Originally a desktop application, and now available on mobile devices, too, SuperNotecard is a virtual note-taking tool based on the traditional 3 x 5 note-cards concept. After creating an account, start a Project where you'll add note cards. Enter text via a simple text editor window. Flexible features allow cards to be edited, moved, and graphically notated. Cards may be organized by Decks, Categories, and tied to Reference source cards with built-in citation help. Simple tutorials will help you get started. Share projects by email. Exporting and importing work is possible. There are templates for fiction, nonfiction, script and flash cards. This site does have a slight learning curve. After five free projects, the cost is $25 per year, but projects may be deleted to stay within the free limit. There is an informative tutorial, created by a high school teacher, available on YouTube. If your district blocks YouTube, the video may not be viewable. You could always view the video at home and bring it to class "on a stick" to share. Use a tool such as KeepVid, reviewed here, to download the video from YouTube.
This site includes advertising.

tag(s): DAT device agnostic tool (199), note taking (32), organizational skills (122), paragraph writing (17), persuasive writing (55)

In the Classroom

With the emphasis in many state standards on gathering information from multiple sources, citing textual evidence in reading and writing, and producing argumentative writing and research, students need help in note-taking skills and citing sources. This tool will be useful to teach outlining, note-taking, and organizing. On an interactive whiteboard, or with a projector, demonstrate how to create a project, edit, and organize. The whole class or small groups can work together on one device to outline and gather facts and quotes from a writing sample. Students with email may share their projects with teachers or other students who import a copy into their accounts. Export Project files to review off line. The Flash Card option creates a study tool individuals or groups may use. Help is minimal, but a Community Forum shares usage questions and answers.

They could add their own information by including their code-name on notes. This tool would be perfect for adding student accountability to the flipped classroom!
