Web Content into OneNote

Getting content into OneNote is incredibly easy … since every page acts like a clipboard, just drag&drop or use the INSERT ribbon.You can use the smartphone app OfficeLens (which takes pictures of “real” content, cleans it up, and pushes it right into OneNote) or you can use the WebClipper — a browser add-in for Edge, Chrome & […]

Why students OneNote

So my good friend and colleague Anjuli Ahooja and I were fortunate enough to host a student panel on learning technologies at the STAO (Science Teachers Association of Ontario) and teachers in the audience asked the following questions.  I tried to keep to actual student quotes. “I use Google Classroom… What is the advantage of […]

Audio in Learning (in OneNote)

Last week was crazy busy (3 conferences, report cards and my Dad’s memorial service) so I’m catching up on my November committment. As Richard Byrne laid out today in his post, “Voice Recording Tools“, audio can be very effective for both students as content, as product or as feedback from teachers.

The Class/Staff OneNotes in Teams – Nudging Permissions

So Microsoft Teams EDU is a new layer added to Sharepoint/Office365 to make the space workable. Sharepoint/Office365 is ridiculously powerful, but like all ridiculously powerful applications, they need mediation to make them open to the average user.  (For regular OneNote Staff Notebooks, see here: Nudging the OneNote Staff Notebook Permissions) When you create a new Team, […]
