What's New?

Log in to your Office 365 account though https://portal.office.com/Home and notice some cool new Microsoft applications! You can now work with Word, Excel and Powerpoint Online, and you can use the share features to work on documents with other teachers simultaneously. This should make collaboration much easier. Microsoft 365 training will be offered throughout the year, but feel free to ask for training at your convenience.

Cool Tool for Student Collaboration - SWAY!

Currently, FBISD students can access SWAY through their Office 365 portal. Sway is a presentation design software, but a cool feature is that students can share an edit link and work together on the same SWAY. Then they can submit one finished link to teacher. Please contact me if you would like to use Sway with your students. I will teach them how to use the product, and I will connect it with your content.
