In the course of my last couple of posts, a few people mentioned that they had no idea what Scoop.it! was nor what the term scooping or curating meant.
Just recently I came across these two great videos which are both informative and enjoyable!
Firstly – curation. Joyce Valenza is behind the creation of this wonderful musical parody – Curation, the musical – which explains all the pertinent details anyone would need to know about curation. Without a doubt, it will bring a smile to your face as you listen! But, in case you don’t catch all the words, read them here. If however, you are after a lengthier explanation about curation, you can’t go past the post Curation is the new search tool on Joyce Valenza’s blog ‘NeverendingSearch’
For a concise explanation of Scoop.it! the tool that seems to have taken curators by storm, have a look at this video which I found on the Scoop.it! blog. Learning to use Scoop.it! won’t take you more than ten minutes, so have a go and see why people are getting hooked on this great new tool.
