Over the next few weeks, I will be posting 50 different ways school administrators and educators can use Evernote to be more organized and more effective. I’ll be using #50EduEvernote on Twitter to further this discussion and share ideas. If you’d like, click here to follow me on Twitter.
Evernote Use #17- Save and Share Your Reading Annotations
As an active reader, I highlight, write notes, and copy key ideas every time I read– whether it is my own physical book, a borrowed book, or an ebook.
When I finish a book, I save my reading notes to Evernote so that I have them everywhere I go. I often find myself thinking back to something I’ve read, and I love being able to access those notes from anywhere.
I typically save my reading notes one of three ways:
1. Import my notes and highlights directly from my Kindle account. (To learn the process I use, click here.)
2. Scan my handwritten notes.
3. Manually type my notes into an Evernote note.
After reading Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazi, I began sending my reading notes to colleagues and people I’ve just met and would like to help. Because I save my notes in Evernote, I simply email the Evernote note with my reading annotations.
Sharing annotations is a great way to foster a culture of collaboration and growth– perfect for teachers and administrators.
