For all three groups, there is always the constant challenge of staying on top of everything while finding ways to be more productive. The following list includes our favorite apps that can help with this!


You work with technology, so why not use it as a tool to organize and share your ideas? The Notion notebook brings the easy customization of digital note-taking and shares it on paper.

Evernote is the simplest way to organize your life online. With Evernote, you can clip what you find on the web and store it in checklists or notebooks so that students’ materials are always at their fingertips. It helps students get more details about assignments by instantly checking out what other people say through its social media integration.

Teachers love learning how to easily take important notes like they’re used to taking them on paper with their stylus pen for hand-drawn sketches, voice recordings, typed notes or photos; upload files; share content with others including fellow faculty members across departments; and use search features to quickly locate anything they’ve written previously–the familiar feeling of not having piles of papers around while teaching!

Students find eternal value with the ability to stay organized from the start of a project until it’s completed, saved, and shared thanks to Evernote.
