Our first-ever Global Learning Week is officially in the books, and we really enjoyed being able to celebrate the resilience of educators and students. With more than 90 percent of students engaged in remote learning, you’ve managed to connect and build relationships that help students thrive. Educators were able to use this week’s events to trade tips they’ve learned to succeed during this time.

We hope everyone who joined had as much fun as we did and learned something new to take back to students, whether you’ll be working in the classroom, in a virtual learning environment, or some combination of both. The energy, questions, and insights you shared during our week of live events are what make this community special and inspires us daily.

The amazing sessions are free and available on-demand, which means you can make Global Learning Week last all year long. They included:

  • Day 1 | Connect and collaborate with Microsoft Teams

  • Day 2 | Literacy: Engaging every student with Microsoft Learning Tools, Accessibility Checker, and Made by Dyslexia

  • Day 3 | Keeping your students engaged in and out of the classroom with Flipgrid and BBC

  • Day 4 | Building and cultivating problem solving, critical thinking, and creativity with Minecraft: Education Edition, Hacking STEM, and MakeCode

  • Day 5 | Building meaningful relationships inside and outside the walls of the classroom with Minecraft: Education Edition, Flipgrid, and Microsoft Teams
