggesting three key criteria to employ in selecting what news to curate each day. She writes:


"Finding content to share online can be a challenge, especially when your goal is to provide information of interest to your followers.


In many instances, it is easier to re-tweet something that appears in your newsfeed, even if it’s not that relevant to your industry, than to come up with new material.


However, this wastes a valuable opportunity to engage your online stakeholders. Rather than taking the easy way out, there are a few simple guidelines you can follow to ensure any content you share offers value. When creating or searching for material to share, keep this acronym in mind: C.I.A. (Current, Interesting, Applicable)."


But beware: "current" is a misleading variable, as "something" can be "current" depending on the specific context in which it is presented and it is not an absolute trait of a news story.


A story from two years ago can be made immediately current and relevant simply by relating and connecting it to other information which is directly impacting our present.



Good for beginners. 6/10

Sense-Making Is for Humans: Stowe Boyd on Real-Time Curation in the Enterprise

Sense-Making Is for Humans: Stowe Boyd on Real-Time Curation in the Enterprise | Digitized media | Scoop.it

Robin Good's curator insight, January 12, 2013 12:23 PM


Stowe Boyd takes a look at the story of Twitter hiring a team of real-time human curators to organize its key trending topics and why having humans making such choices is such an important element, not just for Twitter, but for any search engine or  company truly interested in what social conversations are really saying.


He writes on GigaOM: "...this sort of human curation will be increasingly important in the business context.


For example, if a competitor’s product XJ11 is being mentioned all over the social network within your company, understanding why may be critical. Perhaps they have just announced a big sale, or are selling the product line off.  But the new spike in activity is likely to be related to very recent events, and not the long tail of older piece of information about that product. And the most likely candidates to help make sense of the new trend? The people originating the cascading comments in the social communications tools.


[The] Twitter approach [with a team of real-time human curators] is one way to go, although instead of using Mechanical Turk a system that asks the originators of these trends for clarification, it might just message the earliest trend setters to ask them what’s up. Alternatively, an approach like Tumblr’s editorial teams might be employed, where individuals are selected to act as editors or curators, and to actively pull out information that is novel and important, and post it onto topic pages.


Whichever approach is taken, I have no doubt that we will see social curation emerging as a key component of our business social networking tools in the near future.


And we will still be relying on human beings as the key element of sense making, not machinery."



Important topic. Good analysis. 7/10

wanderingsalsero's comment, January 14, 2013 6:08 AM
So...this is saying that 'social curation' is more concerned with extracting and analyzing from a diversity of social threads?
Robin Good's comment, January 14, 2013 8:22 AM
That's certainly implied, but more than that the key takeaway here is that algorithms can't do what humans can, especially when it comes to selecting, evaluating and organizing news stories.

By Richard Byrne

 

"Earlier this month I wrote a glowing review of the Book Creator iPad app. Book Creator allows you to create narrated books on your iPad. Today, Book Creator 2.4 was releasedwith some nice new tools.

 

"The latest version of Book Creator allows you to combine books that you have created using the app. In fact, you can even combine books from multiple iPads. What this means is that you could have students work on the creation of a book together from separate iPads. Have each student work on a chapter then combine all of the chapters into one book. Click here for complete directions on combining books.

 

"With the latest update to Book Creator you can now include hyperlinks in your books, style individual words in your books, and import books. But to me the most exciting option is the option to combine books. To use the latest updates you will need to be using iOS 6."

Teaching Presentation Skills with Ignite

Teaching Presentation Skills with Ignite | Digitized media | Scoop.it

By Andrew Miller

 

"I know that, in my project-based learning classroom, students did presentations all the time for a variety of purposes. One of the key components of a PBL project is the 21st-century skill of presentation or communication. We know that this presentation can take on any number of shapes, from something formal to a podcast or even a poster session. I always struggled with getting quality presentations from my students. I used a variety of teaching techniques and examples, but there is one that I know can really help improve presentation skills: Ignite!

 

"Ignite is a specific genre of presentation. An Ignite presenter only has five minutes to speak about the topic, and 20 slides to do so. Every 15 seconds, slides are moved along automatically. The overall purpose of an Ignite session is to empower and excite the audience around a specific subject matter, idea or topic. Ignite is used at conferences all around the world, at EdCamps, and even within professional organizations and businesses.

 

"Ignite is similar to PechaKucha, where you have 20 slides that change every 20 seconds. Usually, someone is "offstage" to time the event by changing slides, which forces the presenter to stay on task and move forward in the presentation. The slides contain only images, which the presenter prepares. However, the presenter is usually not allowed to prepare a script. This demands improvisation and creativity while still trying to craft a message."
