What Makes a Good Content Curator?

What Makes a Good Content Curator? | Educational Technology and Sustainability | Scoop.it

Excerpted from the article:
"Sharing good content shows you understand what’s interesting and valuable to your target markets. It will help you increase your followers and establish your credibility.
A good content curator has to sift through tons of content, quickly and efficiently, finding what is both relevant and good quality.

So what does a good content curator look like?
1) Really Long Arms:
You have the expanded reach to know the smaller players with a unique perspective, the powerhouse publishers, and all of the niche players. This allows for a healthy variety of content, with differing perspectives.

2) Super Fast Scanning Eyes:
An efficient content curator knows how to scan an article for legitimacy, value, and relevance to their target market.

3) A Raised Eyebrow:
Each time you come upon something new, your eyebrow is already up, because you’re there to sniff it out to make sure it’ll pass the test. People will lose interest in what you share and you will hurt your credibility if you share content that isn’t high quality.

4) A Belly Full of Hunger:
Good content curators love what they do and are passionate about traversing the wide expanse of the web to find the best content possible."

What has long arms and raised eyebrows?

 

Charlotte L Weitze's curator insight, March 11, 2013 4:43 AM
Robin Good's insight:

 

Lindsey Weintraub at SocialMediaToday has a short but valuable guide to four key traits a good curator really needs to have.

 

From the ability to search and tap into sources that should not be what everyone else is looking at, to the ability to know in and out its chosen niche of interest and its players, the good content curator has an uncanny talent for scanning, selecting and triple-verifying anything potentially interesting before even considering showcasing in its selections.

 

Rightful. Good for anyone just starting out with curation. 7/10

How Long Does It Take To Build A Native Mobile App? | readwrite mobile

How Long Does It Take To Build A Native Mobile App? | readwrite mobile | Educational Technology and Sustainability | Scoop.it

The last several years have seen an explosion in mobile applications. By the end of 2013, both Android’s Google Play and the Apple iOS App Store will be hosting a million apps - and we have only seen minor signs of slowing growth.

 

Where the heck are all these apps coming from? Thousands upon thousands of developers are working hard to pump out games, social networks, utility and productivity apps, news readers… if you can dream it, someone is building an app for it. 

 

So, how much time and effort is going into feeding this beast? Exactly how long does it take to build a quality native mobile app (not a mobile Web, HTML5 app)? Boston-based Backend-as-a-Service (BaaS) mobile-cloud-platform vendor Kinvey set out to answer just that question.

Mashable is, as always, awesome and you can read their suggestions at the Scoopit! link below.

 

Here are my thoughts on the list: 


Scrivener is now available for PCs. Good! I don't think the video tutorials alone will get you going with Scrivener, though. I had some troubles with formatting and file management. It's not as easy as anyone would like, but it's better than many alternatives. Expect to sift through the manual, too, not just the videos. Overall, Scrivener is wonderful, but the videos leave out the simplest steps, assuming they are too simple. Not for me, they weren't. I found formatting properly often took (takes?) hours and a lot of experimentation. I'll let you know. I'm formatting more tomorrow.

 

Evernote: I've got it. I'm still not sure how I should be using it. I'll go to YouTube and check out a tutorial there. I'm sure for Evernote's capabilities, that should be sufficient. It's another of those cases where the tech is there, but it is not used to its fullest advantage.

 

99Designs: Be careful. I've seen some decent covers through there, but  results were uneven. I prefer to work with one great designer (Kit Foster of KitFosterDesign.com). I like a steady hand on that graphic design wheel.

 

E-junkie: Brilliant. Many more of us will begin to sell more of our work through our own websites as KDP Select wanes further. I'm looking forward to taking that leap in the near future.

 

750words. Not a bad idea. You can also become accountable to the world by adding progress bars to your website. Wordpress has plugins and the Chrome Store has free alternatives, too.

 

Ebooks about Creating Ebooks: The hottest ebook in this category just now is APE by Guy Kawasaki. (I also recommend Crack the Indie Author Code and Write Your Book: Aspire to Inspire for beginning your writing and publishing  process, but I wrote those, so I would say that, wouldn't I?)

 

Mailchimp: Awesomeness. I use it at AllThatChazz.com and it's pretty easy to manage and free up to a point. You should subscribe for my newsletters and insider announcements. (But I would say that, too, wouldn't I?)

 

ClicktoTweet: I haven't used this one yet. It sounds good in theory. The content jammed in between those links better be awesome enough for all that retweeting, huh? Well...we're all amazing here, so no problem.

"O ambiente digital está alterando nosso cérebro de forma inédita", diz neurologista britânica

"O ambiente digital está alterando nosso cérebro de forma inédita", diz neurologista britânica | Educational Technology and Sustainability | Scoop.it

Susan Greenfield, especialista no impacto da tecnologia no cérebro, diz que estamos cada dia mais dependentes de redes sociais e videogames e prevê um futuro sombrio para os "nativos digitais", geração que passará a vida inteirta online.

Para a neurocientista britânica Susan Greenfield, o admirável mundo novo da internet e das redes sociais não é tão admirável assim. Videogames e redes sociais estão, na visão dela, criando uma nova geração – a de "nativos digitais" – que vai passar a maior parte de sua vida online. E isso não é bom, segundo ela. "As crianças que estão crescendo agora nesse ambiente do ciberespaço, não vão aprender como olhar alguém nos olhos, não vão aprender a interpretar tons de voz ou a linguagem corporal", disse em entrevista ao site de VEJA, concedida em sua passagem pelo Brasil para falar na Conferência Fronteiras do Pensamento, em São Paulo e Porto Alegre.

Susan, de 52 anos, autora de livros como The Private Life of the Brain (A Vida Privada do Cérebro, sem edição no Brasil), afirma que há um grande risco de as pessoas passarem a viver suas vidas exclusivamente em ambientes virtuais. "Um estudo americano, de 2010, mostrou que mais da metade dos adolescentes entre 13 e 17 anos gastava mais de 30 horas por semana na internet. São quatro ou cinco horas por dia não andando na praia, não dando um abraço em alguém, não sentindo o sol no rosto, não subindo em uma árvore, não fazendo todas as coisas que as crianças costumavam fazer."

Outra comparação feita pela neurocientista, que também é professora de Farmacologia na Universidade de Oxford, é entre as redes sociais e a indústria do cigarro. De acordo com ela, assim como as produtoras de tabaco negavam o poder viciante do cigarro, o mesmo ocorre hoje com as companhias que lucram com o uso das redes sociais e videogames. "É preciso admitir que existe um problema", diz ela, citando estudos que relacionam a utilização intensiva de redes sociais com a liberação de substâncias estimulantes no cérebro.

Apesar de enxergar com pessimismo um mundo em que estejamos conectados a maior parte do tempo, Susan diz que não adianta proibir crianças e adolescentes de usar videogames e redes sociais. "É preciso oferecer um mundo tridimensional mais interessante para eles."

A  internet afeta o cérebro?

Todos estão interessados em saber como as tecnologias digitais, especialmente a internet, afetam o cérebro. A primeira coisa a saber é que viver afeta o cérebro. O cérebro muda a todo instante de nossas vidas. Tudo que é feito durante o dia vai afetar o cérebro. A razão disso é que o cérebro humano se desenvolveu para se adaptar ao ambiente, não importando qual fosse esse ambiente. É interessante notar que agora o ambiente é muito diferente, de maneira sem precedentes.

Continua ....
