Microsoft’s Partners in Learning Network is a global community of educators dedicated to improving student learning worldwide. It is great place to look for free tools and software; tutorials on how to use technology; and tried and tested lesson plans submitted by teachers from around the world. Teachers who are part of this community use it to find colleagues in other countries for collaborative projects; as a place to read about and contribute to hot educational topics; and as a source of free online professional development. If you already have Facebook, Microsoft, Yahoo, Office 365 or Gmail account joining the Partners in Learning Network takes just minutes – so sign up now if you are not already a member.
For a limited time during Term 2 SchoolNet SA is offering demonstrations to schools on how to use the Partners in Learning Network; what resources are available and how to incorporate these in lessons. If you would like a free hour long professional development session for your staff members on the Partners in Learning Network write to firstname.lastname@example.org
