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 #18- Curate and Share Information w/ a Shared Notebook
As an English teacher, I used a shared notebook to provide my students resources, study guides, homework assignments, helpful links, video tutorials, school handouts, and any other helpful information. I shared the notebook with my students and also made the notebook public and shared the URL with my students’ parents (click here to see a sample shared classroom notebook).
As an administrator, I created a shared notebook notebook to share resources, helpful links, video tutorials, school information, and any other helpful materials with our faculty. I invited each faculty member individually, but I did not create a public URL because some of the information shared needs to be kept in-house.
I also created a shared notebook for our administration team to use for discipline documentation, field trip requests, technology issues, insightful articles, and any other information that would benefit our administration team. I invited each of our administrators to join.
Creating a shared notebook is quick and easy to do.
The invitees will receive an email asking to join the notebook. Once they join, the notebook will be synced with their Evernote account, so anytime you add content to the notebook, they will see the updates.
If you’re looking for a great way to share information, consider using shared notebooks. You’ll just need to decide if you want to share the notebooks with individuals (meaning the invitee will need to have an Evernote account) or if you want to share the notebook with a public URL (anyone has access to the notebook and no Evernote account is required to view the notebook).
