Fair Use and Curation - Five Rules to Curate by

Fair Use and Curation - Five Rules to Curate by | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

By Pawan Deshpande "Recently, Kimberley Isbell of the Nieman Journalism Lab cited a Harvard Law report and published an extensive post on news aggregation and legal considerations. From a curation perspective, the whole article is interesting, but what was the most surprising was that her recommendations for being an ethical content aggregator, were the same as being an effective content curator."

The author makes a strong case for his assertion that ethical content aggregation and effective content curation are synonymous. Deshpande's "5 Rules to being an Ethical Content Curator" are a solid start on a list of best practices for curation.

Six Key Content Curation Insights Emerging from the Leaked NY Times Executive Summary

Six Key Content Curation Insights Emerging from the Leaked NY Times Executive Summary | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
It's an astonishing look inside the cultural change still needed in the shift to digital — even in one of the world's greatest newsrooms. Read it.

Robin Good's curator insight, May 21, 2014 4:53 AM

The leaked New York Times memo of less than a week ago is making the round on the Internet, as it touches upon many of the key issues and opportunities any news journalism operation is facing today.

From my personal viewpoint the most interesting aspect of this lengthy 97-page memo is how much curation, news and content curation specifically, are part of the future view being described in it.

Since, even trying read the in-depth curated version of the leaked NY report done by the excellent Nieman Lab it may take you in excess of 30 minutes, I have extracted and highlighted here below only the points that are specifically relevant to curators and to anyone researching the future of content curation within the context of news and journalism.

Here, six key points to pay strong attention to:

  1. ...resurfacing archival content. The report cites this passage: "“We can be both a daily newsletter and a library — offering news every day, as well as providing context, relevance and timeless works of journalism.” 

  2. ...restructuring arts and culture stories that remain relevant long after they are initially published into guides for readers.

  3.  ...consider tools to make it easier for journalists, and maybe even readers, to create collections and repackage the content.

  4.  allow readers to easily follow certain topics or columnists.

  5. better tagging of the info and content being published.

  6. focus on the less glamorous work of creating tools, templates and permanent fixes that cumulatively can have a bigger impact by saving our digital journalists time and elevating the whole report.

Why Learning Through Social Networks Is The Future

Why Learning Through Social Networks Is The Future | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Students Need Professional Learning Networks, Too

Learning to create, manage and promote a professional learning network (PLN) will soon become, if it’s not already, one of the most necessary and sought after skills for a global citizen, and as such, must become a prominent feature of any school curriculum.

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, July 8, 2014 1:27 AM

Collaboration can be both a formal structure for learning activity but also an underpinning framework for engagement and fostering life-long learning.  Learning networks are part the new learning ecosystem and should be recognised and supported.

Educators as Curators: 8 Steps to Bringing Your Students the Best of the Web

Educators as Curators: 8 Steps to Bringing Your Students the Best of the Web | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

Posted on July 23, 2012 by Jennifer Funk

Last spring, Dr. Corinne Weisgerber turned her undergrads into Guggenheim-like curators. After building personal learning networks that delivered subject-specific tweets and blog posts, her students chose the most salient content and arranged it online the way a museum curator might an art exhibit. Their goal was to design a learning experience that cut through the noise to bring the Internet’s best content to others.


The project arose from Weisgerber’s own experience curating content for students, which she and her St. Edward’s University colleague Dr. Shannan Butler shared at the second annual SXSWedu conference in March.


Today, they answer questions about why they think the museum curator is the perfect model for today’s educators (and students), and how you can become one too.

The Importance of Content Curation for Digital Citizenship and How To Use Pearltrees in Teaching Environments

Robin Good's curator insight, April 26, 2014 2:04 PM

Content curation can be of help to teachers and educators interested in guiding students in learning and appreciating the importance of active digital citizenship.

Jane Schmude, an Australian education graduate and a passionate teacher-librarian, outlines the reasons for such importance while providing also a good 5-minute visual introduction to Pearltrees as an ideal curation tool to carry out this type of project.

Useful intro for teachers, educators and librarians interested to learn more about the opportunities offered by curation.

Pragmatical. 7/10

Collaborative Curation and Personalization The Future of Museums: A Study Report

This is right up my alley. Looking forward to reading about trends and impacts.

Erica Bilder's curator insight, November 15, 2013 7:11 AM

I have nothing to add to Robin Good's terrific insights:

 Robin Good's insight:



Picture these scenarios:

The Victoria & Albert Museum, its collections depleted by massive repatriation, becomes a travel & tourism guide and international affairs ambassador in an increasingly globalized community
 The Freud Museum, in the spirit of its namesake, becomes a provider of mental retreat and therapy (I wonder if the docents will be licensed psychoanalysis?)

These, according to the 40-page report “Museums in a Digital Age” from Arups, may actually be some of the likely new profiles of prestigious museums 25 years from now.  


The report projects that:


"...future museums will see personalised content, new levels of sustainability and a visitor experience extended beyond present expectations of time and space."


A rising desire among audiences to shape their own cultural experiences (“Collaborative Curation”)
 The opportunity for museum to become “curators of experiences” that extend beyond the boundaries of traditional exhibits or programs, or beyond the walls of the museum itself.


Source: http://futureofmuseums.blogspot.it/2013/11/museums-in-future-view-from-across-pond.html ;

 The idea of "collaborative curation" of museum collections by the actual users-visitors, is particularly fascinating.  "Just as current consumer trends shift towards collaborative consumption, in the future, museums may employ new patterns of collaborative curation,allowing for individually curated experiences and giving the public greater control over both content and experience.
Increased visitor participation will allow people themselves to reinvent the museum experience, enabling content that can adapt to the preferences of users in real-time." 


My comment: If you are a curator and are interested in exploring and understanding what the future of large collections and museums may look like and which forces are going to be driving such changes, this is a good report to read.


Insightful. Inspiring 8/10
