Microsoft Expert Educator

Ahead of the new academic year starting in September, we're pleased to be back with more news and resources from the MIE Minute Newsletter.

As always, we have the three shareable items that our MIE Experts will be circulating throughout their networks, and in addition to this we are excited to share details of the upcoming EduCast series. But first, we have this edition's question…

So please take to your social media accounts and tell the world what you plan to change within your teaching environment or activities this year.
