Data Notebooks


Oodles of Tech Tips Tuesday: Evernote

As teachers we have to take a lot of notes. Make that a TON of notes! If you are fortunate enough to have an iPad or a smartphone, Evernote is a great app that allows you to take notes. Did I mention that it is also free????  I don't have an printer that I can print from my iPad with, so I have to print from my laptop.  At the beginning, I found it hard to work on the iPad, because then I'd have to email everything so that I could access it.

Well, in steps Evernote. Not only is there an app for that, but they also have a desktop version!! The best thing about this app is that it will sync everything together!! So, I can be taking notes from my iPad, and if I want to continue working on it later, or print something out, I can just login to the website, and everything will be there!! If necessary, I can check something on my phone really quick!

Here are some ways that I have used Evernote....I included shots from my laptop screen, but I took all of these notes with my iPad.

As you can see, it keeps everything with a date stamp, and there is even a search option.

I think that the coolest thing is that when you are using the app it allows you to take pictures!! I think this is my favorite feature!!

The pic above was taken in a session of our Back to School Elementary Conference. There were several slides that the presenters showed, and instead of breaking my hand trying to write everything down, I just took a picture of each slide. 

I think Evernote is a great way to begin taking notes electronically. I always see a lot of teachers who are new to the iPad, and they carry it around and they still have their pen and pad to take notes. I know it's tough, but try it!!

I had really planned to have some classroom pics today, but I was asked to do something by my principal and I didn't get anything done in my own room today, since I was doing that. Fingers crossed for tomorrow!!

Talk to you later!!
