Interactive Classroom

Interactive Classroom

This add-in connects a teacher’s PowerPoint presentation to students’ OneNote notebooks. During a presentation, teachers can:

  • Poll students with multiple choice, true/false, or yes/no questions.
  • Distribute the lesson to students with OneNote
  • Include real-time ink and text annotations.

Students can answer and respond through their individual OneNote notebooks, hand-held clickers, or computers, and the results display in the presentation. Students also get consolidated notes that match those of the teacher so they can keep track of what they need to learn.
