Microsoft Educators Resources

Microsoft has dedicated an extensive amount of time developing not only the tools we use, but also training options for those tools. They are providing a massive collection of articles, walk-throughs, and tutorial videos targeted at educators and students.

This is also available from within the Teams Desktop Application itself by clicking the Help icon in the bottom right and selecting training.

I want to start by introducing you to the Educator Help & Learning website resource. This is an attractive, searchable, and well structured resource dedicated to focusing on how educators can optimize the use of tools like Teams, OneNote, Forms, and other Microsoft tools.

I invite you to explore the above mentioned site, but as Teams will be a vital resource used by educators as we experience digital learning I would like to share with you the Educator Training focused on Microsoft Teams.

Another vital resource that educators should specifically read and understand is a Quick Start Training for Getting started in your class team. This resource provides information for both Educators and Students to help ease the burden of experience in the application.

Select your role of Educator or Student to tailor your experience for this Quick Start.

Microsoft has also been working with students to build resources to assist them in learning to optimize the use of tools available to them. You can locate these resources by scrolling to the bottom of the Educator Help & Learning website resource or by directly visiting the Student Help Center.


The Department of Information Technology at Calvert County Public Schools continuously watches, and researches, valuable resources such as these to help our educators and students have the best experience possible. All the tools provided by I.T. and Instruction are designed to help us in the digital learning age.

These tools and resources are applicable for all educators and students to enhance the educational environment and provide advanced learning opportunities.
