I can’t believe it’s Wednesday again already – where does the time go? Let me just state up front that this week’s post is MUCH shorter than normal – no cheering, please! I was at AETC last week; I am co-presenting at NATC this week; and I am leaving Friday for ISTE. Thank goodness for long, restful summer breaks, right?!?
This week we’re going to look at Evernote. Evernote is a great free online tool that helps you keep track of notes as well as information that you find online. You can install it on any computer you use as well as your smart phones, iPads, etc. Here is a quick, one minute introduction to Evernote.
Here is a short article that lists 7 reasons why you will love Evernote. This blog article lists 10 ways that students can use Evernote in school. And, finally, here is a resource site for using Evernote in education.
Try Evernote out by signing up for a free account. Click on the Create Account link at the top right hand of the page. On the next page, fill in the required information and click on the Register button. Play around with it and see what it can do. If you decide that you like it or want to explore more, download it to your computer(s) and/or smart devices and start syncing your notes!
