A Complete Guide to Evernote

A Complete Guide to Evernote | Content creation for learning and teaching | Scoop.it
If you've never heard me talk about Evernote, we probably haven't talked much. Evernote is my all time favorite tool for every aspect of my life. I use it for my personal life, this blog, my job, my freelance clients and everything in between. The problem with Evernote is that it can do SO much, it's very easy to get overwhelmed when starting out. My goal is to help you understand Evernote so that you'll use it and love it.

I've been using Evernote for close to 3 years now. It's one of the few programs I always have open on my computer. It's also the app I use most on my phone. I used to be a huge fan of notebooks (I still am), Evernote just lets me save those notes, search them and tag them. If you're a student, business owner, blogger, mom or planning any kind of event, Evernote will be useful to you.

How a robot, app, and the cloud are bringing video learning into classrooms - Daily Genius | Content creation for learning and teaching | Scoop.it
Using video in the classroom to impact learning is a popular trend used by many educators across all grade levels and subjects. From flipped classroom practitioners to Khan Academy enthusiasts, countless teachers around the world agree that video learning is a pedagogical tool with a lot of potential. Swivl, a promising and robust video creation platform, promises to disrupt traditional video instruction and change the way educators record, manage, and share instructional videos with their students.

Another idea of using Book Creator - June 2014 Blog Post

Another idea of using Book Creator - June 2014 Blog Post | Content creation for learning and teaching | Scoop.it

I am going to start this month's blog post by thanking everyone for the great feedback to iPad Teacher Guide (2nd Edition) and for making it the Number 1 Education book on the iBook Store in the UK, Australia, USA and Canada. For more information, visit www.ipadteacherguide.co.uk

 

 I know many of you are using Book Creator in your lessons and there has been countless blogs about it, including quite a few posts within this blog. One idea that did not make it into the latest version of the book is adding questions with audio feedback into Book Creator. I find I am using Book Creator more and more to create resources for my pupils and I am now putting questions at the end of each section. I write a multiple choice question, place 3-4 possible answers in as either text, photos or both then add an audio response to each one. For example, saying it is right or giving clues when it is wrong. Book Creator allows you to hide a audio clip so that pupils can tap the answer and hear the response. The audio icon completely disappears when you open the book in IBooks. This has worked the other way with pupils writing their questions at the end of their topic books and sharing with their peers.
