Teach&Note the app can be downloaded for free from the Apple App Store
Are you a teacher/educator/school leader? Like me, do you find it difficult to stay organised and keep track of all the anecdotal notes you have made observing students in your class? Is Formative Assessment an expectation at your school? Come reporting time, do you spend hours sorting through the hundreds of photos, observation notes you have made throughout the year, only to become frustrated because like me, you haven't organised these under headings, or dates, or subjects, and so on and so on???
Have no fear... there is a hero who came to my rescue.
The hero, my husband Martijn; the happy ending, Teach&Note the app!
Martijn felt and saw my frustration (loudly and clearly), and whether it was because he really is a knight in shining armour, or that he needed an excuse to remove himself to his man cave of computers (I prefer to think it was the former, but I can forgive the latter), Teach&Note was born!
Martijn spent the past year in his man cave programming, creating and revising Teach&Note, helping to make a more efficient and organised teaching tool... I can honestly say I am really excited!
Teach&Note is going to help keep me organised... keep my formative note-taking and visual observations in order, under student and subject names, with outcomes and dates attached. No more having to reinvent the wheel, searching numerous folders, papers, devices for hours! Ya! Everything will all be there, easy to find, in one place... Teach&Note!
Teach&Note the app is an educational tool, easy to use on your iPad and iPhones, where teachers can compile anecdotal notes on their students to track their development. Teachers can use Teach&Note to take photos of students' learning, therefore tracking where he/she needs improvement the most. Student portfolios can be created using Teach&Note and emailed to parents or teachers.
Teach&Note also has an attendance roll, thus making it a much more efficient and sustainable way of keeping track of student attendance.
Teach&Note will assist teachers to give ongoing feedback to students, parents and colleagues that is effective, relevant and visible.
