Crossing the newspaper chasm: Is it better to be funded by readers? | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it
Both the Financial Times and the New York Times have either already crossed or are close to crossing an important threshold: namely, the point at which revenue from reader subscriptions exceeds the revenue they get from advertising.

The Evolution of the Word “Curation” - Buzzword Tracker

The Evolution of the Word “Curation” - Buzzword Tracker | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

Robin Good: From 500 B.C. to July 2012, here is a short and quite skippy selection of key dates in the evolution of the word curation. A good idea but running a bit short in terms of execution.

I think there is a lot more to be surfaced there that is of relevance and that has been omitted, but then again this is a great opportunity for some other curator to pick up on this theme and go a bit further.

Interesting. 6/10

Content Curation Can Help Education System Breed Future Workskills

Content Curation Can Help Education System Breed Future Workskills | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

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

A local TV reporter on covering both Columbine and the Aurora theater shooting | Poynter.

A local TV reporter on covering both Columbine and the Aurora theater shooting | Poynter. | Multimedia Journalism | Scoop.it

I am a local television reporter.

I never traveled to Afghanistan. I didn’t cover the war in Iraq. I work for CBS in Denver, Colorado. To foreign network correspondents, that might seem dull. But they haven’t covered a mass school shooting in a suburb. They haven’t been awakened at two a.m. to dash off to a mass shooting at a movie theater.

I opted for a career covering my community. I wanted a balance of family life and journalism. At some point, in my twenties, I decided to abandon network glamour for community involvement.

But no one told me I’d be interviewing parents who lost their children because they went to school at one day. No one warned me that the deaths of young people would come, not in a war zone, but in a suburban movie theater.

I never envisioned that not once, but twice, in my career, I would have parents come up to me frantic and fearful, begging for news of their children, only to tell them I had no news to share. Their children, first at Columbine High School, and now at Theater Nine in Aurora, were dead.
