September. The month of seasonal change, knowledge thirsty children and endless back to school meetings. Your to-do list is longer than you hoped and deadlines are looming. As educators, we often struggle with managing multiple content and keeping ourselves organised throughout the academic year. Educators need a way to easily share files, schedule meetings, join video calls and access their Class OneNote Notebook easily from one location. Microsoft have made this possible with a brand new application. Introducing Microsoft Teams.
Microsoft Teams is a digital hub that brings conversations, content, and apps together in one place. Educators can create collaborative classrooms, connect in professional learning communities, and communicate with school staff all from a single experience in Office 365 for Education. Even better, Teams uses threaded conversations in order to avoid the confusion of searching through too many messages on your screen.
Top 3 Tips to get you started with Microsoft Teams:
Establish the ground rules: Explain the purpose of your Team and the content you want shared in the activity. Teachers can be mischievous, so keep everything professional
Plan ahead but not beyond: Be sure to plan ahead and think about what channels your team want to be a part of. You want your channel subscriptions to assist and not overload your team
Bridge the gap: For a fully immersive experience, create a link to your Team from SharePoint.
