Reflecting on our 2013-2014 OneNote Pilot Project
Our OneNote Pilot Project was born from our team’s desire to support the transition of our at-risk students with special educational needs move from intermediate to secondary school. Many of our students struggle with executive functioning, particularly when it comes to organization and planning which is why we chose OneNote.
Microsoft OneNote is a digital notebook in which the student can directly make notes and gather material. The student can collect, organize, and share their notes in this electronic format that is a substitute for the traditional binder – no more lost handouts or schoolwork!
During our Pilot we supported 216 students at 26 schools across the Toronto District School Board. Of those students:
- 73% say that they finish and hand in their class work, homework and assignment on time always or most of the time
- 75% say that since using OneNote, they use their class time appropriately to complete their work always or most of the time
