Desmos, OneNote & Replay

So using Desmos activities are a great way to encourage exploration and discussion in math class -- if you haven't tried them, I encourage it.  They're collected at https://teacher.desmos.com/ 

But ... Desmos doesn't give you quite enough.  It doesn't have a way of capturing the work that the student does within their space, and it doesn't allow for annotation of class contributions as we come together to discuss.  Well, not surprisingly, OneNote comes to the rescue. 
Using the Windows shortcut Windows-Shift-S it is really quick to snag the Desmos screen and pop it into a waiting OneNote page.  From there, we can grab our pen and (using wireless projection) talk about what all the different responses mean and where to go from there.
(An aside : one of the nice features of Desmos activities are the way you can hit PAUSE and it will pause all the screens of the students working.  I always give them a heads up "10 seconds to pause..." and it's refreshing to hear a few groans as indication that at least they're engaged)


Now, you can see my scribbles on the snapshot of the Desmos activity screens above.  We can talk about what is right, what needs improvement and expand on their ideas.  And then, when we unPause Desmos, they can go back and adjust their answers with their new perspectives. And, of course, all of our notes are stored in the OneNote ClassNotebook, so they don't have to go back into Desmos to do their review or homework questions -- the important pieces are all right there.
An added benefit is that with the Windows10 OneNote App, the students can also replay the ink to see how it is sequenced, as shown in the video below:

Documenting student thinking, encouraging discussion and reflection and critiquing the reasoning of others are all aspects of learning I practice in class -- and I like how two of my favourite applications encourage them. 
(Since November is "Write your novel" month http://nanowrimo.orghttp://nanowrimo.org, I thought I would take this opportunity to write a novel-in-pieces, and post a little bit of writing every day.  Here's #1!)

One of The cool things about casual chats are that you can enjoy the benefit of complete anonymity without having to disclose identity upfront. This is a wise decision and there's a certain level of comfort and protection so one can come clean and chat their heart out. These chat rooms especially help those people who are depressed and want to let it all out anonymous chat. Live chat with strangers also helps people suffering from anxiety.

So you want to hack your OneNote Class Notebook

Taking a brief break from my "Getting Started with OneNote Class Notebook" series (you can start that one here )... This is a little advanced so if you're not comfortable setting permissions inside of Office365 you may want to avoid this.  Or set up a Class Notebook to play with so that it doesn't affect any existing Class Notebooks.  Yeah, the latter is a good option. One of the great powers of OneNote is that you can do some really neat permissioning of the Section Tabs. When the Notebook is created, of course, it gives you an "open permissions" on the Collaboration Space and student-read-only on the Content Library.  And then each student space is wide open to each individual student. But we've found that occasionally you want to mix up the permissions a little.  For example, you could create a space in a student section for your private notes that the student couldn't see, or maybe you want a tab in the Collaboration Space that students cou

Equation Editor comes to OneNote (Win10)

Folks have been waiting a while to get Equation Editor into OneNote (Win10 version... it's been in 2016/Desktop for forever). Now, the funny thing is this won't make a huge deal for me. I tend to just write my equations out, and if it's for more serious distribution I tend to write it in Word.  But for others, this may improve the way they work in OneNote.  And I also think I'm not allowed to call it Equation Editor, but I'm going to ignore that. Make sure you've updated your OneNote (go to the Store and check for any Downloads & Updates). I recommend folks visit the Store regularly to get any updates. I'm never sure how often it looks for updates on its own and Microsoft has moved to a continual, if gradual update process for all of its apps. To start entering equations, click on the INSERT ribbon and then on EQUATION.  You may think, "why not just click on the Math button?" but that is to translate digital ink or text writing into a mat
