Pierre Lévy on Collective Intelligence Literacy

Linda Nitsche's insight:

Collective Intelligence requires that you become a citizen of the knowledge society. You collect and filter knowledge for yourself, but also for others.

Curation Is As Important as Creation

Curation Is As Important as Creation | Tools for Curation | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are interested in understanding how "content curation" differentiates itself from simple re-sharing and re-blogging here is a great article by Chris DeLine.

 

Great advice for anyone wanting to become an effective content curator: “Whether in tweets, in blog posts, in podcasts, or in newsletters, be ruthless with your attention.

Humanrithm: why data without people is not enough

Slides of talk at DataWeek 2012 by Guillaume Decugis, Co-Founder & CEO of Scoop.it.
From introduction of presentation:
"We engineers love data and algorithms. They help create amazing things. But if and when we forget that people create data and that data can be improved by people, we will miss the promise of Big Data. It's time we all thought of this not as social vs algorithm but as humanrithm."
"Curation starts when Saerch stops working" - Clay Shirky

7 Things You Should Know About Social Content Curation | EDUCAUSE

7 Things You Should Know About Social Content Curation | EDUCAUSE | Tools for Curation | Scoop.it

"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.

The 7 Things You Should Know About... series from the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative (ELI) provides concise information on emerging learning technologies. Each brief focuses on a single technology and describes what it is, where it is going, and why it matters to teaching and learning. Use these briefs for a no-jargon, quick overview of a topic and share them with time-pressed colleagues."

Paula Silva's curator insight, December 15, 2012 1:40 PM

An interesting example of using tools for educational purposes. Scoop.it can be used to:

1- teach kids to search;  2- manage information, evaluate sources and build collections and 3- allow kids to publish content on topics that are  part of the curriculum.
