Content Curation for Twitter: How To Be a "Thought Leader DJ" | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

This is a post from August 2010 but found it to be really interesting with some good points for curators. Yes, you can use Twitter for curation.

 

The author talks about mixing content that your audience will find interesting similar to a DJ. "As a Content Curator, you should be entertaining."

 

1. First realized that you ARE a subject matter expert.

2. Know your market.

3. Search via hashtags and alerts.

4. Know the "Power of Three" to effectively engage.

5. Know that how you write your tweets is just as important as what you are tweeting.

6. Elevate your peers.

7. Develop good taste!

8. Become a valued resource to your community.

9. Be the good news channel.

10. Know "when" to tweet.

11. Become part of a bigger conversation.

12. Follow industry conferences.

13. Understand there are differences if you curate for a global audience.

14. Content Curators need to follow a lot of people.

What kind of digital curator are you?

What kind of digital curator are you? | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

This is an interesting workshop presentation given at #converge11 by Joyce Seitzinger. It has a focus on curation in EduTech but is generic as well in a lot of aspects.

 

In particular, I love the distinction she makes from slide 22 onward between all types of "curators": a fun way of showing what curation best practices should be all about.

I've been exploring the idea of 'the social media classroom' and how I view teachers with an emerging role as curators, but also teaching student the skills of curation so they can get the right resources in an age of ubiquitous information. I'll have to keep in touch.

Nice one thanks for this. I have been following your Scoops. You can also set up and share your scoops on Internet Billboards, it's very easy to set up and do and there is no extra effort just a couple clicks. Like this http://t.co/63g5ViEq Also do you have a blog? Just curious.
