With Spring approaching standardized testing looms on the horizon. How do you prep your students for the test? Do you make reviewing the content you've worked on all year fun? Evernote Peek is a great app that turns reviewing into a fun activity!
Evernote Peek is a fun tool that takes your notes and turns them into flashcards...but not just any flashcards. This app uses your iPad's Smart cover (if you have one) or an on screen version (if you don't have one) to display the content in sort of a game style format. It's very cool!
It's really easy to set up*.
1. Take notes in Evernote (on your computer, iPad, or phone)
2. Open Evernote Peek and sign into your Evernote account
3. Select the notes you wish to turn in to flashcards and it does it for you. Here are some tips on how to set up your notes.
One of the really cool things about this app is that it has the capability to add voice notes! You'll see a great example in the video below. There are also a bank of notes already created for you to draw from (like the periodic table, world capitals, etc.), or you can create your own. This app would be a great way to review as a whole class, or for independent practice.
If you were going to use this in an Elementary classroom for independent study you could set it up this way:
In a secondary classroom for independent study you could use Peek like this:
