TRANSFORMING CLASSROOM TIME

Presented by Microsoft/Morning of January 31, 2020

We believe in empowering the potential within every single student, and now is the time to help unlock the limitless potential of our teachers and schools with better technology for better learning outcomes. Did you know 70 percent of teachers cited time constraints as their biggest hurdle to providing more personalized content to their students? This research revealed technology can help clear away those obstacles by freeing up as much as 30 percent of an educator’s time, so they’re more free to respond to individual and group needs.  With tools, teachers can spend less time on administrative tasks and more time focusing on personalized learning for each student.  Learn about ways to transform your classroom time, and change how your students learn in today’s learning environments.
