Attached File  EN.png   346.52KB   111 downloadsI teach second grade, and I use Evernote in SO many ways.

I only have one class, so I don't have to worry about 100 kids, --I started to utilize stacks. I have a stack of my class, with the student names in my "class" stack.

Since I teach 2nd grade, we use standards based grading. I scan so much work in, and Evernote is basically my grade book. I do this various ways---Whenever I scan work in (I use an Ipevo webcam or my iphone and the JotNot Pro app), it automatically goes to Evernote by using the import folder tool. This is great because I scan in work almost every day. The JotNot Pro is great when I have multiple pages that I want as 1 file.

Occasionally, I share a student folder with a parent or specialist if we are working together on a plan to help a student (eg. IEP, 504 plan)
Lesson plans-I have a "curriculum" stack, where I keep my subjects---many webclips and curriculum documents wind up there. Lot of times, I think of ideas for current or future lessons and they get sent here as well. Many times through the year, my kids are journaling, and I never was able to keep all my ideas in one place--now whenever I give a journal topic--I send it to "journaling".

Email--I love the way that I can send an email so that it goes to a specified folder---here is the link to do that -- email
Livescribe-wow- I use Livescribe pens in my classroom--I have a page for each student. Anytime I take a note, it updates my notes on that student. Instead of scanning, I can just have my student write on the paper for a quick assessment. (plus tons more ways...)

I use Twitter a lot for Professional Development and find a ton of ideas out there--I just needed a way to organize them. I just starting playing with IFTTT.com --I love it--I use this to get pictures from Instagram in EN, my favorites from Twitter in EN, articles that I save from Instapaper in there also. I wanted a 1 click way to get ideas from Twitter in EN, and favoriting them in Twitter or saving to Instapaper are the easiest. All you need are the recipes from IFTTT

I have a class blog, and I also use IFTTT to get any additions from it into my student stack on Evernote---works amazingly well--instead of having to go to my blog, it is in the one place I go to most--EN!

Also, sometimes I get emails that I know I need to keep (tax stuff, financials, etc)--I use my Evernote email so I get them in my default mailbox.
These are just some of the many ways I use it!

Great ideas. Thanks for sharing!

I teach a couple of classes and instead of notebooks I use tags for them. I've found Evernote a great way to have everything from my notes (taken by hand on the iPad using NoteTaker HD and emailed into Evernote) to student papers (graded / annotated on the iPad and emailed back to students, CC'ing my EN account) stored in one place for easy access.

PS. I think your use-case could really benefit from a scanner like the one ScanSnap makes.

I'm not a teacher. But I also use a Livescribe pen & have for ~five years. Just love it. And I add the important notes from Livescribe to Evernote as a backup. ;-)
I'm not affiliated with Evernote. Evernote is an integral part of my life.

never used it, so i can't say. i've gotten three years and counting out of my scansnap, and have had an extremely good experience with it, so i can recommend it without reservation. it's less than 150. well worth it in my opinion.

Set ScanSnap for Duplex Scan (double sided)

If you scan a document that is 4 pages long, you will get a single file containing all 8 sides.

The title of this post caught my eye. Evernote is good, but it is not a Primary teacher, yet.


Reminds me of the story on the importance of good grammar.

The teacher wrote on the blackboard: "A woman without her man is nothing" and then asked the students for the correct punctuation.

All the boys wrote: "A Woman, without her man, is nothing."
All the girls wrote: "A Woman: without her, man is nothing."

Or, as I tell my 2nd graders---"Let's eat Grandma!" or "Let's eat, Grandma!" I give you one guess which one they want to use......
