Take Note: How to Curate Learning Digitally

Take Note: How to Curate Learning Digitally | web learning | Scoop.it
In an age when simple facts can be Googled and students create with a combination of analog and digital tools, they need to think about note taking as an opportunity to curate and synthesize information so that they can make conclusions, build deeper understanding, and construct new knowledge. Whether students choose to handwrite, sketch, or type their notes, the challenge lies not in choosing, but in creating a system that allows them to ultimately curate, synthesize, and reflect on what they learn.

Curation implies more than just collecting resources into a folder or notebook. It assumes a level of thoughtfulness as the curator considers the value that each artifact possesses within the context of the overall experience.

Students may choose to work on paper as well as digitally, taking photos to merge the two together. However, without careful consideration of curation, synthesis, and reflection, they may confuse the process rather than enhance it. Regardless of whether students prefer to initially take notes in physical or digital media, they need an opportunity to organize their work and connect ideas across the curriculum. At that point, the process shifts from simply transcribing notes to archiving learning. What are your thoughts about and experiences with digital curation?

How To Improve Your Content Curation By Finding Better Sources

How To Improve Your Content Curation By Finding Better Sources | web learning | Scoop.it

Excerpted from the original article: "So what is the secret sauce that makes people like Guy Kawasaki, Robert Scoble, or Mari Smith popular while most everyone else remains hidden?


In a word: Sources


In order to do this yourself, remember that you have to go beyond sharing the articles that land in your favorite RSS feeds, or just reposting something from your social media timeline (which honestly has probably been reposted a thousand times before).


To make your social curation easier, and more effective, here are a few things you might want to do:


a) Do a competitor check. It’s important to know what’s already out there


b) What do your competitors post? How or when do they post? What are their usual sources?


c) Study your competitor’s social media behavior meticulously. It’ll take time, yes, but once you’ve established where you stand, you can start looking for the best places to gather curated information without fear of repeating what others have already shared.


d) See what’s out there. Now that you know how your competitors work, you can begin creating your curation strategy, collecting the tools you need and compiling sources you can use to collate content. How many blog posts, videos and news articles are posted about your chosen topic everyday? Does your field have enough sources to sustain you, as far as your plan goes?


e) Is this what your audience really wants? This truly is the most important question you need to answer. You need to see what your audiences actually post online.


f) Create a market study on their digital behavior. You can check for yourself how audiences react towards your competitor’s social media efforts or use social media monitoring software to help you out."


The above is a summary of an excellent curation methodology created by the content curation platform Curata - How to Have an Effective Strategy for Curation

Curating great content is not about passing around what everyone else is, it's about finding sources of great content and sharing that content with your audience. It takes work to find this content and to cultivate the right sources of information. You must understsnd what your audience is hungry for so you can provide content that will get results.
