This video shows excellent use of evernote and IdeaPaint for interactive learning but why should it be kept for high school, could think of a few examples to use it in medical education, can you? Let me know in the comments.
When you combine IdeaPaint’s ability turn any wall or surface into a canvas and Evernote’s ability to capture, archive and make that surface searchable, the possibilities for turning any room into an interactive environment are endless. These two products come together in a particularly exciting way in a classroom environment, which can become a more creative and engaging place to learn.
I was a great fan of Google Notebook but Google decided to drop the development of Google Notebook. I used it mostly for blogging. It’s integration with Firefox made it an easy to use tool for saving links, web pages and blogposts. At the beginning of the previous year I decided to give Evernote a try and I was very satisfied with this capture tool. You can sync your evernotes with all your devices, even with the iphone. It’s integration with Firefox is smooth.
Recently found a better alternative reducing the time to save links etc. with another click less and as such more comparable to Google Notebook: Read It Later. It’s faster than Evernote, because especially in Windows Evernote has to start up, you have to approve each note and tag it if wanted. Read it later is also an onlineservice but you can also save your notes directly in your browser, add ons are available for all the major browser platforms. You can also read it on any device such as iphone. Articles are saved text-only or with images, and formatted for easy reading. You can also read your notes off line.
Read It Later Digest as shown in this video below, analyzes all of the articles in your list and automatically groups them into topics. Simply put, it is like having folders in your list, but Read It Later takes care of sorting them for you.
Business cards are still around, I get them often, they’re nice and they do have advantages as can be read on geek!daily: they’re customizable, trivial to distribute, and cards are static. Digital alternatives like Poken and My Name is E don’t seem to have enough success, only nerds and geeks not your average academic or business man has any of them. There are alsoother ways to use the internet to create, share and use your business card, but again not in much use by doctors, scientists and academics.
I often ask myself how to get a grip on these business cards of which the social calling cards like moo cards were a recent hit. Several different options exist for digitalizing your paper business cards or social calling cards:
You can get a business card scanner. They are small usb scanners and the accompanying software can be used to also grab the contact information in an email signature, web page or other text file and put it in the software which transforms it to Outlook or other address book applications
You can mail, upload and email your business cards to CloudContacts. After they receive your business cards, they turn them into contacts you can view online and export in a variety of formats. You have to buy credits, 100 for 29,95 dollars. Each business card conversion is one credit.
You can also make pictures of the business cards and upload them to flickr and tag them
Recently I started using evernote with iphone for digitalizing paper business cards but I am thinking about getting a card scanner because the photo’s don’t work that well and I don’t want a case for my iphone. Do you know any alternatives? Any suggestions or advice? I also found another way to improve businesses at least in the mailing part, and is using the best shipping labels amazon.

Evernote allows you to easily capture information in any environment using whatever device or platform you find most convenient, and makes this information accessible and searchable at any time, from anywhere.
