Microsoft Office 365

From Computer to Cloud Part 1

July Training Sessions at PDC - There's Still Time to Register!

Powerful Classroom Learning Tools for Effective Communication and Collaboration

Office 365 provides access to familiar Office tools virtually anywhere – including email (new teachers and high school students), shared team sites, online document editing and storage, instant messaging, and video conferencing for faculty, and staff.

In this training, educators will learn how Skype for Business provides a media for meeting virtually: for parent conferences, for team or student meetings, or to just touch base with colleagues. They will also learn strategies for staying organized, sharing files easily, and using OneDrive’s Office Web Apps.

This six-hour Academy allows educator participants to take a deep dive into cloud-based tools for the classroom, with a special focus on topics such as file storage, collaboration and communication using Office 365. It will also give educators the opportunity to apply their learning towards the end of each part of the session – reflecting on the topics covered, as well as strategizing on how they can be put to the best use in the classroom or with other educators.

The session will culminate with educators feeling comfortable and knowledgeable about how they can bring cloud-based tools into classrooms in a way that truly enables students and educators to collaborate, communicate, and store and share documents and files.
