Summer is a great time to tackle something you’ve been wanting to do all year, but haven’t had time for…. like getting organized!
When asked, most people would say that they’d like to be more organized. And getting organized can be especially challenging for us right-brained, creative people! We need a system for keeping track of all the notes, ideas, projects, lists, and other information that piles up all around us. I’ve found a solution that works for me, and that’s a free app called Evernote.
In a nutshell, Evernote allows you to collect and organize information from various sources, and then easily find it again when you need it – across all your digital devices. It’s perfect for collecting ideas, saving receipts, making lists, archiving documents and notes, planning projects and events, bookmarking webpages, and so much more. The applications for teachers are endless!
I’ll be sharing my tips for success with Evernote at the Art of Education’s Online Conference on July 17th. If you haven’t attended one of these conferences before, they feature about 20 high-quality video presentations (in the style of “TED Talks”) on topics geared specifically to art teachers…. always relevant and inspiring! You get lots of great hand-outs, downloads, and swag. And, you get to interact with other art teachers from all over the world… all from the comfort of your own home! The conference takes place on July 17th, but by registering you’ll have access to all of the content for a full six months afterward, in case you’re not able to join in on that specific day. You can get more information and check out the line-up of terrific presenters and topics here.
