How I Use It
I used Evernote in a small group setting first to introduce a new way to take and keep track of notes. It works well since student always have their notes with them, although it can be tricky is students are slow typers. They can also attach many other items to their notes, like pictures, which allows for more engagement then just text.
My Take
This product is a great tool to teach students about organization. Students are able to make folders and notes where they store content digitally. This can be accessed from mobile devices and desktop computers. Students no longer have "lost" papers or notes in their locker, bookbag, other class, etc.
