Microsoft Forms

An update to Microsoft Forms lets you use branching logic to create personalized assessments. Adding this technology allows you to change quiz questions based on student answers. In a quiz that branches, students only see questions that are relevant to them. So, if students get an answer wrong, they might be directed to additional instructions and practice questions. You can learn more about Microsoft Forms here.

Office Lens

Office Lens can be used on any phone, it allows you to turn your phone into a scanner basically.
  1. You can take photos of the whiteboard notes and put them directly into OneNote
  2. You can take a picture of a PDF and convert it into a word doc so that it is editable 
  3. It will automatically sharpen and crop the images you take, even if they are taken on an angle.
Watch the video and if you would like me to set it up with you or see how I use it, pop in and see me. I am finding it great with revision with my seniors.
