Stories of an Unschooling Family, published a series on using Evernote to record home schooling, I was very curious, but I didn't want to switch methods in the middle of the semester. I bookmarked it and thought I'd look at it over the Christmas break.
Well, with illness in the family, that didn't happen either, but now that summer is here, I'm between school years, and it's the perfect time to try it out!
Here are Sue's blog posts. This is the first post.
And here are her videos.
Between the two, I ought to be able to figure it out. She makes it look very easy!
My only question is if I could do Evernote and still have enough creative energy/computer time to keep going with my blog. I started the blog as a way of recording home school stuff, but it's expanded to sharing ideas, meeting friends, and, with Blog 2 Print, making a concrete way to remember all the joys (and some of the sorrows) of our home school journey.
That's why I've never tried Facebook or Twitter, if I put my energy there, I wouldn't have it here.
Still, with the summer to try it out, I'll have my best shot of making it easy by the time I "need" to record things, and the worst case scenario is that I will have learned a new system. Evernote looks like it would be useful for organizing all sorts of ideas- maybe I can get the Emperor to learn it with me!
