This learning event is right for you if you are a teacher wanting to harness the power of OneNote to enhance learning in your classroom
The use of Class Notebook is becoming very popular and has been a game-changer in education. The aim of this half-day workshop is to equip participants with the knowledge of this platform and familiarise themselves with its features by setting up a Class Notebook for one of their classes. OneNote has the capacity to save time, be an effective vehicle for feedback, facilitate collaboration and keep content organised. This workshop is recommended for new and beginning users of Class Notebook.
‘Using Learning Tools in OneNote, such as Immersive Reader, Dictation and Audio makes learning more equitable, accessible, and engaging. It’s providing many more opportunities for my students to practice and apply 21st century skills.’
– Merlyne Graves, Garfield Prep Academy, DC Public Schools
