How students logon to Firefly to check their tasks

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams allows students to connect and communicate with their teachers, and participate in scheduled Teams Meeting lessons. Firefly, and email still need to be checked for tasks and school communication.

For the best experience with ‘Microsoft Teams‘, students should install the app onto the device they use for home learning. The link to install Teams is available here or via the Google Play or Apple App stores if you use a smartphone or Tablet.

Once installed, the app is logged on to using your student email address, and normal school password.

A Webcam or device camera is not needed for students to participate in the scheduled lessons. A built in microphone or mic\headphones can be used to respond to questions by voice. If a mic is not available it is still possible to respond to the teacher via text responses.

Any scheduled Teams meetings appear in the Calendar and an invite is emailed to students college email.

At the time of the scheduled lesson students can join via the calendar, link in email, or via their class team channel.

Once the scheduled lesson begins, Students should mute their microphones. If they would like to ask a question they can ‘Raise their hand’ or type a message using the message button. Microphones should only be unmuted when requested to do so by the teacher. Students need to remember to ‘lower their hand’, and re-mute their mic afterward. For further information on Teams etiquette, and expected Behaviour\sanctions, please refer to the Teams Policies below.
