Let’s learn about One Note with Dr. Tom Grissom. But perhaps to understand why I’m a Microsoft One Note fan, I’d like to tell you a story from several months a go. This past fall, I ran into my former student, Miller, at an away football game. She had made the University of Georgia website as a top student and was just starting medical school.
As it goes when I connect with very dear students, we had a long talk about her life and future. She’s truly exceptional and was such a joy to teach. Then, she said,
“Do you know the most useful thing you ever taught me?”
I didn’t know and she said,
“One Note. I pulled in my professor’s slides and took notes. I could do so many useful things. It was the best thing you’ve ever taught me.”
So, I admit, I dusted off some old lessons and did a little more teaching with One Note this year. This jewel of a notetaking app is free on all platforms. It is also the subject of today’s Tech Tool Tuesday with Dr. Tom Grissom. Tom is using One Note with his higher ed students in all kinds of ways.
In today’s show, Tom shares:
- An explanation of One Note
- The collaborative features of One Note
- How One Note relates to current cognitive theories of learning
I hope you enjoy today’s show with Tom!
