The 5 Cs to Developing Your Personal Learning Network: Consider - Consume - Converse - Create - Celebrate | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

Lisa Nielsen ("The Innovatice Educator" Blog), AUGUST 12, 2011

"In the 21st century teachers are no longer the sole imparters of information. Instead their role shifts to empowering students to learn independently in part by developing personal learning networks in areas of passions, talents, and interests. Not only are these real-world connections valuable, they enable learning to move from the preparation for life to the living of life by providing individuals with access to learners, leaders and experts around the world bringing together communities, resources and information impossible to access solely from within school walls. ..

The five Cs below will empower educators to discover how they and their students can begin building personal learning networks specific to the learner’s needs extending relevant learning connections to like-interested people around the globe."
Consider - Consume - Converse - Create - Celebrate

Welcome To The New Age Of Curation

Welcome To The New Age Of Curation | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

First scooped by http://www.scoop.it/u/janlgordon

"Simon Careless wrote this post, he is an editor, publisher, oversees the Game Developers Conference shows, Gamasutra and Game Developer magazine. He has a lot to say about the massive overload of content we're all experiencing. I like his observations and we'll be hearing more from him in the near future on this subject.

 

What really caught my attention was a comment from one of his readers, Sarah Brin:"

Simon Careless, August 22nd, 2011

comment 1:

"Curation isn’t strictly about taste-making either–a huge part of it is becoming an interlocutor, someone who facilitates a discussion around content, as opposed to presenting content with a qualitative (and subjective) evaluation. In that regard, the democratization of curatorial tools (tumblr, twitter, all the ways we share content) is really exciting! It might usher in a new era wherein culture becomes more participatory…or it might not."

 

 

... for me (Heiko Idensen) the five reasons for leaving the "Age of creation" are important & coming again to the problem of the FILTERS:
"So what’s the fix? You need a filter. And I strongly believe that while algorithmical filters work, you need people to tell you about things you wouldn’t find that way. When I look at book suggestions on Amazon, or artist radio on Last.fm, they’re logical and basically useful - but they’re not a concatenated, cool-hunted melange that reaches out and touches your heart.

Some form of this filtration has been in shape for decades, largely in print form, of course. ..."
 

"What are your thoughts about this?" (asked janlgordon)

SXSW 2012 | Signal beats Noise: Find your voice thru curation | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

Beyond the emphasis on building your Personal Brand, we believe that today, to be a leading edge professional / creative / entrepreneur / designer / innovator you need to carve out your own territory and have your say. Beyond whuffie, Klout, or other measures of influence, this is in many ways a private activity that takes place out loud and out there. But how do you find what you want to talk about? How do you discover, filter, curate, and consume stories in order to tell your own stories? This panel will look at tools, frameworks, motivations, and plenty of examples.

The evolving role of Ad Agencies -- from Creators to Curators

The evolving role of Ad Agencies -- from Creators to Curators | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

By Anushree Bhattacharyya, afaqs!, New Delhi, August 22, 2011

 

"Tim Williams, founder and managing director of Ignition Consulting Group, spoke on the urgent need to re-invent the business of advertising, and on the new role that advertising agencies need to take up in order to ensure a safe future ...

 

"The business of advertising started as agents dealing with media on behalf of advertisers. However, now, the role of the 'agent' is losing its relevance fast as the internet allows marketers to converse directly with consumers," remarked Williams.

 

According to him, interestingly, advertisers now also want to talk to media companies directly once again, sidelining the role of ad agencies. Therefore, now, media companies are setting up internal creative agencies. At the same time, production companies, too, are getting into the business of creativity by setting up their own creative solutions shops.

 

All this, in turn, has led to ad agencies getting into the business of media, as well as production. So, in the future, there will be little or no difference between all three sets of companies and all three will directly compete against each other.

 

Williams further added, "There is, however, another path for advertising agencies -- the role of curator. Ad agencies, apart from developing content, will also have to take up the job of helping advertisers to select the right ideas."

Is Curation Becoming A Proxy For ‘Social Media?’ | SiliconANGLE

Is Curation Becoming A Proxy For ‘Social Media?’ | SiliconANGLE | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

TOM FOREMSKI | MARCH 8TH

"But is curation journalism? ...

My answer has always been as follows: “If it looks like journalism, and it consistently looks like journalism, then it most probably is journalism. We don’t need journalism to be verified by others.”

People will sometimes confuse curation and social media with journalism but that’s OK, it helps educate people about how to handle information they see on the web.

I see curation as vital part of journalism but curation on its own is not journalism. Curation is one of the things that journalists can do well because they know their subject areas well. And curation provides a valuable supporting function to a reporter’s beat."

More companies are pouring marketing dollars into online content in the form of websites, blogs, Facebook pages, tweets and the like, and they’re using content strategists to orchestrate their efforts.

I know a bit about this since it’s how I made most of my living for the majority of the past two years. Only I never knew there was a new name for the job I was doing.

More journalists are taking on the responsibility of working as content strategists, and as they do, they’re sharing what they’ve learned with other writers and editors.

I’ve come across two recent articles about the subject that are worth passing on. One looks at why editors make good content strategists. The other focuses on common mistakes companies make when creating or carrying out content marketing strategies – good info should you be one of those editors hired to manage such a project.....

Collective Curation: What Is It?

Collective Curation: What Is It? | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

Last week we created a video to help people understand the concept of collective curation. The video provided great context on information overload and presented collective curation as an effective solution, but we didn't really define the concept itself. Thanks, Curtis (@inflector), and others for this feedback.

Collective curation is the act of aggregating the independent curation actions of a decentralized group of individuals. If part of that definition sounds familiar, you might also be familiar with The Wisdom of Crowds by James Surowiecki. We apply the same concepts to Crowdspoke that Surowiecki identifies as necessary for crowds to make wise decisions.

The Rise of Curated Crowdsourcing

The Rise of Curated Crowdsourcing | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

In 2006, when Jeff Howe hailed “The Rise of Crowdsourcing,” the phenomenon was unfamiliar even to his Wired audience.

 

Five years later, “crowdsourcing” is an overused buzzword and websites are swarming with free content. To restrain the masses, many of them are applying filters: it’s the rise of curated crowdsourcing.

 

Released in theatres in July, the YouTube-National Geographic documentary Life in a Day is curated crowdsourcing on a grand scale: about 1,000 clips were chosen from 80,000 submissions from 192 countries to chronicle one day on Earth.

What Reddit says about the expanding idea of journalism

What Reddit says about the expanding idea of journalism | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

By Mathew Ingram Aug. 15, 2011, 2:59pm PT

 

"Can we find clues about the future of news and journalism in the way a link-sharing site like Reddit operates? David Weinberger, co-author of the seminal Web 2.0 book The Cluetrain Manifesto, took a look at that question over the weekend and came to the conclusion that yes, we can — not that Reddit is the future of news, necessarily, but that it could be part of a potential future for media and journalism. Weinberger’s argument has some merit to it, and it’s a good reminder that the eventual replacement for what we see as the mainstream news media may look very different from what we are used to."

 

"Can we find clues about the future of news and journalism in the way a link-sharing site like Reddit operates"?

" ... sites like Reddit and Quora do very well is take advantage of the social elements of the news and media— in many cases, far better than their traditional media competitors. This is just a small part of the disruption that the media industry is undergoing, which includes the rise of collaborative tools and the explosion of non-journalistic sources via social-media platforms like Twitter ... Obviously, Reddit and its ilk aren’t a replacement for investigative journalism, or foreign reporting, or any of the other valuable things that major newspapers like the New York Times or the Washington Post provide. But they can be players in a much broader journalistic ecosystem, and they have lessons to teach traditional media players, if they want to listen."

Communicators must stay relevant in the digital era of content curation | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

By Bong R. Osorio (The Philippine Star) Updated August 22, 2011

(first scooped by: http://www.scoop.it/u/giuseppe-mauriello)

 

Businesses of every configuration are evolving at an alarming rate and the phenomenon is changing the commercial environment just as fast. The breadth of these changes affects many companies, from the emergent role of social media to the morphing nature of content and the access through which corporate and product messages are delivered.

 

Last week, the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) brought Shel Holtz, an IABC Fellow and principal of Holtz Communication + Technology, to talk about the future of the communications profession and how one can stay relevant in the digital era. Holtz’s presentation was preceded by a talk on the Philippine digital landscape delivered by Donald Patrick Lim, managing director of MRM Worldwide. Here are a dozen pick-ups from the master class.

 

1. The converging trends in the digital world.

2. Interruption marketing has become less effective.

3. Thinking like a publisher is the rule of the day.

4. Familiarity with the two dimensions of media relations in the Internet age is critical.

5. News reporters will contact a source not by phone but by Facebook.

6. The traditional press release moves to social media news release (SMNR) and engages more people.

7. It’s not information.

8. Community management is all about people and how you move them.

9. Welcome to the “good enough” video era.

10. Hiring the right communicator is key.

11. Outputs, outtakes and outcomes.

12. What’s coming?

Search Results and Quality Content is an Oxymoron

Search Results and Quality Content is an Oxymoron | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

This is a glitch in search today but someone is building a better mousetrap and we just have to live with the noise for the time being.

 

Hopefully those of us who curate are helping people find good, relevant pieces on a particluar topic as things evolve.

 

Intro:

 

Like it or not we are a search driven society. Thus this post could have easily been titled, "Content for content's sake" or "Crappy content for search engines", or "The difference between worthle.

 

 Good content takes time. Good content that we may value, may take even longer to produce and in some cases may take longer to find. Why? If the person who has authored it has not written equally for search engines as well as for their audience, and if it doesn’t possess the ”right” linkage and properties that meet Google’s search algoritham-it may fall quietly by the wayside. Thus we have more noise than signal and more of a glut of worthless, search friendly content.

Curation and the enterprise: part 2

Curation and the enterprise: part 2 | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

(original Scoope by http://www.scoop.it/u/giuseppe-mauriello)

[Note: This is a follow-up to my earlier post on Curation in the Enterprise Part 1 http://bit.ly/ppxhIf , and seeks to develop some of the themes introduced there.]

 

First, a quick recap.

Machines can filter. Only humans can curate.

When a human curates, she does three things. She selects something (or things) from a larger group. She organises those selections cohesively. And she arranges to present those things in such a way that people find it easy to engage with those things.

What I thought I’d do in this post is to look at all this a little more closely, all in the context of the social enterprise.

 

First, let’s look at selection.

The simplest and commonest form of selection in social networks is the asymmetric follow (a phrase I first heard used by James Governor). You follow someone or something, you subscribe to that someone or something. Elect to receive updates, alerts, reports. That doesn’t mean they follow you....

Neal Mann, @fieldproducer, a sharp and savvy Sky journalist who mixes old-school cunning with new media nous, and Andy Carvin, @acarvin, National Public Radio's social media strategist and arguably the doyen of new media journalism.
They take different approaches to social media ... Mann uses social media as a source to inform his mainstream media journalism; Carvin ... has focused his journalism on and from social media platforms - curating a fascinating stream of tweets from Tunisia, Egypt and Libya."

Let me save you the suspense and tell you that Scott Kurnit ended up inventing the forefather of curated Web content, now called About.com. But how he discovered and developed About is worth a bit of background. You know that show on cable TV called Mad Men about the drinking, smoking, snappy dressers of Madison Avenue in the 1960s? Well, Kurnit grew up in a family with a “Mad Man” as a head of the household. His father was an advertising executive during the golden age of Madison Avenue. Kurnit was born in 1954 and experienced firsthand the transformative power of TV. “Wow, this changes everything,” he remembers thinking. But while most folks thought of TV as a one-way medium, the young Kurnit quickly moved from local TV programming to being the head of programming at a Columbus, Ohio, experiment called Qube. This was the first test of interactive TV from a company known then as Warner Cable, long before Time and Warner merged, and longer still before TimeWarner merged with AOL. Which is to say a very long time ago.....

Curation Nation: The Rise of Content Entrepreneurs (Part 1) | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

Future of Media follows changes, evolution and trends in media and journalism. Future of Media is a DigitalJournal.com project.
The following is an excerpt from Curation Nation by Steven Rosenbaum, CEO of video site Magnify.net. Curation Nation tracks the growing use of human filters for the daily info deluge overflowing our lives. Rosenbaum believes computerized curation is on its way out, and human curators are the future of media.

"And so, I set off, with a red wagon and a dream to be the neighborhood’s best-known proprietor of day-old newspapers. “Extra, extra, read all about it. Get your day-old news here!” I chirped as I went from door to door. I figured not everyone had the paper delivered; maybe they’d rather get a bargain on day-old news.

Selling newspapers isn’t easy. And selling newspapers that are slightly used turned out to be a bit of a challenge. But sure enough, I sold a few. And found that there was some value left between those pages. My work as a used-newspaper sales boy didn’t last for long, as I found more lucrative employment selling polished stones (Hot Rocks) and then performing as a magician at local birthday parties and Elks clubs.

But I was reminded of my used-news experiment the other day. The debate over free versus paid news distribution continues to create a dividing line between conventional printed news distribution and today’s digital Web delivery.

A few questions I found myself pondering: Was I stealing news when I resold the newspapers left by the sidewalk? Did the owner of that newspaper have the right to give me the right to resell it?"

Content curation is a huge deal on the web today.

 

As content on the web grows exponentially, our ability to make sense of it is inversely proportional. In other words, we are fast sinking under the sheer amount of content pouring onto the web every day.

 

The social web hasn’t made life any easier on content production either – in fact its lowered the barrier to entry.

 

According to Facebook, 30 billion pieces of content (web links, news blogs etc) are shared each month on the social network, with no sign of slowing.

 

Right now it seems that content curation, and curation platforms are going to be an area of growth on the web.

 

This collection of new and existing curation tools provide us with some organisation in the chaos; particularly when search algorithms fail.

10 Tips For Effective Content Curation

10 Tips For Effective Content Curation | Collaborative Content-Curation: new Forms of Reading & Writing #curation #journalism #education #e-learning | Scoop.it

Content curation - finding the most relevant, useful, and informative pieces of content on the Web and sharing them with your readers - is one of the major themes in content marketing these days.

Instead of trying to produce all of your own marketing content, why not strive, as well, to make your website a venue that your audience will trust as a great, if not the very best, source of information on your chosen topic, issue, subject area?

Curating content “is a way to make yourself known as the Steady Eddy source of information,” says Larry Chase, editor in chief of Web Digest for Marketers (WDFM), a weekly newsletter. “You want people to think, ‘This guy knows what I need to know.’”

Content curation famously helped made The Huffington Post a big hit, and it can do wonders for your marketing efforts, too, but only if you go about it properly. Here are some ideas for making your content curation efforts more effective:........
