Tips on getting started with Evernote

Evernote graphic

 

Evernote is my main tool for work and home. I’ve been using it for 5 years and love it. It can be tough for someone new to Evernote to get started with it.

 

Here is a great article by an on-line friend of mine, Tim Stiffler-Dean, about how Evernote can be a little overwhelming at first and how to get over that.

 

Here is also a great article, and video, from Evernote on getting started and my main Evernote page has ideas on getting started.

 

I also told another on-line colleague that I would give him some tips on getting started with Evernote for his specific needs.

 

He teaches technology and physics, assists with the school network, and writes a tech column for a newspaper. Here are some ideas for using Evernote for each of these:

 

Teaching: (see here for more on how I used Evernote as a teacher)

 

  • lesson plan resources (from books, web sites, magazines, files)
  • lesson plans – schedule of what you are doing each day, linked to the actual lesson plan in Evernote
  • unit plans and resources (attached files, links, web clippings)
  • curriculum
  • project ideas
  • student work and e-portfolio’s

 

School Network

 

  • specs of all equipment
  • network map
  • to do list
  • web clippings of articles that are useful
  • equipment information
  • plans

Writer: ( I do this for the articles I write for this blog and two tech magazines)

  • story ideas
  • notes
  • clippings of research
  • articles themselves

 

Hope this helps!
