Description

300 pupils, 20 classes, grades 1-9, ages 7-15

Goals

Goals: wanted to start using the office 365 cloud services (2nd grade, 8 years), we started also to use the Group-tool to make news from our school

Methods

Methods: First I showed to the pupil what we can do with Group-tool (write stories, and commend other pupil´s stories…). Then we started working with computers. I invited them to our group and pupils started to write their stories in our Group. When everybody were ready, they started to commend other pupils´ works. They had to write something positive.

Materials

Materials: Pupils used computers in computer classroom with the Group-tool. Some used also mobile phones to take pictures to their news. Afterwards their presented their news in our classroom with dataprojector.

Assessment

Assessment: Because the goal was to start using the office 365 cloud services and start to use the Group-tool their skills were not so important. With the Command-tool pupil practised to evaluate other pupil´s news and writing skills.

ICT

We should be learning different subjects by using ICT. It should become a natural part of school subjects and projects. With young pupil we start with small steps. This project was the first time we used office 365 cloud service so it was all new to my pupil.
