Social Content Curation: An Introductory Guide for Teachers and Students

Social Content Curation: An Introductory Guide for Teachers and Students | Harvard Trends | Scoop.it

Robin Good: "7 Things You Should Know About Social Content Curation" is a technology brief from Educause which aims to introduce, explain and illustrate the emerging social curation trend and why it is relevant to teaching and learning.

 

From the official abstract: "An emerging class of online tools, including Pinterest, Scoop.it, EduClipper, and others, allows users to quickly and easily gather, organize, and share collections of online resources, particularly visual content.


These applications make it easy to collect and post disparate bits of content, providing visual groupings at a glance that can reveal important patterns.


In academic settings, they can facilitate more visual thinking and discussion among students while providing a means to share collections of online content."



Informative. Good introductory text. 7/10

Finding the Link Between Transformational Command & Positive Deviants « Intercultural Communicators | Harvard Trends | Scoop.it

Many leadership models appear to require a strenuous, but exceptional balance of diverse skills, expertise and experience that relatively few people have. Luckily, there is a method to create the effect of transformational leadership without depending on the outstanding skills and connection with a transformational leader.

The Cure For Content-Creation Madness

The Cure For Content-Creation Madness | Harvard Trends | Scoop.it

I just recovered from a HootSuite infection. I thought that by posting new content each day, hordes of new B2B corporate decision makers would find me. I watched and waited for my Klout score to skyrocket.

 

While the plethora of content distribution once excited me, I now realize that my content was landing in the data dumpster. I lacked a critical ingredient: a content marketing strategy. Thankfully, I am regaining my footing on the road to content creation recovery.

Content Marketing The New Branding

Content Marketing The New Branding | Harvard Trends | Scoop.it
What we call "brands" are just promises of an experience ... and content will help you shape that promise.

Branding another name for creating a perception


The very essence of brands don’t lie within your brand colors or site design, even though important.

The essence of a brand lies within its meaning.

And words have meaning. Words matter.


How does the 'brand' inspire people to generate content? To increase brand audience?

Hopefully inspiring consumers with brand experiences and publishing great content.

Content is currency — something we trade for audience’s attention

That currency becomes more valuable every time it’s shared by someone other than the brand.

Hence it is imperative to create content worth sharing. How it is shared is up to the consumers.

 

Have a look at this Infographic, Content Marketing Media Matrix For Small Businesses,

created by PRWeb, you’ll see an array of content marketing options — each with its own balance of difficulty and value.

Female muscle, the Changing Politics & Economy of Gender, Women in Leadership

Female muscle, the Changing Politics & Economy of Gender, Women in Leadership | Harvard Trends | Scoop.it

"Insights into Leadership & the Politics of Gender via the book, The End of Men: And the Rise of Women by Hanna Rosin to be published in Britain in October"

 

At the local Women's Exchange of Washtenaw Forum 2012, one of our Open Space group discussions was on the Politics of Gender.  This intriguing book brings up good points about the shifts & changes in our disruptive, social media charged, globally connected world.    


The photo set, including several public photos, is here:  Women, Empowerment at WXW Open Space Exchange Forum2012   ~  Deb

 

__________________________

“All the things we need to be good at to thrive in the world…are things that my female friends and competitors are better at than me.”

__________________________

 

Excerpted - from the Economist, Sept. 2012:

 

Women dominate university attendance around the world.

   

In South Korea more women than men pass the foreign-service exam, which has sparked the foreign ministry to implement a minimum quota for men.      In Brazil nearly a third of women earn more than their husbands, a phenomenon that has caused men to form church support-groups calling themselves “Men of Tears”.     Ms Rosin, an editor at Atlantic, whose book grew out of an article she wrote for the magazine in 2010, highlights how women today are excelling, while men founder.
As part of her research, she travelled to many corners of America, including Auburn-Opelika, Alabama, where women’s median income is 40% higher than men’s.  

The financial crisis has been especially unkind to men: three-quarters of the 7.5m American jobs lost in the recession belonged to men and were in traditionally masculine industries, such as construction, manufacturing and finance.

   

“Probably no one has had their wife move up the ladder as far as I’ve moved down,” says one man.     Another, who is annoyed that his girlfriend earns more than he does, complains, “All the things we need to be good at to thrive in the world…are things that my female friends and competitors are better at than me.”

 

__________________________

  

The new service-based economy rewards communication and adaptation, qualities that women are more likely to have.

Ms Rosin highlights the deterioration of the male-in-the-workplace condition.

   

The new service-based economy rewards communication and adaptation, qualities that women are more likely to have.      Only about 3% of men have taken over raising children full-time while their wives support their families.      Instead, many men, especially young ones, have retreated into a world of video games, drinking and prolonged adolescence—a phenomenon identified in “Guyland”, a 2008 book by an American sociologist, Michael Kimmel.

How Playing World Of Warcraft Can Help Your Job Prospects

How Playing World Of Warcraft Can Help Your Job Prospects | Harvard Trends | Scoop.it

Workers who spend time on online role-playing games have the edge in the real world of business, according to new research.

A study by Newcastle University Business School and the University of Crete suggests that games such as World of Warcraft, Lineage II and The Lord of the Rings Online could be used to help develop staff training techniques.

Researchers found that massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) can improve leadership skills and make staff into faster learners.

They followed a sample of employees for one month and found that many of the combat-related activities needed to gain points and solve quests have similarities with common work tasks.

These include collaboration, meeting targets, team work, strategic planning, allocating resources and recruiting new players to form groups.

The better the subjects performed in the games, the more these skills spilled over into their work lives.

The Rise of eReading: Are Books Going to Become an Endangered Species? [Infographic] | Harvard Trends | Scoop.it

Nooks, Kindles, iPads…oh my! Whatever happened to paperback and hardbacks?! According to one source, people who own e-readers are reading more than they might otherwise, as reflected in rising e-book sales. As a result, e-reader sales continue to increase. Could e-books eventually make good old fashioned books obsolete? Probably not. One reason? For now, only 20% of e-reader owners say that the e-content they want is always available. But the number of people using e-readers is growing. Learn more about the habits of those who feel the need to e-read.

En un entorno así, la búsqueda de informaciones concretas se hace dificultosa y la posterior clasificación de la información por su corrección, calidad, etc. conlleva mucho trabajo.

Why Focusing on Weakness Doesn't Create Exceptional Leadership

Why Focusing on Weakness Doesn't Create Exceptional Leadership | Harvard Trends | Scoop.it
There is psychological problem that some people experience called body dysmorphic disorder, sometimes referred to as imagined ugliness. People with this disorder exaggerate a small flaw in their appearance and perceive themselves to be completely ugly or grotesque. They cannot stop thinking about this minor or imagined flaw.

In many ways, believing that a small weakness will crater a person’s overall effectiveness is a similar serious misperception.
