Google Keep

Google may be axing Reader, but that isn’t stopping the search giant from opening new doors on the web and in the cloud. As an expansion of its Dropbox rival, Google Drive, the search giant has launched an Evernote rival: Google Keep.

 

Like Evernote, Google Keep centers around quick note-taking – and the various bells and whistles that go along with that: including checklists, photo and voice notes, and annotations. The ability to color-code notes is a handy bonus, and adds to the app's aesthetic appeal.

 

In terms of raw function, there isn’t a lot to differentiate Keep from Evernote, but one big draw here is Google Drive integration. If you already use Drive for file syncing and word processing, your Keep notes will live in the same cloud, alongside your other content.

 

In addition to the web portal for Keep, Google has already pushed out anAndroid app. Keep for Android lets you drop a widget on your homescreen for ultra-quick note-taking. There’s even a lockscreen widget, to help you jot down your thoughts with the bare minimum of effort.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, March 21, 2013 11:46 PM

As educators, we need to teach about digital footprints and how they can impact our lives, both online and offline. Yet, can we sometimes inadvertently condone or not condone online attitudes. For example, it  can be difficult to avoid playing into the culture of public shaming that often occurs in social media. Perhaps the public shaming of individuals who have made poor online presence choices, generating “digital tattoos” as some have coined it (prints you are stuck with), is not the best way to instill an attitude of thoughtful dialogue and respect with regard to digital citizenship. After all, if public shaming becomes the norm, will society become immune to social consequences? Additionally, some may view a tattoo as a work of art or a sign of creativity. Instead, a willingness to listen, understand, help and support may set a better example. Through listening, we can create opportunities to help each other navigate this difficult digital world (a world that will undoubtedly see us make many more mistakes). Let’s listen; together we might just find balance!

Brad Ovenell-Carter's curator insight, March 22, 2013 2:10 PM

As you say Ana, this is a journey we (in schools) have to make together with students and their families. No one really knows where all this will land and every community will have different needs so the only possible way forward is through constant dialogue with all stakeholders. At my school, we're developing that conversation arounf the Brand of Me, something I think sounds more proactive that digital footprints or tattoos; those are things you leave behind, passively. See this discussion over on Bill Ferriter's blog: http://teacherleaders.typepad.com/the_tempered_radical/2013/03/guest-post-braddo-on-digital-footprints.html?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed:+the_tempered_radical+(The+Tempered+Radical)

Adapter can be as simple or as advanced as you want. You can keep things simple and stick to presets or tweak settings to your heart's content.
