5 Apps for Note Taking | Top iPad Apps & Tools | Scoop.it

Now that more and more classrooms are becoming digital it seems there’s a market for note taking apps over writing long hand.

Students are living their lives through computers and tablets, so it only makes sense to eliminate the bulk of paper notebooks from their backpacks in favor of their multi­purpose tablet. These 5 note taking apps go above and beyond the default notepad and make retaining information from the classroom both fun and extremely organized.
