Microsoft in the Classroom

Lesson presentation, creation and storage

Flipping your classroom

What:

Upload your lesson to the Microsoft Cloud and share a link with your students to participate online - or embed your mixes on your class site or blog. You can see analytics for every slide and every student revealing exactly how they're going.

Why:

  • Office Mix lets teachers enhance PowerPoint presentations with audio, video and handwriting, quizzes, online videos, web pages and content from sites such as Khan Academy.
  • This creates rich learning resources that students can study online and then spend face-to-face class time discussing, experimenting and asking for extra explanations.

How:

  • Install Office Mix add-in for PowerPoint from the website.

Creating collaborative online spaces

What:

Share lesson plans, readings or presentations with your students using collaborative online sites. You can continually edit and update your files and access them wherever you are via a browser. You can also enable students to rate resources add comments, if you like.

Video: Use site folders in OneDrive to easily organise courses and communicate with students

Why:

  • Because everything is hosted online, you can edit the document at the last minute and still make sure your students still get the latest version of it. You do not need to worry about what classroom you are in or if you have your memory stick - all your resources are up-to-date and available via any web browser.
  • You might want students to comment on your resources - or perhaps rate the ones that they found most useful - this is easy to do via SharePoint document libraries...and even better, it keeps each version of your work for you, so that next year you can easily go back and see your previous versions, as well as the one you finally used.

How:

  • Login to the VICDET Office 365 Cloud.
  • Use the Sites to create and add staff from your school.

Storing and sharing your teaching resources

OneDrive gives you up to 1TB free cloud storage where you can share resources and presentations with your students. They're accessible on any internet-connected device - PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone or Android tablet/phone.

Why:

  • Because everything is hosted in the cloud, you can edit the documents during the school year to keep them up-to-date and easily accessible.
  • You can easily share a file or a whole folder with groups of students or individuals - and choose whether they can view or edit the files.
  • You can manage your OneDrive via a browser or use an app on your computer, tablet or phone.

How:

  • Explore the guides for using Ofiice 365 for Education.

Create student portfolios

What:

It's easy to set up OneNote workbooks where students can store and organise portfolios of their work and teachers can access and review them online. Notes, reflections, video, audio and photos can easily be added from connected computers, tablets and smartphones.

Why:

  • Offline students and teachers can add video or audio messages as well as make handwritten notes on a pen-enabled device.
  • Developing and maintaining a portfolio will help students acquire self-regulation skills, enable them to become autonomous learners and equip them with skills to reflect upon their learning practices and achievements.

How:

  • Create and share a OneNote notebook with students.
