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。

How To Curate Company News: The Process | Shel Holtz Blog | Content Curation World | Scoop.it

Excerpted from the original article by Shel Holtz:

 

"Companies are increasingly focused on content marketing.


...

 

There’s plenty of evidence that business is adopting content curation, but the practice hasn’t been around long enough for organizations to innovate more targeted, results-focused uses.

 

Business takes many of its lessons from how everyone else makes use of social tools.


To start applying content curation, communicators need to pay attention to how others are using the crop of curation tools that have found acceptance online.

 

Curating news that the media isn’t covering can lead to media coverage. And, by extension, it can improve and expand on stories the media are covering.

 

The process would look something like this:

 

1) Identify opportunity:

Any company news is a potential curated collection.

Think about a product launch, or financial events.

 

2) Select curators:

Since anybody can curate, the criteria for selecting curators should begin with their familiarity with the topic. The key to a solid curation effort is the selection of the best, most relevant and representative posts.

 

3) Monitor conversation:

With the curator in place, it’s time to develop key words and set up a monitoring plan.

 

4) Select and comment on the best content:

The heart of curation is, of course, curating. Curators need to cull through the many items peole have posted in order to find the right posts to create an accurate overview of the news.

Moreover, adding context is one more curation chore. When appropriate, adding commentary improves the value of the collection.

 

5) Announce and promote the "curated" collection:

The time to make the announcement is just after the collection gets rolling, populated with enough content to make it interesting but with still more to come."

Content Curation: From Information To Knowledge [Video]

Robin Good: Start this video clip at 1':42" (up to 3':30") and you can get a pretty good idea of what a content curator does and why what he does has so much to do with sense-making, making things understandable for others and ultimately extracting contextualized "meaning" from information "as is".


Must-see. Excellent. 9/10



P.S.: Thanks to Howard Rheingold for spotting this clip and sharing it.
