Incremental Reading advice required
I’m a fan of using incremental reading for reading non vital articles, the kind of articles in the some day maybe list on a GTD system. As a whole it a wonderfull principle, that does make reading more entertained, but if it is more productive than traditional reading or not I’m not quite sure.
I believe the issue of incremental reading has potential for life long learning, once we have a tool to do it. Even better now that thanks to contribution of ideas about multiple color formating by reader Marcin Rybacki multiple ideas can be easily differentiated by themes inside a single article.
SQ3R (Survey, questioning, reading, reviewing, repeating) technique is a good way to ensure that the global idea of text read is acknowledge and as well to learn its content. If it also meant a systematical way to review knowledge afterwards probably this post would not come trough.
A little step at the time, the principles that make incremental reading a better reading technique are being collected in my SuperMemo database of ideas, but one head thinking is very prone to misdirection an overspecialization.
For those of you that use the incremental reading techniques, what are the best principles you would recommend to improved it? Do you believe incremental reading can be used to processes other type of articles, besides the “some day maybe type”?.
For those that don’t use the technique, but have heard about it, which are the reasons you departed from applying it your learning processes?
