Valuable insights to all librarians!

Beryl Morris's curator insight, April 3, 2013 9:05 AM

Convinced of the need to be a conent curator in my school - looking for the best way to start this, how to implement a manageable plan and ways to increase my content curation competency.

 

Lucy Wyatt's curator insight, October 7, 2013 12:44 PM

With students accessing different kinds of material and the same material in different ways, the OPAC and vertical file may not be the best way to lead your students to the best content.  This article shows differing ways of attacking the problem.

Auto-Curate Your Twitter Stream: Twylah Showcases Your Best Content "In Context"

Auto-Curate Your Twitter Stream: Twylah Showcases Your Best Content "In Context" | Uppdrag : Skolbibliotek | Scoop.it
Intressant verktyg för att samlaTwitter nyheter. Robin Good: Twylah is a web service which "auto-curates" your Twitter stream by generating a full web site which auto-organizes and visualizes your tweeted content around a set of specific topics.

 

Here is a real-world example of my own tweet-stream "auto-curated" by Twilah: http://www.twylah.com/robingood 

Impressive. Key Features:

 

- Harnesses the SEO power of all your tweets by grouping them into relevant topics

 

- Creates a more engaging space for your followers and fans 

 

- Provides a high-value content platform on auto-pilot for any author

 

- Facilitates subscriptions to your Twitter channel

 

- Integrates a PowerTweet function which not only allows to Tweet from any web page, but it "auto-creates" a  thematic web page just-in-time around your very tweet topic.

 

(Now that Twylah has kicked out a few bugs that were preventing Scoop.it based curators like me to extract the best from this new service, I am very impressed by what I see.)


This is one of the best examples of how much MORE value can be extracted by "curating", organizing and "presenting" appropriately what IS ALREADY out there. 

 

Check some of Twylah "featured" pages here: http://www.twylah.com/featured 

 

If you want to drive engagement beyond the single tweet, and show others what you cover and are all about, at-a-glance, I am hard-pressed in finding something better than Twylah.


If you use Twitter and you share lots of valuable news across different topics, I strongly suggest you request an invite to Twylah right now: http://www.twylah.com/

Wow Robin - really cool and I appreciate you exposing twylah to me! I've already applied. Should be a great way to engage people. Are you somehow now sending people to twylah instead of your twitter home page?
Robin Good's comment, January 14, 2012 8:48 AM
Hey Mitch, first my compliments to your great channel. Great stuff!

Yeah, Twylah looks good. I'm glad you have applied, with your content it is going to be great as well.

If you tweet with the Twylah "Power Tweet" function your readers are automatically taken to your Twylah property, but otherwise yes, I am going to see what are all of the best ways to take them there.
planetMitch's comment, January 14, 2012 9:16 AM
Thanks Robin, I'm impressed by your channel as well, your success is one of the main reasons why I've ended up loving scoop.it and am now a 'business' user and have integrated it into my own domain now.

I've been doing 'curation' with my blog for 3 years, but now scoop.it has helped me solve a problem that I haven't been able to deal with - and that is a way to share news that doesn't 'qualify' for me to spend time writing a full blog post about.

The 'power tweet' is a brilliant idea and one I can see using a lot - maybe too much.

I might like to see twylah expand to do one thing scoop does well - and that's to let me post the power tweet to facebook, g+ etc.

Thanks again for exposing me to so many great ideas!

School Library Monthly - Curation- Joyce Valenza

Librarians are uniquely qualified to curate. School librarians are perhaps most ripe for this function, because they understand the curriculum and the specific needs and interests of their own communities of teachers, administrators, learners, and parents

Curating Information & Making Sense of Data Is a Key Skill for the Future [Research]

Curating Information & Making Sense of Data Is a Key Skill for the Future [Research] | Uppdrag : Skolbibliotek | Scoop.it

Robin Good: The Institute for the Future and the University of Phoenix have teamed up to produce, this past spring, an interesting report entitled Future Work Skills 2020.

 

By looking at the set of emerging skills that this research identifies as vital for future workers, I can't avoid but recognize the very skillset needed by any professional curator or newsmaster.

 

It should only come as a limited surprise to realize that in an information economy, the most valuable skills are those that can harness that primary resource, "information", in new, and immediately useful ways.

 

And being the nature of information like water, which can adapt and flow depending on context, the task of the curator is one of seeing beyond the water,

to the unique rare fish swimming through it.

 

The curator's key talent being the one of recognizing that depending on who you are fishing for, the kind of fish you and other curators could see within the same water pool, may be very different. 

 

 

Here the skills that information-fishermen of the future will need the most:

 

1) Sense-making:

ability to determine the deeper meaning or significance of what is being expressed

 

2) Social intelligence:

ability to connect to others in a deep and direct way, to sense and stimulate reactions and desired interactions

 

3) Novel and adaptive thinking:

proficiency at thinking and coming up with solutions and responses beyond that which is rote or rule-based

 

4) Cross-cultural competency:

ability to operate in different cultural settings

 

5) Computational thinking:

ability to translate vast amounts of data into abstract concepts and to understand data-based reasoning

 

6) New media literacy:

ability to critically assess and develop content that uses new media forms, and to leverage these media for persuasive communication

 

7) Transdisciplinarity:

literacy in and ability to understand concepts across multiple disciplines

 

8) Design mindset:

ability to represent and develop tasks and work processes for desired outcomes

 

9) Cognitive load management:

ability to discriminate and filter information for importance, and to understand how to maximize cognitive functioning using a variety of tools and techniques

 

10) Virtual collaboration:

ability to work productively, drive engagement, and demonstrate presence as a member of a virtual team

 

 

Critical to understand the future ahead. 9/10

Thanks for sharing this from Robin's stream. These skills sets could form the basis of a self-assessment for would-be curators, although they're more conceptual - than practical/tactical. Thanks for sharing and must go rescoop it with a credit you and Robin of course
