Many teachers use iPads as a powerful tool for instruction, creation and collaboration. As schools move towards remote teaching and learning, online collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams allow a single communication hub to run classes and lessons.

The Teams iPad App allows teachers to broadcast and share their screen directly to a Team Channel. This provides an opportunity for educators to utilise their favourite apps to create engaging and clear instruction videos directly from their iPad. 

This may include:

The workflow video below allows teachers the freedom to use tools and applications they are comfortable with, whilst at the same providing rich, authentic content for their students. Specialist teachers can harness individual tools for their subject area, and direct students to other software that the students may require for projects and assignments.

[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.3.4″][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”4.3.4″][et_pb_video src=”” _builder_version=”4.3.4″][/et_pb_video][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][et_pb_row _builder_version=”4.3.4″ custom_padding=”||2px|0px||”][et_pb_column type=”4_4″ _builder_version=”4.3.4″][et_pb_text admin_label=”Text” _builder_version=”4.3.4″ custom_margin=”-58px||31px|14px|false|false” custom_padding=”57px|||0px||”]

Once you have mastered the workflow you will discover new and exciting ways to deliver content to your students and start to rethink how students can communicate back to you through their own shared screen broadcast.
