Notetaking
  • Google Keep http://educationaltechnologyguy.blogspot.com/2013/03/google-keep-note-taking-service-launched.html
  • Evernote notetaking and bookmarking http://educationaltechnologyguy.blogspot.com/p/evernote-for-education.html
  • Google Drive Docs can also be used for Note taking
  • MoveNote - Ever wish you could hear what students were thinking or trying to develop when they wrote a paper or constructed a lab report? MoveNote makes that possible by giving students the ability to add video and audio descriptions to their products right in Google Drive. The process is so simple! Once you select the document, and open MoveNote, the camera will automatically launch. Students can then begin recording additional information or ideas to their documents or presentations. As MoveNote calls it, it is ‘Presentations with Emotions.’ All this for free on the Chrome Web Store. Teachers can use MoveNote to explain directions to individual students, making it easier to differentiate instruction. The possibilities are limitless – and the reasons why I have made MoveNote one of my top picks for the Chromebook classroom.For more information watch this short video from MoveNote. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PN8XY2Ouudk    https://www.movenote.com/
