Technology is giving us the opportunity to provide our students with different ways of instruction.
Emily Saunders (27 Apr 2018)
Takes you through practical ways to implement.
Guadalupe Novak (22 Apr 2018)
Love the idea behind a paperless classroom! Our day to day activities are highly technologically integrated & I believe that this will be the new way to reach our students in the future.
Tryna Smith (19 Apr 2018)
I’m glad she explained that kids need to have paper integrated into lessons as well.
Colleen Brumme (14 Apr 2018)
I thought the information around one note was awesome. In order for me to use it in my classroom I first must become familiar with it. Great webinar.
Jennifer Davis (11 Apr 2018)
The content was good though a bit out of date.
stephanie mcknight (11 Apr 2018)
Catherine Clarke (5 Apr 2018)
It is great to learn different ways. One can learn from other perspectives even if they are not adapted completely. To have a completely paperless classroom I find a little much. Balanced, I think paper, technology, and interaction have a place. Rather than entirely create a paperless classroom, I believe I would incorporate some of these ideas to reduce the amount of paper so as to engage the students in different ways.
Mr William Heikell (4 Apr 2018)
Great class!
Natalie Music (2 Apr 2018)
This was a very interesting course that will be useful moving toward being paperless.
Dona Doolin (14 Mar 2018)
Excellent tools that can be used with the students.
Ms Angela Luke (8 Mar 2018)
Lots of good information
Jason Morris (1 Mar 2018)
Very helpful information for my classroom
David Taylor (28 Feb 2018)
Very Good
Randi Watson (27 Feb 2018)
This course was ok, a bit outdated.
Mrs Amy Amacker (8 Feb 2018)
I came away with some good ideas fro iterating technology in the classroom but I am not convinced that a "paperless" classroom would be effective.
Branda Barnas (6 Feb 2018)
I feel like some of the information is outdated. Great idea and information. We now have google classroom that has much more benefits than what was in this video. Still a lot of the content was good to know.
Melissa Almand (3 Feb 2018)
Thank you for sharing your success with the Microsoft One Note. I look forward to working with it.
Lauren King (2 Feb 2018)
Very good class!!
Trish Pacheco (28 Jan 2018)
I've seen lots of different ways to integrate technology in the classroom, this was something I had never seen before. I think it would definitely take some time to learn "how" to put this tool into use, but I can see the value in what it can bring to the classroom.
Kimberly Wilson Parsons (18 Jan 2018)
Audio with slides. Great information, but not personally engaging. VERY hard for me to pay attention.
Emily Riggs (17 Jan 2018)
I appreciate that she didn't try to present a paperless classroom as preparation-free. There's still work that has to go into planning and assessing. Additionally, most people assume a "paperless" classroom is one filled with technology. While that can be the case, there are so many more tools out there, such as white boards, kinetic-based activities, songs/sayings, mnemonics, etc. A paperless classroom can give students a change of pace from the ordinary paper-pencil routine.
Ms Shayla Ray (16 Jan 2018)
I like the visuals and reminder that switching over to full paperless can be intimidating for both the teacher and the student.
Ms Debra Stewart (2 Jan 2018)
Very relevant with generation Z students.
Denise Littlejohn (2 Jan 2018)
Interesting use of Microsoft One Note and other technology sources for classroom use.
mary crean (31 Dec 2017)
I am looking forwrad to see how I can incorporate some of this in my classroom at the DAEP setting.
Mrs Debra Kagle (2 Dec 2017)
Very helpful course.
Irene Flores (21 Jul 2017)
This course was very helpful! Lots of great ideas!
Mrs Mikeela Hudson (17 May 2017)
This course had several online resources and carefully walked through a few options of how to create a paperless (or less paper) classroom.
Mrs Michelle Atkeisson (13 May 2017)
Marla Perez (12 May 2017)
I enjoyed gaining knowledge on how to slowly release students into a "paperless environment" and the proper steps for composing a digital classroom.
Stephany Goodwin (8 May 2017)
good course, a bit long. but a lot of good info!
Adriana Shed (8 May 2017)
I was required to take this course for my educator prep. program.
Mrs rebecca harris (7 May 2017)
great tips and ideas
Mrs Brittney MiShaw (26 Apr 2017)

Mrs Sandra Paulk (25 Apr 2017)
This lesson was informative on how to use less paper activities in my classroom and make learning more technology based for my students.
Andrea McKiel (24 Apr 2017)
Thank you for the suggestions.
Mrs Bianca Moser (24 Apr 2017)
This was a very informative course! I am excited to apply to my classroom.
Mr Clint Helpenstill (23 Apr 2017)
The paperless classroom E-Learning was informative. It is not possible as of right now for my class to go paperless due to all students not having technology access everyday. I feel in the future my classes will be paperless. This presentation gave me good information to help getting me to think about ways to more use technology in my classroom.
jeff coop (21 Apr 2017)
Other than what at times felt like a landslide of information there was some really interesting information discussed in this presentation
Mr charles griste (10 Apr 2017)
This was good but In my experience of teaching science, kids need to learn to think by applying a concept to real life. This is what engineering is today: Problem Solving. In other words apply what you learn in school to a real world problem.
Mrs Julie Sholl (10 Apr 2017)
Although very informative and quite impressive, I was overwhelmed with the amount of preparation, knowledge and collaboration that is needed in order to get a paper classroom going with OneNote. I can see this working more efficiently as a team effort between multiple classroom teachers.
Mrs Regenia Dixon (7 Apr 2017)
Very good information.
Mrs Heather Loop (6 Apr 2017)
I appreciated the amount of time taken to dig deep into One Note as a great tool to enhance paperless learning.
Ms Cristina Galindo (6 Apr 2017)
I gained a lot of different ideas and methods on how to incorporate a paperless classroom/ technology into a classroom and also how to accommodate different thinking and personality types
Amanda Hydock (5 Apr 2017)
Great ideas to use in the classroom to phase out old paper style work!
Karen McCoskey (3 Apr 2017)
I learned more about other options for students to save digital work, and I learned about figuring out logistics beforehand.
patricia ellis (31 Mar 2017)
Thought it was very informative.
William McGonagle (30 Mar 2017)
Awesome course.
Dr Brian Watson (29 Mar 2017)
Mr Mark Kesselring (26 Mar 2017)
I am so excited to make my music class paperless. Maybe next I can make it chairless, instrumentless, and teacherless.
Barbara Ryza (23 Mar 2017)
I can't wait to try out these ideas! Especially OneNote.
Dr kaylynn vrabel (22 Mar 2017)
I love that these ideas are not super tech savoy. They are things that I can use even with 4th graders.
Dr Olayinka Aikens (21 Mar 2017)
Since I teach technology courses this gave me a new perspective on how to use even more programs with the paperless classroom.
Mrs Katherine Shevchenko (13 Mar 2017)
Technology is changing the world and teachers need to engage and be prepared to help students meet the demands of tomorrow. I believe there are merits to going paperless as it can challenge and inspire teachers to create lesson plans that will fulfill all the different learning styles.
Mrs Bonnie Johnston (1 Mar 2017)
This video provided many helpful resources that I can use in the classroom.
Mrs Jessica Tyler (28 Feb 2017)
Thank you for the online classroom -- this gave me some different resources to try in my classroom.
Mrs Esmeralda Villarreal (28 Feb 2017)
the videos are very informative and helpful especially being a first time teacher
Miss Laura Ruiz (27 Feb 2017)
I knew in a paperless classroom is not 100% technology, because there are times that the paper " old-fashioned" is way better than teaching it with technology. And if your going to to a paperless classroom it does it time because some of the students or all are not use to it .
Susan McCool (19 Feb 2017)
Preparation seems to be the key to a successful paperless classroom.
Mr Brendan Carney (15 Feb 2017)
Miss Mary Ketchum (4 Feb 2017)
Lots of good information. This will be applicable for students with poor fine motor skills.
Mrs Karen French (4 Feb 2017)
lots of ideas without the paper
Mrs Kimberly Nowell (23 Jan 2017)
This was a wonderful workshop! The presenter was easy to listen to, knowledgeable and a great presenter. I walked away with lots of ideas and resources.
Mrs Teresa Crosno (12 Jan 2017)
Thank you for all the information and resources this course gave to me and my teachers.
Mrs Amanda LeDoux M.Ed (4 Jan 2017)
It was very good!
Mrs staci korkowski (31 Dec 2016)
This was okay for my current classroom.
Mrs Courtney Davis (18 Dec 2016)
I love the idea of paperless classrooms! I think it would also allow for students to be more engaged and alleviate the "I can't find my paper excuse". However, I teach Kinder and except for the smart board and pre-approved computer apps, they don't get a chance to use a lot of technology... that is my goal this next semester.
Mr Larry Kingsbury (19 Nov 2016)
This was a good course, but is now a bit dated. I an a PBL instructor. We use Google docs, rather than One Note. Heard some helpful ideas, but most of it was really better suited for teachers with no technical teaching experience.
Mr Francisco Torres (18 Nov 2016)
Excellent overview on the importance of using technology not as an end but as a tool for student growth.
Mrs Janet Pena (12 Nov 2016)
This webinar was really interesting and helpful
Mrs Karrie Cowan (9 Nov 2016)
I like the self paced videos.
Mrs erin parris (8 Nov 2016)
Good information
Ms Mikehail Williamson (7 Nov 2016)
This has some good information for older students. I would have like to have some information geared towards Kindergarten
Mrs Candace Hoggard (1 Nov 2016)
I don't know if I would ever go paperless. Technology is great, but always need a plan B.
Melanie Lewis (1 Nov 2016)
This wasn't very engaging, but had good information.
Mr Matthew Berndt (26 Oct 2016)
I would have never seen the value of OneNote in the classroom until this webinar.
Mrs Julie Ibarra (25 Oct 2016)
I was fascinated by the ability to go "paperless" in the classroom.
