Curation is sometimes confusing. Everyone has a different definition and it's used in many different ways as part of content and marketing strategies.


I asked 10 of my favorite curation experts for their best tips, tools, their favorite curator and suggestions on innovative uses of curation. Each is a curator on Scoop.it, my favorite curation tool and channel. New and experienced curators are going to learn from their advice.

Curation, digital literacies and information management

Curation, digital literacies and information management | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it

As predicted by great curators, like Robin Good (1), curation is being acknowledged as a crucial skill in Education.

 

Creating and sharing content at this point of the evolution of the Web are insufficient. People need to navigate successfully: picking the best content, organizing it, and managing knowledge are possible through a curation process, which implies a step further.

Scoop This: A Comprehensive Guide to Scoop.it for Content Curation

Scoop This: A Comprehensive Guide to Scoop.it for Content Curation | Edtech PK-12 | Scoop.it

Content curation is much like museum curation. The objects in a museum have value, for whatever reason – historical and artistic beauty are just two.
