27 Ways To Inspire Innovative Thinking In Students

27 Ways To Inspire Innovative Thinking In Students | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it

Innovative thinking in students will flower when we design classrooms that absolutely can’t survive without it. Same with critical thinking, self-direction, creativity, and so on. Until we reach that point, it’s on the shoulders of the classroom teacher to tease it out of students through a combination of inspiration, modeling, scaffolding, and creating persistent opportunity.

Robin Good's curator insight, June 26, 10:17 AM



Guillaume De Cugis, co-founder of Scoop.it, hits the nail right on the head for content marketers with a good article on the Business2Community.com site, where he highlights the declining benefits of social media marketing efforts on Facebook and correctly identifies:

a) quality and
b) engagement

as key content variables that do make a difference in remaining visible online.


He writes: "...if you’re just tweeting links, you’re missing out.


Why?


Because:

  • Your content is short-lived (the lifetime of a tweet is in minutes; a few hours at best).
  • You have no or limited opportunity to provide context.
  • You drive your audience away from you; not to your own site.
  • No opportunity to convert.
  • No opportunity to show related content.
  • No traffic from search.
.
Instead, if you curate your own content hub on a specific topic:
 
  • Your curated content is now archived somewhere and can be discovered and re-shared in the future 
     
  • Your curated content receives targeted traffic from search 
     
  • You can add conversion & engagement CTA’s (subscribe, contact me, request a demo, book services, etc…).


Good basic analysis and advice for content marketers.
De Cugis is right. 7/10

Très bon article du fondateur de Scoop It, qui explique pourquoi la curation sur Twitter (= "juste" partager des liens en moins de 140 caractères) ne suffit pas pour un content marketer, et pourquoi il faut créer son propre "hub de contenus".
