EdTech: Note taking using digital tools
Digital note-taking tools exist to cover all of the situations when what you need is a platform for informal rough working: planning, preparing and structuring a task; making sketches and diagrams.
They are the digital equivalents of the back of an envelope or a blank sheet of paper, but they won't get lost and you can access them from different devices and shape into more formal or permanent forms to suit your needs.
This module will help you incorporate a range of digital tools for note-taking into your teaching practice.
Adopting digital tools for note-taking
After completing this module you will be able to:
- make informed choices between alternative digital note-taking tools for teaching and learning
- adopt appropriate digital note-taking approaches into your teaching practice
Digital Teaching Professional Framework
This module covers the EdTech component - C1a : Research and employability
- Use digital technologies (e.g. blogs, diaries, planning tools) to allow learners to plan their own learning.
- Use digital technologies to allow learners to collect evidence and record progress, e.g. audio or video recordings, photos.
- Use digital technologies (e.g. ePortfolios, learners' blogs) to allow learners to record and showcase their work.
- Use digital technologies to enable learners to reflect on and self-assess their learning process.

same as hashtag module would have been really useful to have some screen shots with the video to show how the notes pages look in real life.
Not really useful for my students but given me an awareness of digital tools available.
learnt some different tools when note taking
This topic is more useful for teachers.
Big emphasise on Microsoft OneNote! For quick and easy note keeping I like using Google Keep. With Google Keep I can make audio notes, add images , and task lists. Syncs to all my devices and calendars. Great note taking tool
Good links, tips and general ideas--the concept of mapping notes to specs and schemes of work etc could be very powerful.
