I love Evernote- it saves everything and reads everything when I search — images, documents, websites, etc.
What could students use? What’s a curating, organizing app that’s easy to use and is always available?
Well, I’ve discovered Google Keep: keep.google.com
I can capture URLs or images, notes or appointments with reminders, grocery lists, etc.
I color code for categories and create categories [Blog It — in the image at right].
I can change labels, copy the note, or copy to Google Doc! I can share them with others.
Organization is then easy — color, labels, categories using the search.
In the search image, see the blue categories plus the colors and tags. All searchable or choose the whole tag.
The best is of course that whenever I log in, there’s Google Keep — on any device or browser! And I can use the mic on my iPhone to dictate my note. The text and audio note are both saved!
Google Keep and Diigo are now great ways for students to gather and annotate resources or note appointments with reminders [date or location!]. Students can create checklists or start ideas and notes. They can organize goals and gather resources. They can annotate URLS using dictation. Pin the tab in their Chrome browser and all their info and access to add more is always available.
