This is early level digital: Spotlight on practitioner collaboration

Thu, 18 April 2024, 16:00-17:00

Do you have access to Microsoft Teams within your ELC setting but are unsure how it can help you? Please join us in the 60-minute practical demo session for beginners, where we will focus on how you can use Microsoft Teams as your one stop digital shop with your ELC team, for organising, sharing and collaborating on content and for assisting communication. For example, you can all work together, in real time on planning documents, staffing rotas, risk assessments and shared calendars.*

You can communicate via audio calls, video calls, private chat messages and Team posts, and start conversations centred around a particular document.

You can also utilise Teams with practitioners from other settings, to support children’s transitions and to plan and work together on community events.

In this session, we will demonstrate how to create your own Staff Team and how you can use it to connect with your fellow practitioners to distribute information, communicate and work collaboratively on documents.

The demo Team you will see in the session will be a Team within Glow, however you do not need a Glow log in to join this session. However, if you do have a Glow account, please have your log in details to hand to join some of the interactive elements of the session.

*Please check with your local authority digital team or organisation's lead officer for Information Security on protocols for file sharing.

This session is for ELC practitioners working across a variety of settings in Scotland.

This session will be repeated 5 times throughout the year, morning and twilight options.

A Glow login is NOT required to join.
