Edshelf

Edshelf is a directory of digital tools for educators; containing websites, mobile apps, and desktop software that are rated & reviewed by educators, for educators. Each reviewed product features an overview video and text outlining how to engage with the product. Ratings, reviews, and categories allow users to learn more about how to apply the technology, specifically in an educational setting. The social component (ie profiles) allows users to access an online community of educators and their real-world professional colleagues.


Evernote Smart Notebook

Evernote’s new product is an effort to convert even the most traditional luddites into digital archivists.

Teaming up with Moleskine the new Evernote Smart Notebook uses Evernote’s Page Camera feature to capture the pages of their enhanced paper notebook with smartphones and tablets. Evernote Squared Smart Notebook features the unique “Evernote squared” page style with dotted lines designed to ensure a clean image during digital capture. Their Smart Stickers allow tagging of  content; when capturing a page with Evernote, the Smart Sticker icons become searchable, digital tags.

A great solution for those who want the analog pleasure of pen and paper but the digital luxury of accessing content from the cloud–keeping digital and analog workspaces synced.
