Curation as a tool for teaching and learning

According to Boyd (2010) curators help people to focus their attention on the most relevant and  important information streams. Valenza (2011) tells us to take advantage of the work of others passionate about a topic and use their curated work as a search tool.Fiorelli (2011) describes content curators as “critical knowledge brokers”.


Librarians, journalists, and teachers have always curated: they evaluate, select, collect, present, and promote material for their users, readers and students; but these days curation is becoming an important activity for a broad range of people and for a variety of reasons and purposes.

Blogging as a Curation Platform

Blogging as a Curation Platform | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it
Don’t andomly sharing a large amount of links in a rapid fire sequence or in a looong bulleted list of links is collecting, not curating. Most of the time, it is seems that “link collectors”  just skim over the titles and at most a few sentences of the resources without reading, nor digging deeper into the content. It is by sharing quality and relevant content and by adding value to make me see connections, new background information or a different perspective I had not considered, that curators will gain my trust.

Goal 10: Spread Your Knowledge (15+ Tools to Bookmark, Aggregate, Curate) : Teacher Reboot Camp

Goal 10: Spread Your Knowledge (15+ Tools to Bookmark, Aggregate, Curate) : Teacher Reboot Camp | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Teach your students to use online bookmarking, curation, and aggregation tools to gather and organize their knowledge. Develop a community for sharing resources in your teaching environment. You can do this by having a newsletter, a collective blog, a wiki, Google site, Facebook group or other landing place for the information you gather. You can even create a hashtag on Twitter where you encourage your colleagues and/or students to use to share their knowledge. Establishing a community for learning helps support and encourage continuous learning.

Curation is such a necessity these days. The overwhelming wave of information we are exposed to is drowning us in facts and opinion. Not only do we need to be curating the information that we are consuming but we need to be insisting that our students have the skills and necessary tools in which to curate their own world. I have listed a number of capable curation apps that can help to do just that.

How Long Before You Will Scoop.it Instead of Google It?

How Long Before You Will Scoop.it Instead of Google It? | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

"Services like Scoop.it depend on a community of millions of hardworking experts who wonder what to do with the wealth of knowledge and wisdom they have accumulated in life and are happy to share it."

 

Written by blogger Shred Pillai on the Huffington Post, this vibrant praise of Social Curation in general and Scoop.it in particular, points out the changes we're seeing in the way we look for information. From basic search, we now look more and more for meaning and context from human experts.

 

Beyond information, we want knowledge.

 

And this is what Curation is all about.

 

As he concludes: "At the end of the day, Scoop.it, which is free, is the right answer for information seekers and providers as well as the experts who like to show off their expertise."
