Microsoft Office 365 and Kiddom: A Perfect Combination for Collaboration.
Kiddom and Microsoft Office 365 are a powerful combination for teachers looking to enhance collaboration in their classrooms. With MS O365’s collaborative editing features and Kiddom’s ability to assign groups of students assignments independently from the rest of the class, you have a project-based learning match made in heaven.
Check out the step-by-step process below to get started.
Step One: Use Office 365 to create an assignment
1. Teachers will have to make an assignment for each grouping of students and a document for each of those groupings.
2. Make sure sharing permissions (able to edit) are set appropriately in each Office Doc/Sway/Etc.
Step Two: Create a Playlist With Kiddom
1. Create a Playlist in your Kiddom Planner for the activity you want students to collaborate on, add all the necessary documents from O365 to each assignment (Pro-Tip: Less is more! Add multiple O365 documents to each assignment so you can reduce the amount of assignments on the screen.)
2. After creating your project playlist and adding all the necessary files, you can drag and drop the assignments to Timeline from Planner and assign them to each student group.
Now your students can collaborate in O365 and keep all of their documents in one location for you to monitor and provide feedback. The coolest part is that you can provide private, individual feedback to each student in the group using Kiddom’s commenting feature. So your students can collaborate away in their Word Doc, but you can use Kiddom to discuss individual student work privately with each student in the group. Pretty awesome right?
