Teaching Students to Become Curators of Ideas: The Curation Project

Teaching Students to Become Curators of Ideas: The Curation Project | Scoop.it on the Web | Scoop.it

"Over the last couple of years, I’ve come to think of my role as a teacher as that of a curator of ideas" says Corinne Weisgerber who teaches Social Media and Communication at St Edwards Unniversity in Austin, TX (if you haven't yet, check out her great prez here).


As she explained in this post, the Curation Project was about getting her students "to set up a network of online mentors using social media tools" and "to identify experts in their field and connect with them in order to build a personal learning network (PLN)." 


The idea behing the PNL is to help them discover valuable information through social search that they wouldn't have discovered otherwise.


Interesting project and read.


And great work by the students who used various curation platforms for the project, including Storify and Scoop.it (links in the post)

#USFCA: How to reach Millennials thanks to Content Curation

#USFCA: How to reach Millennials thanks to Content Curation | Scoop.it on the Web | Scoop.it

We recently spoke with Thomas Listerman, director of e-communications at University of San Francisco, about the private university’s #USFCA – a user-generated project to reach Millennials.

Guillaume Decugis's insight:

"In nine months, we have been able to generate 130,000 views and garner over 960 unique contributors" which - Listerman adds - is not bad considering that the University of San Francisco has about 10,000 students. 


A great example of building a community by leveraging existing engagement on social networks and content curation: by curating the best content shared from its community, a brand can gain a lot of credibility, brand awareness and message consistency. 

more...
Guillaume Decugis's curator insight, February 10, 7:43 PM

According to a lot of studies and opinions, Millenials are hard to reach: they're supposed to have short attention spans, be constantly multi-tasking and have low tolerance for messages that don't relate to them. 


Whether or less these are clichés, what the University of San Francisco did is remarkable for several reasons:


1. They're doing with limited resources what some major brands have failed to achieve.


2. They're building on existing behaviors of their community instead of trying to impose new ones. 


3. They measure their success by looking both at overall impact (views, people reached) and contributions - showing clearly that the amplification role of their community is key in their communication strategy.


Impressive use case of content curation for brand development through a community.

This is a Movable Feast we may all want to follow. Here are some reviews of some interesting start-up companies and ideas that are taking off lately. We may be able to turn more communities into "Moveable Feast" as Hemingway described the early 19th Paris as a young man. He arrived in Paris and discovered all sorts of creative minds and events filling Paris. That "movable feast" happens with understanding of one's own personal needs and empathic understanding of others' needs and creating useful, exciting answers and expressions for those longings and wishes.

Here is  a nice review of Scoop.it. If you are at this link you already have some exposure to scoop.it. This is a great curating tool and I have tried several. The only compliant I get is from people trying to access what I post to read. Which matters because I do spend time and now even some funds to curate about things that matter. I have placed that concern through the feedback system and they normally get back to me quickly on things of concern. Hopefully there will be an answer to that question soon. It seems to come mainly from some trying to access the link from Facebook, so it may be a Facebook issue.
