The latest edition of the MIEE Minute Newsletter has gone out to our Expert Educators all over the world, and we are once again very pleased to be able to share this some of this content with out wider education audience.
Those of you who read this blog regularly may well be familiar with the MIE Minute and will have read excerpts from this bi-weekly newsletter before. You might also be aware that occasionally on this blog we share the ‘Question of the Week’. In some instances question relates to specific activities that the MIEEs have undertaken as part of their membership of the Expert Educator programme, and in other weeks it is a more open question about their experiences within education or using technology.
Today we’re able to pose the question to the wider teacher community, and we’d love to hear your thoughts. It’s all about OneNote, and we’re asking teachers all over the world to complete the following sentence:
“I <3 #OneNote because ______.”
Tweet out your reasons for loving OneNote, and if you have space in your tweet you can mention @microsofteduk to make sure that we see your messages!
Here are the three main items we’d like to share from the latest edition of the MIE Minute:

We’ve designed the upgrade to be easy and compatible with the hardware and software you already use with your docs and files preserved.
We’ve recently published a few posts on this blog around this topic, so for a teacher’s view of the latest generation of Windows we’d recommend reading Kevin Sait’s thoughts on Windows 10 in education.
