Implement Evernote iPad App in Your Classroom

There are a wide variety of ways to use Evernote iPad app in your iPad classroom Once you start using the Evernote app on your classroom iPads, you’ll think of even more to implement it in assignments and lectures. Here are just a few ideas for using Evernote in the classroom to get you going:

  • Taking class notes: Students can take class notes and organize them in notebooks for each subject. Even if they don’t take the iPads home, they can access their Evernote account and notes on any computer with an Internet connection.

  • Sharing notebooks for group work: Notebooks can be shared. Sharing a notebook is a great way for students to work collaboratively on a group project and share research and information.

  • Distributing content to class: Teachers can share a notebook with students. That’s a very simple way to distribute information to the class. Just create a note in the shared notebook and add the content, and it’s available for all students to open and access.

  • Submitting work to the teacher: Sending content via e-mail to your Evernote e-mail address is a fantastic way to easily create notes on an iPad. It can also be used creatively to create a class dropbox where students can submit work to a teacher.

    You can have each student add the teacher’s Evernote e-mail address to the Contacts on his or her iPad. Students then send their work to the teacher’s Evernote e-mail address, and bingo — it’s automatically filed as a new note in the teacher’s Evernote account.

    Also, by simply giving the e-mail address to students, you don’t give them any access to see or open any notes in the teacher’s Evernote account. It won’t guarantee that students submit their work on time, but each note will indicate the exact time each student submitted it.

    If you’re starting to feel a little cocky, why not set up a notebook in the teacher’s account for a specific homework assignment or project and have the students e-mail it right into that notebook?

  • Blogging: Get students to set up a notebook, and keep it as a writing journal or blog. They can share it with you so you can access it and add comments.

  • Practicing a foreign language: Use the recording feature in notes as a tool for students to record themselves practicing their foreign language skills. Es muy increible, no? Or something like that . . .

  • Reading and speaking: Use the recording feature in notes as a method for students to record themselves reading or speaking. Notes are kept as a way of gauging progress through the year.
