Five reasons to learn Math with OneNote

So, Alice Keeler – @alicekeeler– who is an amazing blogger and an incredible resource for those using Google products, posted 60 Ways Math Teachers can use Google Classroom last April.  It came across my desk the other day and, since school hadn’t started yet, I thought it might be a good reflection for me on how one could do similar tasks […]

Hacking the OneNote Class Notebook Part III : Planning in _Private

I realized the other day while writing Parts 1 (link) & 2 (link) that I’d never talked about the Private Teacher Section Group in our OneNote Binders… During our first year with the OneNote Binders (our initial design that ended up becoming the OneNote Class Notebook) we quickly realized we needed a private space in […]
