Is Content Curation in Your Skill Set? It Should Be. by David Kelly : Learning Solutions Magazine

Is Content Curation in Your Skill Set? It Should Be. by David  Kelly : Learning Solutions Magazine | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

“Curation is an important skill to develop, especially in an environment in which more and more organizations shift towards self-directed learning for their workers. Now is the time for learning and performance professionals to develop this new skill set.”

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

This article explains curation and the importance of learning curation skills.  This backs up our recent decision to include curation skills in our introductory class E-Learning for Educators .

Exploring Curation as a core competency in digital and media literacy education | Mihailidis | Journal of Interactive Media in Education

Exploring Curation as a core competency in digital and media literacy education | Mihailidis | Journal of Interactive Media in Education | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Abstract: In today's hypermedia landscape, youth and young adults are increasingly using social media platforms, online aggregators and mobile applications for daily information use. Communication educators, armed with a host of free, easy-to-use online tools, have the ability to create dynamic approaches to teaching and learning about information and communication flow online. In this paper we explore the concept of curation as a student- and creation-driven pedagogical tool to enhance digital and media literacy education. We present a theoretical justification for curation and present six key ways that curation can be used to teach about critical thinking, analysis and expression online. We utilize a case study of the digital curation platform Storify to explore how curation works in the classroom, and present a framework that integrates curation pedagogy into core media literacy education learning outcomes.

Keywords: Media Literacy, Curation, Civic Engagement, Digital Learning

I haven't read this article but I'm seriously interested in the question implied in the title.....i.e. how to 'mark up' information and get them on the web.  In many cases, I think that's adequate for most people's purpose.

 

I have yet to find a tool that I found really comfortable for doing that.  Maybe this is it.

Robin Good's curator insight, May 6, 2013 1:26 PM



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.


  • Fuego works by curating - manually - a selected group of thought leaders in the field of journalism. Most everything they post becomes part of Fuego.

  • Upworthy is powered by human curators who decide what makes the news and what doesn't.

  • Prismatic is strong on extracting relevant stories based on specific keywords and on your preferences and interaction with the service itself.


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

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.

I supposed twitter can be used or any tool can be used for anything,but some tools are made with certain intended affordance by the creator that would make the tool less effective for certain functions. curation in a way is capturing things void of time (i probably drawing too much from museum), while twitter is fast pace timeline of interactive (or one way) discourse.... they seems to be inherently different.

i'm just automatically sceptical when 'one tool can be use for all' theme appear. but it is an interesting suggestion.

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.

RebelMouse was born to build a social media hub, but it does have strong aggregation, filtering and curation capabilities.

Why Scoop.it Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | TeachThought.com | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

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.

Tim, we compared a number of curation tools using masternewmedia's "The 15 Basic Traits of a News / Content Curation System" as a guide and Scoopit ticked most of the boxes. My only worry about it is that currently there not an export or backup facility, hopefully something that they are working on. For me, it is the ease of use, if the UI is good then that makes life a lot easier! :-)
