Helping prepare students with their studies and future employment

(5 February 2021)

We’re delighted to announce that the M365 My Digital Skills site for students is now available. M365 tools are there to help students improve their digital skills using Microsoft 365 in their studies, having fun, and supporting them for future employability. Using the familiar applications, students can build collaborative classrooms, connect in professional learning communities, and connect with societies and clubs by creating their own Microsoft Teams sites and much more. 

In a world being transformed by technology, we want to help students be familiar and prepared for the future with a suite of M365 digital skills.  To become more globally competitive in today’s modern workplace, they can take a work readiness assessment in the Career Readiness zone, learn more and then confirm their understanding with a quiz. 

Students can also build collaborative classrooms, connect in professional learning communities, and connect with societies and clubs when they create their own Microsoft Teams sites.  

Also, students never have to worry about whether they have saved a document or where they have saved it, it’s in the cloud and this also gives them the ability to share and work collaboratively. From whichever application they are working in, they can share their work with a click of a button. No longer do they have to email a document back and forth with version one, version two, the definitive final version, etc. M365 allows people to work jointly on the same document, at the same time, from anywhere!  

We all need to learn and share in a way that we are comfortable with. Students can discover how everyone can achieve more with the built-in accessibility features and tools in Microsoft technologies, they will have the ability to change information into a format that they see as meeting their needs. 

Please share this information with your students, and encourage them to check out the M365 My Digital Skills to improve their digital skills for their studies, social lives or future employment.
