Teachers at Frankston High wanted to make course curricula more accessible, dynamic and useful. They wanted students to collaborate more intensively when working from home, and have the ability to observe progress on students’ work, so they could informally
coach and steer them in the right direction.
Using SharePoint Online in Microsoft Office 365, Director of Technical Services, Daniel Anderson gave teachers the ability to quickly create their own branded class and project collaboration sites. Teachers build curriculum material into master notebooks using
Microsoft OneNote and store them on dedicated class and project sites. Students download the notebooks, work directly into their own versions, and save them in the cloud with SkyDrive Pro.
Students now enjoy greater flexibility, real-time collaboration and active discussion, as well as targeted and timely coaching from teachers.
