Curation: Creatively Filtering Content

Curation: Creatively Filtering Content | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Below are examples of all the different ways educators used to curate or share information from the Edutech National Congress & Expo.  Comparing the tools used to curate at EduTech with the curation survey results highlights choices are personal and based on the outcome you’re trying to achieve.

How Scoop.it, Google Plus & Twitter can turn chaos into order

How Scoop.it, Google Plus & Twitter can turn chaos into order | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

If you do anything professionally related to online technology, you understand the immense amount of data you need to sort through each day. There are the daily content roundups, blogs to read, Facebook posts and to check, tweets to scroll through and news sites. That doesn’t include whatever else arrives in your in-box. I literally cannot keep up with all that I want to know about social media technology and its use for engagement, fundraising and advocacy.

It’s really too much to know. That’s when I began trusting the curators.

 

Trusting the curators was a strategy I employed to begin to figure out what to read, what I needed to read, and what others whom I trusted thought was important to read. We cannot read it all. We cannot begin to imagine trying to read it all. We must trust to the curators.

Trusting others to curate content has become my primary means for gathering relevant information about social media and particularly nonprofit technology.

Curation is all about trust.  I too cut to the cause by keeping in the know via great curators.

50 Great Content Curators - Ana Cristina Pratas via @CrowdFunde | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Ana Cristina Pratas
My friend @Ana Cristina Pratas is our 2nd "Great Content Curator" to be profiled on CrowdFunde. Ana Cristina's joyful curation always lifts my spirits while teaching ideas and connections hard to imagine without her.

Ana Cristina is leading the charge of a new tribe of educators who understand the "deep learning" possible from content curation (see This Is Your Brian On Content Curation http://sco.lt/6NqXKr ). Ana was the 2nd curator to crest 1M views on Scoop.it, but numbers don't tell the whole story.

Every interaction I have with Ana Cristina I learn something, feel inspired and want to CREATE SOMETHING (lol). She is an inspiring leader, a great educator and a content curation treasure.

===> Good content curation doesn't consist of simply regurgitating content that others have published. Your brand story-telling must include a human element in the form of personalizing the information and making it compelling to your social media followers. <===


Successful programs provide context and communicate it in a transparent fashion, enabling you to amplify your brand message and create passionate subscribers.

5 Pinterest-like education sites worth trying out

5 Pinterest-like education sites worth trying out | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
All of these sites focus on learning and curation, but could one of them really be the "Pinterest of education"?

 

As one of the fastest-growing social networks, Pinterest's popularity can be attributed to its ease of use and vibrant Pinboards. Recently, a number of similar social curation sites developed specifically for students and teachers have popped up, emulating Pinterest in key ways while focusing on learning. In some cases, they have even made improvements.

 

Here are five such sites that could be contenders for the title "Pinterest of Education"

Why Scoop.it Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | TeachThought.com

Why Scoop.it Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | TeachThought.com | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Scoop.it collates work from online publications using an online magazine format, and this visual impact alone makes it very effective.

 

The additional appeal of broadcasting from a hub allows me to tap into and share with my ed tech networks, which is why I find myself using it more often during time constraints.

 

First of all, it’s powerful–it incorporates multiple elements of familiar social media tools. But it’s also very flexible–the mobile app is quite functional for both iPhone and Android, and a toolbar plugin can be installed on browser windows. Scoop.it’s athleticism makes it a time-saver; educators and students will quickly grasp its value in content gathering.

 

Additionally, using Scoop.it will meet multiple standards (Common Core and NETS-S) across the curriculum. Students use critical thinking skills to collect, evaluate and analyze content; they may identify trends from discourse; they develop writing skills in original expression; and they interact, communicate and publish to a global audience. But perhaps more importantly, students practice digital citizenship and personal responsibility to lifelong learning.

Why use scoopit?

Peter Mellow's comment, March 5, 2013 6:02 PM
Tim, we compared a number of curation tools using masternewmedia's "The 15 Basic Traits of a News / Content Curation System" as a guide and Scoopit ticked most of the boxes. My only worry about it is that currently there not an export or backup facility, hopefully something that they are working on. For me, it is the ease of use, if the UI is good then that makes life a lot easier! :-)

Is Content Curation in Your Skill Set? It Should Be | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Curation is a term that is rapidly growing in popularity and is directly impacting the world of workplace learning and performance. In a world where the amount of information available to workers doubles every 18 to 24 months, it is impossible to keep up with the seemingly endless supply of it.

1,000,000 people and businesses are now using Scoop.it! - Curation | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Interest-based content curation was only a vision 2 years ago when we launched: in a post Web 2.0 world, we felt that more and more we are the content we publish. Whether we liked it or not, we would all need to become media - a problem for busy professionals who don’t have time or inspiration for that and whose primary expertise is often not to be a content publisher.

Since then, publishing-by-curation rapidly turned into an important trend as 1,000,000 freelance professionals, community managers, content marketers, educators, knowledge managers, thought leaders, and more are now using Scoop.it to demonstrate and share their professional expertise, develop visibility for their small or mid-sized businesses or to make the company they work for smarter.

"Explain, always clearly why something you are curating/communicating is relevant. Contextualize."

This is just one of the five great points from Sam Burroughs that we should consider when communicating relevant information to people on our list.

There are four other great tips equally as important, that we should use when communicating information to others.

In today's fast-paced world the information that we are trying to communicate to others should be user centered.
