Advantages of Student-Owned Mobile Devices
There are many advantages to students bringing their own devices to school. More obviously, students are able to connect with an unlimited selection of resources. Other advantages include:
- Quick research.
- Collaboration of work with other students as well as the ability for staff to provide feedback.
- Photo and video recording of experiments, speeches, field trips and assignments.
- Access to online learning resources such as Reading Plus and Education Perfect.
- Multimedia presentation of work.
However, although it is not required or compatible with all devices, students are also freely provided with access to the desktop version of Office 365 and can log in with their student email account here: https://portal.office.com/
Only on compatible devices will an “Install Office” button appear towards the upper right area of the page. The first option, Office 365 Apps, is the one you seek.
