Why use OneNote?
OneNote offers a wealth of functionality for teaching, learning and assessment. OneNote can be easily integrated across schools and into classes to elevate the education of students through presentation, organization, and real-time collaboration with both students and other educators.
Notebooks are organised into sections with corresponding pages like the traditional ring binder, except now it is stored in the cloud, OneDrive. As any additions to a notebook are synced with all students or colleagues who have permission to access the notebook, no one is left behind and the material is readily accessible anywhere, anytime to everyone on their own devices. In fact, if students do not have an internet connection at home, they can still access all the material in a notebook as long as it synced to their device before going home.
Through OneNote teachers can create or add the class notes, distribute resources, collect homework or project work, give written or audio feedback to individual students, and much much more . Once added to the notebook these are automatically shared; no need to upload at the end of class. It’s functionality includes:
– organising material into sections, sub-sections and pages
-attaching files for easy access and organisation
– inserting worksheets and other file types to be annotated on
-inserting video and adding audio recordings
– inserting mathematical formulas and also adding the Mathematics add-in to allow solving and graphing
– draw tools for users with certain touch devices
OneNote is also an amazing tool for departments to use amongst themselves. When teaching a shared curriculum, OneNote allows teachers to collaborate on lesson plans and assignments, put together reviews, resources and tests. Any updates or edits to a page in a notebook can be easily tracked so the entire department is up-to-date all the time.
OneNote is such a dynamic and user friendly tool, teachers are finding they now have the necessary functionality to deliver 21st century content all combined in the one package. This two-day course will equip attendees with a great foundation to enhance their current teaching material and inspire new ways to interact with colleagues and students.
