This is a google spreadsheet put together for a workshop. Using a crowd-sourced document to gather these insights is a fantastic idea as there is still not a lot of research on these ideas. Now the resource lives on 6 months after the workshop. By the way, I found it because I was googling to see if anyone had concerns that curation is 'spoonfeeding' students.... it seems some do.

Instructional design: from "packaging" to "scaffolding"

Instructional design: from "packaging" to "scaffolding" | Social Media in Medical Education | Scoop.it

Jane Hart's Blog :In my recent posts, The changing role of L&D: from “packaging” to “scaffolding” plus “social capability building” and  Towards the Connected L&D Department I wrote about the need to move from a focus on “packaging” training to “scaffolding” learning,  and I said I would talk more about what “scaffolding” looks like. For me, this is the key way for workplace learning professionals to move the learning industry into the future. In this post I’m going to look at “instructional scaffolding” but in subsequent posts, I will consider “scaffolding performance support & team collaboration” in the workplace  as well as “scaffolding professional learning“.

What is Anonymity in Communication?

"That is, anonymity isn’t created by the communication channel; it’s created by users and similarly undermined or reduced by users. This process of social construction of the technology stymies research in online anonymity. While researchers wish to claim that online forums are anonymous simply because the users cannot be traced back to their offline selves, the users demonstrate that they are not interested in anonymity. Instead, they are interested in the possibility of multiple parts of self, some of which are revealed when interacting online. The difference between this and true anonymity is quite stark and important to recognize."

Social media and our personal identity construction

Social media and our personal identity construction | Social Media in Medical Education | Scoop.it

Using Facebook, I can very tangibly present myself as a certain kind of person. If I am thoughtful enough and approach it from a marketeers perspective, I can put up the right kind of photos, the right kind of statuses, timeline attributes and career positions to have myself be regarded in a certain way. I can produce something that is a visceral representation of my life that other people regard with real legitimacy that says to me and them, this is who I am. On some level, I believe that most people already do this, whether subconscious or not. Surely that can be more convincing as a tool for corroborating our self-imposed linear narrative structures than what we merely tell ourselves in our inner dialogues? Subversive non-linear narrative structures need not prevail.

Is social media harmful to our identity construction? Does it flood us with too many memories leading to incoherence? The blogger argues that it doesn't have to be this way. We can use Facebook as part of our identity projects.

This is an infographic about current SEO thinking with tips and tools to help sites rank better on search engines.

 

Most people have a general idea of how to optimize their content for search engines. That search engine algorithms are proprietary and evolving inevitably causes different opinions on SEO. Of course there’s another school of thought that minimal keyword research and a green-light from a SEO plugin are enough to publish a piece.

Martin (Marty) Smith's comment, May 2, 2013 12:52 PM
Great comment MizWalidah. I wold modify one point. Instead of "continually optimizing your meta keywords and tags" I would find ways to ping in fresh content such as User Generated Content from reviews or comments. Once a website I've SEOed is inside of Google's algorithm changing meta values that matter (mostly the page's title) can HURT SEO. I change titles VERY VERY carefully since the first rule of SEO is DO NO DAMAGE. The QDF (Quality Deserves Freshness) movement post Panda and Penguin LOVES it when a page pings, so I love the 1% of visitors who are willing to comment, review or otherwise contribute User Generated Content.

I DON'T play with meta nearly as much as you imply since to do so can look SPAMMY and cause real harm. The most important idea is creating content other people want to share. This is why I love GAMES and CONTESTS especially for bands. High engagement content such as Contests and Games can help with SEO and they can help create a distinct brand all bands need. Appreciate your enthusiasm, but be careful about meta (especially title) changes. Marty

Today marks a historic moment for one of Silicon Valley’s biggest and well-known companies.

If you still think that LinkedIn is only for those people searching for a job, than you really need to catch up with the rest of the world. Although this article reads a bit like a history paper, it does offer insight into a company that will only continue to increase its impact on the average worker. I especially like the comment that LinkedIn has become our own personal CRM system. If you haven't already, sign-up. . .  link to all of your key contacts. . . . engage with its online communities. . . . and use it to improve your marketing and sales activities.

Why does a twittering doctor tweet? The #ASME2012 presentation

Why does a twittering doctor tweet? The #ASME2012 presentation | Social Media in Medical Education | Scoop.it

Anne Marie Cunningham (@amcunningham) writes:

 

'"My very first tweet was made in May 2008.

preparing for a seminar on medicine and the media- thinking about health 3.0"

— AnneMarie Cunningham (@amcunningham) May 27, 2008

 

I was invited to join Twitter by a friend who works in IT. It just happens that at the time I was still at work thinking about a teaching session so my first tweet has quite a strong medical education flavour.

 

Like many people I wasn't sure what to actually make of Twitter after this and I left it for several months until I went to two medical education conferences and decided that social media could serve a purpose for me.

 

But I'm not a techno-evangelist. I believe we have to be very careful about how we use technology and to consider how it impacts on relationships.

 

If you google web 2 (a term for newer social technologies including social media) sceptic then the top result is actually about me, because I have disputed with other doctors in the past that these technologies are having any impact on our clinical practice. And I am still uncertain about this.

 

However I am certain, and have decided that I can allow myself to be evangelical, about the benefits that can be had for anyone who is at this conference and is therefore interested in improving medical education. I started becoming aware of this a short while after starting my own blog in October 2008 which is why in 2009 I gave a presentation at [the Association for the Study of Medical Educaton Annual Scientific Meeting] ASME about how social media and networks could develop and support scholarship in medical education. However, this did not lead to the expected paradigm shift in scholarly communication. So I have decided that I might need to be a little more direct with you this time. And this is why I am going to give you 10 reasons why you should be on Twitter now.'

Can Twitter open up a new space for learning, teaching and thinking?

Can Twitter open up a new space for learning, teaching and thinking? | Social Media in Medical Education | Scoop.it

"It does seem a little unconvincing to imply that using Twitter can suddely give students a great burst of critical or evaluative potential. However perhaps the value of social networks does not necessarily needs to be narrowly pedagogic. Aren't students given a better platform for academic performance where they feel a sense of security, confidence and belonging? That is what the HEA 'What Works' programme suggests. If social networks can connect students, keep students more up-to-date, and break down relational barriers, then it could free them from the confidence and anxiety issues than can impact upon performance. In other words - simply the effectiveness of using social networks to disseminate information and allow students to connect with staff and each other, might be what makes it an effective learning tool."

Finally. The relationship between patients and their Doctors can transform communications and build relationships, leading to much more transparency, innovation, education and preventive treatments. Ideally and hopefully, the realm of social media can trigger a paradigm shift wherein dostors, colleagues and patients can address causes of illnesses and mitigate them rather than treat symptoms.

Content Curation Guidelines for Where to Share | Curata Blog

Content Curation Guidelines for Where to Share | Curata Blog | Social Media in Medical Education | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article by Pawan Deshpande, CEO at Curata:
"By definition, content curation is the act of continually identifying, organizing, and sharing the best and most relevant content on a specific topic or issue online.  When evaluating which content curation tool to use, there are three primary areas of consideration:

1.The Inputs – Where does the content curation tool get information from? What type of content will this allow me to curate?  Will it help identify and recommend relevant content?

2.The Organization  – What does this tool offer in terms of organizing content once it has been identified?  What type of data models does this represent content as? In a simple chronological list, or an inter-linked structure? Does it let me annotate and editorialize the curated content?

3.The Venue – How and where can I share the content once I have decided to curate it?

In this blog post, I am primarily going to focus on the decided on a content curation tool based on the venue – the channels to which your content is curated.

- Embedded Widget.
What is it? Embedded widgets allow you to display curated content in a small pane on your existing web properties.
Pro’s: Relatively easy to implement with Javascript code or create an iframe.
Con’s: Content in widgets is almost never indexed by search engines because they are rendered in Javascript which search engines do not consider.
Who should use it? Organizations that are looking primarily to touch up their website with some fresh content may want to use a widget.

- Microsite.
What is it? A dedicated microsite or section of a website populated primarily with curated content.
Pro’s: Microsites really create a full-fledged experience with curated content as the center piece and can easily because the hub for a specific topic or issue.
Con’s: Because the curated content is not tucked away in a widget and is instead front and center, you will need to pay a lot more attention to what you curate.
Who should use it? Organizations that are looking to become an authoritative destination for a topic or issue to position themselves as a key resource or thought leader, or to drive traffic and visibility.

- Personalized Page.
What is it? A personalized page is a lightweight, single page microsite filled with curated content.
Pro’s: Easy to get up and running and are indexed by search engines. Usually free.
Con’s: Only one page is indexed by search engines.
Who should use it? Individuals or cost conscious non-profits who want to create an information resource.

- Email Newsletters.
What is it? An email newsletter or digest containing the latest curated content that is sent out on a regular interval.
Pro’s: Email newsletters are a great way to continually educate an audience on a regular basis without fail.
Con’s: Email newsletters have two drawbacks: 1. They are not indexed by search engines. 2. They are not real time.
Who should use it? Email newsletters are a great medium for curated content for curators with an existing captive audience.

- Twitter & Social Media Channels.
What is it? Posting curated content on Twitter and other social media channels such as Facebook and LinkedIn through status updates. The curated content could be links to blog articles or other web content, or curated tweets.
Pro’s: Posting curated content is different from other mediums, because it’s a very time sensitive medium.
Con’s: The drawback of sharing curated content on social media is that if you don’t have a lot of curated content on your topic, then it’s hard to get noticed. Because social media is content is so fleeting, if you are not constantly and consistently posting your curated content, then your impact will be minimal.
Who should use it? Curators who have topics with a sufficient throughput of content.  Curators with an existing or potential audience on social media channels. Curators with content that has a likelihood of being shared virally.

- Feeds.
What is it? Content that’s shared through RSS feeds or other data feeds.
Pro’s: People with RSS readers can subscribe to them – who are usually visitors who return regularly. In addition, some search engines crawl RSS feeds.
Con’s: Social media these days has in many ways taken the place of RSS feeds and provide more room for annotation. Unlike social media, it’s also difficult to annotate your content as a curator and add your own context.
Who should use it? Curators with an audience that prefers this medium.

 


So what’s the right answer? Which venue should you choose as you evaluate content curation tools?
A sound content curation strategy utilizes all of the venues and channels, but drives all visitors back to a single microsite. If you’re using a robust content curation platform then you should be able to easily syndicate your content to all channels with ease..."

well, it is a pity that two skilled professionals do not know to how to do converge assertively their differences, and result in better contents, and content curation.
