A message from Microsoft:
Over the past several months we have been listening to our audiences, understanding what they needed from Microsoft to be successful, and driving a cross company effort to provide a one stop hub for Microsoft in Education. This new digital destination provides enhanced collaboration and community for educators, new content and resources for students and leaders, updated product and solutions pages and enhanced navigation that bring together the best of Microsoft in education and today, this digital destination is now LIVE for our audiences to enjoy!
Have you seen Microsoft's new community site for educators. It serves as the top centralized resource and deep engagement tool for teducators and consolidates formerly separate online entities - Microsoft Educator Network, Skype in the Classroom, MIE Trainer Portal - into a single destination discoverable under the http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/education site. This will help us offer everything educators and their students need and can discover from Microsoft. The site provides educators with rich profiling, making it even easier to access a global network of educators and best practices, an opportunity to earn merit badges and be recognized for achievements, and then share these achievements, lesson plans and other content via social channels with the benefit of seamless integration with Facebook, Twitter and Skype. View this video below to see highlights of the digital experience for educators.
