Google Keep

Update: Google Keep just came out on iOS.

This is an oldie but a goodie.  Back in November 2014 we blogged about a couple of sites for keeping tasks and lists.  One of them was Google Keep.   With summer upon on I had a resurrected need to keep track of some task lists, projects, to-dos, and reminders.  If I don't go into July with these out of my brain and on a list, I will assuredly forget them in August when returning.

http://keep.google.com is the root site for this tool and you can use your school or home gmail account.  I love its ability to have several lists, colored, with checkboxes, and they look good.  The best features for me though are its ability to share a list/note with anyone that has a google account. This would be a great strategy to teach students to use for keeping track of anything, but also for the busy professional, and nobody is as busy as a classroom teacher.  Also it's ability to set reminders of many kinds on the item within the list is perfect for me, since I don't act until my phone buzzes and tells me to!
