Using Digital Organizers as Personal Knowledge Libraries

Location: Senior Learners, Inc.

Course Description: Most of us are constantly collecting bits and pieces of information that we find interesting and useful. We find something useful and file it in our brain, or maybe write it on a piece of paper and put it in a stack with all the other bits of useful knowledge. Then, three weeks, or three months later we need this bit of knowledge, but we not only cannot remember it but cannot even find the piece of paper. There is a better way. Start creating your own Personal Knowledge Library (PKL).

A PKL can become your long-term memory assistant. You might even call it your personal Wikipedia (or a personal Encyclopedia Brittanica). This workshop will help you get started building your PKL, what software to use, provide organizing tips, and suggest things to include. You will be given templates for user guides and equipment manuals, trip planning, and an inventory of all your digital assets.
