From Skitch blur cMartyn Call, acting PT Maths at Tynecastle High, has been using Class Notebook with his Nat 5 Class this year.

Each pupil accesses OneNote via the App on their iPad.

Each pupil has their own area within class notebook for their classwork making it a virtual jotter.

 

 

From Skitch b

 

When teaching the whole class Martyn uses the smartboard and anything he does automatically appears in the ’Content Library’.

This means that the pupils are not required to copy anything down.

He can also easily add the Success criteria and he has personalised the ‘tags’ to distinguish the type of task that they are allocated.

 

 

 

The Notebook can also be used for tracking.

Tasks carried out in a jotter can easily be captured and embedded in Class Notebook.

 

From Skitch 1

The pupils in the class said:-

“It’s better for revising and note taking and you can do your homework in one area and it allows you to draw directly on to the app.”

“I like it because it tracks what I do well and what I need to work on.”

“The benefits are it’s better for revising and no paper. Learning is easy – you don’t need to use your jotter.”

Martyn commented that:-

“OneNote allows me to interact with students in real time. Teaching with OneNote (which syncs with student iPads) has been great in building up class notes. The content library and personal spaces allow me to give out homework and feedback easily.”

OneNote is also being used in these other areas of the school:-

Physics – use as textbook

PSE – use as portfolio

PE – textbook and peer feedback
