Description

Use LessonNote to document the flow of a lesson and its impact on students with both quantitative and qualitative data. Track who is talking to whom, when, and for how long; jot handwritten notes about what is being said and what students are doing; and take photos of student work.

Begin by creating a seating chart with icons for teachers, students, groups, and display areas (such as chalkboards). Record observations by tapping on an icon, or drag from one icon to another to record an interaction. Take photos or insert library images into your notes. Use a "seating chart note" to quickly make notes about multiple students.

Review your notes in either single-column or a more compact three-column view. In single-column view, a seating chart thumbnail highlights whom a note is about; charts shows various statistics; and a timeline provides a birds-eye view of the lesson, showing how time was spent between whole-class instruction, independent work, and group work.

LessonNote helps users record factual, non-judgemental observations. Designed for intensive demands of Lesson Study, it is ideal for peer observation and coaching. For administrators, it improves on simple checklists by helping document how lessons affect students—which is, ultimately, what teaching is all about.

Work with colleagues and use LessonNote to improve teaching and learning!

Customer Reviews

Great app! Appreciate continued improvement

Fangeroo

There isn’t any app out there like this one. I love the seating chart as the basis for entering data, and I love being able to take pictures of what students are doing; it makes a post-lesson discussion much more grounded in what the students were doing and learning. Thank you for making this available for free!

I appreciate the continued improvements. Handwriting is noticeably better. Haven’t seen any of the small bugs that I used to. LessonNote Pro is super-useful for sharing my notes with the teacher in PDF format. It also gives some very interesting statistics not available on the app.

Mr. Bierbaum

I love this app and I use it to help my student teachers on a daily basis. I would highly recommend this app for any teacher with a student teacher to take notes in a proficient manner. I would make 2 recommendations for it, though. First, when taking notes, have the option of typing the notes as well as writing by hand. Secondly, have an option to import items of different importance and export the notes through lesson note to Dropbox, or pages, etc. Otherwise this is an awesome app.

A tremendous help in the classroom

This tool is invaluable for doing lesson study. It makes it very easy to record what is happening in the classroom. It's fast, too, so I can easily keep up with the classroom activity. And it's really nice to be able to take photos, especially of the work that the students are doing.

My only quibble is that the "Getting Started" screen comes up all the time. But that's really just a minor annoyance - aside from that it's highly recommended,
