How I Use It
Onenote is a great tool to help students to take notes while they are researching on the computer. My students do quick write in their Onenote notebook. One of the great tools that Onenote has is the linked notes. Linked notes appear on the side of the screen so they can take notes while reading an article. I am just beginning to use this tool, but it has so much potential in our schools. There are some kinks I will admit on teaching the students how to use it and how it saves on your computer. It isn't something the students will pick up on in one day, but when they do it will be beneficial.
My Take
I think it is a great teaching tool for students. I truly believe it is the way students are going to take notes in the future so we are prepping them for it. There are a lot of accessibility features that will help all students. You can record, use your own handwriting, and even change what type of paper is on the screen. All of these features will help your students be ready for their future.
