Smartphones Don’t Make Us Dumb

Smartphones Don’t Make Us Dumb | Net Smart. How the internet is changing our brain | Scoop.it
AS much as we love our digital devices, many of us have an uneasy sense that they are destroying our attention spans. We skitter from app to app, seldom alighting for long. Our ability to concentrate is shot, right?

Research shows that our intuition is wrong. We can focus. But our sense that we can’t may not be a phantom. Paying attention requires not just ability but desire. Technology may snuff out our desire to focus.

A big part of infotention is simply recognizing the need to think about where your attention is going while you are online, and why, and how you can exert more control over it.

A Visual Guide To Slowing Down The Distracted Generation (Infographic) | Net Smart. How the internet is changing our brain | Scoop.it
I’m guilty. And I’m definitely too old to be considered part of the ‘distracted generation’. I didn’t grow up with a device in hand at all times, hopping from shiny thing to shiny thing on the internet. I use tools to help keep me from being distracted online. Distractions are all around with technology, and connecting …

Note-Taking Jujitsu, Or How I Make Sense Of What I Read

Note-Taking Jujitsu, Or How I Make Sense Of What I Read | Net Smart. How the internet is changing our brain | Scoop.it
So notes are important, we get that. But how do we use them to their utmost? How do we even gather them together and store them? How do we use them for our writing, for our thinking? These are all important questions which I don’t feel have been properly answered, and where those answers have been given, they’re buried or hidden somewhere out on the internet.

I want this post to get into the weeds about how to get your materials off a Kindle device, how to store it usefully on a Mac (my apologies, PC/Linux users), and how to repurpose those notes to be creative, to write, and to think.

Taking notes on digital texts is an issue. Diigo is great for highlighting texts and sharing your highlights,  leaving and responding to sticky notes on texts with those in your Diigo group. This article delves into extremedetail about note-taking, including Evernote, DevonThink, Tinderbox, and Kindle.
