Wunderlist and grad school

As I am wont to do at the start of a new semester, I totally upended my productivity routines a few weeks ago. The biggest change I’ve made is switching task managers: As much as I enjoy (and would still recommend!) HabitRPG, it wasn’t really working for me anymore. After briefly flirting with the idea of Wunderlist, a really nice, free, cross-platform task manager that I’ve tried in the past but never fully embraced.

When I switched to Wunderlist, I also rethought my overall approach to productivity and task managers, so I’ve been meaning to blog about that for a while. I finally got around to it, but I’ve decided to take a slightly different approach: Explain what I did through a Wunderlist public list.

This is a little wonky in the embedded frame, but if you click the title of the list, you can go to a webpage that makes things a little easier to read (plus gives you a peek at my home office).

The following two tabs change content below.
Hi there! My name is Spencer Greenhalgh, and I am a student in the Educational Psychology and Educational Technology doctoral program at Michigan State University. I came to Michigan State University with a strong belief in the importance of an education grounded in the humanities. As an undergraduate, I studied French and political science and worked as a teaching assistant in both fields. After graduation, I taught French, debate, and keyboarding in a Utah private school before coming to MSU, where I plan to study how technology can be used to help students connect the humanities with their lives. I have a particular interest in the use of games and simulations to promote ethical reasoning and explore moral dilemmas, but am eager to study any technology that can help students see the relevance of studying language, culture, history, and government.
