Curation is a vital skill

We live in the age of information, meaning that our ability to succeed are increasingly connected to our ability to manage and efficiently leverage information.

Stephanie Hatch Leishman, a former MIT social media strategist, states that “curation is using your expertise in a field to gather great content around a specific theme and present that content in a way that will educate others.”

Information lacks context

An information resource has value only when someone verifies, organises and curates it. Without context, it is disconnected from other relevant resources. It's like having an ingredient without a recipe.

Curation gives context to any information item to look at and appreciate. When the information resource is curated and contextualised, it gains value and usefulness.

Curation natural drivers

Content curation is a natural solution to resource abundance.

Some people voluntarily curate content for the direct purpose of producing better and more satisfying results, saving time, appearing more authoritative or gaining more customers.

Information curators are personally interested in what they do, and curating is a reliable way to learn about their resources, uncover true gems, and organise them in a meaningful way.

  • It takes more competence, experience and skill than writing.
  • You need to be a subject matter expert.
  • You need to immerse yourself completely into a subject.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
