For paper organization Evernote still remains one of my all time favorites. It has been around for a while and I have tried other systems, apps, software, etc. But I always come back to Evernote. My current uses for Evernote are as follows:
- Using my Fujitsu ScanSnap scanner to scan in all lose papers. Small stacks of 8-10 sheets.
- The big printer in the office can "scan to email" so I have my evernote email with the contacts of the office printer and can scan larger stacks of paper through that printer. (Exception: The office copier does not scan 2-sided like the ScanSnap. Can only scan to email one sided documents.)
- Random notes: I have 2 monitors and Evernote is always open on my 2nd monitor in case I want to add a quick note (has to be important info that I know I will want come back to)
- Searching for documents: The "search" component of Evernote is very precise. See below: (This is an anchor chart with "reading" written on a post-it note. I searched for the word "reading" and 132 of my "notes" had that word:)
- Taking pictures of anything with words that I may want to recreate or share with teachers.
How do you use Evernote?
