Next month (October 24th 2018) I’ve been invited to speak at a new conference focusing on Microsoft 365 and education!
365edu is a conference for teachers by teachers and education experts, and their ambition is to improve teaching and learning through the effective use of technology.
Sound awesome! I’ve been focusing a lot towards the education sector lately, both in terms of enterprise mobility, to ease the pain of managing student devices, apps and more, as well as on modern classroom experiences with Microsoft Teams integrated with 3rd party learning tools.
I’ll be in the Transformation Stream hosting two sessions:
#1 Move your education envrionment to the cloud with Microsoft 365
Microsoft Teams has quickly become the coolest kid in class, serving as a digital hub for teachers and students everywhere.
Together with the rest of Office 365, on Windows 10 Education devices managed by Intune, you get a complete cloud environment in an affordable bundle.
During this presentation you will see how you can support student devices from cradle to the grave with Autopilot and Intune, and get a demo of automatic creation of class teams, complete with teacher and students using School Data Sync. You will also learn how you can utilize student data, like grade and graduation year, to automate anything from deployment of applications to automatic redeployment of Windows 10 devices end of year.
#2 Teams and Transformation of the organization
How Horten municipality developed a platform for collaboration & learning with Microsoft Teams and 3rd party learning tools!
Todays classroom isn’t limited to the time teachers and students spend together in the classroom. In todays tech-ready classroom, schools can get a digital classroom, a hub for collaboration and learning, through combining Microsoft Teams with integrated learning tools available from 3rd parties.
I’ll will briefly touch on what Microsoft Teams is, then walk you through our journey migrating from documents in local file shares, a legacy learning management system, and show you how we use Microsoft Teams and integrated 3rd party learning tools for sharing, collaborating and learning, while at the same time including parents with weekly plans, absence, assessments, messages and much more!
