How I Use It
I create notebooks with worksheets, journal entries and discussion-based lessons and send them to my students. Students then import the notebook and work independently on their notebook while I oversee their work. I have also had student collaborate on notebooks while reading a novel. Lastly, I have had all of my students use Evernote to create personal portfolios of their work, showcasing some of their best work in academics, arts and athletics. It is my hope that students will keep this portfolio as a part of their academic career, constantly adding to the portfolio.
I love using Evernote as a teaching tool - it is a great platform for organizing student work into notebooks and further organizing it into notes. There is a wonderful function for tagging items, making it easy to search for work. This program has allowed for students to create very professional-looking portfolios of their academic, athletic and artistic pursuits. It also allows for them to manage various subjects, to-do lists, etc. One thing that could help better is to have a lower cost for a premium account, as most students do not want to pay for a premium account, which makes it difficult to share everything with others.
