What Is Content Curation?
What is content curation? Content curation is when someone finds, organizes, annotates and shares the most relevant and highest quality content on a specific topic for their target audience. A museum exhibit, a documentary film, a textbook are excellent everyday examples of this. You can curate digital content from a wide variety of online sources including trade publications, social media profiles, blogs, scientific journals, news outlets, videos, podcasts, ebooks, white papers, images, cartoons, memes, tv shows, movies, and more. At the center of it all is the curator – you – hand-selecting which content to share, determining the organizational method that will increase accessibility and usability, and adding context and insight that will aid your audience in gaining a deeper understanding of the content. For this assignment: Create a presentation of a curated collection of digital content (12 to 15 items) relating to various social psychology concepts covered in this course, adding context and insight for your audience to gain a deeper understanding of the content. You can focus on a specific theme or area of application if you like. You must include source citations for each piece of content in the presentation, including image sourcing. My suggestions for easy, accessible, free online presentation tools/applications include (but are not limited to): Emaze.com, Prezi.com, Google Slides, and of course PowerPoint. There are two distinct due dates: 1) One for Posting the presentation (either embed or provide a link to the presentation) in the discussion forum for this assignment so your classmates can evaluate and comment on your presentation. 2) And one for you to Comment and provide meaningful and constructive feedback on at least two of your classmates’ presentations. Submit a complete in the appropriate dropbox when Everything is finished (both posting and commenting) and you are ready for your project to be graded.
