These students had all had dot point named notes and resources



  • Short video tutorials online

  • Used for foundation skills eg molar calculations, balancing equations or unfamiliar practicalseg ticker timers

  • Ability to allocate a password so only certain groups of students can access

Interactive PDFs


Easy to convert existing resources

Can automatically generate fields to enter responses

Can add extra text boxes/edit content

Good for:


Cloze passages

Simple question answer

Longer response

Completing tables of results


Issues with saving/crashing

Font sizes and scrolling from automatic form fields

Not always good for

scientific drawings

Emma hughes

Interactive fields to fill – allows for mistakes and retrial

Emma hughes

Simple labeling of diagrams

Emma hughes



Saves on marking

Quizzes can be edited/reused Classes can be graded and data analysed to inform teaching

Option to teacher mark sections and give feedback

Good for:

Keywords/short answer

Cloze passages

Multiple choice



Can be time consuming to create

Uploading images clunky

Pure text, no symbols

Immediate feedback not always useful

Not great for

longer response

  • Digital notes can be added to, consolidated and amended

  • Sustainable (huge photocopying reduction)

Digital learning things to consider

Digital learningThings to consider

  • Encourage HAND WRITTEN study notes

  • HSC style/examination questions handwritten and practised regularly

  • Certain areas eg chemical structures/scientific drawings still need to be paper based

  • Balance between digital and written
