About Me

Jordan CollierAfter ten years of teaching junior high English, I transitioned to administration, and I am currently serving as the secondary principal of Central Arkansas Christian School.

I believe allowing students to use technology in class is not the same as showing students howI’ve made it my mission to model responsible tech use and to give our students opportunities to responsibly use their own technology.

I have been married to my wife (Katie) for eight years. We have two sons, one daughter, and two crazy dogs. I enjoy reading, CrossFit, running, cycling, and winning. I also love listening to inspirational podcasts, and I don’t go a day without listening to Entrepreneur on Fire. And… I’m addicted to Chick-Fil-A and Starbucks.

This blog is my personal blog. The opinions I express here do not represent those of my employer.

I wrote an Evernote handbook for my students last year and it’s available on my blog. If you’d like to purchase it, that would be awesome! I also lead workshops to teach teachers and students how to use Evernote to be more efficient and effective.

If I can help you out in any way, don’t hesitate to contact me via Twitter or email.

  1. I am interested in acquiring the Evernote Student Handbook for students in our one-to-one high school program. Will you be updating the handbook since Evernote has been updated?

    • Yes, I will be updating the handbook. In fact, thanks for asking about it– it just moved it up my priority list. I was going to work on it over the summer, but look for it by the end of this month.

  2. Excellent read, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing some research on that. And he actually bought me lunch as I found it for him smile Therefore let me rephrase that: Thank you for lunch!

  4. So glad to have found your blog and links. I teach 4th grade and want to use Evernote to help my students become more tech savvy. I teach at a Title 1 school and many of my students DO NOT have techonolgy to use at home but I am hoping to motivate them to use it at school and eventually help their parents bring a computer into their homes.

    • Tracey, glad to have helped you some. Email me anytime you have any questions or need someone to bounce an idea around with.

  5. Our school currently uses a “get your agenda stamped” with a physical stamp (teacher’s name) system to keep track of Ss moving between home rooms & tutors during our Opportunity Period. As we are now 1:1 with iPads I was thinking we could use Evernote to replace stamps & agenda books. What do you think? Possible?

    • Hmmm, good question, Kara. Who would document in Evernote– teachers or students? I could see it working if teachers used a shared notebook to document which student came by (basically “stamping” in the Evernote note), but I don’t know how students might use it. I wish I had a better answer for you, but I’m kind of stumped on this one. Let me think about it and get back to you.
