Do you scribble great ideas on napkins and sticky notes? 

Or is precise filing more your style?

OneNote's got you covered and it works on any device or platform! Type, write or draw with the free-form-feel of pen to paper. Search and clip from the web to visualize and build your ideas. Create your way!

Directions for the Optional Tasks

Tasks are posted after each class.

Tasks aren't meant to be extremely time-consuming; they are meant to extend the learning experience outside workshop time.

Above, there is a tab for each of the workshops. Add a comment after completing each task given and what you thought about it: Was it difficult? How will you use it?

Make sure to add your name to your comment to get credit!
