I keep my notes in Evernote organized with tags and notebooks. I have found it so easy to find information that I created. The ability to have my notes with me on my phone and computer made information easily available at anytime.
I will never forgot when we first went to Disney World and had an issue on our first day. I was able to pull up the notes that I recorded and all information so fast with my phone. I just grabbed my phone, opened Evernote and searched for Disney.
The situation was very easily resolved and we enjoyed a wonderful magical vacation at Disney.
Since then I have been using Evernote even more. The Evernote Web Clipper opened even more possibilities for me. I created a notebook called Articles To Read and clip articles to this notebook to read later. I can highlight sections in the article to make the information even more valuable to me.
When I talk to people about Evernote I also show how I can snap a picture and search for the text in the picture so easily and fast. I am always so excited when I do this. I know, I am a geek! 🙂
I have seen Evernote Ambassadors, tweeted with them and read their blogs and books. I wanted to become one! I believe in Evernote so much that I just want to share how I use it and help others use Evernote and learn from how they use Evernote.
A few years ago I was asked to give a few presentations at a professional development day for a local school district. I proposed one talk on Evernote and one on Agile. Both talks went excellent. I showed how I used Evernote and talked with the administrators and teachers about how they could use it for themselves. We created accounts and installed Evernote on their devices. It was a great success and another proud moment in my Evernote history.
Recently I found out about the Evernote Community Leader program. I applied for the Evernote Community Leader program. I then took a very detailed course about using Evernote, organizing and the different levels of the Evernote Service. I had great discussions with other people in the program.
When I received an email that I was accepted to be an Evernote Community Leader I was so excited! Now, I as an Evernote Community Leader I have some goals that I would like to achieve and would love to talk to anyone about using Evernote.
- Write blog posts about using Evernote
- Facilitate workshops on using Evernote
- Offer advice and consulting on Evernote
- Create an Evernote Community Leader discussion group on use Educational Technology
