Using Evernote To Help Students Study For Final Exams

To help my students review for their final exam, I gave them a copy of the mid-term that covered our first semester’s concepts, as well as a review packet for concepts we discussed 2nd semester.

2015-05-23 12.49.14Originally I was going to have the answer key in class available to any students who wanted to check their work.  The packets weren’t for a grade, just a resource for them.  A couple students suggested I put the answer key online, which is something I’ve done in the past.

I pulled up Evernote and I’d used the document camera before, but I’d usually have to take a couple pictures because it would cut off part of my document, or I just opted for a regular photo.  Turns out, Evernote’s really upped their document camera game!  All I had to do was point the iPad to the document and it created the PERFECT document image.

It took less than a minute to take a shot of the answer key and then ‘create a sharable link’ which I put on my website.


Had a conversation with students about how they really gain nothing from copying answers down from the answer key, being that this isn’t even graded, it’s just a resource to help them study.
