SharePoint & Teams

Office 365 for education comes with Microsoft Teams and SharePoint, two useful learning tools which will help to foster creativity and develop a collaborative environment in your school.

Microsoft SharePoint for Schools

Ideal for use in schools, SharePoint allows you to connect, collaborate and create with other users and groups in your educational institution. You can set up group workspaces for staff, students and other groups within your school so that they can work together on projects and planning sessions. These workspaces can be very specific, even down to the level of individual classes and subjects.

Users in a particular SharePoint workspace can share files, data, news and resources to help other members in the group enhance their learning and development. You can easily manage and organise information so that it is easily accessible and can be viewed by all users.

Microsoft Teams for Education

Microsoft Teams for education is free for all schools as part of the Office 365 package. It is a digital hub which encourages communication and collaboration among teachers, pupils and other members of staff.

With Microsoft Teams’ end-to-end assignment management, teachers can set assignments electronically and collect pupil submissions. Teachers can mark and return the work back to the student in an easy and efficient way, and pupils can have instant access to all of their feedback. The classroom experience can be customised with different educational apps.
