While keeping stats today at a boys lacrosse game I thought that there must be a better way to accomplish the task while being able to watch the game. The problem: to keep stats requires you to look down at either a piece of paper or the iPad to annotate what just happened. (example: #20 shot on goal, #15 assist, etc). This requires at least two people - one to keep watching the game an providing a running commentary of what is happening and one to do the logging. Or, if we're short a person we record everything using a voice app an then someone later has to listen to the entire recording to log the stats. I am trying to come up with a way to be able to use a voice recorder and speech-to-text to log the data into a table/spreadsheet. If I can do that I think I can work out an import mechanism(or macro) to get the stats into a usable form. Does anyone in the Evernote community have suggestions for how to accomplish this task? Anything to point me in the right direction would be helpful.
I recently purchased an iPad 3, and I am thrilled at the possibilities to simplify my life as a high school, varsity, cheerleading coach. I do not teach, but I know that there are plenty of teachers who also coach and could benefit from my EN for Coaches tips- I hope! INVENTORY- I recently cleaned out our school equipment lockers. It's my first year running the program, so I wasn't sure where to start. After sorting out all the uniforms and equipment, I realized we were missing some things. I decided to take a picture of each uniform, each set of signs, each set of different pom-poms, each set of warm ups and any other random equipment or supplies and upload them each to a seperate note in Evernote. Next to each picture in the note, I logged how many piecese or sets of each item we have. KEEPING TRACK OF IMPORTANT FORMS- This one is a no-brainer, and a popular use of evernote. After collecting emergency medical forms from 30+ girls, I put them in alphabetical order and then scanned them as one document. I bookmarked each girl's form in Adobe, and then uploaded it into Evernote as a document. I have done the same thing for other important forms. This way I only have to carry around my iPad, instead of stacks of forms. ATTENDANCE- First, I downloaded "Noteshelf", which is a handwriting app that is integrated with Evernote. Then I created my own notebook back ground (explained in the noteshelf app) with each of the girls' names in the first column, and "present", "tardy" and "absent" in the top row. Now I can easily start a new notebook for every event, take attendance, and send the note to Evernote. No more chance of lost pages out of a paper notebook. FORMATIONS/ PLAYS- I also plan to use the handwriting app, Noteshelf, to keep track of all our different formations (other sports could use this to keep track of plays created on the spot). This app works best with a stylus pen. No more will I have to fumble through a large notebook to find a particular formation- I will simply do a quick search in Evernote, and it will pull up. I would imagine I haven't even begun to tap into the possibilities. I would love to hear your ideas on how evernote can take the "office" duties out of coaching to allow more time to coach!
