Content is king: easy & simple ways to curate relevant content

Content is King: we've heard this sentence so much that for a lot of us it can become a factor of stress and frustration. Are you suffering content FOMO? Relax: content curation is here to the rescue. And here's how to make it practical and easy through hands-on best practices and tips as well as free or freemium tools to stop worrying about not doing enough with content.

Una excelente presentación sobre Curación de Contenidos

ignis ideas+innovación transmedia's curator insight, August 7, 2015 9:35 AM

These are the slides of a talk I gave to the Social Media for Non-Profits conference on June 11 in Mountain View. 

 

Like many large and small businesses, non-profits are often looking at social media in general and content in particular as a huge opportunity to embrace but also one that is hard to master. Limited resources, lack of inspiration, lack of credibility are often mentioned as blocking factors so that overall a lot of people are left with fear of missing out. 

 

My talk was thus on how to relieve that stress by using content curation - which in itself is not easy but can become much easier with the appropriate tools or combination of tools. 

 

The presentation covers the key benefits of a good content strategy, how content curation can help as well as best practices, tools and a few case studies as well.

One of the biggest productivity tools has gotten a solid redesign. In case you didn’t notice, Google Drive got trimmed down and made into a lean, mean, time-saving machine.

How Minecraft and Duct Tape Wallets Prepare Our Kids for Jobs That Don’t Exist Yet (EdSurge News)

How Minecraft and Duct Tape Wallets Prepare Our Kids for Jobs That Don’t Exist Yet (EdSurge News) | EdTech | Scoop.it
Whether it’s Minecraft or duct tape wallets, the childhood passions that seem like fads, if not totally unproductive, can alternatively be seen as mediums for experiencing the virtuous cycle of curiosity: discovering, trying, failing and growing. At DIY, we’ve created a way for kids to explore hundreds of skills and to understand the ways in which they can be creative through them. Often, the skills are unconventional, and almost always the results are surprising. I don’t think it’s important that kids use the skills they learn on DIY for the rest of their lives. What’s important is that kids develop the muscle to be fearless learners so that they are never stuck with the skills they have. Only this will prepare them for a world where change is accelerating and depending on a single skill to provide a lifetime career is becoming impossible.
