Evernote Use #5- Capture Classroom and School Ideas
How many times do you catch yourself saying, “This would be a great to do next year”? For me, it’s just about every day. Before using Evernote, I used my lesson plan book to record those ideas. However, my best ideas rarely came to me while I was sitting in my classroom at my desk with my lesson plans open and no students present. Most of the time, the best ideas came to me while I was driving, mowing the year, washing dishes, or running. Since I don’t mow the yard with my lesson plans, that was an issue.
In addition to using a notebook for ideas, I also use tags to help me organize my ideas even further. Some of my tag labels include:
2014 School Idea
Next Year Idea
ENG Dept. Ideas
We all have “This would be great for next year” moments. Capturing those ideas is essential, and Evernote is the perfect way to do it.
