The past year has brought uncertainty to educators as learning environments have evolved, making it more important than ever for them to feel comfortable and confident using technology to facilitate remote and hybrid learning. Microsoft offers a variety of free training and professional development resources that help educators teach in any environment. These resources can help educators gain the technical proficiency they need to focus on what they do best: connecting with students.
Just over a year ago, COVID-19 disrupted the educational journeys of 1.6 billion students around the globe and changed how we live, work, socialize, and learn. Today the world continues to navigate the economic, public health, and humanitarian challenges the pandemic caused.
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.
We’re excited to announce the completion of a new paper, “Flattening the multimodal learning curve: A faculty playbook,” which aims to equip faculty with effective strategies, practices, and tools to navigate the pedagogical paradigm shift accelerated by COVID-19.
Microsoft E2 | Education Exchange is quickly approaching—March 22-24, 2021! The virtual event offers an unparalleled opportunity to learn together and celebrate the achievements of extraordinary changemakers—both leaders and educators—who are working to ensure students can achieve more in their lives today and in the future.
As education continues to evolve, so does the technology used to enable digital classrooms. To build confidence in remote and hybrid technology, Microsoft Teams offers a variety of free educator resources and professional development. From self-guided training in the Microsoft Educator Center to clickable demos and on-demand resources, teachers, parents, and IT admins can build the skills they need to support their students in any environment.
As digital transformation accelerates due to the pandemic, it’s more important than ever to ensure that students across the globe get access to engaging, relevant, and high-quality computer science learning experiences at school.
Today’s students will become the citizens, advocates, and leaders of tomorrow, and educators have the opportunity to shape the future every day. This February, educators across the country will celebrate and honor the experiences of Black and African American people and their central role in US history. The observance is an opportunity for educators to prioritize anti-racism both in their curricula and classroom environments—throughout Black History Month and beyond.
