  • Scan a Document – You or your child may need to scan an assignment or test in order to submit it to the classroom teacher.  Below are instructions for using the Evernote Scannable App (iOS) or Adobe Scan App (Android).
  1. For Apple phones, download the Evernote Scannable app (blue butterfly).  Once downloaded, position your phone over your document until the box in the screen appears blue.  The app will automatically scan the document.  Continue to scan pages until you are finished. When you are finished scanning, click the blue check mark.  Click send at the bottom of the screen and email the document to yourself. You will now have a pdf attached to an email.  Save the pdf into your Google drive using the options at the top of the email screen.  From Google drive, you can share the pdf or attach it to the Google Classroom assignment.
