Recently I rediscovered the excellent free planners by Charlie Gilkey at Productive Flourishing. You can find them here. I like breaking out the crayons, so had a ball colouring in the productivity heatmap!
Unsurprisingly, the most useful on a day-to-day basis is the daily planner which is certainly comprehensive but needed tweaking for my context. So below is my effort, for what it’s worth. I’ve only been using it for the last few days but, in conjunction with Google Calendar for weekly/monthly planning it’s been awesome.
I decided last week to sell my Sony Reader PRS-600 Touch and replace it with an Amazon Kindle. Why would I do that? After all, you can do things with the Sony that you can’t with the Kindle: ‘reflow’ PDFs, write notes using a stylus, add extra memory with the minimum of fuss? I’ll perhaps compare and contrast the Sony Reader and the Kindle in more depth another time, but suffice to say that the things that the Kindle can do – namely wirelessly sync, have access to other people’s annotations, and make notes using a keyboard – slightly edge out the Sony Reader for me.
I’m delighted to announce that the #movemeon (e-)book is now available! I’d like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of the contributors, but especially Stuart Ridout for his amazing help and design skills. 😀
A couple of days ago I was at an departmental ICT representatives’ meeting at school. Every problem that was flagged up seemed to me to be easily solved by an installation of Google Apps Education Edition:
Want to be able to provide staff/pupils with more than 10MB webspace? GMail offers over 6GB!
Want students to be able to start work at school and finish off at home? Try Google Docs!
Want departments to be able to quickly and easily create websites? Use Google Pages or Google Sites!
That evening I started putting together a proposal. As usual, I tweeted about what I was up to.
