Aaron shares his favorite apps for students of all levels, from categories like science, math, English, and others designed specifically to help teachers. Use this course to decide if these apps are right for you before you purchase them for the classroom.
Evernote is a great application for not only students but teachers as well. For students, as they go throughout their class session they can take notes and then synch those notes online. So that way if they've got their iPhone, iPad, or even just an Internet-enabled computer, they'll always have access to their class notes. For example, I can come into my school folder here, and I can see that a student started taking notes in a Biology class. If at any time the student want to reinforce these ideas, they can choose to add photos, add an audio track, or even use the built in camera inside the iPad to take a photo. Here the student started writing about Mitosis.
Let's say that during the presentation the professor had a great tip to remember the various stages of mitosis. They could go ahead and record those tips. I'll click the Record button in the upper right hand corner and start recording. To remember interphase, it is when the chromosomes are still inside the nucleus. Prophase the cells preparing to split. Metaphase the chromosomes are meeting in the middle. Anaphase the chromosomes are being annihilated in the chromatids and the telophase they're being teleported back your centrals.
I'll click done to show that I'm finished recording, and now inside of this note there's an audio file the student can listen to as the preparant for a test. I'm going to go and click the Close button. Remember that with any student applications, students will need to be taught how to use them. If you plan on having students use evernote for note taking inside of class, I recommend teaching a lesson on evernotes so you're students can be fully prepared. A few other ideas, are student clubs and organizations will often order food for after school meetings. One thing that Evernote's great at is, you can organize all those menus, so you can quickly know what students need for those club meetings. Here, I've taken the menus from the local restaurants, and I've simply snapped a photo of them, and stored them inside of Evernote.
So when students come after school for that group meeting, I can simply say, where do you guys want to order food from? And pull up whatever menu's relevant. I hope you enjoy finding your own ways to use ever note inside the classroom.
