Anthony Kosner on Content.ly analyzes three different news discovery services in order to illustrate the different types of approaches available today to gather and filter streams for a specific audience.
He takes as examples Fuego, Upworthy and Prismatic, which utilize three very different solutions to aggregating and filtering the news in order to provide a relevant stream to their readers.
Overall, the article tries to illustrate how different can be the approaches utilized to filter and suggest content to a specific audience.
Interesting. Informative. 6/10

An infographic I created for a MOOC at Stanford: Designing New Learning Environments. Made with too little space, too little skills, too little time and too little research. Lots of fun though.

Robin Good: Problem: "...with so many conferences that are out of reach for one reason or another, how does one catch the highlights from the conference that won’t fit into a 140 character tweet?"
Solution: The Smashing Magazine has just published a valuable selection of curated design conference collections of video recordings and presentation clips presenting the best of those events.
"A number of sites have sprung up collating all of this wonderful content. Each with their own take on curating a library of conference videos."
This curated collection of collections comprises 35 online resources that have been designed for this very purpose: helping you discover the best talks, presentations and interviews from unique conferences and events.
Curation at work. 8/10

There's no question that Dennis O'Connor has found much success on Scoop.it. It wasn't all coincidental, though. Dennis shared with us two of his best curation secrets and tricks:
1. Develop multiple sources for your topicsIt's important to carefully think through the keywords that you set for your topic so that Scoop.it can crawl the web and provide you with interesting and relevant content and inspiration. In addition to taking full advantage of this, Dennis also uses other tools like Twitter, StumbleUpon, and Prismatic to find content to share on Scoop.it. Once he finds the content he wants to share with his audience, he uses Scoop.it as his social media hub to add value to that content and share it everywhere.
2. Tag your postsDennis takes a lot of time to tag each of his posts. This allows him, he explained, to assemble publications based upon his tagged topics. When he's using his information on Scoop.it for his E-learning classes, it's easy for him to filter his Scoop.it pages based upon different subjects and easily compile a list of posts and articles on appropriate topics to provide to his students. Something interesting that Dennis does with his tagged articles is to pull them by subject and create "special editions" of his topics on his blog for special classes and events that he is teaching.

"Il ne fait aucun doute que Dennis O'Connor a trouvé beaucoup de succès sur Scoop.it. Ce n'était pas une coïncidence tout, cependant. Dennis a partagé avec nous deux de ses secrets les mieux curation et astuces:
1. Développer des sources multiples pour vos sujetsIl est important de réfléchir attentivement à travers les mots-clés que vous avez définis pour votre sujet afin que Scoop.it pouvez explorer le Web et vous fournir un contenu intéressant et pertinent et d'inspiration. En plus de profiter pleinement de cela, Dennis utilise aussi d'autres outils comme Twitter, StumbleUpon, et prismatique pour trouver le contenu à partager sur Scoop.it. Une fois qu'il trouve le contenu qu'il veut partager avec son public, il utilise Scoop.it que son pôle médias sociaux pour ajouter de la valeur à ce contenu et de le partager partout.
2. Marquez vos messagesDennis prend beaucoup de temps pour étiqueter chacun de ses messages. Cela lui permet, at-il expliqué, d'assembler des publications basées sur ses sujets marqués. Quand il utilise ses informations sur Scoop.it pour ses cours d'e-learning, il est facile pour lui de filtrer ses pages Scoop.it basés sur différents sujets et facilement dresser une liste des messages et des articles sur des sujets appropriés pour fournir à ses étudiants.Quelque chose d'intéressant que Dennis fait avec ses articles taggés est de les tirer par sujet et créer des «éditions spéciales» de ses sujets sur son blog pour les classes spéciales et des événements qu'il enseigne".

The curator benefits from the act of curation. The reader benefits from following the curiosity of the curator into new ideas. Both sides of the equation must exert the effort to pay attention so that focus and though develop. Otherwise we can get stuck clicking through the information channels like so many bored workers punching the tv remote control in a dull haze after a long day.
As the web becomes more and more inundated with blogs, videos, tweets, status updates, news, articles, and countless other forms of content, "information over
I'll stick with Scoop.it, still here is a roundup of systems for curation.
This item details some of the sites and means by which the massive amount of news can be filtered. Yes, Scoop.it is there, but so are lots of other ways and means that yield similar results. Any of a number of these plans are things that I would find useful. Maybe a content curation scheme is needed for curation schemes?
Per gli specialisti di marketing, i migliori tools di content curation.
Si quieres saber cual es la mejor herramienta en tu estrategia de Content Marketing aquí desde luego tienes por donde empezar.
I introduce Scoop.it in my E-Learning for Educators online course. I think it's a great platform. However it does have some healthy competiion. RebelMouse is one such competitor. Well worth a look for those shopping for a strong curation platform.
Scoop.it collates work from online publications using an online magazine format, and this visual impact alone makes it very effective.
The additional appeal of broadcasting from a hub allows me to tap into and share with my ed tech networks, which is why I find myself using it more often during time constraints.
First of all, it’s powerful–it incorporates multiple elements of familiar social media tools. But it’s also very flexible–the mobile app is quite functional for both iPhone and Android, and a toolbar plugin can be installed on browser windows. Scoop.it’s athleticism makes it a time-saver; educators and students will quickly grasp its value in content gathering.
Additionally, using Scoop.it will meet multiple standards (Common Core and NETS-S) across the curriculum. Students use critical thinking skills to collect, evaluate and analyze content; they may identify trends from discourse; they develop writing skills in original expression; and they interact, communicate and publish to a global audience. But perhaps more importantly, students practice digital citizenship and personal responsibility to lifelong learning.

Why use scoopit?
A key component to this process, which is tied directly into active assessment strategies, is synthesizing or making sense of the information gathered. Sense making can be writing a blog post using the links (like this post) or summarizing the key points in a presentation. Gathering and collecting specific content points is the beginning, and creating the theme is where an individual demonstrates their analysis and evaluation of the content included in a post or presentation shared. Kanter wrote, “Content curation is not about collecting links or being an information pack rat, it is more about putting them into a context with organization, annotation, and presentation.”
This article will help you understand how curating relates to both Bloom's taxonomy and the Engagement Pyramid proposed by Charlene Li and Jeremiah Owyang.
For those who must plan to standards, this article will give you great theoretical backing for teaching and using curation in your classroom.
I agree. Education used to be about finding the information. With potential access to everything now, the focus should be on making sense of it and finding connections, drawing correlations and making conclusions - to become thinkers.
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.

Those that follow my work know that I love Scoop.it. This brief slide show makes solid points about how curation can help raise your social networking profile. (I was flattered to see my page feature here as well). ~ Dennis
Dennis's original goal when joining Scoop.it was to create a resource for his audience. He initially began using Scoop.it to "re-purpose years of blog content and … share his extensive reading lists." In doing so, he learned that Scoop.it could actually serve as his own social media dashboard, and was "immediately impressed" with the ability he had on Scoop.it to manage so many media outlets.
With this power, Dennis was able to begin curating content on the major themes of his expertise: writing, information fluency, e-learning, and online teaching. While creating these reading lists and collections of his previously published blog content, though, Dennis realized that his readers weren't the only ones benefitting from his curation. He knew that Scoop.it would be a great tool to organize and share his lists, but what he didn't expect was that there would be more people out there interested in what he was posting!
After using Scoop.it for some time, he has found that he can continue to build significant audiences for his topics. He has used Scoop.it as a tool to publish to three different Facebook pages, a WordPress blog, two Tumblr blogs, LinkedIn, Google+, Pinterest, and Stumbleupon.
By sharing his content to all of these different channels from the same place, Dennis is able to save time and expand his reach. He has become an increasingly influential figure in Information Fluency and E-Learning and continues to learn more about these topics each day as he curates and shares new information for his readers.
YouTube can be a great place to find educational videos to use in your classroom. But YouTube isn't the only place where you can find good educational video content.
