Great ideas are saved to Evernote to show progress over thecourse of the school year.…“when a student comes up with an interesting strategy on awhiteboard, I have them write down their name next to it and take apicture of it, or record them explaining what they came up with” Projects are recorded, photographed or video shot and clipped toEvernote together with the students’ personal reflectivecomment Extracurricular work, having a sense of achievement, is recorded! Students’ notes (portfolios) were shared, available for theparents to progress their kids’ educational growth…“The students actually taught the parents how to useEvernote at our conference by familiarizing them with theirportfolios”
