Microsoft introduces OneNote Class Notebook, aims to digitize classrooms


With the world’s fast-paced technological advancements, some members of the Philippine academe are now seeing the potential, and looking forward to having digitized classrooms with OneNote Class Notebook, an app for Office 365 that lets teachers create a digital notebook for each student and distribute their personalized lesson materials and homework, which their students can access anywhere, anytime, and even offline. Prior to class, students may download the notes they need.

As their teacher discusses the lesson that’s projected on the screen, they can edit and write their own notes right on their own copies. They can also manage their notes and tasks as OneNote carries with it a built-in to-do list feature, a camera and a recorder, productive tools a student can use for academic purposes.

In classrooms, devices such as Lumia 640 XL, can be used to replace their paper notebooks; while at home, they can use the same device or more affordable Lumia models, like Lumia 535 or 432, to complete requirements for the next day. They can edit their work, and even ask for their teacher’s input.


For educators, there is the OneNote Staff Notebook, another app for Office 365 that lets educational staff leaders set up a personal work-space for every teacher and manage educator collaboration in an entire school or district rather than just individual classes.

With summer vacation over and school to soon reopen, it is good to know that there is now an option that may allow students and teachers to say goodbye to the struggle of decoding their notes or decluttering rooms of unwanted paper. One Note can bring your classroom into the digital age without paying the hefty price tag.
