2) I am a 1:1 campus this coming year and I want to use digital notebooks with flip book tabs - lots of color, fill in the blanks, and digital notebook templates. Please give me some advice and suggestions. Thanks!
3) I am having trouble getting my digital notebook to transfer into Google Drive. Do you have any suggestions?
5) I am interested in paperless classroom resources and trying to decide which item to purchase. I would like to create custom digital notebooks for my own classroom. I use Google Classroom and my students are 1:1 with iPads. I don't intend on selling anything. I don't want to recreate the wheel if I don't have to. I teach younger students (grades 1 and 2).
6) Many of my students do not have access to computers or the internet at home. Is there a way to use a tech resource in hard copy form? Can I print them out blank and have the students complete them and add them to their interactive notebooks?
7) Can I create/share/monitor digital notebooks in Microsoft OneNote as you do in Google Drive? Do they look as good in Microsoft OneNote? I would love to use the Google Drive resources, but my school will be using Microsoft Classroom next year, so I feel I need to utilize that.
8) I am very interested in using digital notebooks with an iPad. I am wondering what they will actually look on an iPad. How exactly will students interact with them? Have people used them on the iPad before?
***When using a digital notebook you don’t have to share the entire notebook file with your students at one time. Here are your steps to sharing one or two pages at a time:
1. Share one page at a time with your students instead of an entire digital notebook
2. Save the file to your Google Drive. Make a copy. Name the copy whatever you want to focus on your task. Example: “Macbeth cell phone text” “The Outsiders plot structure”
3. Then, delete all the pages you are not using for that lesson. You should only have the pages left that you are using for that lesson.
10) We are going 1:1 next year and using Blackboard for the first time too. (Yikes!) Will this work with Blackboard? I have used interactive notebooks for years and digital notebooks sound awesome!
11) I love the idea of an interactive notebook, but we need to limit our number of copies (plus I do not have enough time for cutting and pasting). Do you think this will be helpful for high school math? My school will reimburse me.
12) I am very interested in digital task cards. Will I be able to edit the slides for what we are doing specifically in class?
One of the best perks of using the digital task cards is that you do not have to worry about storage, cutting, or laminating. It is also really annoying to have a student lose one of the cards during the school day. Students can work directly in the task card file, record their answers in a doc on their drive, or on a separate notebook page.
