The start of school means staying organized. One of our favorite tools to stay on top of our many tasks is Microsoft Office. This includes using tools like OneNote where older students with phones can access them anywhere making it more convenient to take a quick look back. Check out more tips from Microsoft Office on how to stay organized this school year.
Everyone Can be Organized: For a lot of moms, back to school season means more time in the car. Soccer games, ballet classes, and every so often the dreaded group project. It can be hard to make sure that your child is in the same place as all the other group members to complete a project on time in a collaborative way. With Office Online, each person can view the same document and see each other’s real-time edits immediately, all from their own homes. It’s free and available whether or not each person has the full version of Office 365. Add a Skype group chat and it’s almost as good as face to face!
One Note App: The start of a new school year is a natural time work with your student on an organization system that will help them succeed this school year. More and more kids are taking notes on a tablet or computer in class, but they don’t always organize them well in a way that makes it easy to go back and review them before that big exam. OneNote – a free app available on computers, tablets and phones – is like a Trapper Keeper for the digital age. Digital notebooks, complete with color-coded tabs, let your student type notes, insert pictures, recordings of lectures, and even hand-write if they’re on a tablet with a pen.
