We are a Microsoft district and substantial time and investment has been made by the district to make the Microsoft suite available to our staff and students. We recommend using Microsoft Office 365 for your classroom.
Microsoft offers TEAMS and OneNote resources which are similar to Google Classroom and Google Docs. Microsoft also has Learning Tools, Immersive Reader, and Text to Speech resources built-in. You don't have to worry about finding the right app or Google extensions to add-on.
Please consider visiting the Educator Center to learn about what Microsoft has to offer our teachers, and to help them develop an engaging, inspiring distance learning classroom environment effectively.
