Some Total Recall applied at my old high school

Teacher Kelvin Dueck is using OneNote and SkyDrive in an innovative way – and  part of his approach relates to our chapter on education. To begin with, he realized the advantage of having copies of all lessons, tests and reviews from previous years:

“It was such a time-saver for me to only [have to] prep lessons. That’s where initially my lights went  on, where I already started to see — just in terms of static content — what I could do to share with students and colleagues.”

Then he realized the value of recording explanations:

“With the screencasts, I learned that if I’m going to explain something to a colleague once, why don’t I just hit Record and then upload it afterwards? A lot of the videos are me, sitting down with one colleague and showing them how to do it, and remembering to hit Record ahead of time.”

All of his classroom lectures are also recorded and shared on SkyDrive.

There is much more to his technique – check out the whole article.
