Microsoft Teams is just one of the many online teaching platforms available to help remote learning a whole lot easier.
Not only can teachers use it to recreate the traditional classroom setup with the use of live video lessons, but they can also use it to store documents, share resources, streamline their teaching workflow and be ore interactive with their students.
MICROSOFT TEAMS TEACHING BENEFITS
1. Record Classes To Be Watched Again Later
One major feature of Teams is the ability to record classes during live video meetings and share them around later. This is hugely important as it allows students who may have been absent to catch up, or for present students to go back to particular aspects of the lesson they may wish to review and revise.
2. Take Advantage Of Microsoft Whiteboard
Microsoft Whiteboard is a freeform digital canvas that easily replicates the blackboard or whiteboard you would use in the classroom. Keep it free-style or transform work into professional looking charts and shapes. Whiteboard works with pen, touch and keyboard.
Teachers can use it to teach concepts like they usually would, or to allow students to collaborate and share ideas. This is a good way to keep students interested and involved in class work.
3. Take Advantage Of App Integrations
Microsoft Teams integrates seamlessly with other apps allowing teachers to make Class diverse and fun. This is where a large portion of Teams’ creativity comes from, as it really opens up doors in terms of delivering content to students, structuring lessons and setting tasks.
Here are two apps we believe are the most popular within the Teams’ environment.
Adding a live game of Kahoot! to your Class is a great way to help students feel more connected and build a strong team spirit.
It’s interactive and invites the fun into learning.
Quizlet is a popular revision tool for students, with millions of study sets already created by teachers and students covering thousands of popular topics. All of the Quizlet activities, such as Flashcards, Learn, Write, Spell and the Match and Gravity games will run from inside Teams.
