Some students still like to take notes with pen and paper and when it comes to notebooks, my favorite is the Rocketbook Everlast. It’s so thin you can easily slip it into a backpack without taking up room but what makes it special is its ‘smarts’. Take notes as you normally would using an enclosed erasable pen (don’t worry, you can find these pens at any discount department store and at Amazon). Once you’re finished with the notes, scan each page using the Rocketbook app. The app automatically saves the notes to your choice of online cloud services such as Evernote, Slack, One Drive, Google Drive or have it emailed to you. After it has been saved, just wipe the page with a damp cloth to erase everything and use it again in class.
