We’re all learners! That means what teachers need to do and what students need to do are not that different, and they are inextricably connected.

Microsoft OneNote gets the similarities and differences, and smooths out the places where hiccups traditionally occur. From paper clutter to learning differences, and from curriculum development to professional collaboration, the needs of everyone in the learning equation can be addressed with this free tool.

All the ways teachers and students take, make, and use notes—research, practice, study, making thinking visible, lesson planning, communication, organization, collaboration—can be done more flexibly, efficiently, and faster with OneNote.

You’ll learn to use the tools, and most importantly, to apply them effectively to advance your goals as an educator, whether that means not carrying stacks of paper between home and school or helping your introverted learners come forward more easily in class or communicating with administrators about curriculum.

This is a comprehensive course! Videos, webinars, articles, playlists, and infographics take you from the details of how to set up notes and digital binders to case studies of how practicing educators, real students, and school sites use OneNote. You’ll get curriculum development support, guidance on collaboration and communication, and tips and tricks that take you from effective user to OneNote master artist!

As always, you can choose an AOK option that not only demonstrates your competency, but that also results in curriculum you can use with your kids. Our credentialed reviewers use this rubric to review your work. The badge you’ll earn shows students, parents, colleagues, admins, and others that your expertise with OneNote and its application have been demonstrated and verified by trustworthy credentialed reviewers.
