Via HWB+ pupils have access to a range of online tools including Blogs, Wikis, E-Mail,access to J2 Launch and Microsoft Office 365. The latter includes access to online versions of Word, Excel and Powerpoint so that all pupils can have access to the same productivity tools. Pupils also have access to One Drive as a useful and secure place to store their data in the cloud.
Over the next year, staff and pupils will be getting to grips with this exciting new tool and exploring its many possibilities for enhancing learning and improving communication and links between home and school.
