Office 365 in the Classroom
The purpose of using Office 365 is to provide collaboration between Teacher and Student as well as Student to Student. Students have the capability to stay up to date even if they have missed a day at school.
This new tool gives Students the ability to work on group assignments/projects simultaneously or independently from wherever they may be as long as they have an Internet connection and a computer. There is no need for the group to physically be in the same room.
Simply by launching a browser and typing dpcloud.dpcdsb.org in the address bar, they can access a Teacher’s Classroom Site.
