15 Photography Sites to Boost Your Skills - Lifehack | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it
Are you tired of taking taking trashy photos? Have you been trying so hard to capture images like a pro just by using your own digital camera? Do you want to learn appropriate photo angles and take the most beautiful shots with your digital camera or your new GoPro? Well, it’s possible!

Taking photos like a professional is one of the most trending hobbies around. Now-a-days, “selfies” and “groufies” are all the rage on social media sites. People want to share their day-to-day experiences with the world. We can share our most memorable events with a simple click of a button. It is so easy to upload your photos online. It’s fun to show off our personal photos, especially beautiful places with the best scenic views.

Because of this ease to share such beauty, photography is one of the most joyful hobbies anyone can do in their lifetime. By sharing photos we also share precious memories. That’s why people want to take the best photos they can. We all want our photos to look professional. Well, now-a-days this is easier than you may think.

12 Of The Biggest Content Curation Myths (Busted)

12 Of The Biggest Content Curation Myths (Busted) | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

There is a lot of misunderstanding about content curation. Many see it as a pale copy of aggregation, others as an unethical practice. 


Here is a very interesting article by Julia McCoy that will, hopefully, put an end to all the myths out there, including:


- content curation as a fully automated process.

- content curation as a copy-and-paste process.

- content curation as a random process


As a big proponent of content curation, I see this post as another brick to add to the positive conversational wall! Read it at http://www.business2community.com/content-marketing/12-biggest-content-curation-myths-busted-01089590

Today a summit starts in Quito, Ecuador that will discuss ways in which the country can transform itself into an open commons-based knowledge society. The team that put together the proposals is led by Michel Bauwens from the Foundation for Peer-to-Peer Alternatives. What is the background to this plan, and how likely is it that it will bear fruit?  With the hope of finding out I spoke recently to Bauwens.

donhornsby's curator insight, December 28, 8:12 AM

(From the article): In conclusion, here's how to optimize pages like a pro: Look at your most visited pages, figure out why users are there, give them what they want, and ask them for an action in return. Regardless of your most-visited pages or even the nature of your website, you can create more engaged users.

You’re in the business of not just dissemination information, but demanding a response. The knowledge you impart requires that users response. Ask for it.

NMC On the Horizon > Increasing Focus on Open Content | The New Media Consortium

NMC On the Horizon > Increasing Focus on Open Content | The New Media Consortium | SteveB's Social Learning Scoop | Scoop.it

The movement toward open content reflects a change in the way educators and scholars are conceptualizing education. Information is everywhere now; the challenge is to make effective use of it. Often mistaken to simply mean “free of charge,” advocates of openness have worked toward defining “open” more broadly — not just free in economic terms, but also in terms of ownership and usage rights. Alternative licensing schemes such as Creative Commons have advanced this vision by providing a legal framework for people to share content freely. The goal of openness is to ensure the unimpeded distribution of valuable, scientific knowledge and to guarantee that educational materials are freely copiable, freely remixable, and free of barriers to access. Using open content also has pragmatic appeal; it offers solutions to the rising cost of education and addresses the scarcity of quality resources in remote or developing regions of the world. As more schools, universities, and other academic institutions integrate open content into curricula, there will be increased focus on processes to evaluate and validate these resources on a wide scale. Issues of intellectual property and digital citizenship are equally important to understanding the impact of this trend on teaching and learning.
