Challenge

Learning works best when people are engaged with ideas, together. But the students' materials and the teacher's materials and all the feedback that passes between them have always been locked away in pieces of paper or documents stored on a computer. We've found that the OneNote Binder helps to solve these issues.

Solution

We will create a OneNote Notebook system integrated with Office 365 so that any teacher could go to Office 365, hit a button and generate a OneNote Notebook for every class, with shared and protected spaces for every teacher, student and group within the class, with special spaces for assignments, for private notes, for group work, and for digital portfolios. And every parent should have read-only access to their student's content and to the material the teacher provides.

Long-Term Impact

Since the OneNote Binder solution is based on Office365 ANY school, teacher, student or parent with internet access could set up a class OneNote and have it for immediate use. The OneNote Binders could be (in fact, have been) used for a distributed course with students contributing from around the world. By opening the source code to the world, whole new environments will rise as educators, students and parents share their expertise.
