Well it has been a few days since my last post and I thought I would write an update to how I am going with my new found tools!
Let’s just say I don’t think I have ever felt so organised when it comes to assessment notes and running records….not to mention saving so much paper! I have really enjoyed having everything ready to go and accessible in such a short amount of time. I have noticed that I am even becoming much more aware of writing my observations as soon as I notice something about a student.
Using Goodreader to annotate running record sheets has allowed me to eliminate photocopying and have all my student assessment records stored in the same place. As I mentioned in my last post it was a little tricky using my finger to annotate and thanks to a colleague, I was able to test out an iPad stylus. This was fantastic, although my writing is a little bigger than usual it was much more accurate and easier to write with.
I also thought that I would share a screen capture of how I have my Evernote notes set up- I would love some feedback from this, interested in seeing how other teachers are being organised!
If you have an ipad I would seriously suggest giving it a go! Let me know how you go!
