An absolutely significant skill in any research or investigation, for educators and learners in the digital age - the curation of content- with a clear focus or question in mind, the capacity to target a search field, sift through, reflect on and make decisions about the most suitable resource or evidence to use. What a great learning experience.

La curación de contenidos abre una nueva puerta al aprendizaje y es que nos volvemos partícipes de la cadena, cuando nos detenemos a clasificar, analizar y publicar los contenidos que son más afines y relevantes según nuestras necesidades.

News Curation Best Practices for Journalists on Twitter | Content Curation World |
Share and discover what’s happening right now, anywhere in the world.
Robin Good's insight:

If you are a journalist and you are using Twitter to pick and share relevant news for your following, you may want to check out these straightforward suggestions on how to best manage your news curation process.

The Twitter blog team has analyzed back in September of last year, thousands of tweets from over 150 news companies and individual reporters, to distill which are the most important traits of good news curation.

In essence:

  • Tweet content related to your beat; live-tweet 

  • Use hashtags for context and @cite your sources

  • Share what you're reading with your Twitter followers

  • Use the Retweet button to curate

To the point. Useful. 8/10

The Ideal Blogger's Workflow for Effectively Curating Online Content

The Ideal Blogger's Workflow for Effectively Curating Online Content | Content Curation World |
Robin Good's insight:

What are the key steps that a blogger should follow to effectively curate content online?

Silvya Rosenthal Tolisano shares her personal workflow to curate content as a blogger, by highlighting the seven key steps she suggests to go through when preparing content for a blog, 

  1. Find & Acquire
  2. Select & Filter
  3. Group, Organize & Arrange
  4. Editorialize, Contextualize & Annotate
  5. Create, Present, Transform & Remix
  6. Engage & Customize
  7. Share 

and by reminding those already doing it

a) not to "copy - paste" entire long passages from articles "as they are", but to rather share short portions to which personal commentary, evaluation or extra value must be added,

b) not to confuse long list of links or resources, for which there is often very little verification and analysis, let alone commentary and added value, with curation.  

The key element of curation is adding value, not collecting large amount of items on a topic. That's what a collector does, not a curator. 

Useful. Informative. Great illustration. 8/10
