Over at Edudemic, a second-grader explains how she uses Evernote to take pictures and make recordings of her reading to improve her fluency. She has a real grasp on her goals, as well. I wish I had Ms. Gleason as a teacher.
Using Evernote for research is obvious, but it has so many other applications for education, especially language learning, that learning how to use it is well worth the effort. In my university language classes, learning Evernote takes almost a semester. Inputting notes has to reach a critical mass (for my students about 100) before they can use it as a tool for writing. Once that critical mass is reached, many of them are hooked.
