BOOGIE BOARD SYNC 9.7 ‘TEACHER REVIEW’ (Typed Version)

Here is the TYPED VERSION of the Boogie Board Sync 9.7 ‘Teacher Review’ going word for word from the original version written only using the Sync 9.7 itself.  

(*Statements made in this format are additions I made as I was typing out the review, things I forgot to add because I got sucked into the great writing experience on the Sync)

—————————————————————————————————————

What is it?

The Boogie Board Sync 9.7 is an eWriter tablet with an LCD screen.  As the name suggests, you can save and sync all of the notes you create on the 9.7 inch screen to any of your various devices or even your Evernote account.

Boogie Board Sync 9.7 ‘Teacher Review’

I will be posting a typed up version, with screenshots of the apps over the weekend, I just wanted to show everyone that the Boogie Board is fantastic for taking notes, including the student rhyming journal entry.  I had some difficulty adding individual images to the wordpress post so I had to stitch them all together and make one really long .jpeg file.  If you would like to look at the individual images/screens you can find them here.  I will be adding a word count once everything is typed up. Through this whole experiment the only problem I had was with adding the images to wordpress (they skipped about 10 lines after each of the 20 images, it didnt look pretty) and of course my ugly writing!

I will also be linking to some great articles about how writing helps students remember a lot more than typing, but I will save that for the typed up version. Enjoy the Boogie Board ONLY Review below for now!

Boogie Board Sync 9.7 – Quick Review (Tech)

I put together a fairly quick video review of the Boogie Board Sync 9.7 (sorry for the hoarse voice), we will have a more in-depth review with educational uses in about a week.  The device has the potential to save a lot of paper in a classroom, while at the same time having the notes to look back on for assessment.  For $100 the Sync is a great tool for any teacher to have. Watch the video and let us know what you think.

 

 The Boogie Board Sync 9.7 allows you to jot down some quick notes or can also be used as your primary note taking method.  Writing on the screen is effortless and natural, and the saved notes look just as good as writing in a notebook.  You can save thousands of notes on the device and have instant access to them on your mobile devices or computer through bluetooth syncing.  

Enjoy!

Review: Evernote Moleskine Notebook

So with the Evernote Review/Introduction and Evernote Web Clipper posts there is only one more piece that you need to complete the Evernote Trifecta… the Evernote Moleskine Notebook.

If you don’t have an Evernote Account you need to sign-up for one!

I have bought a lot of these books. I am still working on filling my 1st one, but I just had to pull the trigger when I found this deal! $20 may seem like a lot for a notebook, but this one comes with 3 months of Evernote Premium for free. Evernote Premium gives you a few very key features that makes this already great service even better. You can go for a full year at $45 USD or $5 USD per month. So, the $20 high quality, hardcover, Moleskine Notebook doesn’t look that bad when you realize it comes with a $15 credit for the awesome Evernote Premium service.

*A regular Large sized Moleskine Notebook goes for $17.50 on amazon.ca , so you are essentially paying an additional $2.50 (plus tax) for $15 worth of Evernote Premium!

Tech: Evernote Web Clipper

Now that you have read or Evernote Review/Introduction you need to check out the Evernote Web Clipper.

If you don’t already have an Evernote Account you can sign-up here!

Using the Web Clipper you can save any article you find online and read it later using the Evernote app of your choice.  For example, I know you saw the Evernote Review/Introduction, but if you didn’t have time to read it you could clip it in a couple simple steps.

Tech: Evernote!

 

evernote

 

Evernote, the ‘remember everything‘ app, is one of the most incredible tools you can use in the modern world. There are many apps in the Evernote ‘trunk’ (family) but the main Evernote app is the only one you really need.

Evernote markets itself as a digital filing cabinet for your everyday life, and it is exactly that. Absolutely anything that you can think of can be saved to Evernote, and accessed at anytime. You can send an entire website, a website link, pictures, voice memos, brief notes, to-do lists and MUCH more to Evernote.

Take a look at this great introduction video:
