I have never relied on a tool as much as I am now relying on Evernote! I am using it to organise a range of things in my life from classroom assessment to recipes!
A couple of weeks ago I presented a Techy Breaky at our school about Evernote after being privileged to attend professional learning presented by Miss Spinks, the only Australian Ambassador for Evernote.
I have now been using Evernote in the classroom over the past month to collect evidence of student learning. I have set each child up with a Notebook, and stacked all notebooks together. I then have a note for each subject I am collecting data on inside the notebooks (Reading, Writing, Numeracy etc.) I have used Kustom Note to develop the templates for anecdotal records, and included voice clippings, images and checklists. I utilise all my devices to collect information including my iPhone, iPad and Macbook. I generally find my phone easier for taking photos and voice recordings. I now keep my phone in my pocket to be ready to capture all the excellent learning my student’s display! I feel confident that I will have all assessment evidence ready and easily accessible when I come to write reports.
Please share with me how you are utilising Evernote for assessment in your classroom.
