I read a good post on the HBR blog network this morning, telling a dear colleague to put down the notebook and start using the tools that will get things done. Much the same can be said to our new intake of first-year students: leave the old exam pad at home, look beyond Word and PowerPoint and start using the tools that will help you to create and share good outputs. Setting up a proper online workflow will help you to keep track of resources, references and your notes. Please, no more excuses about lost flash drives or the dog eating your assignment. And you should start developing your online brand now.
I am making a couple of presentations about this next week and have made a Prezi with the highlights. Have a look at the EdTech Prezi here. I would love to get more inputs:
- Can you recommend more webtools or apps?
- What is the best way to set up an electronic workflow?
- Am I missing a resource for the personal learning network?
