12 Experts Share Top Curation Tips | Novel Uses of Technology | Scoop.it

Six steps to easy content curation.

 

Curation is sometimes confusing. Everyone has a different definition and it's used in many different ways as part of content and marketing strategies.

 

I asked 10 of my favorite curation experts for their best tips, tools, their favorite curator and suggestions on innovative uses of curation. Each is a curator on Scoop.it, my favorite curation tool and channel. New and experienced curators are going to learn from their advice.

Gordon Shupe's insight:

One of my favorite takeaways from #FETC 2015 was a humble teacher that had a cool T-shirt that said 'formative' across the front. No booth, no concurrent session, but a very innovative web platform for live response formative assessment that he was demonstrating to anyone who would listen. This is going to be a website for my teachers to try and one for all of us to watch. Very unique. Watch the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Cu8F6gMshg&app=desktop

Building an Entrepreneurial Mindset - Getting Smart by Tom Vander Ark - DIY, entrepreneurial mindset, maker, Reynoldsburg | Novel Uses of Technology | Scoop.it
