Basic Latin literacy never did anyone, any harm!

Google Translate has an English to Latin translator and try http://www.inrebus.com/latinmottogenerator.php to make your own mottos :) "Gallia est omnis divisa in partes tres" which is all I remember from high school Latin besides the classic "Veni,vidi, vici"!

I've Been Using Evernote All Wrong. Here's Why It's Actually Amazing | Lifehacker

I've Been Using Evernote All Wrong. Here's Why It's Actually Amazing | Lifehacker | Social Mediafication & PD | Scoop.it

By Whitson Gordon

 

"For years, I kept hearing how awesome Evernote was: how it could store everything you possibly needed, make it available everywhere, and how scores of people couldn't live without it. I tried it multiple times, and never saw the appeal until now. Here's what I was missing.

 

"Any time we talk about Evernote, a good number of you say the same thing: you've tried it time and time again, but you could never really "get into it." I was in the same camp, but after reading the other side's experiences in this article and its comments, I decided to give it another shot. If you're like I was and haven't yet experienced the greatness of Evernote, here are some things you should try.

The More You Add, the More Useful Evernote Becomes

"Let's start with the most important trick: In order to see why everyone likes Evernote, it's important to take advantage of everything it has to offer (rather than use it as just another note taker). Reader ppdd says it best:

 

"The key to Evernote is to commit to it and jump in with both feet. It's pretty rotten if you're just using it for a few isolated tasks, because absolutely, it doesn't do any one thing perfectly and it's not as fast as other apps.

 

"It really starts to show its brilliance once you start using it as your default bookmark/webclip app, notetaker, recipe box, repository of all your reference material, and so on. It's great to have ALL the information you need indexed and searchable across every single platform you have. I love opening it up in a meeting and recording the meeting audio right along with my typed notes on my iPad. If I miss something (entirely possible while pecking things out on a glass screen) I can always return to it after the meeting."

I've been using Evernote for about a year.  I'm still at the point the author describes in this piece.  I use it. But I'm not addicted.  Should I go all in and really see if I get hooked?

So many people are on Pinterest, that it only makes since that teachers and librarians try to use these resources. This article talks about how to use Pinterest to organize information, so that is can easily be found by students, and since it is through a site most teens use, its an engaging tool.
