While you may not consider Evernote to be a social media tool (they actually consider themselves to be an anti-social media tool as the app is all about YOU) it is an amazing application and has some really powerful connective features for sharing information.

 

I wanted to share this with you as my school (The Montclair Kimberley Acadmey @mkacademy) just launched a 1:1 Learning Initiative and in doing so gave every student in grade 4-12 a Macbook Pro computer and a premium Evernote account.

These two things have really change teaching a learning at our school. I have had the good fortune to speak about this on edTechTalk’s 21st Century Learning with Arvind Grover (@arvind) and edSocialMedia contributor Alex Ragone (@alexragone) as well as writing about it on my own blog and wanted to share those two resources with you:

Please post and share your thoughts on Evernote and how you see it impacting education.
