RESOURCE DESCRIPTION
Give a brief description of the technology/resource.
Evernote makes it easy to access notes or saved information across devices. Allows teachers to share
information with students who are missing from a day. Students can create notes, snap images, make
checklists, or record audio on a mobile device or computer. It has tagging location, so students or
teachers can search for keywords ( that’s awesome and extremely helpful!) Students can create multiple
folders and organizers, making it available for more than one class.

you described, using the selected resource?
 Explain your rating based on the rubric indicators.
I give this technology a 2. I really like that it is free and can be used on any software or device. I also
like the option of adding audio to notes, I think that makes it easy for students to study their notes if
they can hear themselves, or the teacher, recite it back. I do wish the site was a bit more personal
able. I like the idea of a classic notebook or envelope because students can decorate it and make it
their own, I wish this website had that option.
