Curating is about finding and selecting information in order to learn about a subject. Youngsters can be encouraged to do this  pre-school.  This motivational 21st century skill can be encouraged at home. with educational games toys and and books which stimulates interest.  For example children can learn about  science by interacting with Chemistry Lab; Horrible Science - explosive experiments; Newton's Cradle and Science Museum.  By the time they get to school they are already full of curiosity and ready to increase their knowledge.  Audrey curating for www.homeschoolsource.co.uk

By Robin Good,

Here's a short first-hand report highlighting how an 8th grade social studies class teacher (Terri Inloes) has fully leveraged the content curation potential to let her students dive, discover and make sense of topics (in this case social reform movements) that they had not studied before. All by themselves.


Here the steps taken to make this happen:


a) By using the Question Formulation Technique, the teacher prepared pairs of photographs representing each of the reform movements, one picture dating back to the late 19th century, and another representing where that social reform movement stands in today’s society. 


b) After checking out all of the photos, students settled on the pair of pictures that most caught their interest.


c) They brainstormed and refined a set of specific questions, and then shared their thinking with the class. 

d) With the feedback received they selected the topic which they would curate. 

e) At this point students planned their research strategies. By using 5 different graphic organizers from the book Q Tasks, by Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan, students were allowed to choose the one that they thought would help them the most in planning their keyword search strategies. 


f) Students were assigned WordPress blogs and provided basic instructions on how to use them to 

curate and publish their research work.


g) Discovery and real learning kicked in as students proceeded in collaborative groups to research and document their chosen topic. 


You can see some of the outcomes that this assignment produced right here:

A very inspiring example of content curation can be effectively applied in the classroom with impressive results. 


Highly recommended. 9/10


Thanks to Nancy White of Innovations in Education for participating, writing and reporting about it.

 Thanks to Robin Good for the fine summary in this insight.
The ideas here offer a great classroom challenge to students.{Monica}

A new analysis model for content marketing from Kraft Foods - Swipp

A new analysis model for content marketing from Kraft Foods - Swipp | language and technology | Scoop.it

The post, "The Details Behind Kraft’s Content Marketing Strategy" had three things that were high-value: two matrices and a video from Julie Fleischer, Director of Media and Consumer Engagement at Kraft Foods.

 

....Reading through this point-of-view on content marketing also tied nicely into a conversation I had last week with Vernon Niven, CEO of the very-cool NeedTagger service, which is a “customer search engine for social media.” (Vernon is also, notably, an early investor in Flipboard.) In our conversation, he noted that as content marketing continues to grow, a successful and scalable content strategy increasingly relies on content curation as much as it does on content creation. Just like Joy’s Law, which states that “No matter who you are, most of the smartest people work for someone else,” there is a content corollary, which is that “The best content on the internet was created by someone else.”

 

Tying these two threads together comes up with the realization that the executional half of Fleischer’s model must have content curation as part of the model as well, not just content curation. Otherwise, the model can’t scale and, more importantly, you are under-serving your community by not sharing the best things with them....

This is valuable insight into the important role curation can, and should, play in content marketing.
