The concept of “Curation” has rapidly moved from museums to mainstream media. As the sheer volume of Tweets, Likes, Blogs, YouTube videos, and emails overwhelm the web, publishers and brands are increasingly being asked to provide a human face to content organization and editorial curation. With the right framework, curation can be a powerful tool to help editorial meet new challenges.
The rate of content produced every day far outpaces our ability to keep up with it. We’re all drowning. And in all the noise, distraction and low-value content, we’re missing the good stuff. And that means our skills and knowledge is becoming less valuable. That’s a dangerous position to be in. But there’s something we can do about it. We can find, filter and share content more effectively to stay smart. If you’re a learning professional, you can do it for your internal teams. We argue that content curation is the new essential skill for learning professionals. In this ebook we set out why curation matters for learning, and how to do it effectively.
Not only. Curation helps learners develop critical analysis skills and to evaluate multiple viewpoints before making their own mind, preparing them for a future where it will be increasingly harder to tell truth from fiction. At the same time curation helps learning professionals to discover and utilize rare and hard to find resources that can complement the materials they prepare.
