34: Zettelkasten

In this episode, Erik discusses his secret summer project - implementing a new note-taking strategy. Erik discusses the zettelkasten (German for "slip box") note-taking method which is a bidirectional note-taking system designed to overcome writer’s block or “the blank page effect.” This system could be useful for a student or instructor who struggles getting started writing, or anyone who wants a new way to connect the notes they’ve taken. Zettelkasten is like your second brain.SHOW NOTESZettelkasten method*Wikipedia*Zettelkasten.de*The ultimate guideTools for implementation*Bidirectional note-taking apps*Zettelkasten using Notion*Zettelkasten using Obsidian EDTECH EXAMINED CONTACT:Website: edtechexamined.comEmail: [email protected]: @EdTechExaminedTEAM INFORMATIONErik Christiansen, Co-Founder & Co-HostWebsite: erikchristiansen.net Twitter: @egchristiansenBlog: tech-bytes.netKris Hans, Co-Founder & Co-HostWebsite: krishans.caTwitter:  @KrisHansMarket Grade: marketgrade.comChristopher Hoang, Audio Producer & Sound EngineerWebsite: chrishoang.ca ...

40: 2022 Forecast

In this episode, Erik and Kris reflect on their 2021 education predictions to see what they got right and wrong. We'd like to give a big shout-out to our Audio Producer Chris Hoang who helped us develop this list for 2021. Our co-hosts also revised the forecast list for 2022. SHOW NOTES:2022 Forecast More EdTech Unicorns. Technology exposes socioeconomic fragility. Big Brother and academic integrity continue to be a problem Increase in digital (particularly OER) textbooks that include multimedia. Live updating of books or “living books.” More pressure for instructors to develop their own material (OER) with minimal financial support. Alternative accreditations grow in popularity. Institutional closures, or at the very least a shrinking in institutional size.
