From the wonderful list of productivity tools to try out, I initially chose Airdrop. I could have used it recently when I was trying to upload videos from my iPad to my blog! (I ended up using Dropbox.) However, I discovered that my iPad was not new enough and the operating system on my Mac was not compatible for using Airdrop.
Next I went to the Google Drive voice typing tool which seemed like it would be helpful for some of my self-contained classroom students and bilingual students. It was so easy to use! I slowly read the blurb off of a book, speaking the punctuation, and it was quite accurate. I even tried speaking a few words in Spanish, and was delighted to see that Google differentiated between Spanish spoken in a variety of countries. I can't wait to try it with my students.
Next I revisited Evernote and Zotero both which I looked into last year. I think they are fantastic tools but require that you consistently invest time using them to gain fluency.
One thing that I knew I wanted help with was quickly citing Creative Commons licensed images. We use them all the time in student projects, but citing them can be a laborious. Zotero to the rescue! This YouTube video (created by a librarian!) shows how quick and easy it is to save the image to Zotero then drag the description into a word processing document where it magically transforms into a citation. To chose the Citation Style, you go to Settings > Preferences > Export. This will be a tremendous time-saver.
