A Tool I'm Eager to Try
Today I learned about an app that I think will come in very handy in my work as a literacy coach. It's an app called LessonNote, and it is a free app available through Itunes.
Here's what it looks like:
When I am in a classroom collecting student data as part of my coaching work with a teacher, I can set the screen to reflect the classroom. I can then click on specific students and make notes about behaviors and contributions. I can then go back in my discussions with the teacher and look at the information I captured and reflect on it. I can even snap photos and those get included in my notes.
I know that I could do this just as easily with a pen and paper, but I am trying to migrate to digital file keeping, so this app could really be helpful with that.
The only thing that would be better is if I could export directly to Evernote.
I think I'll be playing with this one over spring break!
