The Key Added Value a Content Curator Can Provide: His Time

The Key Added Value a Content Curator Can Provide: His Time | Social Work Mental Health | Scoop.it

"I still have to do all the searching for new and good content sources and filtering the content I get. Separating the crap from the awesome. All by myself. This is hard work and very time consuming"

Dorlee Michaelis insight:

Robin Good wisely notes that the added value a curator brings to the table is his/her time, the judgment of whether the particular article(s) are of value and what items to highlight.

Un Post di Robin Good sulla content curation

Un illuminante intervento di Robin Good pubblicato sulla sua rubrica "content curation world" il 4/6/2015, che prende spunto da una dichiarazione di Nuno Figueroa a proposito della cura dei contenuti: "Devo fare le ricerche di nuove fonti attendibili e filtrare i contenuti che ottengo. Separare la spazzatura da ciò che è buono. Tutto da solo. Questa è un duro lavoro e richiede molto tempo"

 

Traduzione Sintetica

Traduco sinteticamente e commento la risposta di Robin Good in quanto, al di là dell'occasione specifica, contiene alcuni importanti elementi atti a chiarire un possibile modo di intendere la cura dei contenuti nel quale mi riconosco.

 

L'errore di Figueroa

L'errore di Fugueroa è di considerare "il tempo" come qualcosa di inessenziale, il tempo impiegato nella cura dei contenuti è la chiave su cui si fonda il valore che il curatore conferisce al suo lavoro: tanto maggiore sarà il tempo impiegato a contestualizzare, commentare, arricchire, chiarire, etc., un determinato contenuto; tanto maggiore sarà il "valore aggiunto" del lavoro del curatore.

 

Via ingegneristica e umanistica alla content curation

La via ingegneristica della cura dei contenuti che, servendosi di algoritmi, produce automaticamente informazioni e raccolte di informazioni, fa risparmiare tempo perché elimina l'approccio ermeneutico offerto dal curatore. I nostri contenuti saranno tanto più significativi, unici e originali quanto più tempo spenderemo nel curarli.

Gli strumenti a supporto di un approccio "umanistico" alla curation ci sono, ma non ci sarà mai nessuno strumento che potrà sostituire l'opera di valutazione e filtro offerta da un curatore "umano" e stabilire che un post sia copiato e incollato non originale, valutare il carattere innovativo di un'idea, etc.
Sarebbe come voler automatizzare il processo di creazione artistica nella scultura o pittura per risparmiare tempo, a meno che lo scopo principale dell'artista non fosse meramente quantitativo e risparmiare tempo uno dei suoi obiettivi.

 

Cura dei contenuti e intelligenza collettiva

Il curatore dei contenuti trae la sua funzione nel contesto della cultura intesa come intelligenza collettiva e connettiva, proprio dall'utilità e dal valore che offre alle altre persone grazie all'impiego delle sue capacità e della sua esperienza nel raccogliere, trovare, collezionare, organizzare, aggiungere valore e presentare informazioni su temi specifici, interessi, problemi, eventi. La sua realizzazione in quanto curatore non consiste nell'aggirare queste operazioni o accelerare questi passaggi.

Una simile visione è il frutto di un approccio che presenta la content curation come una forma di "marketing" che consente di risparmiare tempo e di acquistare visibilità. L'obiettivo è quindi perfezionare le competenze curatoriali in modo da offrire ai nostri lettori la sola cosa che loro interessa: avere una guida e un riferimento di fiducia che offra un servizio di alta qualità in relazioni agli interessi specifici che gli utenti hanno.

 

Curation e Tempo

Per questo motivo un curatore di contenuti dovrà utilizzare, sperimentare e testare molti diversi strumenti che possano aiutarlo a migliorare la qualità del suo servizio, ma questo per migliorare le sue capacità di cercare, trovare, collezionare, organizzare, contestualizzare le informazioni, migliorando complessivamente la bontà della sua azione e non certo per risparmiare tempo.

Jeff Domansky's comment, August 3, 2016 2:30 AM
Robin, my view is that better tools help us be better curators. Finding higher quality content faster allows more quality time for curators to add more valuable insight. I welcome better time-saving tools. Cheers!
Robin Good's comment, August 3, 2016 5:00 AM
Jeff: Like if we got a better Photoshop we could do better images. The talent is not in the tools, but in our heads. Tools can help, but they can't make you do better work than what you are capable of. Practice is what does it. My two cents.

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: How To Comment In Social Media - An Infographic Of Tips For High Quality Feedback

Innovation Design In Education - ASIDE: How To Comment In Social Media - An Infographic Of Tips For High Quality Feedback | Social Work Mental Health | Scoop.it
Students are writing more than ever before. They are tapping out rapid-fire fingerstrokes across multiple platforms. From text messages to social media, children and adults of all ages are engaging like never before with the written word. This type of transliteracy emphasizes more than ever the need for thoughtful conversations and clear instructions that guide students in how best to express high quality feedback.

Most remarks in the comment sections of Instagram and YouTube are useless. They are either crass or curt, sprinkled with emoji that do more to satisfy the ego of the commenter than to further the richness of the page.

Instead, high quality comments on blogs and social media should create a dialogue that furthers the colloquy and deepens the learning. Replies on Twitter, for example, should offer suggestions or make interpersonal connections. Thoughtful comments in social media should add information, incorporate links, or most importantly, ask questions.

Is the Word “Teacher” too Narrow for Maker Educators? | Agency by Design | Social Work Mental Health | Scoop.it
Teaching has many goals, yet for years didactic lectures dominated classrooms across the country. Thankfully, education has progressed in many ways, including how we view the role of classroom teachers. With a greater emphasis on peer collaboration and project-based learning, teaching has become more akin to facilitating. However, when looking at the roles of educators in makerspaces and maker-centered classrooms, it seems that teachers are much more than facilitators. Teachers can be…

Dr. Pyrate's curator insight, May 4, 2015 3:33 PM

Don't get me wrong: I'm a pyrate. I believe in open sourcing. I also understand the paradox in the Anglophone educational and academic ideologies that "you are a valuable, unique intellectual individual with something important to say; and you mean NOTHING, and we won't listen to you until you have a whole bunch of intellectual allies to back you up, and you can prove it."  

So...these are things we have to keep an eye on.
