Powerful New Functionality
for Teaching in Microsoft Teams
Beedle provides an ideal framework for planning and sequencing lessons.
A hierarchical structure provides the flexibility to store and reference lesson plans in a variety of ways, typically grouped as either a chronological series or a scheme of learning. Each plan is a digital container that may contain free text, attachments, links, learning objectives and Microsoft Teams Assignments.
Learning objectives from your own bespoke framework may be linked to each plan. Microsoft Teams Assignments may be created without leaving Beedle, or existing Assignments linked to a plan.
Each plan may be placed in a shared calendar, visible to teachers and students, allowing for fast navigation to the relevant plan directly from this calendar.
Any section of planning may be copied and reused within the same team, a different team or even during a subsequent academic year—including all resources and Microsoft Teams Assignments associated with the original plans.
Beedle supports teaching during the lesson in many different ways.
Attendance may be registered and different categories of absence recorded, both at the time of the lesson and for past and future lessons.
Student progress may be recorded either through ad-hoc assessment or through assessment against defined learning objectives.
Students may be quickly sorted into different groupings, members of these groups easily managed, and groups saved for future reference. To support questioning techniques, a random student selector indicates which student should be next and which have already been selected.
Beedle makes it easy for teachers to immediately capture their own reflections on a lesson and record this prominently within the lesson plan.
Any links or attached documents in Beedle may be shared with students, and added to a shared calendar, with clear visibility of which resources are shared and with no risk of students deleting shared resources from the plan. This provides the facility to share information linked to a particular lesson, such as learning objectives, lesson outlines, preparation work and key dates.
Feedback may be recorded and shared with individual students, with the option to share these comments with teachers of the same student across the school. Such comments may be tagged, searched and collated for later reference or to inform reporting.
Microsoft Teams Assignments may be allocated managed within Beedle.
