Why content curation is a new form of communication

These are the slides of a talk Guillaume Decugis (Scoop.it) gave at the University of San Francisco on Sept. 17, 2013.

In a post Web 2.0 world, communication has to be re-invented which brings a huge opportunity to individuals, organizations or brands: content curation. 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.

Knowing the Difference Between Digital Skills and Digital Literacies, and Teaching Both

Knowing the Difference Between Digital Skills and Digital Literacies, and Teaching Both | Student Success | Scoop.it
Digital literacies are not solely about technical proficiency but about the issues, norms, and habits of mind surrounding technologies used for a particular purpose.

—Doug Belshaw, educational researcher


We often hear people talk about the importance of digital knowledge for 21st-century learners. Unfortunately, many focus on skills rather than literacies. Digital skills focus on what and how. Digital literacy focuses on why, when, who, and for whom.
