Professional learning community groups in Office 3...

A professional learning community, or PLC, is a group of educators who meet regularly to share expertise and work collaboratively to improve teaching skills and the academic performance of students. Teachers around the world have started using Office 365 Groups to make collaboration within a PLC a lot simpler and more streamlined. PLC groups are typically formed around interest areas (e.g., 9th grade math), grade levels (e.g., 10th grade teachers) or across subjects (e.g., science teachers).
Here are some barriers to engagement with PLCs today that Office 365 Groups is addressing:

  • Teachers can be isolated, time is severely limited and collaboration is difficult.
  • Professional collaboration tools are disconnected and don’t always support meaningful, sustained collaboration.
  • A challenge for many PLCs is extending the work and relationships in the times and spaces between physically coming together.
  • It can be difficult for new teachers to... | Read more »

Educators, increase collaboration and professional...

As part of Microsoft’s Education announcement in April, we announced new experiences and updates to Office 365 Education coming this summer that will make it easier for teachers to manage their classroom and collaborate with peers, and for them or their IT administrators to set it all up. As part of this announcement, we mentioned there’d be even more updates coming this summer! We’re thrilled to share these with you today—all are teacher inspired and student focused.
Today, we are announcing enhanced educator collaboration with PLC groups, better content sharing with Docs.com, easier formative assessments with Microsoft Forms and additional Learning Management System (LMS) and Student Information System (SIS) partners with OneNote Class Notebook.
All educators have access to these new updates through Office 365 Education, which is totally free for teachers and students when you go to ... | Read more »

Microsoft Forms—a new formative assessment and sur...

Today, we are pleased to announce the availability of Microsoft Forms for our Office 365 Education customers. Forms is the result of direct feedback from educators that they want to have a quizzing function with Office 365 Education. Educators told us they need an easy way to assess student progress on an ongoing basis. They also told us they want an assessment solution that will save them time, help differentiate instruction for all students and provide quiz takers with real-time personalized feedback.

We designed Forms to be super easy so that anyone could confidently create a form and easily see results as they come in. Forms lets anyone with an Office 365 Education account create and/or respond to quizzes. What makes Forms unique and so valuable for educators is the automatic grading and in-quiz feedback functionality. Automatic grading does exactly what the name implies and greatly reduces the time spent grading. In-quiz feedback is a feature that lets quiz authors... | Read more »

The 6 not-so-obvious reasons a project plan fails

Bad projects are expensive. In fact, organizations lose a whopping $109 million for every $1 billion invested in projects and programs, according to a Project Management Institute (PMI) study. And the bigger the projects are, the harder they fall. Large projects are 10 times more likely to fail outright, according to another industry report, and two times more likely to be late, over budget and missing critical features when compared with smaller projects. While small and medium projects may not be quite as fraught with peril, anyone who’s worked on them knows they certainly aren’t without their woes.
So, what are the culprits behind these epic and not-so-epic fails? According to PMI, common causes of project failure range from changing priorities within an organization (40 percent) to limited resources (20... | Read more »

How OneNote Class Notebook supports digital modeli...

Today’s post was written by Nikkie Laing, associate principal at the Opaheke School in New Zealand.
Digital modeling books are a way of recording and sharing our everyday and ongoing learning. They are featured in many New Zealand primary school classrooms. These collaborative resources are used to record our ideas and our collective thinking. They help make learning more visible and illustrate what success will look like. With modeling books firmly embedded in our pedagogical practice, OneNote Class Notebooks gave us the opportunity to create even more efficient and effective digital modeling books.
Traditional modeling books
Modeling books are a shared resource where students and teachers construct learning together. They are an important record of the work that gets done in classrooms. Traditionally, modeling books are kept in scrapbook form and stored in boxes for students and... | Read more »

Telefónica believes that by encouraging an online employee community based on respectful, enlightened conversations and problem solving, a concept it calls “intelligent altruism,” Telefónica will evolve from a hierarchical organization to a global community of engaged employees.
“The world has changed exponentially, and the way we communicate, work and socialize has, too,” says Aitor Goyenechea, director of Global Internal Communications at Telefónica. “Before, large companies like ours tended to be siloed, geographically dispersed organizations where real-time connections and conversations didn’t really happen all that much. Today, we are aware that digital life and technology is an essential part of human experience,” says Goyenechea.
