Evernote was the technology of the month at the February 2015 Technology in Transit showcase. Presenters Milana, Sarah, and Melanie showed how they created e-portfolios using Evernote to store all kinds of student work, including writing, art, and multimedia projects. Using Evernote, students and parents can easily access their work with little effort. Furthermore, teachers can leave comments and feedback on Evernote, allowing all parties to see and understand the student’s assessments.
Evernote is a cloud based system where you can store and access files across multiple devices. You can take notes from your work, to home, to meetings and more. The app is free and easy to use, and is easily implemented in the classroom.

Our three featured students this month were B.Ed students from the Faculty of Education’s Personalized Learning cohort.
