Distributor Maverick AV Solutions has launched expert platform training for teachers utilising the Microsoft Teams Platform. Beginning at Dagenham Park Church of England School.

David Johnson, general manager at Maverick AV Solutions says;

“Microsoft Teams has become essential for modern learning at all stages of education. Many educators are familiar with the use of Microsoft Office, however the transition to hybrid working requires all new skill sets. We have created and tested a set of training sessions for our integrators to deploy rapidly into the education market.”

The course is broken down into five modules starting with a basic introduction to Teams then developing into an exploration of the platform. Across the modules the teachers will learn how to utilise their students, empowering them to create their own methods of education. The final session contains a number of scenarios in which participants apply their knowledge as well as a platform review.

The course can be delivered in English, German, Spanish, French, and Mandarin. Tutorials are delivered live through a Teams call to maximise usage of the platform, allowing participants to ask any questions they have.

Bronagh O’Neill, deputy head at Dagenham Park explains;

“The last few months have meant that the integration of Microsoft Teams has been essential to enable the teachers to collaborate and keep the school operating whilst we are all working remotely. We took this training to enable us to make better use of it as a tool, with a core group then pass knowledge to the rest of the team.”

By enabling teachers to become confident with the Teams platform lessons can be presented and work managed more efficiently. This has a positive impact on the key performance indicators of students which will help to ensure that hybrid education is a viable and desirable method of teaching.

The Teams training launch coincides with the launch of a smart learning bundle from Logitech, which enables video collaboration using Microsoft Teams in the classroom, available from Maverick throughout Europe.
