Curation tools for researchers - Handbook of social media for researchers and supervisors

Curation tools for researchers - Handbook of social media for researchers and supervisors | Gills Deleuze | Scoop.it

Here’s some more evidence that curation is crucial for researchers, whether you choose to be a curator or you choose to follow curators.
According to Minocha and Petre (2012) from The Open University, UK (1), curation is useful for researchers and for developing research skills, as it involves:
- information management;
- curating content on the research topic of interest which appears on a variety of different media;
- chances of attracting interesting people to a researcher’s website;
- development of your "infotention", mindfulness, and concentration;
- self-empowerment, helping you to be seen and trusted as a “topic expert”.

 

Become a content curator in three steps:
1- Do it on a specific topic so that you are seen as a trusted source or expert on that topic;
2- Share only the best stuff;
3- Do it continuously so that you are continuously providing up-to-date content.

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, March 24, 2013 10:54 AM

This is so worth listening to....When you take a coffee break, link on this and listen to what this wise, observant and reflective man has to say. He talks of many critical ideasa not just the occupy movement. 

Toni Mantis's curator insight, November 6, 2013 4:35 AM

Por @democracynow: "Chomsky dice que el movimiento Occupy ha ayudado a reconstruir la solidaridad de clase y las comunidades de apoyo mutuo a un nivel no visto desde los tiempos de la Gran Depresión. 

 

"El movimiento Occupy espontáneamente ha creado algo que en realidad no existía en el país: las comunidades de apoyo mutuo, la cooperación, los espacios abiertos para el debate ... personas que hacen cosas y ayudan a los demás", dice Chomsky. 

"Eso era una gran carencia. Existe una propaganda masiva, desde hace un siglo, que dice que no hay que preocuparse por nadie más, sólo hay que cuidar de uno mismo .... Reconstruir la solidaridad de clase, aunque sea en pequeñas ámbitos de la sociedad, puede ser muy importante, para cambiar la concepción de cómo debe funcionar una sociedad ".

 

Chomsky también da su valoración del presidente Obama, con quien. dice, se han atacado las libertades civiles de una manera que ha "ido más allá de [George W.] Bush."

 

Noam Chomsky es escritor y profesor emérito de lingüística y filosofía en el MIT, donde enseñó durante más de medio siglo. Es autor de decenas de libros, el último, "Occupy"."
