Digital Student Portfolios with Evernote

Hey guys, how's it going?

I know you're probably tired of hearing it, but I absolutely

love that commercial with the camel.....

Guess what day it is????  Guess what day it is?!?!?!?!

It's hump day, whoo-whoo!!!!!

It makes me laugh uncontrollably!!!!

Anywho, I've been thinking about ways to keep up with student portfolios,

along with anecdotal notes, whatever I would need for a conference, IEP Meeting, PST, etc. 

And I think I have discovered a way to do that with Evernote!! 

Awhile ago, I wrote about Evernote, you can find that post here.

This would be helpful in classes that have access to an iPad.

Anywho, Evernote is more than just a note-taking app, it can do so much more!!

Normally, when I write notes, I stay under the notes tab.

I found that you can also set up separate notebooks as well.

So, there are two ways that this can be done!!

Choice 1

Create a separate notebook for each student.

Then, in each student's notebook, you can create a separate note for basically 

anything that you can think about. 

Choice 2

Create 1 notebook.

Then create a note page for every student.

If you use this way, you would use one note for each child, 

placing all of the information that you need in that note.

I love them both, because you can also take pictures of whatever you need, 

and place it in the note as well. 

I'm torn on which one I should choose!!!!!

Which way do you like the best?

Oh, in other news, we have a winner for the quietest classroom pencil sharpener!!!

Congratulations Evette!!!!!!!


  1. Thank The Lord it is hump day! It's a short week and I'm already tired. Lol I apparently am behind the times on Evernote. I need to look into it though. I think I would prefer the first option just because it seems like you could do more with it. Thanks for the tip though. Something I will definately have to look in to.


Thanks for taking the time to drop a line!
