Building a Community of Curators Sharing “Ideas that Matter”

Building a Community of Curators Sharing “Ideas that Matter” | Leveraging Information | Scoop.it

"One of Scoop.it’s intriguing aspects is being organized around topics as opposed to the people doing the curation. This differentiates the site from Facebook and Twitter, and it also seems to be resulting in a more professional look and feel – more of a LinkedIn in that sense, than a personal network" writes David Weir on 7x7 reviewing Scoop.it and developing on how it differentiates from other publishing platforms.

 

7x7 also called us "One of our favorite online publishing platforms" on Twitter and we feel grateful and happy: thanks!

What Kind Of Curation Site Should You Use?

What Kind Of Curation Site Should You Use? | Leveraging Information | Scoop.it

Deanna Dahlsad designed this simple decision-tree to help differentiate between different Content Curation platforms and which one you should use as a business user.

 

I found this interesting as it's one of the first ones I see that made this obvious and simple differentiation between the different platforms out there. I'm not sure I would describe Scoop.it as article-based (we obviously have large pictures, infographics, videos or SlideShare presentations that are not articles) but I can see where she's coming from and her intention: if the content you curate is not 100% image, "image-based eye-candy" is not enough.

Deanna Dahlsad's comment, October 5, 2012 1:27 AM
Thank you for scooping my article and decision tree! Most content curation sites do offer images, as I noted; but there are distinct differences between image-based sites like Pinterest & sites like Scoop.It especially in terms of users.
Chris Lott UAF's comment, October 5, 2012 1:31 PM
The decision tree here represents our decisions on what curation technology to use as an educational organization. It's a great starting point for discussion.
Guillaume Decugis's comment, October 9, 2012 9:53 PM
Hi Deanna - Yes, I found it was a great one. By the way, I was thinking of using it in a future presentation. Would you be ok with that? I'd of course include the reference to your site that's on the original picture. Let me know. Thanks!

Flipping Bloom’s Taxonomy

Flipping Bloom’s Taxonomy | Leveraging Information | Scoop.it
I think the revised Bloom’s Taxonomy is wrong. I agree that the taxonomy accurately classifies various types of cognitive thinking skills. It certainly identifies the different levels of complexity. But its organizing framework is dead wrong.
