A Simple Process To Learn How To Curate Any Content You Read: The Cornell Notes

Robin Good's insight:



I recently stumbled onto this short video tutorial (1':57") which was created to explain to students how to take effective notes during a lesson or lecture.


Right upon my first play through it, I immediately felt that the steps suggested in it, could be also very useful for anyone just starting out with content curation and wanting to follow some kind of formal sequence to achieve good results.


The Cornell Notes video tutorial illustrates in fact in less than two minutes how to:
 
1) collect notes,

2) extract key concepts from them and

3) synthesize the essence of it in a presentable and readable format. 


If you are just starting out with content curation, this can be quite useful.


Useful. Simple. 8/10

如何策展你所阅读的任何内容的简单学习过程:看奈尔笔记方法。

康奈尔笔记法将笔记本分为三栏:大区域的主栏、条目栏(线索栏)、总结栏。

记笔记方法为”5R's”法:

1.Record- 在主栏中,尽可能多地记录一些重要事实、思想、概念等。

2.Reduce,归纳- 在线索栏,将这些事实,思想和概念归纳概括为一个词汇、或一句短话。

3.Recite,背诵 - 利用线索栏的提示,尽可能全面、而非机械地,用你自己的语言复述你所记录的主栏中有关讲座内容的事实、思想,然后对照笔记确认你所讲的。

4.Reflect,反思 - 思考这些材料与课程、单元/被讨论的科目之间的关系,这部分内容卸载总结栏。

5.Review,总结 - 每周花10分钟快速回顾你的笔记,你将会记住你所学习的大部分内容。

The Basic Flipboard Curation Guide

The Basic Flipboard Curation Guide | Content Curation World | Scoop.it
Robin Good's insight:



Flipboard, as you probably already know, is a great app (available on iOS and Android) which not only allows you to read and keep yourself updated on your favorite topics in a fresh and highly visual experience, but, since recently, it also offers you the ability to become a "curator" of whatever topic you are into.


Your job is simply to pick great stuff you stumble upon and to save it into the appropriate magazine you have created. It's not conceptually much different than clicking a Facebook "like" button and adding your comment, but we the added option of generating in the meanwhile a beautifully laid out digital magazine.


The secret here, to do something that it is of some value, it is to choose on a very specific "theme/topic" and to get picky about what you choose to publish in your magazine(s).

In this useful article Sue Waters collects and curates some of the best tips, video tutorials and techniques to make the best of your Flipboard curation experience in a step-by-step guide.



Useful. Resourceful. Media-rich. 8/10

tephen Dale's insight:

Flipboard (an App available for iOS and Android) is my favourite app for consuming and sharing inrormation. Relevence is improved by being able to choose the topics you want to follow, and liking or favouriting specific articles.

 

The recent addition of the Flipboard Editort now enables you to create and curate your own magazine, which you can share with others, or keep simply as a place for bookmarking.

 

In this article, Sue Waters provides a step by step guide on how to use and make the most of the Flipboard features.

Good Advice On How To Become A Content Curator (especially if you are a librarian) | Backtalk

Good Advice On How To Become A Content Curator (especially if you are a librarian) | Backtalk | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Robin Good: If you are a librarian, an information scientist or someone who has been trained to sift through lots of information and to extract valuable insight, you will enjoy reading this article by John Warrier published today on Library Journal. 


Mr. Warrier, who is information librarian, has two jobs. The first is as a librarian at a community college. The second as a content curator at Neatorama.com where he "highlights" neat, odd, and fascinating bites of amusement, from the latest breakthroughs across hundreds of topics.


In the article he shares his insight and advice about content curation and on what it may take for newbies to break into this field.


"...content curators focus on the news needs of particular professions and industries.



Professional News Curation Examples

1) The staff of PRDaily.com, for example, provides public relations professionals with the latest and the best news about that industry.


2) DesignBoom.com keeps track of the newest and hottest trends in art and industrial design.


3) BusinessInsider.com highlights news about world markets.


...



Getting Started

You can get started in content curation quite quickly.


a) All you need is a social media platform, such as a blog, Twitter feed, open-access Facebook page, or Google+ profile.


b) Find the best content and add new items daily.


c) Focus not on your own interests, but those of your readership.


d) Prove that you can draw readers as a trusted source and keep them coming back for more.


e) Then you should try to secure an internship.

Many content curation firms, such as Mediaite, Gawker and Flavorwire, offer internships that will give you hands-on training in the field. They’ll train you to examine your audience, compile potential sources and pitch your content to the audience in an attention-grabbing way."


Useful. 7/10
