How to Create Workflow: From Diigo Bookmarks to WordPress Blog Post.
I am using Diigo’s automatic blogging. It is a fairly frictionless workflow although I have discovered that I must leave the post “uncategorized” or it will publish as gibberish of some sort. Here is a screencast on how I do this.
Access Internet Through Email, Get Webpages on Demand in your Email Inbox – find stock quotes, weather forecast, currency exchange rates, upload documents, convert PDF documents, share photos and read websites without internet.

Those are the words that mark the post that anyone who is interested in curation needs to read and build upon. I return to Robin Good's words as a compass to my curatorial life. I hope he continues to revise them as he progresses down his own curatorial road.
I have gotten a little weary of list posts of late, but this one reminds me how good they can be. This one pulls together many different ways to 'run a meeting'. Of course the tools the author cites are helpful but some of them are delightfully subversive of the concept of the meeting. The meeting as a standalone administrative object could stand for a serious transition toward the tools in this list.
My colleagues and I will be meeting today for about four hours to discuss our department's plan for the year. When these meetings are over I rarely remind myself of the plan or plans that we will be trying to follow except insofar as they have an effect on me and mine. But we are a whole organization, too, one that would benefit from all of us giving it some thought throughout the year.
So we will be using a hashtag and some flickr postings and some YouTubes and some texting and some paper.li and some space where all of this is accessible after the meeting to remind ourselves of what we are trying to do and to share it with absent colleagues and those who have a stake in what we are proposing.
Have any of you ever tried this idea--the solution map. For some folks an approach like this acts as a knife to life's Gordian tangles. Hard to say whether the game is worth the candle, but the approach might get you going forward and through a difficult project or at least part of it. I am going to try to work my way through at least one problem: how would I organize a book proposal? I will let you know how it helps me manage that pile of fishing line.
"Ever suffered from confusion around a personal or business issue? It's difficult to think clearly and find solutions easily when you're overloaded with complex and contradicting information. A puzzle with just too many pieces is quite confusing."
Etherpad meets wiki. Yeah, that really works. I have been using it to share initial impressions, questions, and requests from the folks at Vialogue. Here is the link to that if you want to see a hackpad in use: https://hackpad.com/THIQHze4Mwg#Vialogues
This is serious digital workflow developed through serious work by a serious person. Seriously. I think I could spend weeks with this one post, but if I had to choose one item it would be "Write and Cluster Small Texts". Clicking on the orange links hyperlinks the whole affair open and you begin to realize what a huge document this is. It is a book masquerading as a post. God bless Turkel. This is grand.
A Workflow for Digital Research Using Off-the-Shelf Tools Knowing how to program is crucial for doing advanced research with digital sources. There are still many powerful tools that you can make...
"On Thursday, June 7, 2012, the Center for Research on Learning and Technology at Indiana University in conjunction with the Monroe County Public Library (MCPL) in Bloomington, IN put on a Hackjam for resident youth. The six hour event was a huge success. Students were excited and engaged throughout the day as they used Hackasaurus’ web editing tool X-Ray Goggles to “hack” Bloomington’s Herald Times. The hackers learned some HTML & CSS, developed some web literacies, and learned about writing in different new media contexts. We did some cool new stuff that we think others will find useful and interesting. We are going to summarize what we did in this post. We will elaborate on some of these features in subsequent posts, and try to keep this one short and readable."
Well done Mozilla and CRLT at IU. Six hours of how to model authentic learning. Libraries are the new school. Truly.
One way to find out about tech pedagogy is to look for folks who went to conferences and took notes. This is a great example. Wendy Wickham took extensive and understandable jots about Dan Quigley's 'rogue professor' model at IEL2012
Gem: "Empowerment is a deceptive word. It is meant to capture a sense of an individual’s control over her own life, of her ability to make choices. But it also often contains a sense of passivity: a hint that power is being granted to individuals, handed over to them like a bag of grain. [...] In fact, true power is not about handouts or handovers. It is about eliminating barriers –– such as ignorance, poverty or hunger –– so that individuals have the chance to achieve their potential."
Thorough treatment of how to set up your desk for uber productivity. I would like to see someone adapt this for teacher use. Best piece of advice so far is to treat your desk like the cockpit of a plane. So who will be my co-pilot and navigator?
Need to watch this very closely if you are a teacher who wants to know where social networking is headed. In this case it is destined for a far, far better place than it is now--decentralized, opensource, and can be accessed 'over a wireless mesh network and run as a Tor hidden service, unlike centralized social networks." I am dimly aware of what that means here (US) and elsewhere (Syria and places in revolution)
Mostly what this means is that you own your own stuff and that includes your relationships. If this takes off, you had better sell your Facebook stock.
Well...alright. I wait with bated breath their first version of this. I wonder how universities will handle this in their courses as students begin to share texts back and forth. Not well, I predict. Hurry. School starts in a week.
Welcome to booksorber.com - Convert your books to high-quality E-Books.
A highly useful wiki outline for anyone to learn how to use an iPad in the classroom. This makes me realize how many learning doors the iPad opens for learners of all stripes. If you follow their outine then at the end and probably working with a partner you will know navigate as well as download apps. You will explore ebooks and their creation. And as the infomercials shout, "Much,much more."
I like that you have basic stuff and 'extra challenges' very similar to the recent Google Search MOOC.
One person's take on 'reading workflow' in the digital landscape. Compare it to your own workflow. Get ideas. Share workflow with others. Perhaps you could have an unconference wherever you are about how you go about doing some of the most routine yet idiosyncratic mental activities of all--reading.
And this is the first place to come to after you have decided to do a cooperative curation site. Although this post is focused on a journalistic team, I think that we could use almost every aspect of this to begin work on the topic of digital curation in education. I am very excited about this prospect. I think similar curation could be done on Diigo, but Scoop.it seems to have less friction between the information and the curation. Welcome!
They say: Print this app out , fold it into a book, and put it in your wallet.
I say: Do what they say. Kaizen is the only way through the insurmountable problem and that is the underlying principle behind the hipster DIY self-help of this. Derived from the old Pocketmod tool online and still quite useful. An edupunk tool of the first water.
