Grok and Korg

How do we all go about gathering information for an assignment related to research?

Ben Schlegel 

The process I took to research was looking through all of the databases that I have access too. I googled and searched the UAF digital catalog. I gathered my information looked everything over. I tried to distill everything into an easily readable length, put my own opinion into the post, and include a video that I thought had a great visualization method.

  1. Pick a topic I don’t know

  2. Find a basic definitions page

  3. Find an image that I think captures the essence of the initial article

  4. Begin surface analysis

  5. Verify and conduct a deep analysis

  6. Express the media and links that capture parts 2-5

  7. Create my own media to enhance the material

The process was fairly simple until I got to trying to insert the video I made on AdobeSpark into the post. I started simple by just google searching about CyberBullying and starting with the wikipedia definition and then started branching out from there. I visited several sites looking for similarities and differences between the sites. I listed all of the resources above that was used for creating my post! I am pretty old school. I wrote out my notes and saved my links as I found each site!

  1. I think I was the only one who mentioned something about making a sort of a “to do” checklist before getting started.  I like to know where I am going with a thing…
  2. I didn’t specify Google in my graphic, but Melody and I both used it.  Ben says he used databases (which I should probably do) and James doesn’t share where he does his analysis.
  3. Melody and I are the only ones who mentioned taking notes.  Like Melody, I am old school.
  4. James O was the only one who mentioned capturing media and/or creating his own.
  5. All of us organized and/or synthesized the information.

This is the launch of my masters journey!!

One thought on “Grok and Korg”

  1. This is really interesting. One reason I am a fan of enabling “over the shoulder” learning — literally, when possible, but otherwise through reflection and meta-thinking—is to shine a light on practices and learn from them. But it’s also a truism that we take many things for granted in our ways of learning and often don’t even think to note them down because we literally don’t think about them or because we just assume “everyone” already knows them. I am continually amazed at how often this is not the case!

    Where I get lost most often nowadays is in the synthesis … pretty much any topic, no matter how simple it seems, has hidden depths and deep rabbit holes to get lost in.
