Content curation is the process of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme.  The work  involves  sifting, sorting, arranging, and publishing information.  A content curator cherry picks the best content that is important and relevant to share with their community. It isn’t unlike what a museum curator does to produce an exhibition:   They identify the theme, they provide the context, they decide which paintings to hang on the wall, how they should be annotated, and how they should be displayed for the public.

“Content/digital media curation is the addition of 1. content 2. trust and 3. meaning for the benefit of the reader.”

  • Yet another buzzword, what does it mean? Content curation is the process of sorting through the vast amounts of content on the web and presenting it in a meaningful and organized way around a specific theme.  The work  involves  sifting, sorting, arranging, and publishing information.  A content curator cherry picks the best content that is important and relevant to share with their community. It isn’t unlike what a museum curator does to produce an exhibition:   They identify the theme, they provide the context, they decide which paintings to hang on the wall, how they should be annotated, and how they should be displayed for the public.“Content/digital media curation is the addition of 1. content 2. trust and 3. meaning for the benefit of the reader.” Reference sites: http://onecoolsitebloggingtips.com/2012/06/12/content-curation-baby-steps/http://www.bethkanter.org/content-curation-101/
  • What does curation look like in practice? Itcan be either a personal or an organisational activity (Pininterest, Pearl Tree, Scoop.it as examples of curation tools). Curation tools are used to assist in the creation of MOOCs. A MOOC is a Massive Open Online Course. There are two types: cMoocs (thetraditional connectivist MOOC ) which offers little new content. It’s about aggregating and repurposing existing content. The video link in this slide explains how knowledge works in this type of MOOC. xMOOCs have more formal content, assessment and offer certificates of completion or badges. MOOCs are free of charge (for now) to whoever wants to sign up (often a massive number of people). MOOCs have been around for a number of years but recently there has been a slightly hysterical reaction to them as they started to appear in the mainstream and educational press, with free online courses being offered by the likes of Stanford and Harvard universities or MIT through companies such as Udacity, Coursera  and edX. The thing to remember is that,”…a MOOC isn’t a thing at all, just a methodological approach, with no inherent value except insofar as it’s used.“ (@Hybrid.ped). However, they are not to be disregarded. At the moment, issues remain about the lack of full credentials, potential cheating and plagiarism etc and retention rates but this could be changing soon. Note the recent partnership between Pearson and edX (proctored exams).

  • Some would argue that there is no better way to learn something than to research, organize and build a personal framework of information, facts, resources, tools and stories around it. Reliance on any type of course textbook – digital, multimedia, interactive or otherwise – only fits as a more marginal element in student-centred learning models. And this does teach critical thinking skills. But, curation on it’s own in not equal to education.Curation benefits the process of education enormously by highlighting paths to credible information – anyone who has worked with a passionate librarian would have experienced this. But education is more than this. Education is a process that facilitates deep thinking. It is about helping learners develop a relationship with both material and their own life experiences that encourages problem solving, creativity, creation, and informed conversation.  It allows people to consider whether what they read, hear, see, and experience fits with their ethics, values, and views of the world or whether it challenges them.  It’s about contextualisation. Curation is used by educators and marketers and there is an overlap. As our case study will show you, it can be used for higher education marketing. The difference is in the point of view.

  • The challenge is to do this well, do this ethically and address the financial reality.AggrevationAt its worst, online publishers (bloggers, mostly, although others have been involved as well,) have skirted the line of plagiarism and outright stealing of content by “curating” entire blog posts from other sources in order to steal some of the built-in search and link juice from the original source.AggregationA necessity for dealing with information overload.Effective curators add value to content because they decide what is worthwhile, providing meaning to the content through what is selected, what is omitted, how it is organized and how it is summarized or introducedMore dependable than a search engine’s algorithmReferences:http://www.masternewmedia.org/what-makes-a-great-curator-great/http://www.bethkanter.org/content-curation-101/http://www.curatorscode.org/
  • How teachers curate:http://iteachu.uaf.edu/grow-skills/filelink-management/content-curation-toolsAs instructors, we are all  information curators.  How do you collect and share currently relevant content with your students?  How do your students research and share information that they find with the rest of class? What tools do you use to manage or facilitate presentation of resources? Is it public? Can students access it at other times? In groups?Modern web tools make it easy for both students and instructors to contribute online discoveries to class conversations.  Using free online content curation software, we can easily integrate new content in a variety of ways.Instructors are using online content curation tools in the classroom to:create group activities.organize and disseminate new content as a sort of digital hand out to students in online and flipped classrooms.collect and share professional reading materials with students.foster discussion about current events.encourage students to become both content creators and curators.connect to experts outside class and to the world knowledge base.critique information available on the web.teach students to curate social media.help students gain credibility and exposure.keep track of online research efforts.create reading lists.help students gain access to the ‘collective intelligence’ of the Internet.
