Is Content Curation in Your Skill Set? It Should Be | Dyslexia, Literacy, and New-Media Literacy | Scoop.it

Curation is a term that is rapidly growing in popularity and is directly impacting the world of workplace learning and performance. In a world where the amount of information available to workers doubles every 18 to 24 months, it is impossible to keep up with the seemingly endless supply of it.

How to stay current on social media (in just 30 minutes a day)

How to stay current on social media (in just 30 minutes a day) | Dyslexia, Literacy, and New-Media Literacy | Scoop.it
Are you crazy busy? These eight easy steps will help you be in the know when it comes to blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and more.

 

Does this scenario sound familiar? You have no time—you’re stuck in meetings all day—yet your boss is asking you to stay on top of all things social media-related. 

After all, you need to continue learning do your job more effectively and efficiently. Plus, you want to stay smart about industry trends. 

Did I get that right? 

It’s the reality for me, and I’m guessing it’s the same for lots of you out there. 

This is the topic I presented on recently at the Southern Public Relations Federation Conference in Destin, Fla., to a group of PR professionals from Florida, Mississippi, Alabama, and Louisiana. 

In my presentation, I laid out eight strategies for staying up-to-date on all the changes, new products/tools, and trends in the digital world. Here they are:

Hi Ken,

Super-fast Content Curation: Add Scoop.it to HootSuite and Go!

Super-fast Content Curation: Add Scoop.it to HootSuite and Go! | Dyslexia, Literacy, and New-Media Literacy | Scoop.it

"Did you know you can now integrate two of the best apps to help you find and share content daily?" writes Liz Wilson on Business2Community.com. 

 

I love the way she describes her Scoop.it community: "It’s a place where you find the leading experts. You will learn from them, benefit from their high-level curation, and connect with them. Some of them will become friends. After a bit more than a year, I have an incredible knowledge network of friendly, helpful people in my Scoop.it community."

 

And also how the Scoop.it App enhances her HootSuite experience: "Until the Scoop.it app came along I hadn’t found a satisfactory way to quickly uncover great content from inside HootSuite. I wanted a quick and easy way to do more of my work from inside Hoot Suite – and this is it."

Open Twitter on any day, at any time, and you’ll find someone to talk to. It doesn’t matter if it’s a national holiday, a religious holiday, or any other time, there is always someone on Twitter. Perhaps more than any other social network Twitter captures what marketers have been working on since the beginning of time, word of mouth. No matter what metric is most important to you, none are more important than the conversion. Which social network to people talk the most on?

Let’s be honest, we don’t like to read big pieces of text. Text-heavy graphs are rather difficult for understanding, especially when dealing with numbers and statistics. That is why illustrations and flowcharts are often used for such kind of information.

An infographic, or a visual representation of study or data, like anything else, can be done right or wrong. How to create a successful infographic? A good idea and a good design.

Plan Before You Post: 5 Steps to Launching a Social Media Campaign.

Plan Before You Post: 5 Steps to Launching a Social Media Campaign. | Dyslexia, Literacy, and New-Media Literacy | Scoop.it

When handling the social media for a client or your company, you need to plan before you post. Prior to the first Facebook post or tweet, follow these five steps to ensure a seamless social media campaign.

 

1. Study the Social Media Sphere
As with all PR campaigns - Consider whom you’re targeting.

 

2. Create an Editorial Calendar

Building an editorial calendar is time consuming, but crucial to helping you stay organized. Develop a weekly social media schedule.

 

3. Build Your Profiles

The first thing to take into account when building profiles is to be consistent across all social media platforms.

 

4. Take Advantage of Technology

There are several sites that help you streamline and simplify your social media campaign - HootSuite is just one example. With this service, you can send content to several platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, all at the same time.

 

5. Conduct a “Soft Launch”

Prior to following anyone on Twitter or “liking” anyone on Facebook, start posting content - at least 50 tweets and 25 FB posts.

Every single teacher is concerned about his/ her teaching practices and the skills involved in this process. How many times have you wondered about a better way to teach the same lesson you have delivered to an eariler class? How often have you used technology to engage your students and improve their learning ? These are some recurring questions we keep regurgitating each time our teaching skills are put to the test.

My 10 Favorite Educational Mind Maps

My 10 Favorite Educational Mind Maps | Dyslexia, Literacy, and New-Media Literacy | Scoop.it

They may look like jumbled and messy flowcharts for the insane, but mind maps are actually extremely useful and perfect tools for brainstorming. You essentially take a flow of ideas and translate them into interconnected webs designed to help clarify your thinking (or mind, as it were).

 

==========================================

 

Gust MEES

 

You can use mindmaps also when you organize an event, to make sure that you don't forget anything, e.g. http://gustmeesfr.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/vdujwtjyx3uq-ri20vw-tipmindmap17-apr-09-15-171.jpg  It's a mindmap which I used in 2004 already to organize a Theater piece about learning basics of #IT-Security which you can follow here http://gustmeesfr.wordpress.com/2011/12/28/securite-pc-et-internettheatre-interactif-et-pedagogique/
