  • What is Content Curation?
  • 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.
  • putting them into a context with organization, annotation, and presentation.
  • Why is Content Curation Valuable?
  • it isn’t surprising that  data or content on the Internet is  measured in exabytes, or billions of gigabytes.
  • content curation can be professional of learning
  • with so much information available and coming at us from many sources,  we often don’t know if it’s the right information or if it’s current.
  • In today’s world of content abundance,  the skill of  how to find, make sense, and share content that we need to be effective in our work is critical.   Simply put, being a content curator is a method to help you stay informed about your field and be more effective at your job.

  •  Finding the information or “seeking”  is only one third of the task
  • Making sense of the information is just as important.  Sense making can be a simple as how you annotate the links your share,  the presentation,  or what you’ve left out.      Sense making can be writing a blog post using the links (like this post) or summarizing the key points in a presentation.  
  • Finally, the sharing – is about giving the best nuggets of content to your audience in a format that they can easily digest and apply it.
  • Putting content curation into practice is part art form, part science, but mostly about daily practice.   You don’t need to do it for hours, but a little bit everyday will help you develop and hone the skills.  It is best to do the seeking part in small bursts to avoid feeling overwhelmed.
