What:

Google Keep is a tool that often goes unnoticed in the suite of Google for Education products. Google Keep is available on mobile devices, web browsers, and even as a chrome extension meaning you can access it anywhere anytime and all versions sync together. There are many ways you can use Google Keep for teachers and students but I’ve highlighted my favorite five below. 

Collaboration is a great tool within Google Keep. You can create notes in Keep for everything from department meetings to grocery lists and all the notes can be shared so that everyone has the most up to date information. 

Grab Image Text is a neat feature in Keep. You can create a new note in Keep and add an image that contains text. Then, click the three dots and choose grab image text and abracadabra your text appears in the note for you to copy and paste wherever you choose. This works amazingly well for long pdfs that need to be converted or text from your textbook that needs to be displayed for the whole class. This is such a neat tool, however, please remember to always properly cite any and all sources used. 

Reminders can be set for any note within Google Keep. You can create a reminder for a specific day and time or even a specific place (meaning gps coordinates). This has saved me many times by reminding me to run an errand after school by setting the gps coordinates for when I leave my school’s location. 

Annotate over an Image is similar to the grab image text feature except that you can create a note with an image and then choose to add a drawing allowing you to annotate over the image itself. 

Integration with other products is similar to all products with Google for Education’s suite. You can easily integrate your Keep notes within Docs and Slides making your life that much easier.
