OneNote,how we love thee!!!
EDU powerhouse: OneNote, how I love thee. The most important EDU tech that I use at present. First announced in November of 2002. Thank goodness some wonderful people used it over the past 15 years!!! The development of OneNote is one of the biggest and best evolutions of a software product for EDU that we have seen. OneNote Intro
Beginnings: I remember trying it in the 2003 Office release and not really knowing what to do with OneNote. As a teacher, I was looking for something exactly like this- a digital 3 ring binder! However, I did not realize what it could do and in 2006 with my own classroom for the first time and one of the only people in my school with a SmartBoard, I started using Smart Notebook. It is said, “Hindsight is 20/20”, wow how far OneNote has come in all these years.
Ease of Use with encouragement for amazingness: OneNote is at one time very straight forward and simple to use and at the same time, one of the most interconnected, embed friendly, EDU teacher and student collaborative notes/assignments/grading/feedback systems that exists today. The opportunity for a truly connected classroom utilizing OneNote for optimal student flexibility in their work, is a possibility for so many teachers.
OneNoteEDU: I now support 10 Office 365 school districts as an Instructional Tech Specialist and 365 admin. As a hybrid of teacher and IT. My biggest recommendation for teachers to organize themselves and to organize/ share interactive content with students is ONENOTE!!!
