  • What does the term The Cloud mean to you? Does it worry you? Today we are going to talk about 3 cloud based tools. Evernote, Diigo, an QuickOffice.
  • Why is QuickOffice different? Paid one school already bought for you. Very powerful. Can access all your docs, evernote, and soon your P drive. Can edit, save, email, organize, trash – everything.
  • Capture, access, find
  • Do you ever feel like this? What Is Evernote?•Organize and share information of all types –walk around her room - pictures, posters, book info, to do notes, directions, emails, even websites you would bookmark and database articles•Search your information by keyword, title, or tagDon’t let Root beer will spill on it
  • Evernote lets you have multiple notebooks,
  • 3 ways to use it
  • What is a notebook?
  • Let’s explore the iPad version
  • Paidvs unpaidFf and IE, safari and ChromeAutomatically synchsEmail function – email is in the little gear in the iPad, in account on other one. Put in contacts.
  • Now show how to do it.
  • Bookmarking, but on web. Benefits – can use many computers – ie Cloud ComputingTagging
  • Collective Intelligence – more people bkmark it – the better it is? maybeCan follow other people and other groups – I get daily emails from the group Diigo in Education
  • This is one of my libraries.See my notes? See my tags?See the toolbar? Go over it – There is also a Diigolet which I will show you how easy it is to use.
  • Here is another view of my notes on sites, in my library. With highlights.
  • When logged into Diigo, you can see other people’s PUBLIC notes and highlights (but you can mark your notes private, don’t worry!), which is interesting – you can start a dialog. You can also have conversations in forums, and follow particular people or groups. This can be a networking tool for people of similar interests.Maybe you are an administrator or department head and you want to disseminate a site to a group with your comments – you can through Diigo Groups function. You can make private/invitation-only groups.
  • Privacy – Can set up accounts with no last names and no emails. Kids can change their passwords later.Can see what the kids are bookmarking and noting, and alert them if nec.Automatically a group, where you can share sites, but can also make smaller discussion groups.Can install diigolet without permission.Keeps strangers from following them.Cons: takes a day to set up – they like to confirm you are using a school email.
  • This is my list of students I imported in my teacher console
  • Groups I set up according to kids who had similar topics
  • Student’s account – visible by teacher.
