What if we considered content curation as a value, not just a means to market products & services?

Tips to improve curation and benefit both you and other users

'Timothy Leyfer's curator insight, January 24, 10:20 AM

"Explain, always clearly why something you are curating/communicating is relevant. Contextualize."

This is just one of the five great points from Sam Burroughs that we should consider when communicating relevant information to people on our list.

There are four other great tips equally as important, that we should use when communicating information to others.

In today's fast-paced world the information that we are trying to communicate to others should be user centered.

Why Scoop.it Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | TeachThought.com

Why Scoop.it Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | TeachThought.com | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it

Scoop.it collates work from online publications using an online magazine format, and this visual impact alone makes it very effective.

 

The additional appeal of broadcasting from a hub allows me to tap into and share with my ed tech networks, which is why I find myself using it more often during time constraints.

 

First of all, it’s powerful–it incorporates multiple elements of familiar social media tools. But it’s also very flexible–the mobile app is quite functional for both iPhone and Android, and a toolbar plugin can be installed on browser windows. Scoop.it’s athleticism makes it a time-saver; educators and students will quickly grasp its value in content gathering.

 

Additionally, using Scoop.it will meet multiple standards (Common Core and NETS-S) across the curriculum. Students use critical thinking skills to collect, evaluate and analyze content; they may identify trends from discourse; they develop writing skills in original expression; and they interact, communicate and publish to a global audience. But perhaps more importantly, students practice digital citizenship and personal responsibility to lifelong learning.

I'm completely convinced that Scoop.it is the curation tool of choice.  Try it. You'll like it

Why use scoopit?

Peter Mellow's comment, March 5, 2013 3:02 PM
Tim, we compared a number of curation tools using masternewmedia's "The 15 Basic Traits of a News / Content Curation System" as a guide and Scoopit ticked most of the boxes. My only worry about it is that currently there not an export or backup facility, hopefully something that they are working on. For me, it is the ease of use, if the UI is good then that makes life a lot easier! :-)

Paula Silva's curator insight, December 11, 2012 12:15 PM

An image is a powerful way to convey an idea, that’s why services like Pinterest are getting a lot of attention, which implies it is meaningful to its users.

 

Curation tools like Pinterest can be used as educational tools al all levels. In some colleges and universities Pinterest is brought into the classroom, or used to offer boards focused on academic resources at the school.

 

Online Universities lists a few of the schools that are leading the way using Pinterest as a great social media tool for higher education.
