Google Keep (formerly Google's Best kept little secret) is an amazing tool for everyone.
Initially designed as a simple Note taking app, Google Keep has developed into quite the robust utility app for note taking/to-do lists/reminders and more.
Since 2014 the web tool has added a plethora of new features including the ability to share notes with others. (Very useful when you need to help remind someone step by step what needs to be done) iOS and Android Apps. A direct web link (keep.google.com). Pinned notes, reminders...this list goes on and on.
How can I use this tool today?
- Use it to keep notes about your day for later blog posts (you can also add pictures to notes)
- Make and share to-do lists with learners/peers/colleagues to ensure that everyone is on the same page and knows when items have been completed.
- Create a Reminder which can notify you of when something needs to be done (set it to repeat when you need daily/weekly/or even monthly reminders)
- Document the learning each day in your learning space with pictures, text and even drawings.
The possibilities are endless and one of the best parts is that is accessible on your laptop/desktop/chromebook/tablet, and since it is all part of the Google Suite services it syncs across all platforms. Never leave home without your lists/reminders/notes/etc.
Stay tuned and stay connected
