Welsh teachers use OneNote to coordinate preparations for new school

Apr 27, 2016   |   Thomas Kohnstamm

Ysgol Bae Baglan is a new, state-of-the-art school for 1,600 students set to open this September in Wales.

As the teachers currently work at four different schools, they needed an effective way to communicate and collaborate in order to guarantee a smooth arrival for the students this fall.

They started by implementing Office 365 Groups, which enabled department teams to work together in a single hub. The Office 365 Groups also allows collaboration in OneNote. Each group is automatically provisioned with a OneNote Notebook, alongside group email, giving them a space to collaborate.

The school’s assistant principal, Stewart Davies, writes, “It wasn’t long before teachers started to realize that the ability to attach and print documents right into a OneNote Notebook not only made department meetings more effective by sharing items before the meeting, but OneNote had great potential for the classroom.”
