This is a very simple to use tool. Ironically, I had learned more about it from the previous reviewer TeacherCast, Jeff Bradbury during one of his podcasts on Evernote, Tech Educator Show. Which can be found at teachercast.net. It’s a great simple to use tool that is only made better by some products that it integrates with including this like Skitch which allows for annotation right onto PDFs. The ability to add pictures and audio right within a note is invaluable not only for the teacher, but also as student as a means to collect digital artifacts that document learning. I would recommend this to a colleague.
There are so many different ways to utilize Evernote. Ironically, I learned many of these tips and suggestions for use through watching podcasts from teachercast.net who was the previous reviewer of this product. Evernote has a whole suite of products that further enhance the product beyond just taking notes. i.e. Skitch which allows markups to PDFs. The ability to add a picture or audio right within the notes allows for students to be able to build a digital portfolio that can be used to showcase learning. One of the big features of this product is its search capabilities.
I would recommend the use of this product to a colleague.
