OneNote / Class Notebook-4/13/17

The OneNote Class Notebook app lets a teacher quickly set up a personal workspace for every student, a content library for handouts, and a collaboration space for lessons and creative activities, all within one powerful notebook. The new free Class Notebook add-in for the OneNote desktop (2013 or 2016) is designed to help teachers save time and be even more efficient with their Class Notebooks. The add-in includes page and section distribution and quick review of student work. While the focus of the in-service will be on the Class Notebook, we will cover some basic OneNote Notebook tips, as well. Come with an idea of a unit you’d like to set up during our session so you leave with a notebook you can use!!
