Two new videos have been added to our training channel on dret.tv.
OneNote Basics introduces the app (which is available on all our PCs with the standard system, on the dret.cloud home page in the Microsoft Office folder and in the self-service store for our iPads) as something much more powerful than just a note taking tool.
OneNote allows the teacher to create a scrapbook for a topic or lesson (or course!) gathering together all their files into one place and arranging them as needed, and allows them to share the contents with colleagues and with students in a very simple way - including allowing them to collaborate live on the notebook just as they do so successfully in Google Docs. On top of that the drawing tools make it a great fit for the interactive whiteboard or touchscreen.
The second video unpacks some more specific teaching ideas and tools to show what the app is capable of.
OneNote will be one of the apps we feature strongly in the Star Classroom programme, and more videos are on the way - to explore how it can be used on the iPad or Chromebook as well as in Windows.
