Evernote lets you make notes, capture photos, create to-do lists, save websites and record voice memos, giving you a super easy way of organising your digital life. It’s also incredibly search-friendly – and easier to find at a later date!
For teachers, you can save PDF copies of your favourite resources, capture learning, record assessments, plan upcoming lessons or save images for adding to a class blog. It truly is a teacher’s best friend.
Like many apps these days you can access your documents and files from just about any device you can imagine. Computer, smartphone, tablet or anything with a web browser. Be sure to activate two-factor authentication for logging in, which gives your account an extra layer of security and piece of mind.
All of your notes can be organised by tags or placed into notebooks. It’s really easy to understand and it won’t be long before you have hundreds of documents neatly organised. The free account will be more than enough for most users (25MB max note size and a total of 60MB per month) but there is a premium option for those that want the limitations removed.

Evernote could easily become the most used app in your life. It’s like a digital scrapbook or jotter which responds to the changing needs of the 21st Century classroom.
