Drucker’s Knowledge Worker in the Age of Social Media: Content Curation for Professional Development

Drucker’s Knowledge Worker in the Age of Social Media: Content Curation for Professional Development | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

"Over half a century ago, management guru Peter Drucker presented the concept of the knowledge worker. Compared to the manual laborer, the knowledge worker focused on quality over quantity and worked more independently as problem solvers."

 

Over the many applications of Social Content Curation, Professional Development has been a strong trend. We keep observing it on Scoop.it but it's also been reported by Social Media influencers.

 

As more and more of us become Knowledge Worker, it should be no suprise that Content takes a growing importance on our Professional lives. So here's our take on it and why we announced this new integration with LinkedIn earlier today.

Stevie brings MTV-style social video curation to the iPad | GigaOM

Stevie brings MTV-style social video curation to the iPad | GigaOM | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"Plenty of people are trying really hard to make online video more like TV. Israel-based web video curation startup Stevie is a little more specific about its goal: It wants online video to look like a hit show on MTV, back when MTV was still groundbreaking. 

 

The app, which just became available in the App Store this weekend, features more or less the same UI and functionality as Stevie’s web application: a continuous stream of short online videos consisting of things your contacts share on Facebook and Twitter as well as popular clips shared by a number of celebrities, divided into small programming units.

 

There’s a “show” for personalized content, one for funny stuff, one for music videos and one for celebrity clips. And in case you get bored, Stevie also displays Facebook birthdays, the latest tweets and status updates of your contacts, and a whole bunch of other information in a sidebar and two scrolling tickers..."

A useful addition to the digital curator's toolkit.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, November 3, 2013 6:24 AM

When you Mummify a webpage—a news article, blog post, photo or tweet, for example— we make a permanent copy and back it up in the cloud. We then give you a new URL that looks like this: http://mummify.it/2452862


Mummify is free up to 100 mummies a month. If you need to Mummify more than 100 pages in a given month you can purchase 50 more for $5.

Curation: Manage Your Attention Not Just Your Time

Curation: Manage Your Attention Not Just Your Time | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

This guest post is by Beth Kanter for Socialbrite and this is great for curators just starting out or a refresher for those of you who have been doing this for a while.

 

She tells you why curation is an important tool in your content strategy and gives you some good suggestions on how to do it effectively which I'm going to focus on here. Curation requires time and energy, and Beth's process really works because I'm doing this myself.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

Manage you attention, not just your time

 

**Don't just create a to-do list; lay it out on a daily and weekly schedules, breaking down key tasks of the project into chunks.

 

**Consider the level of concentration and focus that each type of task or chunk requires and schedule accordingly

 

**Establish rituals: Rituals in your work life are valuable. A mindmap offers a lot of good suggestions for rituals

 

**Managing email and other distractions: Turn off notifications that pop up on your computer, iPad or moble.

 

**Just say no - it's important to engage with your community on social networks but you have to find the right balance. When you're curating, it requires focus, it's best to schedule this first, then do your community management, check your email unless something requires your immediate attention. When you have a plan, it makes everything easier.

On her blog, Nancy White did a great job detailing the various levels at which Curation adds value. And how it differs from collecting.

 

A Learning & Innovation specialist, she also greatly outlines how curation and education are a great fit.
