You may not have heard of Google Keep, but you NEED to know about it. Keep is an incredible and easy to use tool for organizing all of the bits of information busy educators tend to collect whenever, wherever, that always seems to get lost. Keep allows you to bring together notes, links, photos, really anything you can grab with your computer, tablet and phone! Beyond gathering and organizing your digital ‘stuff,’ you can share your notes, collaborate with others, set reminders… even drag-n-drop text and photos into your Google Docs! Review the presentation below and start to make Google Keep an integral part of your daily workflow.

Thanks to Theresa Wilson for passing this article along to me. There are some fantastic rubrics here to evaluate educational apps for mobile devices based on relevance to the curriculum, ability to customize, level of student feedback, encouragement of thinking skills, level of engagement, and performance sharing.

Also included in the article are other app evaluation tools from around the country. If you are using the iPad, iPod or other app-driven mobile devices in your classroom, this is certainly worth a look.
