Apple Notes for productivity and organisation

I’ve mentioned before, when I introduced Wakelet as a tool for collating resources, that I am not too good at being organised. I rely on technology a lot of the time to help me to catalogue, save, store and house things on the go for easy access. I know I’m not the only one, I’ve met lots of learners who are just like me. I’ll bet you have too. Apple notes on my iPhone and my iPad have been a brilliant way for me to store things I’ve come across in one place for easy reference, or for sharing, especially if I am on the move! In this week’s Blog (or is it really a Vlog?) I’m going to share some screen recordings talking you through how to use Apple Notes, so you can show them to your learners if they have an Apple device. Particularly helpful for those with executive function difficulties.

How do I organise my notes?
