The Microsoft Partners in Learning Network has been re-launched and is well worth visiting to access the Microsoft Learning Suite tools and lesson plans; to get support from tutorials and online professional development and to connect with other teachers to share resources and to discuss hot topics. The Partners in Learning Network is also the place where teachers who are entering the 2013 South Africa and Lesotho Microsoft Partners in Learning Forum will need to go to upload their Learning Activities.

To join the Partners in Learning Network, go to www.pil-network.com
Once you are there you can register using your Windows Live ID, Office 365, Facebook, Yahoo, or Gmail account. If you don’t have any of these, you can create a Windows Live ID.
The homepage gives a sense of what is available. See what new tutorials there are, join a popular discussion, stay connected, see what the focused teacher has been up to or access the free tools.
It is definitely worth completing your profile so that others can find you and see what common interests you share. This may lead to a collaborative project or other teachers finding you to discuss one of your resources.
You can join community discussions that interest you – or you can start your own discussion on a new topic.
So, let me encourage you to please join and take a good look around; and stay in touch with new developments on the Partners in Learning Network
