INKredible: The Cool New Way to Take Notes
101 Days of Free Tech for Teachers, Day 25
INKredible is an app for iOS and Android tablets that allows individuals to take notes the traditional way — kind of. Instead of writing on paper, INKredible lets you jot notes and draw doodles on your tablets with the look, feel, and benefits of actual handwriting. All notes are stored in one organized place and are easy to share via email as an image or PDF. INKredible also has a close-up writing mode feature that allows individuals to focus on one area of their notes for fine handwriting. Teachers and students alike can use this app for taking in-class or in-meeting notes, staying organized, creating study guides, and saving paper.
How We Decide Which Free Tech Tools to Feature
Yup, there are thousands of apps, tools, services, websites, and other offerings — many free — designed for teachers and students. So, how do we sort through all of those to feature the ones which are most useful and interesting? Well… we start by sorting through thousands of these things… then we talk to the presenters in the SimpleK12 Teacher Learning Community and watch their videos closely… then we talk to many of the members in the Teacher Learning Community, teachers just like you who are using these apps and tools day in and day out. We've been doing this for over 30 years and have, in that time, developed a sense for what's good and bad. Have we missed something that we should feature here? Most certainly. So, let us know in the Comments section what we should take a look at and we'll throw 'em into the hopper.
