Information Overload and More
A Learning LogI commend the Learning Log to all my blog readers (well, both of you). In a nutshell (to avoid even more information overload): -
1. Write up your learning experience
2. Record the source of learning and in this day and age, include a URL link
3. Write up your thoughts about what you have learned – do you agree with the source? Does the information have value? If yes, what kind of value? Do you need to explore more from other sources?
4. How and where will you use what you have learned?
Howard Rheingold introduced us to 'Crap Detection' and the need for curiosity. It's not only on the Internet that one needs to beware of 'crap'. We get enough of it from news agencies the world over. It struck me that because of 'crap' all of us need a mentor, whether young or old, rich or poor, we need to discuss what we are learning with someone else.
