I am just now learning about the wonders of Evernote. This program is a great example of cloud computing. You can store text, documents, photos, videos--what have you-- and then access the information from other sites. There's a web based version, a Windows version and apps for Iphones and Ipads. For example I made a grocery list for our RV on my computer then emailed it to my husband. He had some suggestions to add to it so i opened the app on my phone and added there. Really cool program!
Well, now I see this article on creating student portfolios with Evernote. I can see so many possibilities here! Students can put assignments here or take pictures of projects. They can add to it at home or on the go with their Ipods.
I also have lots of students who need to continue working on assignments at home. They can't access their school server files easily from home, but what if they stored the documents in Evernote? No need for flash drives!
I think learning more about this program is going to be one of my goals this summer.
