This back-to-school season, there are more resources than ever for differentiating learning and more tools to facilitate doing so. If you’re a Microsoft educator, many of the tools in your classroom tech toolkit have been updated just in time for the start of the school year.
In the upcoming course “Microsoft Office 365 Tools” (developed collaboratively by Wilson College and Eduspire), available online and taught by MIE Expert and Master Trainer Dianne Krause, participants will explore information sharing and collaboration strategies using a variety of Microsoft resources, as well as interactive learning platforms for formative assessment and personalized learning.
Check out these articles from Microsoft, some of which were written by Dianne:
- OneNote, Class Notebook and Desktop Learning Tools updated for back-to-school season
- New Learning Tools help educators create more inclusive classrooms
- Sway is the Way — Create Memorable Reading Portfolios
- Top 5 back-to-school tools for creation, collaboration and communication

- Project collaboration and communication with Sway
Also, be sure to read what previous course-takers have said about the learning experience in the Microsoft Office course:
“Very thorough course on all the great applications in Microsoft Office 365 with practical application of using them in your subject area.” — C.K. | Cornwall-Lebanon School District
“Gives many real life applications for the classroom.” — M.T. | South Williamsport Area School District
“It was extremely valuable to learn about all of the new tools offered in Microsoft Office. The plethora of information and hands-on experience was priceless.” — C.H. | Lehighton Area School District
We hope that you’ll join us for the Microsoft course, which can be taken for graduate credit or simply as a professional development course, and may also be taken as part of the Wilson College Master of Educational Technology degree program.
Enjoy the rest of your summer and have a great 2017-2018 school year!
