Dismiss ye olde newspapers if you will, but curation is one of the world's most undervalued commodities

Dismiss ye olde newspapers if you will, but curation is one of the world's most undervalued commodities | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it
I have rehearsed this scenario before, but try to imagine we live in a world where printed media had not been invented, and our only source of information and entertainment was the Internet.

 

And then someone came up with a really smart idea, and gathered together a group of really clever people, got them to sift through the mass of information that's freely available in digital form, decide what's important and what's not, what you can trust and what you can't, and put it all together in a thing called a newspaper, which can be delivered to your very home.

 

 

It's portable, it's not dependent on a wireless connection and, for many, there is also an intrinsic pleasure in turning over the pages. I posit this idea not to promote the virtue of newspapers, but to illustrate my growing feeling that one of the most prized - and undervalued - commodities in the modern world is curation.

4 Twitter Tools Every Teacher should Know about

4 Twitter Tools Every Teacher should Know about | Social Media and its influence | Scoop.it

Twitter is a powerful educational social networking website that has a huge potential for  teachers professional development.

 

Twitter is also ideal as a  PLN  where you get to connect with other educators from all around the globe and exchange teaching and learning materials with them. Building a PLN, however, requires making acquaintances with similar like-minded teachers and also developing your list of followers; but once you have such a solid PLN problems of maintaining it and staying updated with what others tweet become a tricky challenge.

 

I have curated for you some powerful tools to help you benefit the maximum from  the PLN you create on Twitter. Check them out below.

I am very aware of the fact that I am using a digital curation site to highlight external resources about images and Copyright and therefore it seems sensible to highlight some of the pitfalls of this approach.  I note that the Scoop.it example does not come out of this too well!

As a Pew study highlights a growing trend of readers who gather news through curation, brands are also finding that links to content help build a customer base.

 

"What that does is it turns your organization into the trusted guide for this stuff," Holtz says. "
