What is digital curation?
The digital curation lifecycle Digital curation and data preservation are ongoing processes, requiring considerable thought and the investment of adequate time and resources. You must be aware of, and undertake, actions to promote curation and preservation throughout the data lifecycle. The digital curation lifecycle comprises the following steps: Conceptualise: conceive and plan the creation of digital objects, including data capture methods and storage options. Create: produce digital objects and assign administrative, descriptive, structural and technical archival metadata. Access and use: ensure that designated users can easily access digital objects on a day-to-day basis. Appraise and select: evaluate digital objects and select those requiring long-term curation and preservation. Dispose: rid systems of digital objects not selected for long-term curation and preservation. Reappraise: return digital objects that fail validation procedures for further appraisal and reselection.

» La « curation », un nouveau métier du Web? Très bientôt, le contenu accessible sur Internet doublera toutes les 72 heures. Trouver une information pertinente deviendra une tâche encore plus ardue! En réponse à cette préoccupation, une pratique est en vogue depuis plusieurs mois sur le Web: la curation. On mise désormais sur l’édition et la diffusion plutôt que sur la création de contenu. En quoi consiste la curation? Quels en sont les outils? Qu’est-ce que la curation? Le terme anglais curator se traduit par conservateur dans le domaine de l’art. Source: L’organisateur de contenu recherche l’information sur les réseaux sociaux ou dans les médias traditionnels, la sélectionne, la classe pour ensuite la partager à l’interne (site de l’entreprise, bulletin électronique) ou à l’externe (médias sociaux, blogue). Tout le monde fait de l’organisation de contenu sans le savoir, que ce soit en publiant un lien sur Facebook ou Twitter et en y intégrant un commentaire ou encore en émettant un avis sur TripAdvisor.

Why Curation Will Transform Education and Learning: 10 Key Reasons There is a growing number of key trends that are both rapidly revolutionizing the world of education as we know it and opening up opportunities to review and upgrade the role and scope of many of its existing institutions, (as the likeliness that they are going to soon become obsolete and unsustainable, is right in front of anyone's eyes). George Siemens, in his recent Open Letter to Canadian Universities, sums them up well: 1) An Overwhelming Abundance of Information Which Begs To Be OrganizedThe goal is not (and probably it never was) to learn or memorize all of the information available out there. It's just too much even if we focus only on the very essence of it. The goal is to learn how to learn, to know where to look for something and to be able to identify which parts of all the information available are most relevant to learn or achieve a certain goal or objective.This is why new digital literacy skills are of such great importance. From the New York Times: "...Mr.

Digital Curation: Alternatives to Storify As I wrote in one of the early ProfHacker blog posts, it’s always a good idea to have a backup plan. This truth was brought home to me this semester in my teaching. About a month ago, students in my course on “Writing in Digital Environments” began experimenting with Storify, a social media curation tool we’ve covered before here at ProfHacker. As part of their work for the course, the students have been using Twitter since the semester began. Unfortunately, on the day the Storify assignment was due, some students (and apparently many Storify users) lost their work due to a mistake made by Storify with their database. In order to fulfill the task of analyzing and presenting their Twitter activity, students would need to use an alternative to Storify. In the end, most of my students decided to go back to Storify and hope that the mistake that knocked their work offline won’t be repeated. How about you?

» Ethan Zuckerman on curation (and many, many other things) Dyfeisgar Totally floored by t his blog post from Ethan Zuckerman . Great stuff. Here’s a thought on ‘curation’: Like everyone else, I’m experiencing a shift in how I get news about the world. In the pre-web world and early web days, news of the world came primarily through curated media – broadcast television, newspapers, magazines. On the other hand, curators invariably have biases, and the ability to seek information that appeals to our own interests and preferences is one of the most powerful capacities the modern web has put in our hands. We need mechanisms to ensure that search gets complemented with serendipity, , not just those of the majority.

You can read the table of contents and follow the book on this page: See the table of contents for the book here: BLOGTASTIC project Previous article: What’s on your “About Me” page? Some people think that they can create a brand simply through their blog. There’s a huge difference between building a brand and extending a brand. Let’s look at brand extensions for a moment. Crest is known for its mint-flavored toothpaste, but they also have launched cinnamon and citrus flavored toothpaste. Note: There is a limit. When you launch a blog, your blog is typically a brand extension. There is no shortcut to building a powerful personal brand. A blog is a great way to extend your brand online. Blogging Tip: Focus on building your personal brand–online and offline Whether you like it or not and whether you want it or not, you already have a personal brand. Related Articles

Non à la “curation” Néologisme du moment chez les prescripteurs du web, le terme "curation" n'est pas toujours très clair. Parce qu'il est trompeur sur ce qu'il désigne, Titiou Lecoq souhaite même le repousser au loin. Très loin. L’autre soir, je prenais l’apéro avec le binôme de l’Internet (elle et lui). Elle sortait d’une conférence sur la curation. Evidemment, j’ai commencé par hocher la tête d’un air entendu. Donc en anglais, le mot curator désigne les conservateurs de musée qui choisissent des tableaux pour organiser une exposition. Le syndrome du community manager? Evidemment, le combat est perdu d’avance. Comme vous n’aurez pas manqué de le noter, ami lecteur mon frère, au moins une fois par semaine, je fais un post avec des liens coolos que j’ai trouvés sur le web. L’avenir est sombre Pourtant, aller chercher des liens coolos sur l’interweb et les organiser, oui c’est du boulot. Donc attention, citation pour marketeux en mal de poésie : Ce billet a été initialement publié sur Girls & Geeks

Take Note: How to Curate Learning Digitally Note taking lies at the heart of curricula around the world. Beginning in elementary school, we teach students to "take notes" so that they can maintain a record of the content disseminated to them by the teacher. And yet, with mobile devices replacing paper notebooks, this process has become increasingly complex as students (and teachers) struggle to apply previous strategies to new tools. In the past, I wrote about the 4Ss of Note Taking With Technology. Students should choose a system that: Supports their learning needs Allows them to save across devices Possesses search capabilities Can be shared While I realize that younger students need scaffolding to learn any system, older students need to think beyond just transcribing information. Curate Recently, a middle-school teacher mentioned to me that her students could not keep track of everything. Curation implies more than just collecting resources into a folder or notebook.
