Curation as Digital Literacy Practice

Curation as Digital Literacy Practice | technology and leadership |

Ibrar Bhatt writes: "Digital curation therefore is not just about finding relevant material, although that is a significant part of it, but is also about creating a specific and unique experience by utilising the resulting materials which then become contextualised within a new space. A curator, therefore, whether she is a journalist-by-proxy such as Popova or a student completing an assignment in a classroom, not only collects and interprets, but also creates a new experience with it. In this respect, curation is a process of problem solving, re-assembling,re-creating, and stewardship of other people’s writing."

Tom Cockburn's insight:

Hmm,maybe but  random or serendipitous curation can also be misleading at times,especially for the inexperienced scholar

This would create an interesting twist or option to the practice of assigning an essay as completion of a unit or topic of study.

More on curation. Creating new content from old. When should you blog about it, and when should you tweet?

Startups Can Jump The Class
If you are new to content marketing understanding how content marketing's four gears create a "virtual cycle" can help you jump the class. Content marketing's gears:

* Curation.
* Creation.
* Social.

* Ecommerce.

Clean Slate content marketers, thos so new to the game they have few preconceived ideas, can move to the head of the class by organizing their marketing differently and in alignment with ideas shared in Content Marketing's Gears.

looks useful stuff to test in practice

Marco Gabrielli's curator insight, September 15, 2013 6:21 AM

"Curation is LISTENING. Curation is listening with intent. When, like Robin Good, you curate an important pool of information such as "cool new social media and Internet marketing tools" followers can spend LESS time worrying about finding new cool tools themselves. We learn where to go WHEN we need certain kinds of information."



 -- But curation is also a Great WORK, which allows us to understand the economics of information on the web. :-)
