The job of the humanities academic has always been to absorb large amounts of content, evaluate it, synthesize it, and portray the results in a way that will be relevant and engaging to an audience...

Vance Stevens's curator insight, January 18, 2013 1:47 AM

My workflow is a bit different from the one suggested here.  I was checking http://paper.li/tag/evomlit and I saw from the Twitter feed there that Vanessa Vaile had highly recommended this post, so I read it and scooped it.

 

In this post, Allan Johnson explain how he applies the rule of 30% "chatter" in his Twitter feeds and 70% "content" by using "a good RSS reader, a read-it-later app, a tweet scheduling app, and a tweeting time calculator." With these tools he filters his always-on tweet stream into stuff he can read in two minutes but "pocket" items requiring deeper reading to a set time on Sunday devoted to that. He then uses a tool to know when his PLN is most active to activate another tool to schedule delivery of his tweets on "content" at optimal times throughout the week. Johnson illustrates his workflow with clear diagrams and says, regarding these tools, "I like the ones that I use precisely because of their elegant and seamless integration.  With this set up in place, it means that I have plenty of time to do what no app ever can: thinking about the ideas I have found."

What a helpful little article for those trying to create a PLN or facilitate one! I always feel overwhellmed by the sheer amount of content on twitter, and the number is digital tools. I want to tweet out to my students regularly, but I don't get on enough and then I feel like I tweet out in batches...which is probably annoying. This article, complete with infographic, helps explain how to manage this content overload. It also gives specific tools to use and a strategy. This is how I like my PD: quick, clear & easily applicable. I want something I can try immediately. And this I will!
