22: Rewind Episode - Capture, Configure, Control

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 innovationGeneral MagicLove Notes to NewtonPodcast hosting optionsCastos: https://www.castos.com PodBean: https://www.podbean.com Simple Cast: https://simplecast.comCaptivate: https://www.captivate.fm/podcast/ Buzzprout: https://www.buzzsprout.com Anchor: https://anchor.fm News ArticlesWashington Post - “The education technology students will need — and won’t — after coronavirus”: https://www.washingtonpost.com/education/2020/08/06/education-technology-students-will-need-wont-after-covid-19/ Huff Post - “Private Businesses Could Host Some Alberta Students' Remote Learning This Year”: https://www.huffingtonpost.ca/entry/private-remote-learning-alberta_ca_5f344abac5b64cc99fe1ab76 Clayton Christensen’s Book on InnovationInnovator’s Dilemma: https://amzn.to/34OWGRt Competing Against Luck: https://amzn.to/31JL1Bg How will you Measure your Life: https://amzn.to/31IXC7N Tech Tip: Note-Taking AppsWeb-based AppsGoogle Keep: https://keep.google.com Evernote: https://evernote.com Roam: https://roamresearch.com Desktop and mobile appsApple Notes: https://support.apple.com/en-ca/guide/notes/welcome/maciA Writer: https://ia.net/writerStylus based appsNotability: https://www.gingerlabs.comGood Notes: https://www.goodnotes.comMicrosoft OneNote: https://www.onenote.com/signin?wdorigin=ondcPrivacy-focused apps (https://www.privacytools.io/software/notebooks/)Joplin: https://joplinapp.org Standard Notes: https://standardnotes.org Paper notebooks and pens Rhodia Webbie notebook: https://amzn.to/2EPidyn Leuchtturm 1917 notebook: https://amzn.to/3jAvjif Uni-Ball Jetstream Pen: https://amzn.to/32XbbjJ Scanner AppsScanner Pro: https://readdle.com/scannerproAdobe Scan: https://acrobat.adobe.com/ca/en/mobile/scanner-app.htmlMicrosoft Office Lens: https://www.microsoft.com/en-ca/p/office-lens/9wzdncrfj3t8?activetab=pivot:overviewtabTech Tip: Data Backup Strategies3-2-1 backup strategy Leo Laporte TWiT - https://twit.tv/shows/twit-bits/episodes/3019 Local backup toolsWestern Digital Black Hard Drive: https://amzn.to/2YRezep Western Digital Red Hard Drive: https://amzn.to/31HcyDA Western Digital Black 5TB P10 Portable External Hard Drive: https://amzn.to/3bl66VZ Western Digital Black 12TB P10 Portable External Hard Drive: https://amzn.to/3gNej6z Sabrent USB 3.0 to SATA External Hard Drive Lay-Flat Docking Station: https://amzn.to/31IGf7a Samsung T5 Portable SSD - 500GB: https://amzn.to/2Gfk942 SanDisk 1TB Extreme Portable External SSD: https://amzn.to/2EUxq0Z Western Digital Black 1TB NVMe SSD Drive: https://amzn.to/3jxJ3tS ASUS ROG NVMe SSD Enclosure: https://amzn.to/32Kz7GG Automated backup softwareApple time machine guide: https://support.apple.com/en-ca/HT201250 Super Duper (macOS): https://www.shirt-pocket.com  Off-site cloud storageCarbonite: https://www.carbonite.com BackBlaze: https://www.backblaze.com CONTACT:Website: edtechexamined.comEmail: hey@edtechexamined.comTwitter: @EdTechExaminedTEAM INFORMATION:Erik Christiansen, Co-Founder & Co-HostWebsite: erikchristiansen.netTwitter: @egchristiansenBlog: tech-bytes.netKris Hans, Co-Founder & Co-HostWebsite: krishans.caTwitter:  @KrisHansMarket Grade: marketgrade.comChristopher Hoang, Audio Producer & Sound EngineerWebsite: chrishoang.ca
