The Blog As a Narrative - Worms In the Fridge

The Blog As a Narrative - Worms In the Fridge | Metawriting | Scoop.it
Earlier this week I was Facebook chatting with my friend Kim about her blog. Kim was struggling with a direction for her blog. A lot of people struggle with the same thing. Sometimes the struggle comes from not knowing what to right about while other times it comes from having too many things to write …

How To Find Openly Licensed Educational Resources You Can Use [Infographic]

How To Find Openly Licensed Educational Resources You Can Use [Infographic] | Metawriting | Scoop.it
Most of us turn to the internet when we are looking for resources to use for a presentation, report or article. The internet holds the key to so many robust resources.

Yet how many of these resources can you legally use for free? How many of them can you adapt?

That’s where Open Educational Resources (OER) can help. Here’s an infographic from the Center for Open Educational Resources and Language Learning (at the University of Texas at Austin) that can help.

Every language teacher and student should contribute to make this a powerful resource concept. Language is an instrument; use it, take care of it, share it.

Thanks to @Dennis T OConnor for sharing this infographic on finding and identifying open source education resources.

Des idées de départ en expression écrite et littérature : images ou phrases, de quoi stimuler la créativité.

En anglais, mais il ne s'agit que d'une phrase simple généralement, donc pourquoi pas un peu de LVE en plus ?

Curate or Die: Why You Must Curate Content in 2015

Curate or Die: Why You Must Curate Content in 2015 | Metawriting | Scoop.it
The key to success in a myriad of web content that may drown us in 2015 is to curate content. The whys and hows are explained in-depth inside this article.

Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, January 24, 3:23 AM

It's interesting to see that content curation is evolving from an opportunity to a necessity as communication shifts from traditional methods (PR, advertising, old-style SEO...) to new ones (content marketing, inbound marketing, social media...). In this new world of communication many things have changed and professionals or companies who want to get heard need to consider this question:


Do people listen to you because they have to or because they want to?


As my friend Steve Rosenbaum, author of Curation Nation, puts it in his latest book, Curate This, we can't rely anymore on captive audiences. Consumers filter out spammy messages which is why, to be heard, we have to curate or die.

Marta Torán's curator insight, January 26, 3:46 PM

La curación de contenidos, casi un imperativo si queremos sobrevivir a la información. Muy bueno.

Dean Ryan G. Martin's curator insight, January 28, 12:08 AM

It says "Content curation requires hard work." I disagree. Content curation is my hobby. I love curating contents even I'm not paid.

GIANFRANCO MARINI's curator insight, February 13, 12:34 PM

Un intervento di Robin Good comparso su Scoop.it l'11/2/15 e che smonta alcuni "miti" e "false rappresentazioni" della Content Curation che circolano spesso in rete.

 

Questi in sintesi i miti:

# La Content Curation non è un modo per lavorare meno, produrre più contenuti e acquisire facilmente visibilità

# non si tratta nemmeno di aggiungere qualche riga a un contenuto o produrre una serie di link

 

Robin Good elenca poi in 8 punti in che cosa consiste l'autentico "lavoro del curatore". Il testo è in inglese ma facilmente comprensibile.

 

Questo breve intervento è di notevole interesse per:

# rettificare il paradigma teorico che sta coagulandosi attorno alla Content Curation

# calibrare la propria attività di curatori sul "valore aggiunto" che occorre produrre nella cura dei contenuti

# Comprendere la reale portata della Curation che può essere una delle strategie vincenti se non la si intende e pratica unicamente come attività di produrre "raccolte di link" ma

# attività di "produzione di senso" nel caos entropico del Web

# Proprio coltivare questo aspetto della Curation né evidenzia la valenza didattica in quanto attività di "interpretazione", "Ermeneutica del Web"

Kate Reid's curator insight, February 18, 5:19 PM

Robin Good  offers sage advice for school librarians as we content curate.
