Beth Kanter Interviews Robin Good - Insights & Tips On Curation For Non- Profits [Video]

Beth Kanter interviewed Robin Good a few days ago, for the entire interview with Beth and Robin please click here: []


Robin, I really enjoyed listening to you, I know this is aimed at non-profits but your insights, tips and suggestions are something we can all use. 


Here are a few things that caught my attention:


**BEFORE you get on the web, decide how much time you're going to spend on there, otherwise it could become addictive, and this can happen if you're not careful (hmmm how many of you can relate to this?) 


**Know who your audience is, pick a very specific topic,


**be as narrow as you can, find great pieces, pull out what you think would be relevant for them (being too broad doesn't help filter out the noise for these people, it adds to it)


I'm going to let you get right to the interview and let Robin tell you more:-)

Jan - thanks for scooping this. I learned a lot from this interview. I also transcribed it and have included what I think of some of Robin's "classic" curation resources!

Beth Kanter on Content Curation: Listening and Engaging

Beth Kanter on Content Curation: Listening and Engaging | Beth Kanter |

Content curation is the organizing, filtering and “making sense of” information on the web and sharing the very best pieces of content that you’ve cherry picked with your network.

But finding and organizing the information is only half of the task. As Mari Smith points out in this video about why curation is important and some tools for doing it.

By sharing the information and giving credit to the source where you found the link, you build relationships and a network. I used to describe this process as “Listening and Engaging” but really like focusing it the process around a content strategy – makes listening and engaging much more actionable.

Good Curation VS Bad Curation Beth Kanter

Good Curation VS Bad Curation Beth Kanter | Beth Kanter |

This is more than an infographic.  The article talks about Robin's Good's feelings about the new trend of curation.  



What is good curation versus bad curation?  The image is a remix of a presentation entitled ”Link Building by Imitation” and authored by link building expert Ross Hudgens — and explains the skill set pretty well.

A Content Curation Primer by Beth Kanter

A Content Curation Primer by Beth Kanter | Beth Kanter |

Beth Kanter celebrates my birthday by publishing this informative and well curated article for new content curators.

Beth summarizes key principles, her own suggested approach and some of the tools she recommends to use.


An enjoyable and informative read. Recommended.

P.S.: The link "explosion of tools" should realy link somewhere else in my humble opinion. Here is an updated map of all the content curation and newsmastering tools out there: ;

Thanks Robin for scooping this post. It took me a long time to really synthesize what I learned from the accumulated links. I'm working on this because I have to teaching an introductory workshop on content curation - and how it is useful for professional learning in ADDITION to an organization's content strategy. The big barrier is the sense of "being content fried" - a new word for information overload.

Good luck to you!

The Key Benefits of Content Curation by Beth Kanter: Presentation + Curated Tweets

Robin Good: Here is the official presentation that Beth Kanter delivered yesterday, accompanied by a curated bundle of user contributions (mostly tweets) and relevant resources (stats, some visuals and other resources) outlining the key benefits that content curation can bring.


To do so, she used which allowed her to pull in the most relevant and interesting tweets that had been posted during her webinar, as well as other relevant resources on the topics she covered.


My three picks from this Storify bundle:


- Mindless sharing is not content curation (Dara Goldberg)


- RT @ntenorg: Good content curators don't just share or collect links, they explain & make sense of a particular topic for others. (Steve Heye)


- ...@hjarche Seek-Sense-Share (PKM) model, he offers an online workshop

Robin thanks so much for highlighting the storify summary - I did that right after the session because I wanted to do a quick content analysis of the tweets and see what resonated. I also did the same for the chat logs so I could gather up the questions and make sure they were answered. The session was based on an article I wrote recently on why content curation - real content curation as you describe it - can benefit nonprofits. How it can enhance staff expertise and reduce information overload. Here's a blog post that wrote sharing some of the other resources, including many of yours.
