1 Student Logins And Office 365 Professional DevelopmentAugust 2013Hello!SAISD has asked us (Microsoft) to present to you some information about SAISD systems and our newest partnership product, Office 365 for students.
2 Today’s Tips! Understanding SAISD’s Technology Preparing for Student Use of TechnologyAccessing Student Logins and PasswordsOffice 365Fun and Useful Digital Ideas To Enhance Your Curriculum!Today, I’m going to share with you these points to help you understand the SAISD technology system, in a broad sense, so you will understand some of the steps that must be taken to get students ready to use technology. Of course, there will be a fun part, too, when we can look at Office 365 and discuss some of the active and great ways to use these in the curriculum.
3 This is SAISD Technology Federal lawsState lawsLocalBudgetStudent SuccessDataHardware & SoftwareInstructional TechnologyOperationsInternet, Security, And CommunicationsNetwork & InfrastructureBusiness ServicesFirst….let’s get a broad overview of SAISD’s technology system.Most classroom teachers see computer labs or a computer station and think, “that’s technology”, and it is, but there is so much more to a school system of technology.Our technology is more like a wheel with all parts turning to create student success. As the classroom teacher, you drive this wheel to keep our students moving with technology!Understanding the parts will help you operate within the whole. We have a data division, a business services division, networking and infrastructure services, internet, security, and communications technicians, operations folks, instructional technology, and our hardware and software experts.Over all of these divisions and your campus and classroom are the federal and state laws, local policies, and budget guidelines that outline our scope of use. In particular, there will be 2 federal regulations that will impact how and when you work with students and technology. We’ll talk about those as briefly as possible and only as they impact you and your students’ actions.
4 Preparing for Student Use of Technology According to Federal regulations, “we” must appropriately filter and supervise student use of electronic systems as is appropriate to their level and capacity.Therefore…Individual logins are necessary so the District may apply appropriate filtering and provide suitable resources within our system & budget capabilities.The first federal law that directly impacts you and your students regards supervision and access to online resources. According to Federal regulations, “we” must appropriately filter and supervise student use of electronic systems as is appropriate to their level and capacity.The District complies with this with the use of individual logins. Each level of login – student, teacher, guest- has the right permissions applied to it. And teachers, guess what…the lowest level of access would be which one? …. ….. Guest or generic campus accounts, so avoid using those.
6 Professional Preparation for Student Use of Technology According to more Federal regulations, teachers mustReceive professional training annually for keeping students safe …. online.Deliver 2 lessons to all students before allowing them access to school electronic systems.This training is given at the campus level every year.For more information, please visit the training course athttps://saisdecampus.remote-learner.net/course/view.php?id=6The second regulation that affects your classroom and kids deals squarely with online safety.This Federal reg states that teachers must receive annual training in online safety, and that students must annually receive 2 lessons on this topic BEFORE BEFORE BEFORE they may use computers and online services.SAISD works within this regulation by providing the Cybersafety training to teachers online. This training is usually arranged by the campus administrators. The training also contains an extensive library of Cybersafety lessons for the teachers to use with students. Again, the campus administrators usually design the when, wheres, and hows of the Cybersafety student lessons so that all students receive training.Remember, all of this Cybersafety training is supposed to be completed before students use technology in a school. This would impact your classroom and currriculum choices.
7 Understanding Student Logins All students (K-12) have individual, District-assigned logins and passwords.Students must be told what those logins are and how to use them.Teachers provide the information.In a school district with 54,000 students, we need a little help getting information to each student about their logins.Students are told what their logins are and how to use them*by teachers*after Cybersafety trainingThis means you need to keep your eyes and ears “peeped” open for campus rollout of the training, so you can roll out login information to your group of students.
8 Understanding Student Logins THE LOGINTHE PASSWORDAll student logins follow this formula: First name + last initial + variation of live.saisd.net Example:Initial passwords follow this formula: ID # + Campus # Example:This information will help classroom teachers work with the student logins and passwords once you have them. It’s very helpful to understand the logic that created our student logins and passwords.
9 Locating Student Information Student Account ManageriData PortalWe said earlier that teachers will be distributing the logins and passwords after Cybersafety training, right? Right.Where do teachers find that information?You can choose two different systems to retrieve it.The first is the Student Account Manager. The SAM is simply a window into a database of student login information. Teachers log into SAM (the same way they do their ) and have instant access to rosters of their current students with login information.SAM also has three important toggles that teachers use.Activate accountReset PasswordDisable accountThe second tool for login information is iData Portal. If classroom teachers are comfortable using this database, they may view student login account information on the demographics panel for each student.nova.saisd.net > SAMSaisd.net > Employees > iData
10 Activating K-7 Accounts Student Account ManagerFederal ComplianceTeachers, After you receive your annual Digital Citizenship training, and after your students have received 2 lessons in this, you must activate K-7 accounts in the Student Account Manager. It’s simply a matter of hitting the “Activate” link, but it is important.Remember the federal law that states we can’t let students use online systems and resources until after they’ve received Cybersafety training?This regulation is so fierce that the District is required to keep K-7 (think of the age of these students) accounts inactive until the training has occurred.The District has made it brilliantly easy to accomplish this.Once your campus has performed the Cybersafety training to teachers and students, the designated teacher will log into the Student Account Manager and click on the “activate accounts” option.Ta-da! Pretty impressive for a district with 54,000 students.By designated teacher, we mean this is a campus and principal decision. It may be the most logical decision for the campus to use second period teachers, homeroom, science, etc. Again, this is a matter of keeping your ears open for the right information from your administrators. Still, you may need to do this for new or transferring students, so keep this in mind.

19 Share SHARE SharePoint Organize Discover Build Manage SharePoint Online is our document repository which takes the familiar SharePoint Server technology and delivers it as an online service. SharePoint Online provides a central place where students and teachers can create sites to connect and collaborate together.We’re introducing an array of new social features that let you share what you’re working on, ask questions and keep track of what your peers are doing with updates being delivered to your activity feed.The heart of the social experience in SharePoint 2013 is the newsfeed – it’s a summary of all your social interactions from your microblogs and community conversations, to the sites, content, and people you follow.The newsfeed will give teachers the ability to post, to reply to student comments, to like. If you’re following a hashtag, or someone posts a comment on a community of site all of this activity will appear on your newsfeed. The newsfeed can also be filtered to show information targeted directly at you, to help you quickly get involved in the conversation.There are multiple feeds as part of the social experience, your personal newsfeed, a institution feed that is used to share information with everyone and individual site feeds.Following in SharePoint 2013 includes not only people, but documents which can help everyone in the institutions keep a close eye on what’s being seen and used, for example, if there is a certain study guide the at the students are using more than others.SharePoint OnlineShare important documents, insights, and status with colleaguesKeep teams in sync and manage important projectsFind important documents and people easilyStay up to date with company information and news10 GB per tenant MB per userShare
20 Create sites in a few simple clicks Prescriptive guidance helps you set-up sitesCapture meeting notes with a shared notebookThe first thing you’ll notice about team sites is that we’ve built an intuitive wizard right that guides you through setting permissions, inviting people, creating lists and libraries and adding a custom theme to your site. Through tight integration with OneNote we’re also introducing team notebooks with this release to help you capture and track team meeting notes but the integration with Office doesn’t stop there.
21 Store, sync and share 7GB SkyDrive Pro Individual Storage Store, share and sync your documents with SkyDrive ProSkyDrive Pro is a service that we’re introducing with the next release of SharePoint that allows organizations to provision and manage personal cloud storage for their employees. You can now sync your content in SharePoint to your desktop with SkyDrive Pro, so if you’re working remotely or about to jump on a plane your docs are just a mouse click away.
22 Streamline common tasks Drag and drop content into SharePointLive documentpreviewsWe’ve really focused on making sharing simple in this release. You can drag and drop content directly into your document libraries and by hovering over a document you can see live document preview and at a glance see who you’re sharing with and when the document was last edited. Without leaving the library you can edit your documents using Office Web Apps, and in one click share it with a school colleague. We’re taking document sharing and storage one step further with the introduction of SkyDrive Pro.Track who you’resharing withEdit, share or follow documents with one click
24 Work together securely Share documents with people inside and outside your organizationManage permissionsSharing documents is easier than ever before. You can provide external partners and vendors secure access to SharePoint sites or documents without violating the data governance and protection policies set by IT. You can enforce sign-in and set permissions at the document or site level to ensure you can work together with anyone securely.Enforce sign-in to comply with data governance and protection policies
