As you might know, I’m fascinated by the work of Vincent van Gogh. He started his work in a village called Nuenen (pronounce: New-nan) and it happens to be that I live in that same village. It made me curious about how he managed to become such an extraordinary artist with hardly any type of formal training.
So, I started reading and researching his letters (he wrote over 800 letters!) with one question in mind: how did van Gogh create his own learning journey? I started going through his content, writing down my findings. I then filtered these findings and created a storyline with seven principles as answers to my question. It’s an example of content curation.
My next big content curation project is ongoing: my learning notes to support you to help people learn. This edition of the learning notes is dedicated to resources to help you curate content for learning. It includes the essentials of content curation, the difference between content dumping and content creation, curation tools, and other helpful content.
