The Official Microsoft Blog: Microsoft Offers Free Guides to a 21st-Century Education

Some educational resources from Microsoft

To help teachers engage students in a variety of subject areas – from art to music to science – Microsoft is providing free software and online tools,* step-by-step instructions, videos, and teacher guides.  Beyond learning about access to free tools, the teacher guides also will help educators get the most out of the software they use every day.

We offer a number of tools and software that make it quick and easy to engage students and create interactive lesson plans using technology that teachers and students are already familiar with. Why not introduce a new subject with a 3D viewing experience using Photosynth, or take a virtual celestial tour with WorldWide Telescope? Or showcase your students’ musical talents with Songsmith?  Or have students create a digital story with Windows Live Movie Maker using our new e-book as a guide?
