Una excelente presentación sobre Curación de Contenidos

ignis ideas+innovación transmedia's curator insight, August 7, 2015 9:35 AM

These are the slides of a talk I gave to the Social Media for Non-Profits conference on June 11 in Mountain View. 

 

Like many large and small businesses, non-profits are often looking at social media in general and content in particular as a huge opportunity to embrace but also one that is hard to master. Limited resources, lack of inspiration, lack of credibility are often mentioned as blocking factors so that overall a lot of people are left with fear of missing out. 

 

My talk was thus on how to relieve that stress by using content curation - which in itself is not easy but can become much easier with the appropriate tools or combination of tools. 

 

The presentation covers the key benefits of a good content strategy, how content curation can help as well as best practices, tools and a few case studies as well.

The age of curation: From abundance to discovery

As power shifts to consumers—who can program their own content using powerful technology and simple interfaces—curation moves out of the hands of professionals and into communities, platforms and algorithms.

Excellent piece filled with stats and studies illustrating how content creation, distribution and curation are shifting...more consumer driven, from multiple platforms and players, and more automation. Companies will be challenged to stay on top of these trends, and continue creating high quality, consumer focused content that "surprises" its readers (vs churning out predictable content). Creativity and innovation will be even more critical as we move ahead...

Los resultados de la encuesta destacan tres tendencias clave en 2013: 1. El aumento del consumo individual y social impulsado por smartphones y tablets.2. El fin de la escasez de contenidos, la distribución digital logra la ubicuidad.3. Un alejamiento de la propiedad habilitada por redes "always-on".

The ICT opportunity for a disability-inclusive development framework

“The ICT Opportunity for a Disability-Inclusive Development Framework” contributes to a better understanding of the extent to which ICTs enable and accelerate the social and economic inclusion of persons with disabilities. It lists challenges that are still to be addressed while outlining concrete actions to be undertaken by each group of stakeholders and a set of indicators to help measure progress towards the achievement of a disability-inclusive development agenda.

How can students use their iPad to answer these questions? I have founf allowing them to give feedback on assessment performance in Coneqt has been very valuable, as well as using collaborative brainstorm/idea tools like TodaysMeet and Padlet. These questions are part of Harvard's Visible Thinking Framework.

"Visible Thinking has a double goal: on the one hand, to cultivate students' thinking skills and dispositions, and, on the other, to deepen content learning."

Cindy Riley Klages's curator insight, April 9, 2014 6:38 AM

These routines have classroom merit, too, as we're trying to get students to think.

This has so much relevance when teaching students questioning and critical thinking skills. Great tool for developing Inquiry based learning strategies. Also, I love an infographic!

Swedish School Redesigned for Digital Pupils

Swedish School Redesigned for Digital Pupils | Learning spaces | Scoop.it

The design of the school was based on what actually happens when we learn, a difference from traditionally built school buildings. It stimulated the children’s curiosity and creativity; it offered reflection and cooperation in the school, in mobile teams and on the web. The students were equipped with the latest digital technology in a rapidly changing world.

An interesting approach to early education, with a focus on creativity and innovation. Too early to tell, but initial results (in maths) seem to indicate positive results -- that is, above the Swedish national average. The title is a bit misleading, as pupils are not "digital"; however, the actual learning activities are supported by technology.

iPad deployment includes all of the steps between buying an iPad and beginning to use the device. For an individual’s personal iPad, this is often a very fast and easy process lasting no longer than five minutes: You just open the box, turn it on, download the apps you want on your device, and go. But for a school, or district, with potentially hundreds of iPads–each one requiring a specialized list of apps that need to be purchased before protecting the devices with a case and sending them out to classrooms. As an administrator or teacher, there are a few things you will need to know before you deploy your iPads
