Workflowy is a great web tool that helps organize tasks, thoughts, and anything else. As a devoted user, I really attest to the app’s tag-line: organize your brain. In the explanatory video, the narrator claims, “it will change the way you think”. Sadly, that doesn’t feel a reach for me, either. If you are a list maker, I would highly recommend checking out the videos below. The first is cheesy, the second is a little more informative. If you are not a list person, I would become one.
Project Based Learning: Workflowy is extremely useful in any settings, but can really help organize projects. Each line can include tags and categories, allowing you to prioritize individual tasks across projects. You can also include others on your list with their handle (@Tim), which can be very useful for group or shared tasks. This is useful for students, but could also be useful if you need to collaborate with other staff often, as shared tasks would show up on both lists. Finally, as it is web-based, you no longer have to bring home the list every day, or, more commonly, rewrite it again every morning.
I’m going to go cross “Add Workflowy” off my list right now! So satisfying. (they even have an option to leave the item on the list, but with a line through it. oh yes.)
