What we're about

The purpose of our group is to educate technology professionals about Office 365, SharePoint, and related collaboration & cloud technologies. Our meetings cover all aspects of these technologies including content geared for power users, developers, IT pros, administrators, project managers, and business analysts.

Our patrons range from people that are brand new to Office 365 and SharePoint to seasoned technology veterans and Microsoft MVPs. After the Meetup, we continue the excitement and tech passion at an O365OverDrive and SharePint get-together.

Did you know that there is a Microsoft Teams dedicated to Education? Microsoft Teams is free in higher Education giving universities, colleges and K-12 schools a single hub to collaborate real-time on documents, chat, meet online, and integrate with educational apps. Microsoft Teams can help educators collaborate effectively in real-time, cut down on emails, share teaching resources, and increase student engagement in their courses. It provides students a single hub to collaborate in their course, manage their on-campus jobs, and create community as part of student life. Researchers can use Teams to research with colleagues outside of your institution with enterprise-grade security. In this session, we cover the different use cases why you can use Microsoft Teams for Education and present how Teams goes about being the hub for schoolwork. We discuss the different Team templates, like Classroom, PLC, Staff collaboration, and so much more. If you want to see how Teams support the education efforts of our next generation, then this session is for you. ## Jethro Seghers is the Senior Customer PM for Microsoft Teams for Education at Microsoft.
