I found a few things that blew my mind today. Seriously!
I know a bit about Evernote but opening it for the first time can be confusing. I think it took me a year or two to figure it out. I would play with it and then uninstall only to repeat the whole process over.
Here are a few simple as pie posts that will help you understand the best app from a really great company. (They do state this is the next 100 year company. That is pretty impressive for a software company. I do not think Facebook will be around even half that time. Disagree? Think back to myspace.)
Many of us long for the days when there was a book we could hold in our hands that would describe the latest software tool. There is one for Evernote. The book is only $10. You can buy it and print it out.
100 Ways to Use Evernote - This may seem like a lot but it gave me many ideas that I had not thought of. There are a number of ways on how this will help you in your day to day life. I have used number 22 often. It is dead simple to take pictures of things that kids bring home from school. I save the image and tag it so I can find it later on. It is much easier than saving tons of paper. I can picture myself emailing them in 20 years with all these great memories.
This one is the most impressive. I have read about a few people using Evernote in the classroom for documenting reading conference notes but this one is amazing. I think you can use this idea in just about any subject. (Elementary teachers - this post talks about the Daily 5 and Cafe! Seriously!)
What is impressive is that this post was from 2010! (That is really about 1956 in computer years. Computer years are like dog years. I think I read that somewhere or I made it up. Not sure)
*Note: the post mentions an iPad. This is an app that can be installed on your laptop. No iPad needed.
There is even a LiveBinder for Evernote. It is pretty comprehensive and has many resources broken down into very specific sections.
So... We have a book you can download, posts to read and a video to watch. There is something for every style of learner.
Now here comes the interactive part. Anyone want to add some comments on how they are using Evernote?
