Exploring Microsoft OneNote for Teaching and Learning

Share, Brainstorm, Collaborate, Organize, for free, with OneNote.

After being introduced to Microsoft OneNote at the UB Tech 2015 conference, I found myself really curious to learn more about it and take it for a test drive. My interest comes from two perspectives – one, as a tool for productivity within my department, and secondly, as a tool for teaching and learning.

OneNote is a unique tool that makes it easy to gather lots of information in one place, and is great for collaboration, sharing, projects, group work, and much more. It is free for use in education, and is often included with MS Office (depending on which version you have).

Focusing on teaching and learning, I searched the web using phrases like “Microsoft OneNote in the classroom”. I sought content from educators (as opposed to materials directly from Microsoft), to get an independent perspective.

Here are some of the better resources I found about using OneNote for instructional purposes. I thought these were informative and hope you will too!

If you aren't aware of OneNote, this is a good way to learn a bit about this highly capable and unique tool. If you're just getting started learning about OneNote, I think you'll find some useful information here. And if you are already using OneNote in your courses or classes (or as an administrative tool in your school), we'd love to hear about it!

  • Next, in this SlideShare presentation, The interactive classroom with Microsoft OneNote from ‘MrJud', we get a much deeper perspective on OneNote's capabilities. (I recommend making this full screen to make it easier to explore the notes):

 
Lastly, here's Microsoft's OneNote web site for Teachers, which has lots of great resources and teaching scenarios to explore.

So, are you using OneNote?

  1. Thanks for the feedback Dave … I think it has excellent potential as well (now if only the days were longer and I could push forward my own adoption more speedily)!

  2. I have been using One Note for all my organising and notes over the last year. It is very simple and powerful at the same time. We are just starting to use it more within Learning and Teaching. I think for institutions already invested in Microsoft it could be the tool to change how we all work (finally paperless may work).

  3. Thank you for this… finally I’ve found something that can collate everything that I do and will work anywhere. This will change everything about how I work next year. I can ditch the proprietary software on the interactive white board and combine lesson planning with delivery and filing. Thanks again for bringing this to my attention!
