Pedagogical Ideas

In the classroom, Evernote can be used in a variety of ways. Some ideas include the following:

  • Modern Researchers - Students use Evernote to write research papers. They save resources in Evernote as they find them. The resources are at their fingertips when they start writing the paper.
  • Classroom Notes - Students use Evernote to capture images, text, and web sites that are discussed in class. They can review the information with certainty instead of fumbling around for the sources.
  • Administrator Exclusive: Meeting Preparation - Use Evernote instead of a paper list to store important new briefs and other information to present to the monthly Board meeting. Evernote allows you to save text, images, and even entire web pages.
