A Note Taking Adventure
Printing up hundreds of pages of notes to read, highlight and annotate is just a total waste of paper. I decided to read all the journal articles online – great idea! First step was to access the article, download the pdf files, read through and highlight the relevant headings, paragraphs, sentences, phrases. The trouble was that the highlighted sections were spread over 20 – 30 pages which was hard to flip through as a pdf. Not a problem – open a word document and cut paste – text jumping all over the page – create a table – looking organised now – save the file to my EER504 folder.
Repeat the process for the next article and then it’s time to review my learning so far. After half an hour of clicking from page to page, pdf to word and back again my idea did not seem such a great idea.
Do you know… sometimes the old ways ‘just work’ !
Just heading out into my garden to plant some trees – sorry world!
