How I Use It
My seniors use it to keep track of account information, scholarships, research, and personal data. I encourage them to use Evernote to record their progress as we start new projects, and to collaborate by sharing folders and notes with each other. When I took students on a trip to Europe this summer, I used Evernote to record my journal of the experience, and was able to instantly record audio and embed photos and video clips into the app. When I returned to class, I was able to share the experience with my students in the classroom by sharing my Evernote multimedia journal with them. This is an excellent tool for personal information management. Although it provides much the same cross-platform availability as Google Drive, which I also employ, I find that I like Evernote because it's suitable for taking notes quickly, with a quick loading time. I also like the fact that I can easily embed audio and visual elements directly into the post.
I use Evernote to help students build their own personal data organizer. I also use it personally, in order to take notes and keep track of important information on my phone, tablet and from any computer with internet access. It keeps all my files organized and available at anytime.
