Tips and tricks for cutting edge educators

A glimpe of the future?

A fun place for future gazing educators to visit is the within the Office Labs site, at the Microsoft Concept Tests website.  This is where you can get a glimpse into products that Microsoft are experimenting with.  Microsoft make the new, experimental concept software available for you to download and try here.  It’s also your chance to comment on what software you want to see Microsoft continue to develop.

For powerful videos that offer a glimpse of how we might learn, work, live and play in the future, (perfect as an opener to a presentation or staff meeting), check out the envisioning section

My favourite (once I was able to ignore the fact that the first scene shows learners in rows facing a board) is the Productivity Visioning clip.
