About Nick’s Picks

Teachers are busy and it’s hard to keep up. In my 20th year of teaching, I understand first hand that many teachers simply don’t have the time to peruse the web for EdTech resources. So each week, I share one EdTech resource with a brief description as to how it can help teachers improve instruction and student learning. My hope is that this will help teachers incorporate more technology in their classrooms, preparing students for their future instead of our past.

A couple teachers who I am collaboratively planning with for our Gov/Econ classes are trying to find a good digital interactive notebook. We have looked at ones like Evernote and OneNote, but we would like one where we can share a document with the students and it would open as an editable document in the digital notebook. Do you know of a digital notebook with this feature or a way to do it in Evernote or OneNote?

Thank you for all your guidance!!

Hi Tasha,
Sorry your comment got buried with my new spam filter. Would a Google document in a set folder structure work? I know of several ways you could structure folders using Google Drive and send out collaborative documents, or editable templates. Let me know what you’re looking for and I’ll see if I can point you in the right direction.
