Teaching with Evernote: A 6th and 8th Grade Science Teacher Shares His Top Tips (Back-to-School Series) Posted by Kevin Buran on 30 Aug 2011 Comment Bio Creating ePortfolios with Ease Throughout a student’s school career, we support the development of products that reflect their learning – their drawings, stories, research papers or perhaps photographs of work.

I had a great first week back at school last week, as Melbourne schools prepare for their last term of the year! Last week I tried something new (for me anyway) using Evernote and the iPad. As many readers of this blog are aware, I do not organise my paper work well and as a result have been trying ways to eliminate paper in my classroom. for Portfolios - Evernote for Schools Just to endorse the general concept, I've been adding documents and data to my account with the tags 'pedigree' and 'showreel' so that I can use anything to hand - a web connection, my laptop or my 'phone - to demonstrate my expertise and the type of work I've done for other clients.

Sketchlot - a shared web whiteboard for tablets SketchLot is an interesting free website that allows teachers and students to share whiteboard sketches made on their tablet computers.

Professional Development Guides These free instructional guides, formerly known as the Teaching Modules, were developed by education faculty and professional developers for their colleagues. They can be employed as extension units in existing courses or can be used independently in workshops and meetings.
