“Fulton County Schools has already invested in Office 365 for all students. Unfortunately, when students don’t have 1:1 device access, it makes using the tool difficult because students forget to log off and wind up using each other’s accounts. Office 365 on a 1:1 device allows our students to use FORMS for testing, Outlook for email, NOTEBOOK as an online notebook so they never lose their notes, ONE DRIVE for all of their files, and SWAY, POWERPOINT, and WORD for class assignments.
Students can send work directly to their teachers without having to troubleshoot shared ipads and constantly swap out accounts. This is especially problematic when trying to use FORMS. With 1:1 devices, teachers can take assessments from within OFFICE 365 and have immediate data that can then be shared, stored, or converted into graphs.
Not only would 1:1 be easier for the students, it would allow teachers to deliver and collect student material digitally, thus requiring less time and loss of student material.”
