Learning is more powerful and dynamic with tools that are already right in front of you – and it’s up to educators to impress this on students in the classroom. With Microsoft OneNote, educators can create digital notebooks that support academic standards and education outcomes across disciplines and tasks, such as writing, reading, mathematics, science, HASS, and more! Students may use OneNote across learning areas and grade levels, and use OneNote to compile and organise unstructured information, research, and content. OneNote also supports research, collaboration, information management, communication, note taking, journaling, reflective writing, and academic requirements.
In this workshop, teachers will develop the basic skills needed to use OneNote as a productivity tool for both themselves and their students. Time will be devoted to assist a teacher in understanding how OneNote can be used as a true collaborative tool. Interactive lessons will be created using the tools in OneNote, which will then immediately transfer to classroom practice. Finally, teachers will experience and discover how Professional Learning Communities can be more productive when using OneNote to drive content delivery and creation. At the end of the day, participants should leave feeling comfortable and knowledgeable in the basic skills necessary to be up and running successfully using OneNote in the classroom, and as a professional tool.
By the end of this session, participants should feel confident with basic use of OneNote and be able to:
- Understand the benefits of OneNote use in the classroom
