The second phase of the Assistive Technology team's OneNote pilot project launched on Thursday, January 23 at the Terraview Learning Centre. Special Education teachers, who teach a variety of exceptional intermediate student groups reviewed project goals and had a chance to explore the OneNote Notebook software. While trying aspects of the software such as inserting images, audio and drawing, the group made connections about how features of OneNote supports student organization and planning skills.
