5 Curation Habits That Can Change Your Content Marketing

5 Curation Habits That Can Change Your Content Marketing | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it
I am inspired by curators—and it is a relevant idea for marketing. The business world has been increasingly turning towards curation as a way to add meaning to marketing. I often describe it as the forgotten side of content marketing. Amidst all the discussion about creating great content – who will take on the valuable role of just helping us to find the great content that already exists on the web or otherwise?

La curation est un excellent moyen de partager l'information, de découvrir de nouvelles idées ou concepts, et d'influencer.

Agreed. Curation is an under-appreciated skill, especially it seems, by marketers..

Emotionally-charged stimuli capture people’s attention immediately. On top of that, the brain remembers an emotional experience better than anything else. In eLearning, you can make this work for you by encouraging emotional response. Many of these tools, such as compelling stories, videos, images, and visually engaging screens can evoke emotion; try to connect emotionally with learners, and they will learn more and better.

Leadership has been changing for some time, but not uniformly. It is not readily evident in education that hierarchy is a thing of the past. What this means is that we are educating children and youth in a model that theorists think is passe. No wonder we have a crisis. Practice and theory are not separate, they are fused.

Deborah Verran's comment, March 29, 2014 6:13 PM
Leadership is not just about having ability it is all about demonstrating that ability in practice i.e. standing up & accepting both responsibility & accountability

Teachers Guide to The 21st Century Learning Model : Connected Learning | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

Why connected learning

 

Connected learning is a necessity in this digital age. More and more of our students learning, attention, and access to information is taking place outside of classrooms and through online networks and exchanges. Connected learning, however, can help them cultivate the skills necessary for fulfilling adult lives and careers and that formal instruction alone could not afford.

ThingLink helps you create and find images from all over the net.  With those images you can then place comments and details to help your students to understand the image. You can also make your images come to life with music and video clips. you tell your stories.  I have found that the use of Thinglinks are very useful in educating students with LD's because it places: images, texts, and audio methods, at the teacher's disposal.

Content Curation Can Help Education System Breed Future Workskills

Content Curation Can Help Education System Breed Future Workskills | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

Enrique Rubio... Muy interesante propuesta respecto a la conveniencia de utilizar la curación de contenidos en el ámbito de la docencia y el aprendizaje.

 

Se describen las capacidades que se desarrollan mediante el proceso de curación de contenidos, relacionándolas a su vez con las 10 habilidades  profesionales que se requerirán en un futuro próximo, segun el report 'Apollo Research Institute Future Workskills 2020', quien sugiere la necesidad, en general, de cambios en el sistemas educativo.

 

Interesante, también, las definiciones y comentarios asociados para cada una de dichas habilidades requeridas.

 

Robin Good: If you are interested in exploring content curation as a possible venue for innovating teaching and learning approaches, you will find lots of valuable information in this new article by @NancyW entitled Developing Future Workskills Through Content Curation.

 

In it she points to a study conducted last year, the Apollo Research Institute Future Workskills 2020, that identifies critical workskills needed for future jobs and how fitting "content curation" may be in cultivating and refining many of those.

 

She writes: "A closer look suggests that critical workforce skills identified in this \ study can be easily aligned with the skills practiced with content curation.

 

The skills a student employs to successfully curate information include curiosity, media literacy, ability to make connections across disciplines, information literacy, the ability to evaluate and understand perspective, synthesize and evaluate information, and a good dose of self-direction."

 

"Future Workskills 2020 suggests a monumental shift and change needs to begin now in our education system.

 

These skills can be developed through the process of content curation.

 

Content curation has the added benefit of helping students find their passions for and take ownership of their learning..."

 

 

Right on target. Recommended. 8/10

Understanding the Value of Curation for Education: Nancy White

Understanding the Value of Curation for Education: Nancy White | Maximizing Business Value | Scoop.it

Robin Good: What does curation mean from an educational viewpoint? And what is the key difference between "collecting" and "curating".

Nancy White (@NancyW), a 21st Century Learning & Innovation Specialist and the author of Innovations in Education blog, has written an excellent article, dissecting the key characterizing traits of curation, as a valuable resource to create and share knowledge. 

 

She truly distills some key traits of curation in a way that is clear and comprehensible to anyone.

 

She writes: "The first thing I realized is that in order to have value-added benefits to curating information, the collector needs to move beyond just classifying the objects under a certain theme to deeper thinking through a) synthesis and b) evaluation of the collected items.

 

How are they connected?"

 

Excellent definition. 

 

And then she also frames perfectly the relevance of "context" for any meaningful curation project by writing: "I believe when we curate, organization moves beyond thematic to contextual – as we start to build knowledge and understanding with each new resource that we curate.

 

Themes have a common unifying element – but don’t necessarily explain the “why.”

 

Theme supports a central idea – Context allows the learner to determine why that idea (or in this case, resource) is important.

 

So, as collecting progresses into curating, context becomes essential to determine what to keep, and what to discard."

 

But there's a lot more insight distilled in this article as Nancy captures with elegance the difference between collecting for a personal interest and curating for a specific audience. 

 

She finally steals my full endorsement for this article by discretely inquirying how great a value it would be to allow students to "curate" the domains of interest they need to master.

 

Excellent. Highly recommended. 9/10

In the leadership development world, creativity is currently getting a great deal of attention. But what is it? Can you learn it? Is it a skill? How do we lead in ways that encourage it?


When we explore the question “What is creativity?” from a thinking and learning point of view, an open and active mind is clearly required – one that can see new possibilities. But is there more to it than that? This post explores the variables that make up what we think of as “creativity.”
