Microsoft Teams with Parade Magazine to Discuss Tech in the Classroom
In partnership with Parade Magazine, Microsoft is hosting a series of events in Salt Lake City, St. Louis and Boston featuring panel conversations focused on the topic of technology in the classroom. The panel discussion, which is moderated by Parade Editor-In -Chief Maggie Murphy, focuses on building better classrooms, ways technology is helping to transform the learning environment and tools and resources to help teachers and parents ensure their children are using technology in a beneficial manner.
A variety of panelists including Microsoft experts, teachers and education bloggers discussed different tools that are currently being implemented inside the classroom. One of those tools included Bing in the Classroom, which offers schools in the U.S. an ad-free, safer, and more private search experience on their school’s network. Additionally, the discussion delved into the need for youth to have access to tech in their classroom and within their community, and how Microsoft is helping to close the skills gap and ensure safe learning.
Here is a look of the event at a recent stop at the St. Louis Microsoft retail store where local educators and experts shared thoughts on the role technology plays in the classroom.
