Think In Ink – Examples Of Digital Inking

Video

This is a good video showing the various ways that Digital Inking can be used in schools. These examples are taken from the Tanglin Trust School in Singapore and include ideas from:

  • Automatic citations using the OneNote Clipper and then annotating the content directly in OneNote.
  • Sketching scientific diagrams in OneNote to reinforce learning and ideas (in this example, around erosion).
  • Language features in English – highlighting verbs/adjectives in poetry.
  • Using the Learning Tools (Immersive Reader) to support literacy in all subjects.
  • Maths annotations by clipping graphs made in Desmos and then inking over the top of the graph in OneNote.
  • Ink Replay – learning the correct stroke order of Chinese characters by using Ink Replay and then attempting to replicate this in OneNote.

When mentioning Office365, people still confuse what it means and ask “oh you mean Microsoft Word?”

The Office365 solution is made up of a number of different products and solutions and the above six minute introduction video does a great high level overview of these. This would be a useful video to share with staff or show at a professional learning session to help reinforce that Office365 means more than the traditional Word/PowerPoint/Excel combo!

A great blog post on LinkedIn that highlights why Office365 is more than just “Office online” was authored by Kirsty McGrath and can be read here. She created a great infographic to highlight the features here:
