There’s a lot for educators to keep up with, like new technologies, upcoming events, students’ emotional and academic needs, and professional development. Luckily, managing all of that gets a little easier with the Microsoft Educator Center monthly newsletter, which shares the latest information about Microsoft Teams, Flipgrid, Minecraft, and more.
This valuable collection of time-saving tips, creative lesson ideas, tech insights, and learning opportunities helps educators support student learning while enhancing their own skills and knowledge. Plus, it’s a quick read, with skimmable text and convenient links to more in-depth information.
Content that’s useful, actionable, and inspiring
The newsletter covers all grade levels, from kindergarten through higher ed, and subjects from STEM to SEL. It includes immersive activities, student workshops, virtual events, support resources, and online classes to help educators further their own skills.
For example, they might learn how to take students on a virtual field trip with Flipgrid events, get a link to a free demo experience from Minecraft: Education Edition, or access a library of student workshops like virtual museum tours and book readings.
They’ll also get the latest on Teams features, video tutorials, upcoming events, and special offers—all especially helpful for educators during remote and hybrid learning.
