Robin Good's curator insight, November 29, 2013 3:28 PM



"Zeeik It" is a new bookmarklet from Zeeik, a video curation app, that allows you to easily collect and save into discrete collections all of the YouTube videos found on Twitter or on most any web page.

Once collected you can pick the ones you want and easily trim them before saving them into a curated video collection.


Zeeik video collections are a good way to create valuable content that can be embedded in any article or guide and that can be served according to multiple categories and criteria as you can see from this specific example: http://zeeik.com/zeeik/-21828800  

(click "Cool Colors" or "Warm Colors").


You can find the new Zeeik It bookmarklet on the top right of the Zeeik home page here: http://zeeik.com/ 


Free to use.

6 Facts About Content Curation and SEO You May Not Know | Hot Trends in Social Media | Scoop.it
If you struggle with providing a steady stream of fresh, relevant content for your website, you’re not alone. Perhaps one of the best ways to overcome this challenge, while also increasing the value you provide to your audience, is through the process of editorialized content curation.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, January 13, 5:58 AM

People who use Google are given the impression that they are interacting with the data out there, but they are actually interacting with Google and its view of the world.

 

"They are prediction engines that constantly refine a theory about who you are and what you are going to do or want next. Together, they create an universe of data for each one of us."

"In a 2010 paper published in the Scientific American journal, Tim Berners-Lee warned about companies developing ever more “closed” products and “data islands”.

"Morville, in his book Search Patterns, says that the first and second results receive 80% of attention. The vertical approach suggests to the user the idea of a single result that fully answers the question, enclosing possibilities and preventing alternative realization."


Or in other words, is our acceptance of what we see in search results eroding our ability (or willingness) to consider alternatives and employ critical thinking?

Lucy Beaton's curator insight, January 16, 8:21 PM

This is alarming.  We, as Teacher Librarians, need to be aware of the ramifications of this.
