Supporting student transitions into Secondary - OneNote project Info session for Special Education high school teachers

Preparing for the “Big T” with OneNote:
OneNote Secondary Teacher Information Session

On Thursday June 12th 2014, Assistive Technology Itinerant Resource Teachers, Renee Keberer and Christina Mathura facilitated an important OneNote Information Session for secondary special education teachers. This group of curriculum leaders and assistant curriculum leaders of special education were specifically invited to attend this session. These teachers represent the high schools who will be receiving our first round of students transitioning to grade 9 in September, having received OneNote training with a SEA tablet device. 

ACL of Special Education, Krista Petersen shares how the SEA tablet devices are charged and securely stored in her classroom at Lawrence Park C.I.

At this information session, secondary teachers were;

  • Introduced to the intermediate pilot project and its goals of supporting personal organization and independence through the use of OneNote
  • Presented with ideas of the ways in which OneNote and the tablet devices are being supported in secondary GLE classes at Lawrence Park Collegiate, by ACL of Special Education, Krista Petersen
  • Provided with the opportunity to plan for the storage and support of the tablet devices and OneNote software throughout subject classes and GLE in grade 9

This information session enabled teachers to begin planning for the transition of incoming grade 9 students from the OneNote Pilot Project, entering high school in September 2014. 

Secondary teachers collaborated with colleagues to discuss and complete an individual “Entry Plan” Activity in order to begin thinking about how students will access their devices and how OneNote software will be supported in subject classes.
