Time for next-generation interest-based content curation? RIP Google Reader

Time for next-generation interest-based content curation? RIP Google Reader | learning stuff | Scoop.it

Google just revealed plans to shut down eight of its services as part of what it’s calling an ongoing spring cleaning effort. Some of them are pretty arcane, but among TechCrunch writers, anyway, we’re pretty bummed to see that Google Reader will be shut down on July 1.

Are Curators the Gatekeepers of Knowledge Transmission? Ann Blair on The History of Information

Are Curators the Gatekeepers of Knowledge Transmission? Ann Blair on The History of Information | learning stuff | Scoop.it

The history professor and author of Too Much to Know tells us what researchers have been discovering about how earlier human societies collected, organised and used information...

 

Amazing read and historical perspective about transmission. Knowledge and information are actually very different concept :

 

"This book doesn’t actually focus on the term information but it talks about the institutions that made knowledge possible. Its first volume runs “From Gutenberg to Diderot" – in other words, mid-15th to mid-18th century.

 

A second volume stretches “From the Encyclopédie to Wikipedia”, from the mid-18th century to the 21st century.

 

Peter Burke is a great cultural historian who has worked on many different aspects of the transmission of knowledge – including, for example, how historians worked, or how ideas about good behaviour at court were transmitted.

 

In this synthetic pair of books he explores the question: What were the institutions that were collecting, classifying, sorting and disseminating information?"

 

In our world now where information is everywhere, how you make sure that knowledge is still accessible?

 

Curation is now not only a great means to express yourself but also an obvious path to become a gatekeeper and a qualitative filter.

 

This article gives an awesome perspective on an universal and eternal inspiring mission : transmission.

Hi students (and visitors). If you are having trouble with your profile photo changing every time that you post a new scoop, you can fix it by following these directions that a representative from Scoop.it sent me:
Indeed there's a setting to avoid that. Tell your students that on their Curate page, click on Manage>Customizations>untick "Last Post Image" box and click on Save.

Dynamic Curation: What Brands Can Learn From An Emmy Award Winner

Dynamic Curation: What Brands Can Learn From An Emmy Award Winner | learning stuff | Scoop.it

This piece was published by Andy Jankowski for Enterprise Strategies.

The author has skillfully woven together a piece along with some videos using the strategy PBS Documentary Emmy award winner, Ken Burns.

 

"Corporate communicators are the Ken Burns of their organization’s content, helping move the story along through context and rhythm."

 

Here are 4 great tips with some wonderful takeaways:

 

Storyboard first

 

**Before you go digging for information, think about the message you want to convey

 

**What is the point of your communication? Who is your audience?

 

**Create a storyboard around this message.

 

Filter Intelligently

 

**Could I make this information richer or better by using information outside of my organization?”

 

**“Do infographics and video exist that would help my people learn this concept better?”

 

Don't Become Part of the Problem

 

**Identify good stuff

 

**Put it in the right collection

 

**Document it

 

Know When to Create and When to Curate

 

**Creation and curation should coexist. Curation is not in competition with creation.

 

**Instead, it is a form of creation.

 

**The creation process of a corporate communicator or internal journalist creating content is still happening

Has Content Curation Become The New Creativity For The Masses ... | Education and Digital Curation | learning stuff | Scoop.it

It'n not the same thing at all - curators are needed exactly because they help their readers (and themselves) see the larger picture, gain a perspective and understand the context and meaning of the information they publish. Curation can be creative when it presents an original viewpoint and new connections between info bits, and then creators can use these create richer content.

A Curated Introduction To Curation by Andy Dickinson

Robin Good: Here's another good example of curation at work. Andy Dickinson, has used Storify to create a "curated reference" of his lecture about curation for his first year undergraduate students. 

 

The "storified" reference contains links to tools, video clips, and many contributions which allow any learner interested in this topic, to follow a selected path from which it is possible to wander off and explore in many interesting directions.

 

Useful. Informative. Inspirational. 8/10

tami neuthal 's insight:

"The typical online course is a structured content repository; the instructor has thought about which resources and the student is instructed to move through them in the crudest form possible, read this, do that, and that is the extent of the orchestration.....

We want to see the learning design patterns change, we want to see phy6sical participation in the profession, that is, engagement with the content and the practice, in the rich spaces that we have, and let the content engagement, which can be well-designed online, be the place where content is delivered.

Mobile Curation is now Easier than Ever with Scoop.it for Android: adds Scoop.it to your browser’s native sharing menu

Mobile Curation is now Easier than Ever with Scoop.it for Android: adds Scoop.it to your browser’s native sharing menu | learning stuff | Scoop.it
Most aspects of curation are already compatible with today’s smartphones; we can read content, edit and include short-form commentary, and of course, share to various social networks with a few swipes of the finger. With this in mind, we listened to your feedback and combined all of these elements into the very first mobile curation app, Scoop.it for iPhone, which gives users a simple, efficient, and visually appealing way to curate on the go.

...

http://blog.scoop.it/en/2011/12/16/why-curation-is-the-natural-form-of-mobile-publishing/

 

...

Today, we are very glad to announce our new Android app, which will bring mobile curation on the Scoop.it platform to all Android users.

...

Much like the iPhone app, the Android app will allow you to leverage the suggestions you’ve configured for your topic as well as suggestions from other users. The publishing window is almost identical to that of the website and, of course, you will have all of your sharing options.

...

But, what’s the best thing about the Scoop.it mobile app for Android? Well, we’ve taken simplicity a step further as the App adds Scoop.it to your browser’s native sharing menu. Now, to curate content you discovered while browsing, you no longer need to copy and paste the URL from your phone’s browser or install the bookmarklet. Content can be posted to Scoop.it by simply clicking your browser’s share button:

...

And just like its iPhone counterpart, the app allows to you do perform essentially all of the tasks of curating your topics without telling anyone you did it from your phone. Whether your posts are published from your phone or from your computer, your topic pages will always sport the same fluid magazine layout.

...

The main goal of mobile internet is to make sure you can do all of the great things you do on your computer from your phone without compromising any quality, and that is exactly what we have in mind when creating our mobile apps.

...

We know that your passions weren’t developed from sitting in front of your computer all day, so why should you have to do this when you want to share them with the world? Take your curation mobile with the new Scoop.it Android app.

Content Curation In 45 Minutes A Day... And Free

Content Curation In 45 Minutes A Day... And Free | learning stuff | Scoop.it

I’m sure a lot of you guys have looked into curation software available ...

Obviously with the radically different price points they all do different things, but here’s the gist – a whole lot of this you can do for free.

 

Step One – Define your Parameters

Define your parameters by where you want the goods to go. Make sure everything is accessible from the beginning so you can leverage your curated content efficiently from the start.


Step Two – Choose your Weapons

e.g. Timely.is; G+ and FB

 

Step Three – Be Intentional with your Schedule

I can’t speak to your industry/niche but I can tell you that when I do my curation at somewhere between 6 and 8am EST I find a goldmine of posts that are brand-flipping-new

 

Step Four – Be Crazy Time Sensitive

I make sure to only curate content that is timely [less than 1% of the time curate something more than 24 hours old]

Open up a google search and type in “content marketing” at the beginning of my day, and set it to the last 24 hours.

 

Step Five – Be Consistent

As long as you are curating the same general stuff over and over it will work for you.


Notice: Steps 1-5 are all about the setup or protocol. Steps 6-9 are the actual daily work.

 

Step Six – Prepare for Battle

Open windows to the following places:

Google search
Timely.is
WP dashboard to my curation site
Google +
Facebook
Twitter
I also have a Word document open

 

Step Seven – Get Rolling

e.g. search for the term “content marketing” in the last 24 hours as shown above; grab 5 or 6 posts that are relevant and make tweets about them and put them on timely/buffer/scoopit

 

Step Eight – Natural Overflow

Doing twitter first thing after curation is great, if you have the time.

20-30 minutes after you have your automated posts in place to interact with your feed, clean out the spam tweeps, follow back the real people, etc.

 

Step Nine – Use what you Learn

Use your curation is as the basis for your own blogs

Not regurgitation, but rather letting your new-found knowledge fuel your next post. Or, add to the list of blog ideas you have on a running list somewhere.

 

Setting aside this 45 minutes a day to get the most relevant pieces of content your industry has to offer can not only fill your feeds, but it can also fuel your entire day. And it should, because you should be talking about the latest things in your industry.

Create A Multimedia Timeline To Curate Stories That Have Strong Chronological Narrative: Timeline

Create A Multimedia Timeline To Curate Stories That Have Strong Chronological Narrative: Timeline | learning stuff | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Timeline is a Javascript open-source solution that allows anyone to create a visual timeline that integrates text, tweets, images, maps, audio recordings and video clips on an infinite scrollable bar. 

 

A project funded by the Knight News Innovation Lab, Timeline works great with stories that have a strong chronological narrative. It does not work well for stories that need to jump around in the timeline.

 

Mashable Sonia Paul writes about it: "Timeline is similar to Storify in that it allows users to aggregate media on the web, it differs in its operation.

 

With Storify, users can drag and drop content into a post.

 

With Timeline, users can either embed the code onto their website using JSON, or — if they don’t want to mess with any coding — they can fill in a ready-made Timeline template on Google Docs.

 

The project is currently hosted on GitHub, and users can find specific directions on how to both embed the code and use the Google Doc template there, too.

 

Future plans for the project include support of more media type, as well as iPhone compatibility, B.C. time support and better seconds and milliseconds support." 

 

Here is the GDoc ready-made template: https://docs.google.com/previewtemplate?id=0AppSVxABhnltdEhzQjQ4MlpOaldjTmZLclQxQWFTOUE&mode=public&ndplr=1&pli=1#
