Why Content Curation is the Ultimate Compliment to the Creator | Curation with Scoop.it, Pinterest, & Social Media | Scoop.it
Before today, imitation was the greatest form of flattery. If your idea was good enough to be copied, then you were golden. But now, with the state of the web in our lives, this balance is shifting.

You know, it sometimes takes me a while to GET & love a new thing - (I was a year late to Scoopit & Now I can't live without it) - seeing an example of Storify like this sells it!

 

AND they're all great reasons, too!

By curating it, enriching it with your own insight, and publishing it to your own topic page, you create a media that doesn’t just live on the iPad App, but is accessible and discoverable by anyone on the web — and just like on the web version of Scoop.it, you’ll find this is the perfect content hub to feed your social channels, enrich your blog or website and even create newsletters."

I know I've been Scooping a lot about Scoopit today - feels slighty naughty, even because I do LOVE them so much. (and I'm NOT on the payroll - not even a hoodie or a t-shirt!)

 

Flatteringly but maddeningly, I get emails every day from companies wanting my shout outs, RT's, & blog focus nonwithstanding that I say my regard can't be bought (though a hoodie goes a long way ;-) lol --So here's why....

 

Scoopit is a one stop shop for glossy gorgeous customizable digital curation coolness!  

 

It organizes for you, it Tweets for you, it collaborates and publishes all with a click using the handy bookmarklet on my toolbar. Nom nom yummy!

Explanation of levels of content curation - sets aspirational goal. Relevance to students as a pathway for their development. See Robin Good's great summary.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, September 22, 2013 6:36 PM

Robin Good opinion:

Kirsten Wilson analyzes three different levels of content curation presently in use and describes accurately the differences between these. 

 

"In regards to levels of curation it is much like Blooms. There is knowledge level curation- it is done for remembering and understanding (the “Learner Level”).


Another level is applying and analyzing- it is curated for use or been used and is a proven tool for using whether it be your tool or a tool you have discovered from your global connections via Social Media, blogs or simple internet searches (the “Facilitator Level”). 


Finally, there are curations that go to the level of evaluation and creation… these are the curations that become invaluable tools to others. It takes the most work, but the result is most thorough and the resource it provides to others can be invaluable (the “Designer Level”)."

 

He concludes by reminding all would-be curators the importance of attribution and the amount of effort that the "designer level" of curation requires: "In this world of immediate access and available content make every effort to honor the source of your curation, inspiration and/or springboard for design. 


Those that do curate at a “Designer” level and in many cases are the first in their field of expertise to find a new “method” put hours into the development and design."

 

 

Rightful. Instructional. 7/10
