Study: Students Want Teachers To Use Technology ASAP

Study: Students Want Teachers To Use Technology ASAP | Visual Social Networking | Scoop.it

"One of my favorite comments ever was from a teacher who was talking about her journey bringing technology into her classroom and developing activities around the tools she had found. She was enjoying herself, the students loved the activities and were learning the material – so what could be going wrong? She was basically berated by another teacher because their shared students were complaining that they liked the technology-based classroom learning better, and that the other teacher’s stuff was boring."

Blending Creation and Curation in a Perfectly Balanced Content Diet | Free eBook by Curata

Blending Creation and Curation in a Perfectly Balanced Content Diet | Free eBook by Curata | Visual Social Networking | Scoop.it

In this free ebook by Curata (made up of 33 pages), with foreword by Ann Handley, Chief Content Officer of MarketingProfs and the co-author of "Content Rules", it will show you how to mix original content and curated content to get results.


In this ebook you’ll learn:

- How to re-purpose old content;

- Front-end marketing tactics;

- How to develop short and long form content;

- and how to keep your Content Beast well fed!


Here is a short excerpt as summary that caught my attention:

"6 tips for smart and effective content curation:

1) Be strategic about your topic selection. Do the legwork to determine audience needs. Think about the voice you want for your brand. Build your content around that.
2) Vary your sources. Exposure to a broad variety of voices, ideas, and information is one of the key values of a strong curation strategy.

3) Be selective. Curation is not about sharing as much as you can. It’s about sharing the best of the best – acting as a filter for your audience.

4) Organize based on audience needs. Make sure that you present your curated content using categorization and hierarchy that’s as useful to your audience as it is to you.

5) Adhere to ethical best practices. Always attribute your original sources and only publish abstracts and excerpts.

6) Add value. Help your audience get the most out of your curated content by providing insights, opinions, and context."


Very informative.

The Top Role Of Content Creation And Curation: Gartner's 2013 Social Marketing Survey

The Top Role Of Content Creation And Curation: Gartner's 2013 Social Marketing Survey | Visual Social Networking | Scoop.it

Part of this research is available to the general public, free of charge.
Excerpted from article about this Gartner's 2013 Social Marketing Survey:
"Summary: Gartner's 2013 U.S. Digital Marketing Spending Survey found that investments in content creation and social marketing totaled 21% of digital marketing budgets. Here we dive deeper into the implications of the content imperative for your social marketing strategy.

Overview:
- Impacts
a) Forty-seven percent of survey respondents see content creation and curation as the top role of their social marketing teams, often forcing them to outsource.
b) Digital marketers achieving effective social marketing create and curate content that speaks with an authentic voice.

- Recommendations
a) Balance outsourced content services with in-house expertise, building internal content creation and curation skills, while utilizing agencies and service providers to scale.
b) Develop a style guide to formalize your brand's voice and values, to clarify rules of engagement and to enforce companywide standards."

[There is a detailed analysis in the full article.]

Moreover, Jake Sorofman, Research Director at Gartner, adds some insights in his blog post:
"So it’s perhaps no surprise that Gartner’s 2013 social marketing survey pointed to content creation and curation as the key areas of focus for social marketing organizations—and the most outsourced function.

What’s different about content in the age of the social web?

- It’s human: it speaks with a conversational voice, from one human being to another. Thought isn’t hidden behind stilted corporate speak, chest-thumping claims and pompous language.
- It’s neutral: perhaps not wholly objective, but it holds fire on the hard sell in favor of issues-centric storytelling that supports a brand’s point of view without always making the brand the hero.
- It’s simple: attention spans aren’t what they used to be and competition for that limited attention has reached a fever pitch.
- It’s visual: It’s also easier to consume when you’re already up to your eyeballs in dense text.
- It’s curated: you don’t have to create all of your own content. Leverage happens when you organize and annotate third-party content that helps tell your story or sell your point of view.
- It’s conversational: communities talk back to sustain the dialogue in the form of comments, reviews, ratings and new content of their own that defends or argues against your point of view.
- It’s organic: it’s published fast, often in response to unpredictable moments."

Amita Malhotra's curator insight, April 16, 2013 6:17 AM

With the mainstreaming of content - channel management has taken a back seat. Differentiated content + value-adding curation is becoming key.

Gail Worthington-Eyre's curator insight, April 17, 2013 8:09 PM

Research confirms, content marketing and story telling engages the consumer in discussion that means something to them. Social media marketing is the voice of your business and your connection to your consumer. Have you developed your strategy yet?
