Thank you @schakwin for bringing @beck’s work to the community’s attention. And thanks to @beck for preparing this video series. She is a natural educator – these videos are engaging and highly informative. A few thoughts:
- Beck says her mode of using Tinderbox is “run with it and doing stuff” – i.e., learn by doing. That’s always been my advice to anyone starting with Tinderbox. Don’t fuss with the details – just start, and continue.
- She takes a long-term perspective of note-taking. E.g., it is progressive; the structure emerges over time; and the understanding of the notes emerges over time. I enjoyed her thought that the notes are “notes to a future self” and will have value for her over a very long arc.
- Beck’s maps are excellent, clearly evolving from her emerging understand of her notes and the subject matter of her research. She discusses using maps to “conceptualize visually, with notes (zettels).” Great advice.
I hope we hear much more from @beck over time.
