Has Teams saved the day?
Possibly! Since the beginning of lockdown, we’ve seen a significant number of schools making full use of their existing Office 365 licenses by activating MS Teams as an online learning environment.
For those of you who haven’t got going with Teams yet, in this article we are going to explore and answer some of the most common questions schools have prior to activating and using Teams:
As part of its initiative to reduce burdens on education and care settings so they are able to focus on the impact of coronavirus (COVID-19), the DfE has announced the cancellation of School Census Summer 2020.
Schools ICT has developed a solution to help you stay connected during the school closure period. Microsoft has a tool called Teams which can be used for collating learning resources and directing learners. Teams also include collaboration tools such as chat and video calling which can be switched on in preparation for co-operative learning experiences from remote locations.
A full school set-up is a long-term project, but Schools ICT has developed a lighter version that can be quickly deployed to get you up and running. We are calling this Rapid Teams.
Manage all your schools iPads and mobile devices from one place with Schools ICT’s Mobile Device Management Service
The benefit of using a mobile device management solution means that you are in complete control of what resources a student can see and access. Screens can be fully customised to support different learners and display the apps, files and resources you want the student to use and even place them on screen in a position you choose. The settings can be loaded to all devices in one go – no more having to update each individual device or wait for your school technician’s visit before new versions are installed.
