Lesson Study Alliance developed LessonNote, and the companion web application LessonNote Pro, to support effective Lesson Study.

LessonNote, a free app available at the iTunes store, helps the observer collect detailed qualitative and quantitative data during a lesson.

See the user guide for version 4.

The heart of LessonNote is a customizable seating chart populated with icons representing students, teachers, groups, and displays (such as a blackboard). Tapping on an icon, or dragging from one icon to another, opens a note-taking area at the bottom.

You can easily create and modify new seating charts as needed, and create templates for classrooms you visit frequently.
