"Welcome to the first webinar in OVAE’s 2013 community college webinar series. This event will bring together experts from the field and local practitioners to discuss efforts to transform adult education to better prepare adult learners to successfully transition to postsecondary education. The webinar will feature Barbara Endel from Jobs for the Future to discuss the work of the Accelerating Opportunity initiative in scaling up its adult education reform model in seven states. Judy Alamprese from Abt Associates will share the key findings from her recent study on transforming reading instruction in adult education programs. The webinar will also highlight the work of LaGuardia Community College in developing bridge programs that ease ABE and GED students’ transitions to postsecondary education and training."

The newspaper. One of the most sacred institutions of the publishing world and one of its oldest, most respected methods of knowledge gathering and collection of popular opinion, dating all the way back to the first printing presses ever created.

Eric Moran's curator insight, February 5, 2013 1:42 PM

Having lived through this era at one of the papers on this list. I can attest to much that is stated in this article. People simply digest content the way they want to now, not the way that publishers want it delivered. People now have the power to seek out the content that they want.They can now deliver, create and share content with the many tools avialable. The shift of content power will continue.

 

Newspapers are doing the best they can to deliver and create content to readers. The problem is, they typically resort to old methods or try to recreate something that user does not want.

Steven Mallach's comment, July 5, 2013 12:21 AM
I am still convinced that newspapers can thrive in a content rich environment. Perhaps the key is adding value to the print media experience. Although it may seem counter intuitive (what's the value add?) newspapers can act as gatekeepers to content using technology like augmented reality. The use of mobile devices like Smartphones can allow readers of niche publications at least to access further granularity of information through scanning a page and linking to online content. Using this model newspapers or specialist publications can become gatekeepers, sort of print content curators if you will. People (at least some demographics like those over 50) still like the comfort of print, the key is adding value.

Because nonprofits have the ability to tell such moving and compelling stories and share insightful data into the problems their organizations are trying to solve, I think these organizations should be at the forefront of embracing content marketing, providing their constituents blogs, video and infographics.

What Makes a Good Content Curator?

What Makes a Good Content Curator? | Reading, Writing, and Thinking | Scoop.it

Excerpted from the article:
"Sharing good content shows you understand what’s interesting and valuable to your target markets. It will help you increase your followers and establish your credibility.
A good content curator has to sift through tons of content, quickly and efficiently, finding what is both relevant and good quality.

So what does a good content curator look like?
1) Really Long Arms:
You have the expanded reach to know the smaller players with a unique perspective, the powerhouse publishers, and all of the niche players. This allows for a healthy variety of content, with differing perspectives.

2) Super Fast Scanning Eyes:
An efficient content curator knows how to scan an article for legitimacy, value, and relevance to their target market.

3) A Raised Eyebrow:
Each time you come upon something new, your eyebrow is already up, because you’re there to sniff it out to make sure it’ll pass the test. People will lose interest in what you share and you will hurt your credibility if you share content that isn’t high quality.

4) A Belly Full of Hunger:
Good content curators love what they do and are passionate about traversing the wide expanse of the web to find the best content possible."

Robin Good's insight:

 

Lindsey Weintraub at SocialMediaToday has a short but valuable guide to four key traits a good curator really needs to have.

 

From the ability to search and tap into sources that should not be what everyone else is looking at, to the ability to know in and out its chosen niche of interest and its players, the good content curator has an uncanny talent for scanning, selecting and triple-verifying anything potentially interesting before even considering showcasing in its selections.

 

Rightful. Good for anyone just starting out with curation. 7/10

WaPo: ‘Error Has No Rights’ | The American Conservative | Reading, Writing, and Thinking | Scoop.it
Anne Bosworth's insight:

OK, so it's not like you haven't been told about the biases of news media. They admit it unashamedly.

Here's some of the proof...

n a nutshell, when it comes to reporting on the debate and events around the same-sex marriage issue, the Post feels it has no responsibility to report fairly and accurately on people who oppose same-sex marriage, because they are morally wrong. Excerpts:

I get a steady stream of e-mails and phone calls from readers who assert that The Post has a “pro-gay agenda” and publishes too many “puffy” stories about gay marriage, and that it even allows too many same-sex couples to appear in the Date Lab feature in Sunday’s WP Magazine.

“The conservative, pro-family side gets short shrift,” as one reader recently put it, and The Post “caters slavishly to Dupont Circle.”

Indeed, that reader got into a vigorous three-way e-mail dialogue with a Post reporter and me over the issue, an exchange that goes to the heart of the question of whether The Post, and journalists in general, are hopelessly liberal and genetically tone-deaf to social conservatives.
