Good morning. My name is Adrian Edgar, I’m Director of ICT at Culford School, an independent day and boarding school for girls and boys aged 3 to 18. I’d like to talk to you about how the School have started to use of One Note in some subjects. One Note allows all pupils at the access school work and share the same experience be they a day pupil or boarder. I’d like to show you how in this presentation how some departments, have adopted One Note as our default means of notebook and textbook and then by linking this to SharePoint 2010 we have improved pupil teacher collaboration.
Licensing notes from Sean: “If you license Microsoft Office on a volume licensing agreement such as the Enrolment for Education Solution, then you are already covered for OneNote”
Gathering notes, pictures, drawings and even sound clips.

One Note for us represents the way forward in terms of assisting pupils to capture their ideas and their work. They get to use a variety of media to take their notes, explain their thinking and provide evidence of progression. Pupils and staff are already seeing the benefit in terms of organisation. No more untidy files, no more missing homework. By sharing Notebooks online using Sharepoint 2010, pupils and teachers are able to discuss and capture their discussions, forward ideas to others and generally raise the level of communication during assessment.
Lets look first at a developing idea in Modern Languages that focuses purely on the use of One Note 2010. In German lessons pupils make use of One Note in a variety of ways to improve their language skills.
The fundamental concepts of language teaching are all encapsulated within One Note. Pupils can read the language, listen to the language and indeed use One Note to speak and record the language. Engaging learners. The very fundamentals of learning a language are all used. Lets look at our course which is based around German for business.
Show how pupils can read and listen, record their own dialogue Complete that boring grammar homework but then record themselves reading the sentences for the teacher. Pupils get used to hearing themselves speak a language and are unafraid when it comes to speaking tests.
Examples just in case

In A Level ICT, I’ve been able to develop the concept of sharing and collaboration on a small scale. With an A Level group of just two pupils, both needing organisation support, we set about developing a way to organise their theory notes and share their ideas with the teacher. Find me an ICT student who wants to use pen and paper. Shared experience – same experience at home and in school.
Over time, pupils build a portfolio of their theory work all organised and ready for revision. Pupils and teachers are kept on the ball by the use of Outlook scheduling tasks and alerts There is no escape Pupils and teachers increase discussion and improve the quality of assessment.
Pupils share their One Note book through the Learning Gateway and invite their teacher to share access. Its that simple. Outlook even sends me notification of the share. Note the presence indicator from Lync. – More about this later.
Here you can see an example from One Note. A homework task has been set with a start and due date. Pupils receive email notification that I’ve added a task to their notebooks and I’ve got access 24/7 to their homework Notebooks as its all in One Note. Its all done through one note and their outlook calendar – nothing new
…..and completed it on time. He’s my alert from a pupil to tell me he’s completed his homework.
Benefits to marking process. Much more depth to diagnostic comments generating dialogue Easy to track progress. Brings the concept of Social Computing in to education – Presence – Ask me about your homework. So how is this all done? Through the wonders of Sharepoint and My Sites….
Pupils get to work at home or in school in exactly the same environment. I get to see their work as soon as its complete I can mark their work and provide diagnostic comments right there and then and generate discussion with the pupil. One Note even confirms for me that they have produced the work…..
As the notebook is shared the pupil can also see and receive and alert when the teacher has done his bit.
As a side benefit, we’ve found that Quality of feedback improved. Easier to provide marks that mean something because its easier to add comments that promote further discussion.
So finally, the key example as far as we are concerned Ties in the concept of Capturing thoughts and ideas, Organising Work, Anytime Collaboration Again sharing through Sharepoint 2010
No more text books No more exercise books Audio and visual feedback
All material created and packaged ready to share.
So lets look at the process and I’m sure you will agree how easy it really is….
Live demo unpacking new History Course notes Emphasis on sharing / collaboration Access to their work from internet via Learning Gateway whenever they want. Teacher ability to see work online and mark at home. Show pupil work in F4 history course with teacher comments etc
To conclude, I’d just like to show a short video from Varsity College in Australia. I think it demonstrates clearly the key advantages of using Microsoft OneNote in the classroom.
Thank you for your attention, I’m available on the demo pods if you have further questions, or feel free to contact me directly. If you have questions regarding licencing please speak to Sean or any of the Microsoft team.
