Description

This course allows teachers to discover the enormous power of the Microsoft 365 platform, revealing tools and techniques, which they can incorporate into their teaching.

The course will cover all the most relevant programs of the Microsoft family: Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Sway, Stream, One Note, Teams, One Drive and Share Point.

Although applications such as Word and PowerPoint are already widely used, participants will learn how to harness the more advanced techniques of classic tools. Excel is often vastly underestimated, so teachers will discover how to analyze data in a faster and more effective way, learning how to filter and format spreadsheets, and automate functions with the use of macros.

Sway is a relatively unknown program, and this course will demonstrate how to create impressive interactive presentations for use in the classroom, with a focus on the simple process of sharing them with students and colleagues. In addition to these presentations, Stream allows teachers to create a dynamic video database as a platform to share video lessons and content with students in a more controlled manner.

One Note is an extremely useful tool that allows participants to deliver lessons to their classes in a more interactive way, creating stimulating and interesting content for your students. Teachers will also become familiar with Teams, an application that connects students and colleagues in group conferences, enabling clear and effective communication between separate groups.

The course will also show participants how to use One Drive as a powerful cloud storage space, allowing teachers to access their content everywhere. Finally, it will be revealed how to use SharePoint to create websites for use as a sharing platform for all educational content.

Reviews about this course

Europass was very well organized. There was a wide range of support from finding accommodation, organizing the cultural program in your free time to helping out with cables and hardware for students with very outdated hardware. The course itself was varied and demanding in terms of content and met expectations to a large extent. The instructor was very competent and helpful.

Daniel Pache

This course was a great opportunity for me and my colleagues to learn how to use the tools of Microsoft 365 platform in our daily teaching activities. (…) The trainer was great and the atmosphere was fantastic! It was a great experience!
