If you’re not too sure what “content curation is all about”, I think this quote from Steve Rosenbaum explains it in a nutshell:
“In a world of bandwidth and content abundance, we’re overwhelmed with data, tweets, blogs, check in’s and media. It used to be we surfed the web. Now the waves of the web are just too big. Curation is the new magic that makes the web work. Bringing the web back to human scale with human filters you trust and love. A powerful mix of passion and context turns noise back into signal.” Source: 5 Tips For Great Content Curation
Effective curation requires technology and tools to find, filter and validate content at the speed of the real-time web. It requires knowledge domain experts who can interpret and add insight to the content they are harvesting. It needs people who can utilise the power of networks and networking to source relevant and reliable information. In short, these are the essential skills of the 21st Century knowledge worker. This workshop will focus on developing these skills.
If you’re still confused about “Content Curation”, here’s a slide deck that might explain.
