Inspired by Jeannine St Amand‘s post on Google+ about coping with information overload I have created a mindmap based on Harold Jarche’s model: ‘Seek, Make Sense, Share’: see video here which maps how I (intend to) collect and curate articles that interest me.
Producing this mindmap has proved useful. Apart from anything else, I have discovered the Buffer and Pocket tools, and resurrected my Scoop.it account. However, I have also realised that, although I’ve been doing a lot of ‘seeking’ and ‘sharing’, I have not been doing an awful lot of ‘sense making’, which is arguably the most valuable step in any learning process.
The ‘sense making’ bit should come about by reflection via blog posts. So my objective this week will be to seek, share and make sense of the content by posting a blog post at the end of the week.
