9: Capture, Configure, Control

In 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 Work*Cal 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 your 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 strategies*Accidental 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 Innovation*Innovator’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 tools*Western 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 (Please note that items preceded by a  *  are Amazon affiliate links)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
