Why content curation is a new form of communication

While the history of communication until the end of the previous century has only been focusing on enlarging the distribution to a few published or broadcasted content creators, we now live in information overload where content curators can be the new super heroes.

Integration of Information Literacy into the Curriculum: Changing Students’ Relationships with the School Librarian

Motivated by a shared inquiry question, a team of librarians at Deerfield High School (Illinois) gathered data to support a push to integrate information literacy skills into the curriculum, and developed a fruitful collaboration with other departments resulting in a co-taught Medieval narrative project. Among other important outcomes: a change in student perceptions about the role of school librarians.

The tools section is pretty lame - weird categories. Obviously, they didn't review the experts, like Robin Good, and refer to his work.

Content curation is key to build a community and maintain brand awareness. This short infographic presents the major tools and how to use them.

Assessing Information Literacy Skills with TRAILS and ResearchReady | EasyBib Blog

Assessing Information Literacy Skills with TRAILS and ResearchReady | EasyBib Blog | Sharing Information literacy ideas | Scoop.it

Traditionally, educators have assessed their students’ information literacy skills through reading their papers and grading their research projects. But as more educators are seeing the benefits of formative assessmentand there is less time to assign research projects, many educators are turning to other means of evaluating the research skills students need to succeed.

Many educators have found that TRAILS is a great way to assess student understanding of important research skills. TRAILS is a freely available assessment platform created by Kent State University Libraries. These assessments are aligned with both Common Core State Standards and American Association of School Librarians’ Standards for the 21st-Century Learner. The assessment content covers research skills for students in grades 3, 6, 9 and 12.

My experience withTRAILS was outstanding.  The results of the assessments helped to drive curriculum development to target areas of student response.  The assessment improved our team approach to research skill development and solidified awareness of key components for ethical and productive strategies.

The first part of the article is a story from the business world, but after that the information is very relevant for education and also for PR in education.  I will read this again to think about when I have to do a presentation for my library.

Terry Yelmene's curator insight, August 16, 2015 11:50 AM

A pretty well-reasoned, fundamental thought process for most knowledge work research.  This serves as an even better backward (there-to-here) model to guide the core research workflow process automation  a knowledge worker may want to devise, install.  Think work product-informed -> DevonThink structures -> DevonAgent w/'Active Filtered' automated searches.  The most important drivers here are - 'ethical' - (more than just multiple sources, a stage needs to be added at the work product stage to provide authenticity) and - 'bias' -  (a post automated search,  subsequent manual search for corroborating items selection to provide authority).

Anu Ojaranta's curator insight, September 4, 2013 3:02 AM

"Content curation not only involves finding relevant and valuable information, but also filtering out unnecessary, inappropriate and inaccurate sources. It combines creativity with analytical skills, can be easily applied in a collaborative context, and also provides an opportunity for peer assessment and feedback as individuals or groups can also rate or evaluate the resources chosen by others."

Nevermore Sithole's curator insight, October 14, 2013 12:24 PM

Article argues that curation is not a new concept for libraries since Librarians select, organise and preserve information. Further, the article argues that content curation involves higher order skills and the ability to appraise sources effectively in order to sieve through large volumes of information. Above all, the article discussess the concepts, aggregation, distillation, elevation, mash-ups and chronology.

Robin Good's curator insight, October 2, 2013 8:13 AM



If you are into understanding the real value of content curation and what are the characterizing traist that make it so valuable and unique for the future of journalism and of our collective ability to stay informed, here is an evergreen "classic" on what curation specifically entails, synthesized and outlined by the Mindy McAdams.


When it comes to content curation, her list includes seven specific characterizing traits:


  1. Selection of the best representatives
  2. Culling
  3. Provide context
  4. Arrangement of individual objects
  5. Organization of the whole
  6. Expertise
  7. Updating


Her content curation identikit is as useful, truthful and relevant today as it was was 5 years ago when it was first published.



Content curation reference. Must-read. 9/10

Question to you: Five years on, today, what would you add to these traits, that in your view, fully characterizes content curation?

I love the way examining curating from the perspective of other disciplines adds such richness to our definition and understanding of what it is, and what we are trying to accomplish with the act of curating.
