She says, "With the advent of using ICT to enhance learning initiatives in South Africa, innovative minds are already wondering how and where to start? With the resources available at your school whether limited or unlimited, as an innovative teacher you could start with the implementation of ICT to enhance teaching and learning. In this webinar I will be taking you through:
1. Microsoft free tools available on Microsoft Educator Network to bring life to teaching and learning.
2. How to access the tool and creatively use them to support teaching and learning
3. What is “Dock to Desktop”? How to enable and disable it. What it lets a teacher or student do. What are the benefits? "
