Education HeaderMicrosoft/ UTB event
PB Tech is partnering with Using Technology Better and Microsoft to bring you an awesome online PD opportunity - and the great thing about this event is that it’s for BOTH teachers AND students!
The events will take place over five weeks. After the introductory session you’ll have the opportunity to experience two new Microsoft tools each week.
This event is not just about learning new skills - you’re going to be challenged to put these skills into action.
Using the United Nations 17 Sustainable Goals, you and your students will create an outcome, relevant to your own school's context, to showcase your talents in the final week.
The content of the webinars is designed to give teachers and students the opportunity to:
• Get hands on exploring some of Microsoft’s creativity tools
• Understand how to create outcomes related to a context while using these tools
• Develop computational thinking skills with Microsoft’s creativity tools
• Design and create digital outcomes with Microsoft’s creativity tools
Who is this for?
Open to teachers (especially e-learning leaders) and their students of any year/grade level and any subject area. Students must be accompanied by at least one teacher for every 10 students attending
