OneNote digital notebooks to support dyslexic learners


23rd March, 2023 (4:00pm - 5:00pm)

£30 per individual.

60 minute Online Learning workshop.

OneNote is part of the Office 365 suite of applications and for Scottish teachers and pupils can be freely accessed through Glow. OneNote digital notebooks are the ideal way for a learner to keep all their school work, revision and resources organised using a separate section of the notebook for each curricular area. There is no need to save any information when it is added to the notebook as this happens automatically and you can open OneNote on any device (it syncs automatically!) and access your notebook.

Not only does OneNote allow dyslexic learners to keep their schoolwork organised, it has excellent built in literacy support tools to help them with reading, writing and spelling. With a click of the Share button, the teacher can get access which allows for discrete support and feedback. It really is an excellent all-round assistive tool for all learners.

  • How to create a OneNote digital jotter.
  • How to use OneNote assistive tools to support literacy difficulties.
  • How to support a learner’s organisational difficulties.
