We are extremely excited to announce that our OneNote project is now underway! Twenty-five teachers attended professional development sessions at either our Burnamthorpe or Terraview learning centres. Teachers learned about OneNote’s many features available to support our Intermediate students in Special Education classes with organizational and other executive function needs.
The day's group of intermediate special education teachers had the opportunity to explore the OneNote software and create notebooks and pages of their own. They also learned how to use tools such as templates, tables, and tagging and engaged in meaningful professional dialogue on how these tools could benefit the students they are supporting.

Teachers learned how the use of assistive technology tools will better enable their students to be successful not only in their Special Education classrooms, but also in their rotary subject classrooms as well and that this will help to better prepare them for their eventual transition to secondary.
Teachers share all the things they have learned about the OneNote software.
Teachers had the opportunity to practice doing research as their students might, using assistive technology tools.
