Teachers are notorious for multi-tasking. Recent evidence suggests this is detrimental to overall effectiveness, but for educators, it's just the name of the game. Often our minds are going 100 miles per hour making to-do lists, prioritizing those to-do lists, planning lessons, evaluating recent instruction, prepping for parent-teacher conferences, and so on.
Inevitably, great ideas or necessary reminders invade our thoughts while we are in the midst of making copies, walking to a meeting, driving to or from school, etc. Most of us have smart phones these days. The Reminders or Notes apps are, by my guess, highly utilized. I have recently stumbled upon an alternative that I like much better. You might too. It's called Say&Go.
It's an app that I keep on my home screen for safe, easy access. See, with one tap it immediately begins recording. Then, with either a pre-set to automatic upload or a one-swipe command, the recording is sent to Dropbox. No more losing thoughts on that long drive home for me! I touch the app icon, immediately record my blog post inspirations, or my tutor to-do list, or my Christmas shopping ideas. And it's all saved to Dropbox. I can either open the Say&Go app or the Dropbox app later and access my recordings. Sweet!
One side effect of multi-tasking is short-term memory loss. Stem the flow. Don't squander those brainstorms and bursts of brilliance. Try Say&Go. You've got nothing to lose 😉
