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。


Thanks to Peter Mellow, and catspyjamasnz.

Curate Your Own Wiki-Guide with the Wikipedia Book Create Tool

Help:Books - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

There are almost no limits when creating books from Wikipedia content. A good book focuses on a certain topic and covers it as well as possible. A meaningful title helps other users to have the correct expectation regarding the content of a book.

Bettina Ascaino's curator insight, January 25, 2014 7:16 AM

Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Few people know that it is actually possible to curate Wikipedia content into custom print books or PDF / OpenDocument ebooks that contain exactly the content you want in the order you specify.

 

Once you are logged into Wikipedia you simply activate the Book Creator Tool and then, from that moment on, everytime you visit a Wikipedia page you can click and add it to your curated Wiki-Book.

 

There is also a dedicated wiki page where you can manage the pages you have collected and you can reorganized and sort them any way you want, eliminating the pages you don't need.

 

Unfortunately there is no integrated way to edit and further customize the content of those pages for your own use.

 

PDF versions are freely downloadable by anyone, print book versions are paid.

 

N.B.: The price for print books depends on the number of pages, starting with US$ 7.90 for books up to 100 pages. 10% of the gross sales price goes to the Wikimedia Foundation. Books are perfect bound, printed in the dimensions 8.5 inch x 5.5 inch (216 mm x 140 mm) and contain a table of contents, your chapters and articles, licensing information next to an index.

 

More info about printed versions: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Books/Frequently_Asked_Questions ;

 

Free to use.

MCLibrarianRMIT's curator insight, January 27, 2014 10:04 PM

It's worth keeping in mind that some 'publishers' try to sell books based entirely on Wikipedia content.

With the launch of XerteToolkits 2.0 it's now possible to bring benefits of rich interactive Xerte content to mobile devices. My favourite page types are the connectors (see sample http://tinyurl.com/jtdeg2) but the new flexible web page template is just brilliant - see link main Mitchellmedia link. Resize the browser, try it on your phone. See how it adapts. Any teacher with modest IT skills (eg PowerPoint, basic digital photos etc) can learn how to do this in half an hour. See next TechDis XerteFriday session on Flipping the Classroom - http://tinyurl.com/jtdeg3 and Xerte community site www.xerte.org.uk

The approach of Xerte offers the potential to provide students with opportunities to be more creative working with their tutors - it is easy to understand and teach. Students can be more digitally experienced practitioners by exploring the features available to them.
