OneNote! "What are you waiting for Math Teachers?"

So this post is prompted by Dave Sladkey's post earlier on using Google Drive, namely Google Drive! What are you waiting for Math Teachers?

Now Google Drive/Google Docs has much greater visibility than Microsoft OneNote and even though I'm a long-time GDocs/Drive user I would likely recommend the OneNote Notebook approach over the GoogleDrive.  But I realized that maybe folks didn't know how easy it was to set something up.

Thus...

Go to OneNote.com and, if you don't already have a Microsoft account, sign up for one.

Click on CREATE and choose OneNote Notebook

Now, you can think of a OneNote Notebook as a "Google Drive Folder".  It has Sections (like Google Drive Subfolders) and Pages (like Google Drive Files).  But these pages can contain anything.  And I mean anything.  They're like wiki pages in that you can drop text, images, links to other pages, you can embed files & videos... you name it!

After you're done playing with it (and you should play with it) you can click on SHARE in the upper right corner and GET A LINK.  Now, you can set it up so that others can edit (maybe you have a co-teacher?) or just to view

And ... everything syncs back to OneNote.

For a brief overview of how we use OneNote at our school, here's a YouTube playlist of some of our support videos.
