Let's All Shed Tears For The Crappy Startups That Can't Raise Any More Money | Maven Pop | Scoop.it

"Meanwhile our country is facing a crisis because we have a shortage of students in STEM -- science, technology, engineering and math. Every big company in Silicon Valley is starved for talent. And there is an entire generation of young people who, instead of studying those hard subjects, would rather slap together the fourteenth version of a peer-to-peer car sharing service or alternative taxi service.

Where To Find Good Alternative Sources for Content Curation

Where To Find Good Alternative Sources for Content Curation | Maven Pop | Scoop.it


Robin Good: If you are looking for ways to expand your horizon of content sources that you can use to find valuable content for your curated news channel, Pawan Deshpande, founder and CEO of Curata, has done an excellent job of listing and describing the many alternatives available to you.

 

While many beginner curators rely on their set of RSS feeds and on simple web searches to find new and interesting stuff on their topic of interest, there are a dozen more content source types that can be tapped to find relevant stuff. This article helps you start learning where to look to find them.

 

 

Useful. Resourceful. 8/10

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, February 3, 2013 2:08 PM

Learn to curate, then tech curation to your students.  This process embodies information fluency skills and critical reading.  This is the sweetspot for hitting the Common Core Standards and doing what you love: research!

Looks like I have some reading to do :)

There’s no crying in journalism

@laurenashburn decries the dispassionate coverage of the shootings. I'd go further and demand added value. In these days of tight budgets, what's the point of sending someone to Connecticut to tell you what's already on the web?
