Microsoft Conference Breakout Sessions: Meeting Room 2 

During the conference, Microsoft will deliver several sessions focused on some of the biggest trends in EdTech. So, whether you’re a teacher, school or system leader, or IT administrator, we’ve got plenty for you.

And whether or not you’re working in an Office 365 school, as an educator, you can still sign up for Office 365 and other Microsoft tools for free! What’s more, you can run those on a range of devices. Be sure to check out informational sessions from ed tech influencers Leslie Fisher and Holly Clark, who will be leading several sessions showing you how to make all that happen.
