First thing’s first, what is OneNote Class Notebook?

OneNote in educationIf you haven’t heard of it before, you might not be aware of the wealth of benefits that OneNote Class Notebook brings the classroom and education. Class Notebook gives all of your students their own electronic work space, a content library with a wealth of teacher-created resources, and a huge space for them to work together academically and collaborate creatively. It’s a space for teachers to give feedback and support students immediately, directly into a student workbook. OneNote is a truly creative platform allowing your students to type, handwrite, draw or capture from the web – all on one device. This functionality means that OneNote Class Notebook bridges the gap between a traditional pen & paper teaching method and interactive technology learning.

Why use OneNote Class Notebook?

Part of the reason that OneNote class Notebook is so successful in education is that is has been developed for education in order to improve learning by engaging more students. This engagement is achieved by improving feedback and handout efficiency and overall increased student participation.

These improvements are designed to make One Note Class Notebook easier and better to use – the new ‘Manage Notebooks’ button, as an example, allows a teacher to see all Class Notebooks on one page making it simpler to perform general admin tasks.
