Teachers in Fresno Unified have been able to use Microsoft Reflect for SEL check-ins within their Class Teams for a while now. This quick and easy-to-use tool provides a great way for students to reflect on their academic progress and their personal well-being.
But what about the rest of us? Well, guess what – Reflect is now available as a web application, expanding its accessibility beyond Microsoft Teams and OneNote. That’s right, it is now available for all staff to use with their work teams or during training sessions. You can open Reflect from any device, whether it’s a desktop, tablet, or mobile, without the need to download a separate app. With powerful features and a user-friendly interface accessed through a web browser, Reflect makes it easy to create impactful check-ins, enabling you to gain well-being insights and build a happier, healthier learning community.
To get started, go to the Microsoft Reflect home page and sign in with your school account. Or, to start an activity, navigate directly to reflect.new. After creating the check-in, you can share a link or QR code to collect responses, which is great for live presentations. You have full control over who is invited to respond and what they can see. As responses come in, you gain valuable insights into your learners’ emotions, strengths, and areas that may require attention. Wondering how this app works in detail? – Check out the video tutorial below from Microsoft’s own Mike Tholfsen. If you are new to using Microsoft Reflect in Class Teams, click here.
