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]Twitter: @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 ...
