Creating Order From Chaos: 9 Great Ideas For Managing Your Computer Files

Creating Order From Chaos: 9 Great Ideas For Managing Your Computer Files | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

It’s frustrating isn’t it when you can’t find that file? When you’ve searched every folder imaginable on your computer, and somehow it got lost….or worse, deleted. Now, there are excellent search tools for Windows that allow you to find your files, but they only work if you know the name of the file. And you don’t want to open up a program to find every file and folder that you need. It’s just nice to have things neat and easy to access whenever you need them.

 

I’ve put together a list of 9 things you can do to manage computer files and get the most out of your computer. Because that’s its purpose – to be moreuseful, not less useful. But computers are often more complicated in some ways when they’re not set up and used properly, which is essentially counterproductive.

If you're tired of searching your documents on your computer all day and want a system that will help you bring order to your files, then you should read this excellent post.

 

What I liked is that it is an article that contains all the information needed to have a clear and well organized system for the documents as well as safety tips with the various possibilities in the cloud.

 

An article truly comprehensive about this topic who deserves your attention.

Competencias Digitales

Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, February 3, 2013 4:04 PM

From very early in my life, possibly in my elementary school years, but certainly by the time I was in high school, I've felt that the age-based grouping of children for education was ineffective, holding some students back, while forcing others ahead before they were ready. Even without digital learning techniques, I believe that students, all students, benefit from a system that takes each individual's learning styles and needs into account, recognizing mastery (or competency, as it's referred to in this infographic) as the basis for placement in each subject. The advent of digital learning systems provides the means for making such a process easier and more cost-effective than ever before, and I hope that our schools, regardless of whether they are brick & mortar or via the Internet, will continue to explore ways to help every child learn in the way that works best for them.

Antonia Rudenstine's curator insight, July 27, 2015 4:57 PM

I don't think about competency in exactly this way...but this conversation is a fabulous one to be in.

Curating curation topic on Scoop.it

Curating curation topic on Scoop.it | Wiki_Universe | Scoop.it

Content curation tools are designed to assist the process of searching, collating and sharing existing content. Content curation differs from simple content aggregation in that curators screen for the most relevant content, and often edit or comment it.   By curating content on a topic close to them, brands can position themselves as a go-to expert on that topic and embed their communication into the richer context of external content sources.

 

Content curation tools are multiplying like wild mushrooms. Category leaders, like Pinterest, tumblr and Scoop.it are growing impressively fast. 

 

At the same time, other tools from social media, blogging and search, such as Twitter, Paper.li and Google are strengthening their curation functionality.

 

Observer (like me) are starting to make distinctions among subcategories like Search Curation (Topsy, Feedsquares), Video Curation (Magnify.net), Content Trends curation (Zemanta, Parse.ly), Corporate Curation (Curata, CurationSoft, Digimind), Content Relationships curation (Pearltrees, Mind.it).

 

The most popular category is Social Curation. Social Curation enables users to clip and publically share content (mostly pictures, graphics and video) in the form of attractive personalized mood boards (typical of Pinterest, Bundlr).

A more specialized form of Social content curation helps users turn twitter feeds into threaded stories (Storify, Dashter). 

We can expect much of the Pinterest-style social curation to turn into Shopping Curation à la OpenSky.

We can also expect the debate about content curation and copyright infringment to continue to rage. Attribution to the original source should be a fundamental requirement of Content Curation. But it can be difficult when content is re-"pinned" again and again. Scoop.it is one of the best tools in terms of facilitating content attribution.
