What's All the Fuss About Evernote? Should I Be Using It?

What's All the Fuss About Evernote? Should I Be Using It? | iPads in university lecturing | Scoop.it
Dear Lifehacker,
It seems like everyone is always raving about Evernote, but I don't really understand its appeal. Isn't it just a notes app that other apps do better or simpler? What's makes Evernote so great?

iPads in Primary Education: Changing the Pedagogy: Independent Learning in Science

iPads in Primary Education: Changing the Pedagogy: Independent Learning in Science | iPads in university lecturing | Scoop.it

"Pupils in year 6 have been using iPods since September on a 1:1 basis with a focus on using the technology to support learning, develop productivity, independence and impact on pupil progress across the curriculum. The devices haven’t been used for everything, but are available as a tool to enhance the learning for any given task. Alongside this there have also been frequent daily occasions when the best tool for the job has been: pencil and paper, scissors and glue, laptop and printer, a good book and silence. The role of the device was made clear to pupils, parents and staff at the beginning of the year and the planned outcome has always been to use the technology, if it was the best tool for the job to enhance learning."

This may be about year 6 students, but these are your future university students. An interesting read!

Evernote vs. Google Keep: Which Does More?

Evernote vs. Google Keep: Which Does More? | iPads in university lecturing | Scoop.it
Now that Google Keep is out, how does it compare against note taking juggernaut Evernote?

Via academiPad

academiPad's curator insight, April 18, 2013 6:08 PM

Oh no! Jst about as I move into Evernote to round off my information management worklow, Google comes out with Keep. Now what is the better one? This post puts Evernote and Google Keep to a head-to-head race, just to find that Evernote is the more mature app (surprise) whose feature set is richer at the moment. Now long-term Evernote's advantage will most likely be reduced, and with Google's power and wide reach, it is also conceivable that Google Keep will excel in what Evernote is great as well: pretty much every serious app and web service integrates with Evernote.

So longterm you should keep an eye on Google Keep, if you are willing to trust Google with your notebook. Thats the killer for me, as usual. I don't trust Google. I don't use Google Mail, Google Calendar, or Google Docs. I rather keep that separate from my searches and map inquiries, which I believe give enough away of me already.

 

That's why I continue exploring Evernote.

Do students in your classroom regularly create online “radio shows” to share information with parents and others? With more people than ever (over half of U.S. adults) owning smartphones capable of accessing Internet websites and playing digital audio files, classroom radio shows can potentially reach a larger percentage of your parents than ever.
