App of the Week #3: Evernote


What is it?

Evernote is a note-taking app, with the ability to organise notes into notebooks and add tags to make your notes searchable for keywords.

Why should I download it?

Evernote allows you to create notes using editable text, as well as inserting photos,videos and audio files. Creating notebooks for each student allows you to keep anecdotal notes, as well as audio/visual evidence, all in one easy to find place. It is also a Web 2.0 program, able to be downloaded to your desktop for easy use. Syncing notes between your PC and iPad is easy.

What do I use it for?

Evernote can be used for anecdotal student notes, meeting notes, PD experiences and more. Evernote even has it’s own email system, meaning you can email notes to and from your notebooks. Taking a photo of a presenter’s presentation is far more efficient than trying to scribble everything down in a hurry. Adding a ‘tag’, or a category to each note makes it easy to locate certain topics in your notes.
