Curation: The Future of Search

Curation: The Future of Search | Online Teacher Underground | Scoop.it

As with many new technologies, there is much to be learned in the realm of content curation. One thing that Dennis learned only in the practice of curation is that it could very well be the future if search. When he joined Scoop.it, Dennis did not expect to find "such a rich and expert community of searchers." He knew that he would have a place to share all of his content and build a resource for his audience, but what he found in this practice, he never could have expected.

 

With his continued use of Scoop.it and curation, Dennis has found that he can rely on other curators as a vital source of information discovery. He even chooses Scoop.it over other tools as a search engine! What makes Scoop.it unique for search is that all of the content you will find is selected by thoughtful editors with an expertise on the topic that is being searched for. Dennis has found that the quality of search results on Scoop.it has been unmatched by a regular search engine algorithm because of this. He has found numerous pieces of relevant content intelligently selected by other curators, as well as being discovered for the content that he has curated.

La Conservation, c'est l'avenir de la recherche.

-"Il y a beaucoup à apprendre dans le domaine de la conservation des contenus".

Philippe Trebaul's curator insight, March 1, 2013 3:19 AM
Conservation: L'avenir de la recherche...

"Comme avec beaucoup de nouvelles technologies, il ya beaucoup à apprendre dans le domaine de la conservation des contenus. Une chose que Dennis a appris que dans la pratique de la conservation des est que cela pourrait très bien être l'avenir si la recherche.Quand il a rejoint Scoop.it, Dennis ne m'attendais pas à trouver "une communauté riche et expert des chercheurs." Il savait qu'il aurait une place pour partager l'ensemble de son contenu et de construire une ressource pour son auditoire, mais ce qu'il a trouvé dans cette pratique, il n'aurait jamais pu prévoir.


Avec son utilisation continue de Scoop.it et la conservation, Dennis a trouvé qu'il peut compter sur d'autres conservateurs comme une source vitale de découverte de l'information. Il choisit même Scoop.it sur d'autres outils comme un moteur de recherche! Ce qui rend Scoop.it unique pour la recherche, c'est que tout le contenu que vous trouverez est sélectionné par les éditeurs réfléchies avec une expertise sur le sujet qui est recherché. Dennis a trouvé que la qualité des résultats de la recherche sur Scoop.it a été inégalée par un algorithme de moteur de recherche régulier à cause de cela. Il a trouvé de nombreux morceaux de contenu pertinent intelligemment sélectionnés par d'autres conservateurs, ainsi que d'être découvert pour le contenu qu'il a organisée".

Sometimes it's worth reflecting the range of ways in which learning has been considered over time. I don't think it's going to become any less complex as we explore both new paradigms and interactions between old ones.
