25 Reasons Why Digital Interactive Notebooks Are Awesome!

Distance learning has become a reality, and teachers and students all over the world are adapting their typical daily practices into something much different. New tools are being discovered and used, innovation is happening, and students and teachers are both gaining new skills. With that, platforms like Google Classroom are becoming a necessity, and students and teachers are relying on digital tools to engage in learning. One popular tool teachers are reaching for and students are loving, are Digital Interactive Notebooks.

Digital Interactive Notebooks utilize a slide format, such as Google Slides, creating an online digital notebook students can navigate and engage with. The content is splashed throughout the pages, and typically there are parts of the notebook where students might be doing things like, dragging & dropping labels, creating diagrams with provided pics or shapes, typing in text boxes, or creating their own content. Digital Interactive Notebooks are one of my favorite things to make!
