The More You Automate, The Less You Curate: Sense-Making Requires Manual Effort

Beth Kanter's insight:

I've been using Harold's model "Seek, Sense, Share" to explain the process of content curation to nonprofits.   He first published it back in 2011 and I actually made my New Year's resolution for professional learning (http://www.bethkanter.org/seek-sense-share/)


In 2011, I had noticed that I needed to pay more attention to training my attention and to be more intentional about how I was sharing information.   The Seek-Sense-Share framework really helped me.   When I discovered content curation, I realized that I was doing it, but from reading Robin Good's work - I wasn't doing well. 


I connected Harold's framework to content curation  -- http://www.bethkanter.org/content-curation-101/ because like everything else I learn, I am turning around and using it in training - so I thought it was perfect.


Harold has updated his model and fine-tuned it for content curation.   


Robin Good found it put into context - and related to the need for some sort of human intervention - to pick, select, and contextualize content - not just aggregate.   I always appreciate Robin's great reminders about the need to be "brains on" when comes to curation.


Curation is not clicking, not cut and paste, not mindless sharing.  You have to be disicplined about being intentional - and focus.
