LessonNote is the best tool for documenting the flow of a lesson and its impact on students. LessonNote lets you track who is talking to whom, when, and for how long, and lets you jot handwritten notes about what is being said and what students are doing. LessonNote can also record photos of student work. (iPad 1 users can import photos afterwards.)
Create a seating chart, which may include a teacher, students, groups, and display areas (such as chalkboards). Record observations by tapping on an entity, or drag from one entity to another to record an interaction. Take photos or insert existing photos into your notes. Use a "seating chart note" to quickly make notes about multiple students.
When you review your notes, a seating chart thumbnail highlights whom a note was about, while a timeline provides a birds-eye view of the lesson, showing when events occurred and how long they lasted.
LessonNote helps users record factual, non-judgemental observations of individual events and behavior. Designed for Lesson Study, it is ideal for peer observations and for coaching situations. For administrators needing to evaluate teachers, 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!
