Like so many schools, when Covid hit last March, the Devereux Glenholme school started using Zoom for students who were home.
Enter Morgan Fulks, the incoming Director of Education. With the current Education Director, Sharon Murphy, Morgan began investigating more complete options for student learning using computers. On September 23rd, the Glenholme School flipped the switch to start using Microsoft Teams, a program blending of online and in-person teaching. Microsoft Teams allows teachers, students and administrators to collaborate in real time. For example, students can take quizzes in class, and turn them in online. The teacher can then see immediately who turned in the quiz, and who has not. Quizzes are graded automatically and the teachers can add any comments before she sends it back to the students. Curriculums can also be developed online. Teachers can do lessons on camera, record and store them for playback at a later time.
With Microsoft Teams, students have online access to their classes, their teachers and digital resources.
