This is the transcript of the 'Collaborating using online applications' video
In the classroom, you can leverage the Main Learning Display to assist you with collaborating in real time with web-based applications such as Google Slides or Microsoft PowerPoint. In this example, I have prepared a quick writing activity using the template provided by the Digital Learning Selector.
Leveraging the ability to share Google Slides, the learning activity can be shared with students. In this example, each student has been allocated a unique slide to work on whilst I display a writing prompt on the MLD. I am able to combine the MLD's native digital linking with the content displayed on the MLD.
To maintain visibility over students, you are able to switch between different views on the document. Using the MLD and shared web-based applications may assist with providing visibility over student work as the teacher can move around the classroom with their wireless keyboard and mouse while the students are engaged in the learning activity. This can be beneficial when providing feedback.
Students can also access their work on the MLD and may wish to share what they have created with their peers. Combining web-based applications through the mini PC and the MLD can assist the teacher with enhancing student engagement and participation in their learning.
