Empowering every Student to achieve more

The world is changing faster than ever – as are the skills students will need to be life-ready by the time they finish secondary school. With affordable and easy to manage cloud technology that transforms classroom time, educators can focus on delivering personalized learning experiences that help enable better learning outcomes.

Office365 is available to all LGfL schools as part of their LGfL subscription. USO account synchronisation is also possible.

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is a Digital hub that brings conversations, collaborative planning and education applications together in one place. Teachers can create classrooms, connect in professional learning communities and communicate with colleagues – all from a single experience in Office 365 for free!

Your most efficient class workflow yet!

School Data Sync automatically populates classes with student rosters connected to the school’s information system. Atomwide can support this process by raising a support case.

OneNote Class Notebooks are built into every class, allowing teachers to organize interactive lessons and deliver personalized learning right from Teams.

Apps integrate into the classroom experience, so teachers can quickly access the Office 365 apps they already use – like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Planner – and customize their classroom with education apps.

End-to-end assignment management in Teams enables teachers to move quickly and effortlessly from creation and distribution to grading and feedback.

Digital Transformation Toolkit

Our Toolkit is split into 4 key areas:

  • Set up an Office 365 for Education tenant

  • Import school, student, teacher, and class data with School Data Sync (within Intune for Education)

  • Configure Microsoft Store for Education for browsing, buying, and distributing apps to students

  • Manage Windows 10 devices, personalised settings and apps through the easy to use dashboard

  • Quickly set up Windows 10 devices in with 'express set up'

  • Log in and use your devices!

This Toolkit should take under 10 minutes to complete and you’ll be sent a summary of your responses with a unique link that will allow you to revisit and update as your school progresses with cloud implementation.

LGfL will use the information you have provided to help tailor support to meet your needs based on where you are currently on your school transformation.

We also hope that you find it useful to identify the next steps that you should be thinking about in your development and implementation of a cloud platform.
