Zhang Meilan's curator insight, February 21, 2013 2:31 AM

研究活动涉及到的工作包括:处理大量的信息和数据,有效地管理时间等。本文讲的五个步骤主要是利用思维导图和书签两种工具来处理上述工作。


这五个步骤是:

1.使用书签工具,建立研究内容信息库和数据库,书签可以提供文献的链接、图片以及文本内容。

2.从书签中创建思维导图。利用书签汇聚的信息,创建成一个视觉化的非线性的思维导图。

3.把书签进行分类。利用思维导图,根据你的研究目的、目标和结构对内容进行分类,以便于对资源的组织、管理,让内容符合逻辑,研究工作变得有趣。

4.思维导图为研究总结建立完善的布局结构。围绕相关主题,选择合适的思维导图布局,完善内容结构。

5.用思维导图为研究项目设定最后期限。这一步至关重要,可以让你一直专注于研究,了解自己的极限,并寻找自己的优势。
