When you invest time reading good books, going through content-rich courses, or taking a variety of classes, do you end up with piles of random notes and stacks of binders you can’t seem to locate when you need them?
April and Alia Perry join up in this podcast to share how they use Evernote and other tools to organize and easily access information now and into the future.

We want to learn and grow, and that includes a variety of settings:
- Being a student at a public or private school
- Learning in a business setting
- Studying personally at home
- Taking online courses
I (April) am no longer a “formal” student, but I still continue to learn, study, and record what I want to remember.
- I created a Knowledge Binder several years ago to hold handwritten or typed notes about the books that I read.
- Now I use Evernote to hold outlines for books, courses, conferences, podcasts, information from websites, etc.

Alia is a senior in high school, and she keeps incredible notes and records using paper and digital devices.
- In the podcast, she explains how she organizes her paper binder and files
- Evernote is one of Alia’s favorite resources. She scans/photographs papers she may need later, keeps audio recordings to help her prepare for tests and assignments, and maintains active study notes inside the app that she can review any time she needs them.
- Alia also uses Google Drive to hold the majority of her school assignments.
The goal is for each of us to USE what we learn to improve our lives.
