How I Use It
I work with 2nd and 3rd grade ELL students in a pull-out setting. I had students take notes on a grammar lesson, and since they weren't very comfortable with technology, it would have been better to just have them take pencil and paper notes than use the Evernote App.
My Take
Personally, I like this app for note taking in meetings. I use it on my own iPad but honestly, I'm having trouble finding ways for students to use it in the classroom. Might be better with older students, but I struggled to find ways to make it meaningful and useful for the younger students.
