Teachercast Podcast – Office 365 and Microsoft Education in the Classroom

For teachers and students all over the world, Office is so much more than simply the sum of its parts. While many people view the likes of Word, PowerPoint, Outlook and so on in a slightly utilitarian light, when used effectively together, they really can allow anyone to do great things. Oftentimes the best people to learn about products from are peers and other members of your industry who are facing the same challenges, and education is no exception to this way of working. In fact, it’s arguably a more community driven industry than others, so we’re always seeing great content being shared by educators all over world, who want to collectively further the quality and efficacy of education both inside and outside the classroom.
