Presentation Tralee is a Microsoft school. We utilise the Microsoft Office 365 as our online learning platform.
Microsoft Office 365 was introduced to our teaching staff in September 2016 and to our students in December 2018 as a significant step in the development of eLearning in Presentation Tralee.
Staff can avail of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) on Office 365 from a combination of the PDST (Professional Development Service for Teachers), external providers (like Wriggle & Tara 365 Learning) and internal support from the Digital Team through Croke Park hours & during lunchtimes.
Teachers are committed to a Blended Learning approach going forward. This involves combining traditional classroom-based teaching, learning & assessment with the use of Office 365 features such as Teams, Class Notebook, OneDrive & Outlook, among others.
Students have unique Usernames & Passwords that allow them to access the suite of Microsoft Office 365 apps (above) as well as traditional software elements like Word, Excel & PowerPoint.
Sample Username= email@example.com
Usernames and passwords are issued to students by the IT Co-ordinator. If a student forgets their password, they should contact the IT department who will issue a new password.
