With the advent of the 1:1, at least a couple of my students have been taking advantage of Word’s Notebook view. It’s a nice looking format with some features that seem to make it very useful. I’ve not used it myself, but from what I’ve seen my students do you can collapse and expand bullets (to save space by seeing less or see more), create diagrams / shapes, and demarcate sections (similar, it seems, to sections in Excel). I’ve included an image here of both the blank page and a page that one of my students used to outline her paper (reproduced here with her permission; thanks, SB-S).
