Tip 54: Set up your learning toolbox
'Learning is work and work is learning'.
In this digitized world, you use digital tools for work every day, but have you ever really thought about how to use them efficiently for learning?
To manage your learning environment in the best way possible, I strongly recommend you to set up your own learning toolbox which should include a limited number of preferred tools and platforms in the following areas:
Upskilling: E.g. LinkedIn Learning, Coursera, Udemy, EdX, YouTube
Inspirations: E.g. TED Talks, Get Abstract
Search & find: E.g. Google, Ecosia
Taking learning notes: E.g. OneNote, Evernote
Networking: E.g. LinkedIn, Twitter
Synchronous social learning: E.g. Zoom, MS Teams
Creation: E.g. Powerpoint, Prezi, Powtoon, Articulate Rise
Learning transfer: E.g. Everskill
Collaboration: E.g. Trello, Miro, Mural
Sharing: E.g. Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive
