A framework for content curation In conversation at EduTECH earlier this month, Harold Jarche evoked George E. P. Box’s quote that “all models are wrong, but some are useful”. Pearltrees Brings New Editing Features To Its Curation Service Pearltrees, the Paris-based curation and bookmarking service, is launching a major update to its service today that brings a number of new editing tools to the site. Pearltrees users were already able to write and save notes, as well as store images and other content on the service. Now, they will also be able to annotate the texts they saved from around the web, caption images and use the service’s new WYSIWYG text editor to write more complex notes. The service is also adding a couple of new personalization features that allow users to add a new background to their collections and change the overall look and feel of the collection. The new editor, as well as the ability to caption images and illustrate their collections with handpicked images will be available to all users, while the more advanced personalization and annotation tools will only be available for paying Pearltrees Premium subscribers. 2.

Curation in Learning I’m getting very excited about the possibilities of using more digital curation in learning. The trouble with curation is that I’m seeing it everywhere. As such I wanted to come up with a short framework that I could use to talk about how I see curation in learning being used, both at the organisation level and for individuals. So, go easy on me; here’s what I’m proposing… We can think of digital curation as being useful to us in four broad roles that I’m calling Inspiration, Aggregation, Integration and Application. Inspiration is how I term curation that is done by other people on your behalf, outside of a formal learning environment.

5 content curation examples so good they'll make you jealous - Blog You know how “a picture is both a thousand words”, right? Well, sometimes just showing an example is the best way to illustrate an idea. In that spirit, it seemed about time for a round up of some great examples of content curation.

These are companies and publications that don’t just aggregate content – they add their own commentary and spin to what they curate.
