Hello fellow Moms and Dads! It’s almost time for our kids to go back to school. So, I want to share some must-have additions for your School Supply List 2014-2015.
Microsoft is enabling students success in the 2014-15 school year with Student Advantage. Student Advantage is Office 365 for Students. Students can install all of the popular Office apps that they need not only for their creative work in school, but also for the hottest, high-growth careers. Getting Student Advantage is free if your child’s school district has an Microsoft Office 365/Professional Plus for faculty and staff.
Students can install and use all of the Microsoft Office tools on up-to-five personal devices. That’s Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, Excel, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, Access, Lync and so much more. These are not watered down, lite editions. These are not simple document readers. These are the real deal Office apps that students need proficiency to be college and career-ready. Also, if your students need assistive technologies, Microsoft Office provides the most robust support for learners with special needs.
I encourage you to check back in with me over the next few posts. We’re going to take a fun look at school supply list from across America and remix them with technology for learning. Your student’s school supply list may be among them, so it will be a lot of fun.
