Since last spring, several teachers have been using Microsoft Teams as a new tool to communicate and collaborate with their students. Many of them share tips and advice on the Web, in particular through the Facebook group “ICTs in education”. So that more teachers can benefit from these shares, here are a few that caught my attention.

Sharing ideas

Using the notepads

Teacher Nathalie Charest regularly publishes capsules about Teams. She recently became interested in using the notepad to share content with students and to submit a photo as homework.

“I use it exactly as I used the Activinspire software on my interactive digital whiteboard. Using it with the OneNote app on my iPad with a stylus, students see my class notes live. Very practical for the many students who are frequently absent due to COVID-19, as they can follow the new concepts at home. What I appreciate the most is that it does not require any manipulation after class (no need to record and deposit the notes in each Teams team) ”. 

5 ways to give homework

The Kréa City team presents a video giving 5 types of homework that it is possible to give to students in Teams, from simply sending an email to uploading a video. It is also possible to display a questionnaire at specific times. The team also offers a mega tutorial.

Several teachers pointed out in the Facebook group that Teams can be used well in a hybrid teaching context, since students can follow in class and absent, who are at home, can follow at the same time.

Tutorials available

For those who prefer step-by-step manuals to videos, Remote teacher ... by Miss Sonia offers tutorials in PDF form, with lots of screenshots, arrows, and annotations. It explains in particular how to record a meeting and also prepared a specific user guide for parents

Carrefour education finally offers a List of Teams video tutorials.

It is also absolutely necessary to discover this Sébastien Bergeron “playlist” on YouTube, which is full of introductory clips popular with teachers everywhere.

By École branchée: For other resources and essentials of this platform, go to CréaCamp from October 23 in the morning (3 hours for intermediate and advanced levels), or on October 26 in a one-hour Discovery formula: Create an active learning path through the Teams Class Notebook.

Sébastien Place online conferences : Specialist in educational solutions at Microsoft Belgium, he regularly hosts online conferences these days on various aspects of Teams, to which you are invited to participate if the schedule suits you.

Finally, you will like to join the Facebook group " Technological trainings with Alex and Melissa From Microsoft Canada.
