22: Rewind Episode – Capture, Configure, Control EdTech Examined

PREAMBLE:Given our recent episodes have focused on productivity and behind-the-scenes recording secrets, my co-host Kris Hans and I wanted to highlight an older episode some of you might have missed. Episode #9 “Capture, Configure, Control,” was originally released on September 1st, 2020. In it, Kris and I discuss a variety of productivity hacks such as project management software, Cal Newport’s Deep Work Strategies, Todd Henry’s Accidental Creative, and Tony Buzan’s mind-mapping concept, podcast hosting, and some of our favourite note-taking apps. In fact, Episode #9 has been our most downloaded episode to date and we want to thank you for your support. We hope you enjoy this ‘rewind episode.’ Until next time…DESCRIPTIONIn this episode, Erik and Kris focus on productivity strategies for educators and students. They give their experience using project management software like Basecamp and Trello, do a deep dive on note-taking apps (for all platforms), and review Cal Newport’s concept of Deep Work and the strategies of Capture, Configure, and Control for taking control of your time. The co-hosts also discuss their experience so far with paid podcast hosting. They also talk about Andy Hargreaves’ critique of EdTech in the Washington Post and innovative social distancing strategies for k-12 students in Alberta.SHOW NOTESProject Management ToolsBasecamp: https://basecamp.comTrello: https://trello.com/home Cal Newport and Deep WorkCal Newport’s Deep Work: https://amzn.to/2EUX5He Overview of Deep Work (Medium): https://medium.com/@nina.semczuk/5-practices-from-deep-work-by-cal-newport-thatll-change-your-life-303847ec5f3cCal Newport Study Hacks Blog: https://www.calnewport.com/blog/  Cal Newport Podcast: https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/fleeing-collapsing-career-taking-notes-on-books-building/id1515786216?i=1000483167517 Cal Newport 3 practices for organizing and documenting your ideas and planning your time Capture – Get it down Configure – Describe the task in detail Control – Plan and execution of the task Other organization strategiesAccidental Creative by Todd Henry: https://amzn.to/3lEYORUMind Mapping by Tony Buzan: https://tonybuzan.com/  Documentaries on innovation<span class="Apple-conver
