Evernote in the classroom has always made perfect sense to us. With its flexible organization features, sharing capabilities, cross- platform synchronization and, of course, powerful search, Evernote is a well-suited tool for educators and students alike.
We recently had the opportunity to attend the NAIS Conference (National Association of Independent Schools) with with our new friends from IdeaPaint.
Over the course of the event we had dozens of teachers and administrators come up to our booth and share the ways they were putting Evernote to use at their schools. We heard from teachers who were using Evernote with their students, as well as administrators who were implementing large-scale deployments–much like The Montclair Kimberley Academy.
Alex Ragone, Director of Technology at Collegiate School in New York City
Alex Ragone dropped by and shared all the ways he and his students at the Collegiate School are using Evernote to remember everything:
“I love the ability to move between my laptop, iPad and Android phone. I put class rosters in Evernote so I can quickly pull up my attendance at the beginning of each class and use it to take notes in meetings all the time. I’ve also used Noteshelf to ink notes and sync them with Evernote, making them searchable. All of these great uses of your product simplify the process of storing information.”
Alex has also implemented Evernote on iPads at his school as part of a school-wide experiment. He’s written about his experiences and has also participated in an education-focused podcast called Ed TechTalk Webcast, hosted by Bill Stites. For more, follow Alex on Twitter and check out his blog.
