How I Use It
I use OneNote as a way to engage students during class and to also provide them with resources/notes for when they are home. During class, I have the students log on to the OneNote I created, and they use it as a way to guide them through the learning process. In math, the steps to complete a problem as explicitly stated along with visuals to help explain the process. I also include videos so the students can watch (and re-watch) the video as needed in order to learn the process. By using OneNote, students are able to work at their own pace in order to learn new concepts, while I rotate around the room to assist students individually. Students are also able to access the material at home, so they always have the information readily available.
My Take
I love OneNote- it is a great way to create interactive notes for the students. I usually embed visuals and videos into the pages, and also will link to websites for additional resources. Students really enjoy using the program as well because it gives them access to the material electronically, so the can access it on their phone or a computer. Students love that they can re-watch videos as often as they like to learn the content, that the material is always available and that they can learn at their own pace.
