A common question I get asked by teachers who are starting to delve into the limitless potential of OneNote is, 'How can I make my OneNote pages look pretty?!'
Let's start with a few inbuilt features that can help style your OneNote pages for fun and engaging lessons:
Page Colour - under the 'View' tab, select page colour and choose a colour to bring your page alive. In addition to the colours, you can also choose lined or grid paper to use.
Stickers - under the 'Insert' tab you can select different stickers to add to the page. The stickers that have a pencil icon in the corner are editable. One way to make instructions look interesting, is to add them as text into the sticker.
Images - Another way to make the pages more vibrant is to 'Insert' Pictures from online or your desktop. A good tip to stop images moving around when on the OneNote page is to right-click on the image and select 'Set picture as background'.
Bitmoji - Everyone loves a Bitmoji! A great way to personalise your OneNote pages and make your lessons come alive is to use your Bitmoji as a sticker in OneNote. An easy way to do this is to install the Bitmoji extension on your Chrome Browser and sign in with your Bitmoji account. Once the extension is installed, you will be able to search for Bitmoji and copy and paste the images onto your OneNote page. If you are printing PowerPoints or PDFs to the OneNote page, a good tip is to set the PowerPoint/PDF as a background by right-clicking on the document and choosing 'Set image as background'. You can then place you Bitmoji image on top of the document.
Enjoy making your pages look pretty!
