New Teams features add creative ways to engage students


Microsoft have once again made huge changes to Teams.
There are so many new features that have been added or enhanced.

There is the Together Mode which adds all the participants in a shared background.
They have introduced Chat bubbles which will float the messages from the bottom 
of the screen for everyone to see and Teams now support 1000 participants in a single chat.

The other thing is that students will only be able to chat when a teacher is

Microsoft Teams Raise your hand

Microsoft Teams Raise your hand

I am absolutely loving the new raise your hand in Microsoft Teams.
Day 1 and I have already found it so useful.


I have more control over the class and I can now unmute the person 
I would like to talk to or I can chat to them in a private message.

Brilliant !!

Microsoft Digital Literacy

Microsoft Digital Literacy

I know that there are so many different courses to help with digital literacy.
So many of them are free, but then you have to pay for the certificate, etc.
Try this one to prove your skills.  This has been updated for Windows 10!



Quick and easy and there is an online test to take.
