Social Content Curation: An Introductory Guide for Teachers and Students

Social Content Curation: An Introductory Guide for Teachers and Students | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

Robin Good: "7 Things You Should Know About Social Content Curation" is a technology brief from Educause which aims to introduce, explain and illustrate the emerging social curation trend and why it is relevant to teaching and learning.

 

From the official abstract: "An emerging class of online tools, including Pinterest, Scoop.it, EduClipper, and others, allows users to quickly and easily gather, organize, and share collections of online resources, particularly visual content.


These applications make it easy to collect and post disparate bits of content, providing visual groupings at a glance that can reveal important patterns.


In academic settings, they can facilitate more visual thinking and discussion among students while providing a means to share collections of online content."



Informative. Good introductory text. 7/10

17 Tips To Help You Become Better At Content Curation

17 Tips To Help You Become Better At Content Curation | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article: 

"Over the past few years I must have heard the phrase ‘everyone is a publisher nowadays’ a thousand times or more. It’s largely accurate, due to the rise of social media, but I think we are mainly ‘curators’, as opposed to ‘publishers’.

 

Content curation is something that many of us will be familiar with, even if we don’t think of ourselves as curators. We instinctively find and share interesting content with our personal and professional networks. We follow others who share the kind of links that engage and entertain.

 

Here are my 17 tips to help you become even better at content curation, with one eye on Twitter:

 

1) Set up some feeds

2) Make the most of email alerts

3) Get to grips with Twitter Search

4) Use advanced search queries

5) Follow the 70/30 rule

6) Find the right tools for the job

7) Own a niche

8) Read, read, read!

9) Write, write, write!

10) Timing is crucial

11) Aggregate the good stuff

12) Tune in to the right people

13) Mix up your tweets

14) Don't be afraid of the detail

15) Consider repeating yourself

16) Try to avoid the obvious

17) Use a notebook

 

Each tips is analyzed with some details. Read full article here: http://j.mp/K8AVt4

How Content Curators Are Connecting Online "Communities of Interest"

How Content Curators Are Connecting Online "Communities of Interest" | The Information Professional | Scoop.it

Content curation is becoming mainstream and the Guardian picked up the trend in this interesting high-level article that Giuseppe Mauriello suggested to me.

 

"Technology is creating new opportunities to socially interact and is also enabling end users to become their own content curator..."

 

But the article also describes how curation and topics are tightly connected. And also touches on the role of brands as curators, describing the business opportunity: "Communities of interest are tremendously powerful but you've got to have a reason to talk to them. Brands must create something of value for the user to earn that user's attention."
