|My Pensieves from years past...|
As much as I love the concept and was thrilled to hear the Gail and Joan talk about the Pensieve, it hasn't worked for me. There are plenty of people who use it faithfully and are able to plan their instruction around notes they've taken in their Pensieve. I want to be one of those people. I just need to find my medium.
This year, my plan is to use a combo approach. I'll be using my iPad to record conferences and type notes on Evernote. I'll be using the Confer app to help me put together my strategy or guided reading groups. And I'll probably carry a notebook at times, too.
I love the fact that I can access Evernote from just about anywhere... my phone, my iPad, my work computer, my home computer... If I forget to bring home my notebook, I'm still able to access information that I need.
I know there is a large group of people who already are or who are planning to use Evernote much in the same way. There is also the news of The Sisters coming out with their own app to help with note-taking. Can't wait to catch a glimpse of that!
I'd love to hear how others are recording notes as they confer with readers!
