The webinar description
In this webinar Freddy spoke about the use of technology in the classroom and how it presents enormous advantages and opportunities for both the teacher and learner to enter the space of 21st Century Connected Learning. It also comes with its own risks and challenges. He explained that Microsoft OneNote Class Notebook is a vital tool to bring the teacher back into control and lead the process of learning. Freddy showed us how to use OneNote Class Notebook creator to create a Class Notebook with three main sub-notebooks namely:
- Student Notebooks: private notebooks that are shared between each teacher and their individual students. Teachers can access these notebooks at any time, but students cannot see other students’ notebooks.
- Content Library: a notebook for teachers to share course materials with students. Teachers can add and edit its materials, but for students, the notebook is read-only.
- Collaboration Space: a notebook for all students and the teacher in the class to share, organize, and collaborate.
