At the suggestion of Steven Anderson, I reloaded Evernote to give it yet another chance. I think Robert Jimenez’s blog was the first place I read about it. I could see its advantages, but didn’t use it much.
All this time, I’ve been looking for and fighting with ways to keep up with myself. So, I re-downloaded Evernote on the home laptop and the phone and started making some notes. So far it’s been really helpful. I can use the web version at school (I should say so far on this count. I remember how I felt the day I walked in to find that dropbox had gotten the county ax). I know I’ve not scratched the surface of what it can do.
Right now, I’ve got to do lists for everything I’m involved in. So, maybe about 3/15, I can start reading all the articles and watch all the videos to find out what it can really do!
One coach mentioned in the comments keeping a file on conversations with all teachers. This could also be done for all students, parents, colleagues.
btw, Steven Anderson has another post today on Evernote.
