Community Building Through Office 365
Participate and share : Poster
We have learned how to involve the local community with what is going on in the school that serves their area. By using tools like PowerPoint Live, Sway, Microsoft Translator, Flipgrid and Minecraft, our school has developed a deeper connection to the parents and local businesses, which has helped strengthen the school.

Our goal for the presentation is for the attendees to leave with an arsenal of tools that they can use to help grow their interactions with the community they live in. We will spend time getting educators into the programs, where they can find what they need to access each tool and how you can reach the larger community.
