Curation: What Lauren has Learned, and How You Can Too

Curation: What Lauren has Learned, and How You Can Too | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

From the practice of curation, Lauren has learned "quite a bit" about finding and leveraging online tools, enabling her to extend her circle of web-based resources and connections. She also came to better understand how to share information effectively, as well as gauge the expectations and current interest in her topics on a broad scale.

 

Although her background isn't in media or marketing, Lauren has gained knowledge about both of these increasingly important topics which affect anyone with any type of online presence, regardless of one's field, background, or business. Lauren credits many of the excellent curators she follows on Scoop.it, along with the practice of curation itself, for this newfound knowledge.

 

That said, Lauren's advice for anyone hesitant to jump into curation is to try it out and curate a topic that is of genuine interest to you that relates to your particular area of expertise. If you have a passion for a subject, she says, it will be reflected in the responses and followers you receive. If you're looking to learn more about a subject you are less familiar with, Lauren recommends following some of the curators who are experts in the field and learn how they operate.

 

Here are a few tips from Lauren Moss for those starting out on Scoop.it:

* Follow like-minded people and see what they follow or rescoop; I've discovered several great topics as a result of visiting posts that have been rescooped by curators I already follow.
* This may seem obvious, but make sure to read the complete article you are scooping, and if necessary, fact-check to ensure that you are sharing correct and timely information.
* Create summaries that accurately reflect the main points of any given article, video, or link- consider adding why you are posting it, or insert an excerpt of the text for more specifics.
* Use photos that also reflect the main points of the post and add topic-specific keywords so your scoop can be found.
* Suggest relevant links to the topics you follow if you come across them- I always appreciate a good suggestion, and because someone took the time to share something of value with me, I will take a look at that individual's profile and potentially follow his or her topic(s).
* Use the Scoop.it bookmarklet to scoop articles from other online sources- it's a great tool that's very easy to use.

Namibian-German negotiations about the genocide perpetrated in the former German colony South West Africa in 1904-1908 have just entered their third year. The start of the negotiations in late 2015 marked a turning point after more than a century of German denialism. But now tangible progress seems elusive, and a crisis may be imminent
