At Didcot Girls’ School, we aim to support the appropriate and effective use of digital technology within education to give all students the opportunity to improve and develop their digital skills.
As DGS in an Office 365 school, your daughter will have access to an Office 365 school email. Once logged into her school email, they will be able to access further Office 365 applications, including OneDrive – which will then allow your daughter to access her work from home. Many of our teachers will also use Microsoft Teams, which is an online platform to centralise communication and resources for their classes.
Below are various video tutorials that will allow you to appropriately use the different platforms that are used to support your daughter with their studies.
