Quick Notes ~ Effortless Data Collection on the Go
Can't remember when you talked to the student last or what you talked about? Need to record time spent or analyze data?
Take Student Notes in Minutes WITHOUT Writing a Thing!
Imagine...taking paperless notes on students while you wait for soccer practice or dance class to end; effortlessly collect much needed data while you wait for your dentist; effectively answer the question, "What did you do all day?" with a few taps on your phone. Well, imagine no more--I can do it for you! You can have private, secure notes with full data collection without having to create anything, learn anything, or write anything.
I'll create a form just for you to collect your private data. I'll even help make it a personal mobile app for easy access and portability on Android or Apple devices.
Let me help you remember the Who, What, Where, When and Why of Your Day!
Conveniently access what you need, when you need it on any device or computer! Your data is automatically synced across devices.
This service is geared toward counselors and school psychologists, but can be customized for anyone who can benefit from taking notes on the go. It offers a great way to not only collect data, but have in-depth analysis of that data. While managing your notes in an easy, efficient way, you will simultaneously collect ongoing data on student needs, trends, and professional standards.
Once I set you up, you will be able to:
• Document your daily contacts with/about students, then sort them very quickly by name, date, grade, school, reason, and add brief notes about the contact. ** See suggestions below on maintaining student confidentiality.
• Use the data for a time/task analysis that can be shared. Use this pre-written form to track what you have done and how much time you spent on it. This data is useful information that will help drive your program, save time while being more efficient, and help you to be much more responsive to your students’ actual needs. For example, if you notice that you are seeing a large number of 6th graders with self-esteem issues, you can quickly form a group or prepare lessons on that topic.
• Utilize the power of Excel formatting and graphs for quick visuals of how many students you saw, what grade levels/schools they were in, what months were the busiest, and what counseling issues were addressed the most.
The directions you will receive following your purchase are very detailed and easy to follow. We'll start with a brief questionnaire for your customized notes. I will then send you a URL (web link) for you to quickly access the editable form; a URL to access the finished form to take notes; and a personal use Android app or directions on how to create a personal use iPhone app.
Spend less time on paperwork and more time with kids...while building an amazing program!
** SECURITY - I feel secure using Google Drive confidentially because I do not use full names and only write enough short hand information to jog my own memory. This form is not for medical case notes or sensitive information. With so many students, I just want to quickly know how often I see the child and what types of things we've spoken about. Depending upon how many kids you see, you can use initials or first names or some type of code to avoid full names. Your Google account is password protected, but I would also suggest using Google's 2 Step Verification to further secure your account.
