Intermediate OneNote pilot project launch

OneNote to support Special Education students pilot launch

The first group of intermediate Special Education teachers attended the OneNote pilot project Meet and Greet today at Terraview Learning Centre. The  half-day sessions were led by the Assistive Technology's itinerant resource teacher team.  As well, trainers Martha Jez and Dustin Jez supported pilot teachers to explore the OneNote software by having them explore an actual student's sample grade 11 OneNote notebook.

This is the first phase of the Intermediate OneNote pilot. Special Education classrooms such as: Intermediate HSP, Behaviour ISP and Autism Spectrum Disorder ISPs are represented during this phase. The teachers and students will go through the OneNote journey supporting organization and/or facilitated transitions of the needs of their students. The project focuses on strategies of using the software to support student learning needs rather than the use of the software just itself.
