Cold Season = Increased Absences

It’s cold season in Massachusetts (I’m even writing this while surrounded by cough drops and tissues).  Cold season means my students miss class more often and come back to school overwhelmed by make-up work.

In our 1:1 environment, I write out my examples in Notability and my students take their notes in Notability too.  When a student is absent, he/she typically asks a classmate to share the notes from class before coming back to school.  While this doesn’t make up for the missed class, when absent students come to see me the next, they have already seen the notes and are prepared to ask questions other than the dreaded “did I miss anything?

Note: Students typically “share” their notes with each other by sending their Notability file via email to another student.
