Digital school is a platform for learning, teaching, communication and cooperation in the digital environment. It constitutes the basis for creating a secure, supportive, efficient and comprehensive digital education system. The digital school is designed to bring together learning resources for children and adolescents, parents, guardians, carers, teachers and other professionals in the education system. In this way, its original concept was expanded and, especially in the Digital Classroom segment which is based on the Learning Passport platform, enriched with a multitude of digital materials for different users. The digital school includes both an information portal and a web directory of online educational resources.
Digital School services provide learning support to children, encourage cooperation and communication. In addition to supporting the use of Office 365 programs and services, in the digital classroom children and adolescents have access to a variety of educational materials that can complement school learning, but can also be part of informal education. In addition, contents and services intended for children and adolescents with disabilities have also been developed.
Parents and guardians will find a multitude of materials at the Digital School, especially in the Digital Classroom segment, that they can use when providing support to children in the situation of distance learning, but also during regular classes in schools. Accordingly, instructions for the use of digital tools were prepared, as well as detailed suggestions for independent learning with the child in the first cycle of primary school, and various contents intended for parenting support were developed.
The digital school provides support to educators, teachers and professional associates in their educational work. In addition to the content for students, which can be used in the teaching process, in the Digital Classroom the teaching staff can also find self-guided training in all areas of work of the school, with special emphasis on work procedures and support for inclusion. Detailed information on Office 365 digital tools for work, communication and collaboration is also available on the platform.
Different types of content for work and learning are grouped into lessons, courses and categories, making it easier to search the platform. Here are some types of digital content that you can find in the Digital Classroom:
In addition to classes recorded within the #učidoma initiative, the platform contains videos from various fields, as well as DAISY audio-visual materials intended for all children, especially the visually impaired, as well as children with dyslexia and dysgraphia.
In addition to various multimedia materials, a large number of courses in the Digital Classroom also contain exercises for independent work at home, as well as short quizzes, knowledge tests and final tests to check what has been learned.
Educational games, quizzes, questions, puzzles and other interesting interactive tasks and exercises, always accompanied by sound recordings, enable children and parents to be active and have fun learning.
The learning platform contains a multitude of documents in PDF and Word format, suitable for reading and printing. Books in electronic form, manuals, instructions, plans and other types of materials are available.
To access the learning content, you need to have a school Office 365 user account and use it to log in to the Digital Classroom. The process is quick and easy, and at the same time allows free access to all Office 365 services.
All user accounts for teachers, children and students are created by the kindergarten and school. In case of any problem with the user account, only the kindergarten/ school can make the necessary interventions.
The teaching staff has been granted an Office 365 A1 for Faculty license, and in schools that have additional licenses, they also have the Office 365 A1 Plus for Faculty license, which allows the installation of the Office 365 software package on five personal devices.
Children and adolescents are assigned an Office 365 A1 for Students license, and in schools that have this option, they also get an Office 365 A1 Plus for Students license, which allows you to install the Office 365 software package on five personal devices.
The Digital Classroom is designed in the form of self-guided courses that allow everyone to adjust the pace of learning to their needs and abilities. In order to be able to interrupt and continue working, as well as to monitor the use of the learning platform over a longer period of time, it is necessary to have a user account.
The Digital Classroom is a quality source of useful information for a wide group of users and represents an important learning resource. However, Digionica is conceived exclusively as a supplement to the regular teaching process, the existing framework of continuous professional development of teachers and as a source of educational content in the field of informal education.
