Goals

Goals: In this project we wanted that pupils are orientated themselves to O365 cloud services, especially groups tool to use helping studies.

Methods

Methods: First I created O365 group for pupils of one class. Pupils are informed to find out ideas or projects for lessons of crafts from internet (for example some wooden furnitures, DIY projects or electronical machines). When they have found out some interesting project, they have informed to share that link to O365 group for every pupil in this group.
