Ideas on how to use Evernote

  • for students to keep notes on (then accessible from any device and can be shared with teacher)
  • for teacher to provide feedback to student (take picture or upload file and then provide an audio recording or written feedback)
  • for students to provide feedback to each other
  • to share materials with entire class
  • for students to store and collect material or research collaboratively
  • archive twitter feeds using ifttt.com (example: I use ifttt.com to take all tweets with hashtag #gr9sci and put into an Evernote note so that students who do not use twitter can access and view as well. I also take all tweets from Chris Hadfield, Canadian Space Agency and NASA and put them into an Evernote)
