As a cloud based tool, students and teachers can access Office 365 from any device – creating a dynamic and interactive learning experience and supporting pupils and teachers to create, share and collaborate on tasks and projects.
Over 400 NI schools are already using the O365 toolset to improve collaboration between class groups, pupils and teachers and to shorten the feedback time on submitted work.
In St. Mary’s College, Derry the Senior Leadership team are using OneNote for their meetings – circulating and editing policies online and reducing the number of printed documents. O365 forms are also used to engage with parents, pupils and the wider school community via surveys – gathering and collating responses in one place.
Pupils in St. Mary’s also use O365 across the curriculum, for example developing story boards for a group movie in English, where they discuss and share ideas to work independently on their areas. Another example is students using OneNote to create instruction manuals for a game they have created in Scratch – reducing the need to use local storage, work productively and work between solutions which complement the C2k service.
Primary 7 pupils in St. Connor’s Primary School, Omagh use OneNote to create their work, submitting for review to their class teacher, who responds in a quicker manner than traditional marking methods – shortening the feedback loop and enabling pupils to work more productively.
