App / Tool of the Week - Evernote ....
I love that I can have Notebooks. I think of the Notebooks like a filing cabinet drawer. I can break down a notebook even more by adding more notebooks to the 1st one. For example I have a notebook labeled Summer PD. In that notebook I have created a notebook for each conference I have attended. Within each conference notebook I have a note for each session, I have also tagged each session. Say I attended a session on creating student blogs one of the tags I would assign it is blog. This way I can do a search for blogs and everything I have tagged blog will show up in the search not matter what notebook I have assigned it to.
Evernote also has a Web Clipper. You can capture parts of a website and import them onto a note within Evernote. You can also add audio, images, websites, and other resources to your notes.
Here are some ideas you can use Evernote for:
- Note taking
- Collaboration Tool
- Saving Websites
- Sharing Resources
- Trip Planning
- Shopping Lists
- Reminders a.k.a Sticky Notes
- Store Documents
- Record Audio
- Capture and share images
- Manage a Paperless office or classroom
Evernote has some really good video clips in YouTube. They also have some other great tools that work with Evernote that I am still learning about.
