Our school improvement team is considering incorporating Marzano's strategies as part of our improvement effort. As a one-to-one middle school, we are particularly interested in ways to incorporate technology into the note taking and summarizing strategy. What tools are you using for note taking and/or summarizing that are effective in your classroom? We're always looking for something different to try.

Thanks for the Inspiration suggestion, which we do have on all our computers. It really is a pretty powerful application. One-to-one refers to our laptop computer program. All our 7th and 8th graders have their own laptops this year, and next year we will extend that to the 6th grade.
I teach pre-algebra and I use schoolpads linked to my laptop so students can see how other students solve problems/take notes. The screen capture software that comes with the pads allows me to turn that into a video that I can post on our wiki. When I'd like to capture more of their thinking then I link the student with a microphone and I have a tutorial.

Another option I've used is a digipad. It's less techie, but essentially a pen capture tool. Students write their notes on a special clip board (on paper) and the pad picks up the pen movement and turns it into a static image of the final version of the notes. Again, the software converts the notes to a PDF and I can link that to a wiki.
