My current technology, if I can be so bold to use that term, is cutting and pasting url sites and resources into Sharepoint and keeping them categorised, and accessible when writing new curricula work. I can see the enormous benefits of using Evernote and Diigo for a vast variety of materials, in and beyond the classroom. Accessing and organising information quickly and dispersing it quickly to a group is possibly its greatest strength.
Teaching workflow and organisational techniques is vital to students and teachers alike as we tend to have so much information, it is difficult to access when needed..I think. Having not used either of these in my teaching practice, I envisage that it would be practical to have Evermore as a repository as a virtual library, enabling students to access material.
Teaching work-flow and organization techniques to students is an important task. Some students are organized; whereas, others have a approach not unlike my own.
Presently some teachers at school are beginning to use Diigo and Evernote, so the task of teaching work-flow and organisation skills will start to be shared across the curriculum. This will create a consistent approach as students become more comfortable with using the calendar and turning in their work on-line, using links and communicating with their teachers and peers.
At present I can’t teach students these computer skills unless my own are better developed which I hopefully will develop through the PLN Course, by improving my work-flow, organisation and sharing of information. Also I would like these processes to be more efficient as they are taking an inordinate amount of time.
