Literacy & Personalised Learning (OneNote)

For many schools Literacy is top of the agenda, so most days, among other tasks, students take part in a Word Association activity and each week we have a class spelling test.

Typically these types of activities involve printing 30 copies of the words, cutting down to size and handing out to students to glue into their books.

With spellings, a teacher would differentiate the learning by splitting the class into 3 groups, with each group having a set of words appropriate to their ability.

It is estimated that this process of printing and handing out worksheets happens 3-4 times each school day, in each of Key Stage 2 class. 

Introducing OneNote

By using OneNote Class Notebook, worksheets or activities can be distributed in seconds from the teacher’s device straight into the student’s digital exercise books.

A unique version is automatically saved for each individual child and accessible by any teacher at any time. This also makes it much easier to personalise the learning for each individual student.

The Year 5 teacher fed back:
‘Whereas previously I had 3 spelling groups within the class, now there are 7 groups and I anticipate a further split as it becomes manageable. This means that each child is getting learning resources directly applicable and personalised for them without a massively increased workload.‘
