Keeping all your ideas in one place just got that much easier, and your notebook is about to overflow with creativity. As we’re sure you already know, OneNote is Microsoft’s leading platform for note taking, thanks in part to its power as a collaborative and cloud-based tool. This means that, like Genially, OneNote is an ideal space for teamwork and a time-saving solution that allows you to take full advantage of a group’s combined brain power.
To bring your geniallys into OneNote, copy and paste your genially’s link anywhere in your notebook, hit Enter and–once the creation loads– delete the title text above the creation if you’d like. Your genially will continue to appear in all of its glory, complete with its interactive and animated effects.
The integration made a seamless experience possible, where your genially creations can be embedded directly in the OneNote platform, by simply pasting their link into any section of your notebook and hitting Enter.
It’s that easy!
Pro Tip: choose the option Navigation Panes > Hide All in OneNotes’ View tab for optimal viewing of your genially. ?
New level of engagement with digital breakouts
Genially is used to create learning resources. Anything from interactive images and infographics to video presentations and escape rooms. The sky is the limit, and there are hundreds of templates to get you started.
Digital breakouts are making waves in education, and OneNote can help you easily organize and share them with your class.
Here’s an example from Odalys Pacheco, MIE Certified Trainer and Educator in Jacksonville, North Carolina. She used Genially to create a digital breakout for her grammar lesson and embedded it into OneNote to share with her class. Beautiful!
Enhance your lesson experience with interactive images
Take your students on a trip to a faraway land with Genially and OneNote! Teach them about the animals and people who live there. Include interactive images created with Genially and filled with videos, sounds and visual information!
In the example below, Aili takes her classroom on an adventure into the rainforest. Her students are able to take notes as she goes by using the ink or type mode offered by OneNote. She’s able to keep her lessons organized.
Create your digital portfolio
Let’s move now to higher education and instructional design. April Joy Macadangdang-Perez, Senior Instructional Designer at the University of Miami combines OneNote and Genially to create stunning digital portfolios. In her own words:
“Genially is seamlessly “transportable”. It’s an intelligent tool that can render its interactions in almost any digital spaces you can think of – Learning Management Systems, authoring tools, cloud-based presentation tools, Twitter and now OneNote. When two different tools integrate without a glitch, it helps instructional designers create an interactive and meaningful content. In this example, Genially and OneNote is used as a tutorial tool in creating a digital portfolio”.
Motivate your classroom and keep track of your interactive reading list
Creating to-do lists with OneNote is simple and you can use it to share your reading list for the year and keep track of progress. Librarians get very creative with Genially, and we are seeing tons of great examples like the one below, where they offer an interactive overview of upcoming books to get their students excited!
Include your Genially at the top of your notebook entry, followed by the reading list as an index to help you keep things tidy 🙂 Remember you can also take notes with OneNote, and additional notebooks or sections can be added as needed for each book. Make them colorful and add more geniallys along the way!
