How I Use It
Evernote is my (and some of my students) binder in the sky. It helps users organize their digital life. For the students who choose to use it (I do not force them to, they can choose what works for them) they like having their work in one place, the ability to find it quickly and on any device they have at the time. Apps like Evernote are not for everyone, it can appear to be a little chaotic to some while others love it.
I have not used Evernote as a teaching tool, I encourage students to use it as an organizational tool. Organization, digital or otherwise is different for everyone, so Evernote is not a solution that every student will like but for some it works great.
