Blogging as a Content Curation Hub

Blogging as a Content Curation Hub | Curation & The Future of Publishing |

I want to take a look at curation through the lens of blogging. How can educators and students use their blogs to become their own information curators and content curators for others in their learning community.

Guillaume Decugis's insight:

While some consider social networks to be an interesting place to start some light curation work, the curation process involves more than just sharing links. Which is why to make the content you filtered, selected and shared more impacting, you need a content curation hub

This is an interesting review of how your blog could have a second life being either dedicated to or enriched with great curated content.

Curar contenido es más que simplemente buscar y seleccionar información.

What kind of digital curator are you?

This is an interesting workshop presentation given at #converge11 by Joyce Seitzinger. It has a focus on curation in EduTech but is generic as well in a lot of aspects.


In particular, I love the distinction she makes from slide 22 onward between all types of "curators": a fun way of showing what curation best practices should be all about.

I've been exploring the idea of 'the social media classroom' and how I view teachers with an emerging role as curators, but also teaching student the skills of curation so they can get the right resources in an age of ubiquitous information. I'll have to keep in touch.

Nice one thanks for this. I have been following your Scoops. You can also set up and share your scoops on Internet Billboards, it's very easy to set up and do and there is no extra effort just a couple clicks. Like this Also do you have a blog? Just curious.

Teaching Kids to Curate Content Collections

Teaching Kids to Curate Content Collections | Curation & The Future of Publishing |
While there are a ton of essential skills that today's students need in order to succeed in tomorrow's world, learning to efficiently manage -- and to evaluate the reliability of -- the information that they stumble across online HAS to land somewhere near the top of the "Muy Importante" list.
Guillaume Decugis's insight:

Interesting example of using Content Curation to teach digital native students how to cope with the vast amount of information they get exposed to. 

Teacher Bill Ferriter had them go through a very concrete topic: the recent decision of New York City "to ban the sale of sugary drinks in containers larger than 16 ounces".

Good decision? Bad decision? Biased information? I found this experiment really interesting and the result looks pretty impressive.

I see this helping to create a PLN Personal Learning Network

This educator describes how can be the tool by which you teach students to gather, manage, and evaluate information. I 100% agree with his caveat at the bottom that doesn't do the teaching but because it is so simple and seamless and allows for so much interaction and feedback between student curator and instructor, it is the perfect medium for it.
