    Web 2.0 and Other Educational Resources from Microsoft

    OK, this may not be the definitive index to Microsoft resources for teachers but it’s close. Something for everyone from elementary school English teachers to high school science teachers (check out the world wide telescope) to high school computer science teachers. Lots to choose from.

    Web 2.0 and Other Educational Resources from Microsoft

    1. PhotoSynth - http://livelabs.com/photosynth/

    You can share or relive a vacation destination or explore a distant museum or landmark. With nothing more than a digital camera and some inspiration, you can use Photosynth to transform regular digital photos into a three-dimensional, 360-degree experience. Anybody who sees your synth is put right in your shoes, sharing in your experience, with detail, clarity and scope impossible to achieve in conventional photos or videos.

    2. Worldwide Telescope - http://www.worldwidetelescope.org/Home.aspx

    3. Office Labs – Concepts http://www.officelabs.com/Pages/ConceptTests.aspx

    a. Community Clips

    If there’s a new trick or skill you want to learn in Microsoft Office, but you don’t have the time to take a course, check out Community Clips. It offers a portal through which you can easily browse, view, share, and discuss informal "how-to-use” Office videos from around the world. It also gives you the ability to record your own screens and voice, so you can create your own training videos to share.

    b. SharedView

    Connect with up to 15 people in different locations and get your point across by showing them what's on your screen. Share, review, and update documents with multiple people in real time. A Windows Live ID (Passport, Hotmail, or MSN) is required to start sessions, but not to join sessions. New in version 1.0: we have added a web based join experience to make SharedView even easier.

    4. Live@edu - http://www.microsoft.com/liveatedu

    a. Office Live Workspace

    If the H1N1 flu virus keeps your students away from the classroom, continue the learning online by using Office Live Workspace to:

    · share assignments

    · distribute handouts

    · post presentations

    · enable group collaboration

    Use this free online service to publish and share Microsoft Office Word documents, Office Excel spreadsheets, and PowerPoint presentations. Students can get class information from anywhere they have Internet access.

    b. Skydrive

    With SkyDrive, you can embed public or shared folders on Windows Live Spaces. Everyone can see what’s public, but only people you’ve granted permission can see your shared folders.
