Other folks, doing stuff in OneNote

When I’m working in OneNote on the night before classes, I always find it interesting to see who else is there working.  The Windows10 version of OneNote (and OneNote Online) both include a People Presence option to show you who else is working in the same Notebook/ClassNotebook.   When you click on the name of […]

Teacher as Student in Anonymous Desmos

I thought that everybody did this! But apparently, not. So this was my XKCD 10,000 moment this week.  I happened to tweet the following — and I think it’s my popular tweet of all time.  And as you can see, I was just at the end of class and tapped it out quickly… error included! The […]

You need a Team to do that

So yesterday I mentioned about using Teams to do Screencasts – you can see that blog post by clicking here.  Here’s a brief run-down of the process.When you’re in the Teams application, either as a reply to a message, or a brand new conversation, click on the MEET NOW button.  It looks like a little […]

Help, (Teams), I need somebody…

I was thrilled that this year the Math Department has decided to move fully on to Microsoft Teams to provide Math Extra Help.  While we’ll continue to provide face-to-face drop-in help during lunch, students in any course can post a question on the Math & CS Team, in whichever channel corresponds to their course.Microsoft Teams […]

Collaborating, without having to work

It often takes folks a bit to get used to OneNote because there are no “files” — there are only pages, like a Binder, and everything is placed on a page.  So, when students do their work and present it for feedback, it’s on a page.  What’s great is you don’t have to find, open […]

Differentiation of Product

Now, as a math teacher, “differentiation of product” means something completely different… but for this purpose it means — don’t expect every student to respond to your request for evidence of understanding with the same learning artefact.This is well stolen from Vanderbilt University (https://iris.peabody.vanderbilt.edu/module/di/cresource/q2/p07/ ) Now, even as a first year teacher way back in […]

Our Faculty OneNote

Sooo… we do everything in OneNote. I mean, everything (see here: Link). So the problem was, we were having OneNotes for everything and it just got to be too much.  Instead, we set up a School OneNote ClassNotebook for administrative use.  Every teacher is a “student” in the ClassNotebook (except for me as the tech […]

NCTM 2018 Annual Conference — and OneNote

Since organization is important when visiting an incredibly packed conference like the annual National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), I thought I would share my approach to that using OneNote.  You can visit it here: http://tinyurl.com/nctm18onenoteHow did I do it?  First, I visited http://www.onenote.com and signed in with my Microsoft Account.  If you don’t […]

Maybe More Better Tech in Math & School?

Sigh. It’s tough to disagree with Fawn Nguyen. (http://fawnnguyen.com/maybe-less-tech-in-math-and-school/) She wrote, in particular: I want them talking and interacting more than anything! Learning mathematics is a social endeavor. Here’s my perennial classroom routine, “Turn and talk with your neighbor.” I want to bring back the arts of speaking and listening, reading and writing, debating and […]
