Evernote in education

BiLQt8ICQAAcpC1Today I learnt about Evernote. I have been using it on and off for a while, but I was aware that I was not using its full functionality. So I attended a free #evernotemeetup, organised by Bec Spink. I came away with many new ideas and I feel inspired to organise myself better. I look forward to using Evernote  in the classroom and in my personal life.

Ways to use Evernote in the classroom:

  • Create a notebook for each student, keep track of all notes and correspondence etc
  • As a digital portfolio, take photos and upload students’ work
  • Students upload their homework to a shared notebook
  • Work with teachers on projects
  • Students can use Evernote for research projects
  • Perfect iPad integration, kids organise their own schoolwork in Evernote
  • See this site: http://evernote.com/teachers/

Using Evernote in Personal / Professional life:

  • Scan paper or take photos of documents. Live paperless. You can use the inbuilt Evernote Document Camera or a purpose built scanner apps (Info here)
  • Tag every note and use it to organise your tasks. Great ideas here: http://www.thesecretweapon.org/

I know I’m only scratching the surface with this powerful tool, I’ll share more when I discover more.
