Today, more than ever, technology is influencing the way students learn, teachers deliver curricula, and school leaders guide their teams in remote and hybrid environments. The education community has shown incredible resiliency over the last year. Microsoft is here to support you with training and resources to:

  • Build confidence in remote and hybrid teaching
  • Focus on student-centered learning and inclusion
  • Maintain student engagement and well-being
  • Manage affordable devices and tools

Join Microsoft at the Future of Education Technology Conference (FETC) in January and the Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA) convention in February, where we will offer sessions and live demos featuring tips from Microsoft Innovative Educators (MIEs), school leaders, and Microsoft experts. We’re also hosting a virtual booth where you can connect with our team, view content, and more.

Be sure to check out Microsoft sessions hosted by Leslie Fisher, who will share insights about using free Microsoft Education tools to help you in the classroom.

Hear the latest about your favorite Microsoft technologies, including new features in Microsoft Teams, affordable Windows devices, and classroom tools like OneNote, Forms, and Flipgrid, just to name a few.

Below are a few highlights from our session schedule. To view the complete schedules, visit Microsoft@FETC and Microsoft@TCEA. If you registered for either event, the Microsoft sessions will be available on-demand for 30 days following the conclusion of the conference.
