  • Blog Post: Exclusive Interview with Rebecca Rickwood, Microsoft Excel 2007 World Champion!

    Being able to see how Microsoft solutions and products can actually make an impact in either the classroom, a group of people or in this instance an individual is the part of my role that I love the most as I can see how young people use it and use it to develop their own skills.

  • Blog Post: Using SharePoint and Office 2010 to analyse student data - at Marsh Academy

    Every now and again, I ask Gerald Haigh to write up the stories of some of the schools that we work closely with.

  • Blog Post: Start the term with new Office templates for teachers

    Am I the only one who gets bored with a document format after a few months, and then wants a completely different design? That PowerPoint that looked so smart last year looks a bit clichéd this term. A document which looked professional when you first published it, doesn’t look quite so good when it...
  • Blog Post: New Microsoft Office Education Add-Ins - with the correct download link

    Sorry, when I originally posted this blog post, it had the wrong URL for the downloads. I've now corrected the original, and here it is again, with the correct URLs.

  • Blog Post: What’s new in the Office 2010 applications

    I’ve indexed all of the different product guides for the new Office 2010 applications. There are two separate documents for most of the products – the Overview version is a short two-page summary, and then there’s a detailed Product Guide which goes into much more detail. The Overview document is...

    After over 7,500,000 downloads of the beta version of Office 2010, there’s a good chance that somebody in your school will have been running the new version of Office for a while. And they may be able to summarise the key things that are new in each of the Office applications. But just in case they can...
  • Blog Post: What’s new in Word 2010 for teachers

    It’s starting to seem like a soap opera series. I kicked off with the “ What’s new in PowerPoint 2010 for teachers ” video on Tuesday, and then Ben Nunney contributed “ OneNote 2010 for teachers and students ”. Now, for Word 2010, it’s Mark A’Bear’s turn ( those of you who know some of the team will...
  • Blog Post: OneNote 2010 for teachers and students

    As I said yesterday, I’ve roped in a few colleagues to record short demos of the Office 2010 programmes. Ben Nunney pulled out OneNote 2010 from the random draw, and he immediately set off into a curriculum-led world of research and physics. Given that Ben’s an ex-secondary school teacher, I had no doubt...

  • Blog Post: Ribbon Hero – combining games and learning

    It seems that one of the trendy topics discussed at education conferences these days is the combination of gaming and learning. Most of the time, it’s discussed in the context of the classroom or of students, but I’ve just learnt that we’ve now applied it to product training, in one of our experimental...
  • Blog Post: Planning for BETT 2010

    BETT is the big event in the education ICT calendar, not just for you but for us as well.
