OUTLOOK LIVE - STUDENT EMAIL - MICROSOFT LIVE@EDU
This technology provides students with access to Microsoft tools both at school and at home. Students will have access to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote via the web and will have the ability to store documents in the "cloud" using MS Skydrive. Students will be able to work on these applications from any computer with Internet access, regardless of the operating system or platform you have at home. The use of this product will also provide your child with a school email account that is managed by Findlay City Schools. This account will allow for greater collaboration on school projects and expand communications between students and teachers.
