We’re pleased to share the news of updates to the Microsoft Educator Community, based on feedback from you – the users! The site itself has undergone a significant makeover, with a new layout and structure designed to better support educators around the world.
Packed full of fantastic teacher resources such as lesson plans, CPD course, quick tip videos, badges, discussions and the hugely popular Skype in the Classroom virtual fieldtrips, the Microsoft Educator Community is everything a teacher needs to develop, all in one place.
Over on the main Microsoft in Education blog you can read about three ways in which the restructured Microsoft Educator Community can better support educators:
1. A more efficient Educator Community – Teachers have enough on their hands, juggling class time, lesson preparation, grading, and a myriad of other time-consuming tasks. The restructured Educator Community was designed to make navigation a breeze and save valuable time.
2. A more personalized Educator Community – We recognize that every educator has unique needs that differ based on geography, subject, age group, and interest. When you access the Educator Community, you want to find content that’s relevant to you, and that’s now easier than ever.
3. A more easily discoverable Educator Community – One of the main pieces of feedback we heard was the desire for more supported, continuous journeys on the site. With that in mind, we’ve made various changes in educator’s browsing experience that support this.
