If you didn't know already we love Office 365 and as we move forwards we'll be making more and more use of the tools that it offers. If you didn't already know, all our students have an Office 365 account. To log in, simply visit:
and sign in with your school email address and your normal school password. For example, if my user name was "davo345" then my school email would be "email@example.com"
Office 365 offers you:
We will be making use of something called "Forms." With the exception of exam based assessments, all our tests will now be conducted online, through a web browser. At the start of the lesson, just check your email and I'll have sent you a link to the latest quick test.
Once complete, we will be able to see how the class handled the test, any areas of weakness we have and you will receive personal feedback by the next day via email once again. Some questions may mark themselves automatically and for those questions you will receive feedback immediately after clicking the submit button.
By using this system we can regularly do a quick check of your knowledge, provide you with valuable feedback and keep a much better track of your progress throughout the GCSE course. I hope you appreciate the new tools we're using and get used to them quickly - go check them out!.
