Storing evidence of work

Evernote can be used to provide evidence of student learning in one place. Students can share their work with teachers and parents within the individual apps but now we are able to store the physical evidence of children's manual work. Some ways this can be done is having students taking photos of their work i.e 'paper nets' and leaving a verbal comment about what they have learned and how they felt about the activity. Another example is of students who are working on Sketchup are taking close up photos of their screens and doing the same thing. Another example I have seen is where a child photographed her two 3-D Worksheets and made comments about what she did wrong and what she did to fix it. Some others have sent PDF copies of their published books made in Book Creator to their Writing folder in Evernote, which means that you d
on't have to go through several steps to find the student's work. Teachers might decide to let students send through to Evernote some of students' final edited writing in Pages. All of that writing can still be seen in the Pages 'library' but maybe best pieces of writing could go there. The next issue of course is how do teachers keep up with the marking of this work. This could be done when teachers are working with the groups i.e. when they have conferenced in writing, the edited piece could be sent to Evernote there and then and the teacher adds their comments straight away. When students come to Maths group, they can then share the work that has been done and sent to Evernote with the group and the teacher for feedback.

Example of Publishing: This is a book published in Book Creator, it has been shared to Evernote. There is also a sound file where the student has left an audio clip talking about their work.
