It allows you to access an interactive online classroom environment that brings together schoolroom learning, conversations, assignments, and quizzes, documents, storage, and more. Since teams for education is built on Microsoft 365, students and teachers benefit from its application integration. Bringing all your favorite Microsoft applications together in one centralized location. Teams is a communication center for teachers and students, allowing you to share ideas and documents and work together to accomplish more. Teams allows you to converse with teachers and other students within one application. Teams empowers you to work together with others on projects through group instant message chats and private student workspaces. As a student, you can share important content, files and websites easily within teams. You can also create and manage your assignments within teams, as well as submit the assignment for grading. You can track your completed assignments and grades as well. You can work together with other students on project documents by storing the items in teams. Items stored and shared within teams can be accessed, updated, and maintained by any member of the group chat or workspace because of collaboration features available within the application. Since teams as cloud-based, you can join your lesson globally. You can collaborate with others in real time and access your classroom files and assignments remotely or on the go. You remain connected to the information you need when you need it. Now that you have a better understanding of what teams for education is, you can move ahead to the next video in this series. 3. Tour and Navigation: Welcome to the tour of Microsoft Teams for education. When you've launched Microsoft Teams, you'll be asked to sign in with your school credentials. You may be required to verify your identity using multi-factor authentication if it's been enabled in your school environment. Let's start by exploring the navigation bar, which is located at the top of the application. Here we have navigational arrows that allow you to move forward or back through the screens you have visited in teams. I like to think about my actions in teams as if I'm leaving a breadcrumb trail. As you chat, complete work, and join virtual classrooms, you're dropping breadcrumbs and the navigational arrows allow you to move forward or back on that trail. In the center, we have the search and command bar. To activate the search feature of this section, enter some keywords and teams will generate a list of content results based on your inputs. Teams will search your private chat messages, your contacts, and all the documents from throughout teams. When searching your documents, teams will use the document title, the body and content of the document, and will also search for any keywords which may be attached to the images within the document to generate your results. You can refine your search by using the second tier of filters here to help you get more granular search results. To activate the command features, place a forward slash in the field to get a list of the most used commands. You can also place an at symbol and type a teacher or another student's name to send a chat message from the command bar. Next we have the Profile icon, which allows you to access and manage your team settings, notifications, access saved content, and update your presence or status. To explore more of our favourite commands and shortcuts, or to learn all about the Profile icon and its features, please access our original teams training video series. Through this center of your screen, you have your content window. This is where information is displayed based on the view you are in or the work you are completing. Essentially, this is where communication happens and where we get our work done. Down the left-hand side you have your navigation pane, which lines up all of the teams applications you need to manage and deliver your schoolwork. The activity view will show you all interactions throughout teams. Your feed will populate with notifications when others are interacting with you and teams. The chat view allows you to have private one-on-one or group conversations in the form of instant messaging. All communication held in this view are private. You can also access conversations from your virtual classroom or meeting space. The teams view houses all of the teams workspaces you're a part of, will learn more about the workspaces in an upcoming video in this series. The assignments view is only available in teams for education. It allows you to access, review, and submit your assignments to your teacher. We will focus on the assignment view in an upcoming video in this series. The calendar view allows you to join and participate in classes or meetings within the teams environment. We're going to look at this view in more detail as well. The calls view will allow you to access your contacts and place teams, phone calls to teachers or to other students you may be working with on group assignments. The files view allows you to access all your Microsoft 365 documents and your OneDrive personal cloud storage. You can complete your private school work items while staying connected to others and Microsoft Teams for education. The ellipsis view will allow you to access other Microsoft applications or third party applications if your school permits it. From here, you can customize your navigation pane by adding additional applications. Please access our original teams training video series to learn more about customizing your navigation pane with the applications that are most important to you. Now that you've completed a tour of Microsoft Teams for education, you can continue on to the next video in this series. 4. The Class Workspace Layout: The classroom layout is created by your teacher and the channels and tabs can be laid out and utilized in many different ways. Regardless of how your teacher has created the classroom, there are some channels in tabs that will remain consistent for all class workspaces. The general channel is created automatically and will house some very important tabs, which will help you throughout the school day. In most classrooms spaces, the general channel is where class announcements that pertain to the overall course will be placed. The tabs of the general channel include the post tab. This is where you can view the post and reply to public conversation topics between teachers and students in the class. There is a post tab available in every channel of the workspace for public conversation. The post tab of the general channels. Specifically, we'll keep a running log of all activities within the teams workspace, such as when students are added or removed, when channels are added and removed and other administrative additions or changes to the workspace. It is also the default location for where assignments are posted, if not updated by the teacher. For more information on how to create a post or announcement, please review the original teams video series. The files tab allows you to access the class materials folder, which is a very special folder your teacher can upload content into for you and your classmates to access. We will explore this folder in more detail in the next video in this section. The files tab also allows you to upload documents and content that you want to share or collaborate on with others in your class. It's important to remember that items uploaded here will be accessible by all members of the classroom workspace and are intended for collaboration and sharing. They are not privately shared when you upload them to the Files tab. For more information on uploading content into the files tab, please review the original teams video series. The Class Notebook tab allows you to access an infinite electronic notebook that has some default sections for you to work within. It allows you to access important handouts and information provided by your teacher, as well as organize your own class notes, assignment work, and other classroom content that you would like to manage. We're going to deep dive into the Class Notebook in section three of this video series. The Assignments tab is a unique space that allows you to access the assignments that have been distributed to you by your teacher. You can review instruction along with a rubric if the teachers included one. From here, you can also create and submit assignments for your teachers review. We will explore the assignments application in more detail in section four of this video series. The Grades tab allows you to review all the grades you've earned from previous assignments and quizzes that were submitted and returned via Microsoft Teams for education. It's important to familiarize yourself with each individual classroom workspace that you're a part of. And to review the guidelines your teacher has set, which will determine how they expect you to utilize the space. Now that you understand the class layout and the default items within the classroom workspace. You can move ahead to the next video in this series. 5. The Class Materials Folder: The class materials folder is a resource folder filled with important documents and information provided by your teacher. Items in the class materials folder can be reviewed but not altered or edited in any way. To access the class materials folder, you'll navigate to the general channel and choose the files tab in any class workspace that you're a part of. This is the class materials folder, and you can select it to access its contents. This symbol indicates that it's a read-only document. If you need to update the document, you can download or save a copy of your own. When you click the item, it will allow you to review the document within the teams application. Select the ellipsis to access additional document options. Choose Download to create a copy on your computer's hard drive. Access the item by navigating to files, then downloads, and selecting the item. You can also choose Open Downloads folder to access the Downloads section of your file explorer. This version can be edited and updated as it is not linked to the original source file located in the class materials files. Open and SharePoint allows you to open the complete class materials library for a review in the SharePoint application. If you open the document in this way, you can access many of the features of SharePoint, including document information, version history, and sharing options. This is a read only file that cannot be edited or updated. Open in desktop app will open this individual document in the full desktop version of the application. This is a read only file that cannot be edited or updated. Open in browser will open this individual document in the web version of the application using your default browser. This is a read only file that cannot be edited or updated. If you'd like. You can access these actions without having to open the document by choosing the ellipsis on the main screen. Using the ellipsis allows you to access the Copy link option, which would allow you to generate a link to this item that can be pasted in another application, such as your Class Notebook students section for easy access in the future. This is also a read-only file that cannot be edited or updated. You can also choose to copy this item into another team's workspace you have access to or save a copy to your OneDrive. This will create a copy in your personal OneDrive storage. This version of the item can be edited and can be updated as it is not linked to the original source file, which is located in the class materials folder. Now that you understand the class materials folder and how to review and copy the content for updating, you can move ahead to the next video in this series. 6. Classroom Interaction: The class workspace is an interactive space for you and other students to learn and grow as individuals and as a group. You can interact with others in the classroom channels through public conversations in the post tab, through joining the virtual classroom or meeting space, and through private instant message chats. When interacting with teachers and other students in the virtual class workspace, it's important that you remember to be respectful of others. Ensure that you're engaging in appropriate online behavior and are communicating with teachers and other students regarding school activities, assignments, and subjects. Be aware of your language choices and how your written communication can be read and interpreted by others. For example, writing in all caps or adding many exclamation points could make someone feel as though you're yelling at them or are being forceful in your message to avoid misinterpretation, ensure your written communication is formal. You should always read your message out loud prior to sending it. Strong language, profanity, harassment, threats, and bullying of any kind will not be tolerated in the virtual class workspace. Posting or sharing negative and offensive comments, posts, messages, photos, and inappropriate material is not acceptable in the team's environment. Filters have been put in place and are designed to detect profanity, harassment, and threats. When triggered, the owners of the workspace will be made aware of the situation and a copy of inappropriate material will be made available to them. Now that you understand the measures in place to ensure that you're part of a safe and inclusive learning environment. You can move ahead to the next video in this series. 7. Understanding the Sections of the Class Notebook: The Class Notebook is activated by your teacher. So the section groups within it may vary depending on what is required for your class. There are three default section groups that all Class Notebooks will contain. Your personal student's section group is a space that can only be accessed by yourself and by your teacher. No other student can access your notes unless you have chosen to share your notebook or its contents with others. The teacher will determine which defaults sections are available within your section group. You can use this space to take class notes, work on project items, collect and complete class handouts, and so much more. We will explore how to add content and how to share items in a later video in this series, the collaboration space is open to everyone in the class. All class members can read or write on anything in this part of the notebook. Teachers and students can collaborate on and create new sections and pages in ways that work best for them and their collaborative learning environment. Multiple users can edit a single document in real time and changes are merged automatically. The content library is a place for teachers to house and share important materials, such as readings or worksheets with you. Only a teacher can put materials into the Content Library and you cannot modify or delete content from this section. However, you are able to read or copy content from the content library into your own notebooks. We will be looking at copying items from one of these section groups into your personal student's section group in a later video in this series. If enabled, some teachers will allow you to add additional sections and pages to the collaboration space or to your personal section group. To do this, select the open in-app drop-down and choose if you'd like to open your notebook in the local or web version of the OneNote application. To add a new section, choose the plus Section button at the bottom of the screen. Give your new section in name to add a new page. And sure you're in the section you'd like to have the page added to. Next click Plus page. A new Untitled page will be added to the selected section. Type a page header here, and this will be used as the page name to help you identify it in the page listing. If this feature has been disabled and you require a new section or page, please contact your teacher to have it added on your behalf. Now that we've explored the default section groups of the Class Notebook, move ahead to learn about adding content to the notebook pages. 8. Adding Content to the Class Notebook: Your Class Notebook is an infinite electronic notebook that allows you to take and manage your classroom notes, build assignments, and work together with other students if needed. The default content mode is typed text. So to begin adding content, simply click on a page and begin typing. A OneNote offers many additional content types for you to build and create pages of information in your notebook. The Home tab manages your typed text by offering different formatting options, such as font type, bolding, bullets, and so much more. You can also activate the dictate function that will enable a talk to text feature transcribing all of your spoken words into typed content on the page. This tab also allows you to use tags which help you group together parts of content from different pages. This makes finding content easier in the future. The Insert tab allows you to add tables, attachments, photos, audio recordings, and more into the pages of your notebook. The Draw tab allows you to insert handwritten notes into the notebook if you have a touchscreen device or an electronic pen enabled. The View tab allows you to update the page color. View the various authors who may have contributed to this page, and access the Immersive Reader, which helps to increase readability of content on this page. Once your content is added to a page, you can select the content boxes and move them around the page to best suit your desired layout. Once you have explored the OneNote Class Notebook for yourself, you can move ahead to the next video. 9. Copy Content into your Student Section: To copy content from the content library or collaboration space into your student's section group. Navigate to the page you need within that section group. We will copy this page from the Content Library, which is a read-only section of the notebook. Right-click on the page title. Choose copy. Now navigate to the students section group and right-click on the section name. You'd like to copy this page into. Select paste. The page will be pasted into the section and you can now edit content on the page as you need. This new page that was created in your section group is not linked to the original content from the content library or the collaboration space. Another option is to copy a link to this page, navigate to the page in the content library or collaboration space, and right-click on the page. Choose Copy link to this page. Now paste that link into a page of your section group or into an email if needed. When you click this link, it will open that page within its original location of the section group for your review. When opened, the page will maintain its original permission, which means if the page was read only, you cannot alter or update it. You can copy and paste a link to the entire section as well. The section will also maintain its original permissions. So if it's a read-only section, you can only view the content within it. Now that you understand how to copy content into your student's section group, you can move ahead to the next video in this series. 10. Organizing your Notebook for Success: The Class Notebook is a great resource for you to organize your class notes, project work, and other important school items. You can manage notes, checklists, and other distributed content from this integrated application and use sections and pages to help you organize the content. When your teacher sets up your class notebook, they will enable specific sections for you to help you organize yourself and distribute content into. If needed, you can add additional sections to help further organize and manage your schoolwork, as we outlined in video seven of this series. To manage your schoolwork and tasks, you can insert a checklist using tags from the home tab, choose the tags dropdown menu, and select to do. Add your first Checklist Item beside the box. Press enter and a new checkbox will be added for you to continue to build your list. As you complete the various tasks, you can check them off of your list to search for outstanding tasks from throughout the sections of your notebook. Use the dropdown to open the application outside of teams in the web version using your default browser. Or you can open the local one node application. Select the search icon from the search field, select the to-do tags. Now you can review outstanding items. Select the item to be taken to that notebook, section and page to help keep all of your documents and information together. You can send a copy of any item that you've received into your OneNote notebook. If your teacher or another student has shared a PowerPoint presentation, Word document or Excel spreadsheet, select the file tab and choose Print. Under printer, use the dropdown to select OneNote for Windows ten, choose the Print button. A new window will pop up, allowing you to select the specific location within your notebook that you'd like to send a copy of this item to choose, okay, when you've selected the ideal spot for the item, that content is now available for you in OneNote saved alongside all your other important school information and notes.
