Teaching Teaching Evernote to my 7th Grader

Recommended Posts

I have three kids, the oldest of which is going into the 7th grade next year.  I think she's at an age where I need to start showing her how to use Evernote to be more productive at school.  I've seen a few articles on how to show kids how to set up an account, but I haven't seen anything on how to take them to the next step.  How do I start teaching her how to create notebooks, tag files, etc, etc...

 

Thanks ahead of time for any help,

You could start with an example.
Create a notebook of family records and share it with her.
Also, don't go crazy with notebooks - one shared notebook and use tags for organization

I like that. I'm planning on having her make a homework folder, and MAYBE a school project folder.  I want her to see how to use it to focus in on what assingments she needs to do and when.

I want the homework to be a shared folder, but might let her create another folder to save other things in that she's working on.  However, I'm planning on giving her free reign with that notebook.

Thats a great plan.
There's a benefit for you - you get to see what's happening with her
I also see a benefit for her; sometimes kids need a little persuasion to accept new things

My son is going into the same grade and we are doing the same thing. He is particular about his organizing but once he comes up with a system I will share for sure.

It helps to have purpose. Mine did debate which requires a lot of organization. The ability to web clip in Evernote made it a natural tool.
