7 Ways to Boost Your Boost Your Sense-Making Skills

7 Ways to Boost Your Boost Your Sense-Making Skills | Content and Curation for Nonprofits | Scoop.it
Beth Kanter's insight:

This article is from 99u, a site  that is for and about being creative.   This article summarizes research on creativity and how to use it so you are more creative.    Creativity is part of a curator's thinking tools, so the advice in this article also works for improving your curation skills.


1.) Restrict yourself:   Don't use too many sources or look at too much information or for too much time.


2.)  Re-Conceptualize:    Describe an article or information resource for audience.


3.)  Separate Seeking from Sensing:   Making sense of what you find is different than the discovery part.  Don't try to do both at once


4.)  Use counterfactual thinking:   Ask what is missing or what if the advice was written in a different way.


5.)  Daydream after getting started:   Come back to a resource after you have thought about it for a while.


These points about creativity are all about mindsets.  What is your curation mindset?
