It’s always a little hard to see summer go, but we’re here to help get you set up and ready for the new school year. We have a brand-new season of “You Can in :90” that we think you’ll love. This series features 90-second, how-to videos based on your top-requested tips and tricks using Microsoft Education’s technology in education. And we have a whole day of back-to-school activities to get you amped for the year ahead—and yes, we’re talking Mike Tholfsen and Adam ShortShorts (aka Adam Parker Goldberg)-level hyped.  😊
