6 Apps You Should Be Using with Evernote

6 Apps You Should Be Using with Evernote | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

By Med Kharbach

 

Mashable calls it a second brain, Evernote is a powerful productivity app that, I believe, every teacher should be using. I know you probably have heard and read a lot about it but that elephant logo is still sitting there lonely and unused. It is about time to tap into to and discover its marvels.

 

Evernote is definitely one of the apps I use everyday. It helps me stay organized and scales up my productivity. However, the app has even more to offer when used with other partner apps. These apps  are particularly useful in expanding Evernote functionality  and in providing you with a richer and organized experience.

 

Here is a round-up of the apps I curated for you and which you can use with your Evernote to tap into its education potential.

I really want to see the benifit of Evernote but I just don't. I think I need someone to sit down and talk me through it. Is it better on the web or as an app?
Jim Harmon's comment, June 3, 2013 4:07 PM
I use it almost exclusively as an app, and as a supplement to flashcards for my students. I also know some folks who use it to manage their budget and expenses, snapping photos of receipts, bills, etc...

Part 4… Creativity In The Digital Classroom… Amazing Web Sites... Are They In Your School? | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

“So many times we encourage students to be creative, but we don’t always provide an explanation nor assessment. I think it is important to provide a definition. You can see that Dictionary.com defines creativity as ‘the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination: the need for creativity in modern industry; creativity in the performing arts’.”

This is the last in a series of posts on Creativity in the Classroom, with a focus on websites that help promote creativity. Included in this post are:

* Arts Edge, a wonderful source from the Kennedy Arts Center that "offers free, standards-based teaching materials for use in and out of the classroom. It also offers professional development resources, student materials, and guidelines for arts-based instruction and assessment."

* Exploratorium - "a twenty-first-century learning laboratory, an eye-opening, always-changing, playful place to explore and tinker"

* Google Lit Trips - a great way to explore literature and Google Earth

* Odyssey of the Mind - "an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college."

* Diffen - a website that allows you to compare anything

An additional ten websites are listed that provide a range of online learning opportunities that help promote creativity!

5 Web 2.0 tools to record oral communication | More Spanish

5 Web 2.0 tools to record oral communication | More Spanish | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

By Sherry Amorocho

 

"Today I want to share my favorite five Web 2.0 tools to record oral communication in the classroom.The biggest shift in oral assessment for my class occurred because of the variety of web 2.0 tools that can be used to record students. I still believe the best way to practice the language is in person, with a partner or in small groups, but the best way to formally assess a large group of students (at the same time) or gauge their progress is by using the following tools. Each one will fulfill a different need."

 

Although written for the Spanish language classroom, the strategies described by Amorocho can be applied in many other settings as well. -JL
