7 Time-Proven Strategies for Dealing With Information Overload

7 Time-Proven Strategies for Dealing With Information Overload | Agile Learning |

This helpful list of info-overload strategies includes the good and bad effects a single approach.  It's from Fast Co. and a curation connoisseur. 

I've found Google apps use of priority mail VERY useful and just about 90-95% spot on in showing me what's important in my email onslaught.

A coach and/or good use of assessment tools and your own, tuned self-awareness will help you decide which from Fast Company's list is most important to you right now.  

The examples give a flavor of what's at stake.

~  Deb

Excerpted, Fast Co:

The advice is from 1962 study and has been updated for today's daily battle with digital overload.   The techniques are very much still valid.

1. Omission – can’t consume everything, so just ignore some. ...a bit dangerous since some of the omitted information might be the most critical. 

2. Error – Respond to information without giving due consideration. ...without thinking through all the consequences 

3. Queuing – Putting information aside until there is time catch up later. An example is processing email early in the morning, before the business day begins, or reading important reports late at night.

4. Filtering – ...employs a priority scheme for processing some information while ignoring others. Automated tools are particularly well suited to help filter information.

Great Content Curation Models: E-learning Examples by David Anderson

Great Content Curation Models: E-learning Examples by David Anderson | Agile Learning |

Here's another helpful curation example reviewed by Robin Good, curation meister, featuring the areas of "multimedia journalism", "infographics" and "html5" among others.


The author in Elearning Examples has written and edited a specific information card with images and links to the work being referenced.


The design of the site and the quality  examples showcased highlight what good "content curation" is. 


See if you agree:  no noise or regurgitation of information, rather sense-making on the topic.


David Anderson is an e-learning designer & community manager at Articulate who has curated this set of galleries.


Inspiring. 9/10
