SalamanderSoft has a long history of integrating key IT systems with school data in highly flexible ways, and we are continuing this approach within Office 365, allowing the automation of these new features in Office 365. Their aim is that everyone can access the resources they need as soon as they need to start learning or teaching, whether that’s Microsoft Outlook, OneNote Class Notebooks, Microsoft Classroom, Microsoft SharePoint, or simply logging on to their devices.
Technology is evolving at a rapid place and with this brings new and exciting opportunities to not only modify methods of teaching but also to redefine them and deliver learning in new ways. One area of significant growth is the use of cloud technologies and in particular the implementation of Office 365 within education.

How is there any argument to not undertake some initial programmes, and to understand how online teaching can effect change, and transform pupil outcomes.
