Session Overview

Why should you attend:

It is important that school leaders and teachers have knowledge of how
real-time data insights can accelerate learning and provide information on when, and for whom to prepare and execute intervention strategies. This webinar will provide an introduction to this subject.

What can you expect:

In this webinar you will be given an insight into how visibility and real-time feedback on student engagement, emotional well-being, student performance, and even specifics such as reading fluency can assist in unlocking learning opportunities. Tools within Microsoft products will be demonstrated that deliver such functionality. School leaders can also make use of key indicators such as student performance and organisational  operations to directly impact on future teaching and learning strategies.

Microsoft products that will be covered include: Microsoft Teams, Minecraft, Insights, Microsoft Learn and Edge.

Who is it for:

This is the concluding part of a three part series entitled `Enabling Equitable Education´ which explores the role Microsoft solutions play in providing a rich learning journey for students. This webinar is for school leaders, those responsible for the strategic deployment of technology, and teachers who are using Education Technology to support teaching and learning both in, and outside the classroom.
