Digital technologies now influence many aspects of teaching, learning and assessment, and it is safe to say that the world of education has definitely shifted. Learning how to utilise and engage with a range of technologies, apps and resources has been a learning curve for many educators, and this interactive online session on the use of Microsoft Teams and Class Notebook will offer supportive advice and guidance on how these tools can make online delivery and assessment more straightforward and efficient.
Mark Towers and Lewis Kissoon will share their use of Microsoft’s Office 365 applications and how they have utilised these resources to support online teaching and learning. Mark is a lecturer in Music Technology and Lewis a lecturer in Motor Vehicle at Leicester College, and both are also Digital Curriculum Development Coaches within the college's Quality Improvement department. As part of their digital coaching role, Mark and Lewis work across the college with all curriculum areas to support and develop their use of digital technologies in teaching and learning.
There will be a particular focus on Class Notebook which has so many positive elements including; a resource library, a collaborative space for whole group and small group work, a ‘notebook’ where learners can save and update their own materials, plus a place for individual interaction between teacher and learner, the opportunities of the app are vast. Mark and Lewis will share how they have been utilising the resource with their own learners, and how they are encouraging and sharing the benefits of the app with their colleagues.
So come and join us for this interesting and informative event facilitated by Karen Plowman, Head of Professional Development, which will encourage participants to ask questions and offer a platform for discussion around some of the challenges, barriers and opportunities that are being experienced when delivering and assessing online.
