Round 2 - Thing 5

The final "thing" for this project was to explore Evernote. I really loved it! I've downloaded the app for my phone as well. Basically, Evernote allows you to organize websites, pictures, videos, etc. all in one place. It's a fantastic research tool! Also, it saves paper because you don't have to print all your sources. Simply highlight part of a website, right click, and save to Evernote. Once in Evernote, you can organize into specific folders. This would be awesome for students to use. So many classes have research projects attached to them, and students can save all their information and sync it with their cell phone app so they can access it at any time. If we can have Evernote installed on all the computers in the school, I think it would really be the next step to making our school paperless!

  1. Kristi,
    I'm glad you like Evernote-- I really like it, too! It takes a while to get into the habit of saving everything there, but once you do it is so helpful. I would love to see students using it-- maybe somebody will try it next year!
