Section 12 Notes

Notes are an important part of the organization process. There are a number of apps to allows you to keep track of information. There are notes apps that you can type into, write with your fingers, and talk to. It is even possible to take a video or picture to save information. The idea is that you can remove barriers to learning with note-taking apps that have features that help people with organizational issues and other disabilities. There are note taking apps for people that have fine motor coordination issues. Students lacking executive function skills can be helped with note-taking and organizational apps. Students with weak organizational skills can use electronic organization to improve their ability to find papers. You can take a picture of a worksheet, turn it into a PDF then store it in the cloud. You can buy a handheld portable scanner to scan your documents then organize it into online folders. This makes it impossible to lose your homework. If you remember struggling with binders as a teen, you should be happy to know that this generation has an app for that.
