如何策展你所阅读的任何内容的简单学习过程:看奈尔笔记方法。

康奈尔笔记法将笔记本分为三栏:大区域的主栏、条目栏(线索栏)、总结栏。

记笔记方法为”5R's”法:

1.Record- 在主栏中,尽可能多地记录一些重要事实、思想、概念等。

2.Reduce,归纳- 在线索栏,将这些事实,思想和概念归纳概括为一个词汇、或一句短话。

3.Recite,背诵 - 利用线索栏的提示,尽可能全面、而非机械地,用你自己的语言复述你所记录的主栏中有关讲座内容的事实、思想,然后对照笔记确认你所讲的。

4.Reflect,反思 - 思考这些材料与课程、单元/被讨论的科目之间的关系,这部分内容卸载总结栏。

5.Review,总结 - 每周花10分钟快速回顾你的笔记,你将会记住你所学习的大部分内容。

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Information for Librarians | Scoop.it

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2010/7/31/top-ten-social-media-competencies-for-teachers.html ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.
