For those schools currently on live@edu or Office 365 for education there will be an update over the next year allowing you to take advantage of the next wave of Microsoft Office products. Alex Pearce and Alan Richards, who are both Microsoft SharePoint MVPs (Most Valuable Professionals) will give you live demonstrations of Office 365 for education including Lync with its video conferencing capabilities. Also Office Web Apps and how documents, spreadsheets and presentations can be changed in the browser without any need for Office being installed on your computers (yes this means it works on any device with a browser).  Alex and Alan will also take a look at the new features of SharePoint 2013 and show you how some of these can be used in the classroom to help with group work, collaboration and social networking.

Plus information about the new Office with the new features including integration with Skype, SkyDrive and increased features with Office 365 for education.

And the best bit about the presentation is that when you walk away from the session you will be able to get it all completely for free (for A1 and A2 plans) by signing up for Office 365 for education.
