In this episode, you will learn how Microsoft OneNote can be used to help you organize not only your classroom but just about every part of your daily activities.  We are also pleased to announce the second annual OneNote Online Conference happening from November 7-13.  Once again, TeacherCast will be sponsoring the conference as well as being a featured presenter.  Please take a moment and check out the conference at https://learnonconference.com/

How can OneNote be used to meet your needs?

  • Event Planning
      • Plan an event (like a conference, party or carnival) with OneNote by having a section to brainstorm by hand, create a table of deliverable items, create daily tasks lists, link to Excel documents with more detail contact lists, create rough drafts of emails, store PDF contracts, save links to share, and take screenshots of research inspiration (photos, website design, flyer design).
  • Make team meetings dynamic
      • While teams are meeting, make notes that are meaningful and useful. Add documents, insert links, tag people for “to do” items, and link notes to Outlook meetings.
  • Travel Light with OneNote
      • Keep all your travel arrangements in OneNote (airline, hotel, rental car), print important emails & flyers with information about where you are going into OneNote, and use Office Lens to insert PDFs of your receipts (if you are lucky enough to be reimbursed). Any presentations you are sharing (PPT, Sway or other) can also be stored on OneNote, just in case! Then use OneNote on your smartphone when you travel to stay super organized and travel light!
  • Organize your Podcasting
    • Microsoft OneNote can be used to help organize all of your podcast needs. Simply use its infinite canvas to gather your thoughts on show topics, create show notes, and store your audio/video.
