Leverage OneNote for better organizational collaboration Learning how to leverage the local and cloud-based features of OneNote can give you a significant organizational edge. With OneNote installed you'll notice a OneNote button in the Home tab on the Ribbon in Outlook 2010. With an email highlighted, you can click this button and the "Select Location in OneNote" dialog window will appear. This allows you to send important messages into the OneNote notebook of your choice. Likewise, Internet Explorer has OneNote integration allowing you to send a webpage to OneNote. These features are great for organizing your important documents into a powerful, portable, cross-platform and cloud-enabled note and collaboration utility - but unless you have a system for managing those documents, you might find yourself trading one mess for another. Notebooks, sections, and pages The compromise you make with OneNote is a trade between powerful features and an easy to master interface.

What The Data Says About Students' 21st Century Readiness What The Data Says About Students’ 21st Century Readiness 21st century skills is a term that’s been bandied about for over a decade now.

While there’s plenty of tools, leadership, strategies, and even rhetoric surrounding this discussion, what’s there’s less of is data. The following infographic from learning.com/21cs helps soften that reality a bit by graphically displaying the data from over 500,000 elementary and middle school assessments framed around ISTE’s technology standards. It then goes on to offer areas of strength (digital citizenship and technology operation) and weakness (research, critical thinking, problem solving). But hey, all is not lost.

This is often because most institutions already have rigorous, established curricula with little wiggle room – and this is especially true in schools subject to state and federal testing.
