Microsoft Education

Website Wednesday

I know most of use have gone googly with Google, so today is for all those Microsoft enthusiasts out there. I stumbled across Microsoft Education one day when searching for anything about Skype. I was unaware of how much this website has to offer to students and teachers. 

Did you know that we have access to GAFE(Google Apps for Education) and 0365 Education from Microsoft? 

When you first get to Microsoft Education, log in using your SAISD 0365 Account. 
Username: Password: your Outlook/webmail password

The Educator's tab will open the Microsoft Educator Community. From here you can: 
  • Earn Microsoft Badges and Certificates
  • Find Resources such as webinars and quick tip videos
  • Skype in the Classroom - This is everything you need to start using Skype in the classroom.
  • Find, Create, and Share Lesson Plans
  • Connect to other Microsoft Educators
Here's what students will find under the Student's Tab.
  • Resources such as templates, tutorials, training, and tools for school
  • Career Opportunities including scholarships and internships.
  • AND...

We are fortunate to work in a school district that allows teachers and students to work with the best of both worlds: Google and Microsoft.

  1. I found this website about 3 months ago. I was so excited to see all the great training opportunities on this website. They have renewed my faith in Microsoft.
