By now, parents of school-aged children have received first quarter grades and can gauge, after attending a parent-teacher meeting, how well their child is doing in school.
Early in the semester, I was offered a Rocketbook Everlast 36-page reusable intelligent notebook (retails: $29.49) which allows users to send handwritten notes jotted won on the notebook to their favorite cloud service.
Cloud services include Google Drive, Dropbox, Slack, OneNote, Evernote, iCloud etc. You have to use a FriXion erasable pen or marker on it.
The pens come in all shapes and sizes tho the original notebook comes with one black one.
The patented pages look and feel like paper, but they are actually made up of a proprietary page that lets erasable pens and markers bond to them until moisture is applied.
That’s the beauty and genius of this notebook. The notes can be wiped clean after they are scanned and uploaded to the cloud.
It’s like having a 7-subject notebook powered by tech but in one.
The first page of the notebook includes 7 symbols you can assign each subject. After penning notes, the student or biz owner (depending on who is using the notebook and for what purpose), scans the pages and QRC code on the corner and sends it to an associated Rocketbook app which files the notes into the pre-determined category.
After a few uploads or so, students will see a continuous stream of notes. They can use them to create outlines to study from, to print out note cards, or simply to review before class or skim before a quiz or exam.
It cuts out the trauma that would occur if the student were to lose a notebook. It’s great for that kid who loses papers and struggles with organization.
My 16-year old son Caleb tested it out. Now the kid is an honors student tho he misspelled the word “pineapple” in this demo. I think we was joking around but who knows. (ha) Overall, I was impressed that he used it all semester long and took it out frequently. He plans to continue to use it.
Get yours for $29.49 and although that’s a bit steep, the fact that you can reuse it time and time again and get more than a year’s worth of value from it makes it more cost efficient to disposable notebooks! WATCH my son’s demo here!
