The Art of Discovering Pearls Inside the Sand: How, Tools and Skills Advice from Beth Kanter

Content curation - the process of finding, organizing, and  sharing topical, relevant content for your audience that supports your nonprofit's engagement or campaign goals (or your professional learning) begins with "Spotting the Awesome."

David Collet's insight:

I like this.

 

Long ago, in a former life, I used to get newspaper articles passed to me each day that were relevant to my job and/or my aspirations. I would take the necessary hour or so each day to remain current with world affairs related to what I did or where I wanted to go.

 

Curation is a lot like that except it is more global in concept. 

 

This article talks about how to do this in the best way.

Thanks for scooping the post - and modeling good content curation skills ...

1.) changed headline (way better than the original)
2.) Photo to illustrate headline
3.) Summarized the key points
4.) Added additional links from the source
5.) Shared it through channels

Thank you Beth, hehe. It was meant to be "in the ocean", but then I found that great picture and decided to move onto "sand".

Thank you so much for referencing my work and for highlighting, as we all must learn to do more often, the good stuff you found in it.

How did this dog "spot the awesome"? A nose for it…That's what good content curators do.

This is a follow up to my previous post.

 

This is specific to a particular field of interest.

 

It is a practical example of what I wrote in that previous post.

Emphasises the importance of integrating new information into your own mindset and then working out how to apply it.

Wow, this is what I've been thinking I should have my independent study kids doing!

The Future of Search May Not Be About Google: It's You In The End Who Will Decide

The Future of Search May Not Be About Google: It's You In The End Who Will Decide | Malaysian Youth Scene | Scoop.it
There is a evil side of Google which revealed itself in the Filter Bubble, invasion of privacy, the lack of transparency, in the monopoly induction of behavior and especially in what is happening in the search environment.

David Collet's insight:

This is a great article. I don't believe Google is 'evil' anymore than I believed Microsoft was / is 'evil'. They are simply businesses trying to generate the most success which is measure by revenue. And they will do what is necessary to make that happen.

 

Our responsibility is to ensure there is always an alternative.

 

Try a different search engine today.

Stephen Dale's curator insight, January 13, 2014 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?

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

Mrs. Dilling's curator insight, February 13, 2014 11:52 AM

My favorite statement, "we must always be aware and well informed about the intentions of companies, and never stop having multiple options for any service."

 

This article was an eye opener for me. I had never questioned Google before.
