Microsoft Education: Every Student Has a Voice

Every student is an individual bringing their own unique passions, insights, and talents to the world. When these individuals work together, the world’s problems get solved, fascinating discoveries get made, and everyone’s lives get that much better. 

This individuality also means that each student has their own unique learning challenges and needs. In order help all students thrive and bring about the future we envision, we cannot educate them through a one-size-fits-all approach. 

At Iron Neo, we believe in putting tools in the hands of educators to support all kinds of learning needs and help all students reach their potential.

Microsoft Education: Every Student Has a Voice

As individuals, students carry within them a variety of interests and potential for multiple talents. If we encourage our students to pursue their passions, shouldn’t we encourage them to pursue all of them?

The tools provided through Microsoft Education can support students as they pursue a variety of interests from engineering to poetry.

At Iron Neo, we want to support our students becoming both anything and everything they want. Because why shouldn’t the next great work of literature come from a scientist?

The Total Economic Impact of Microsoft 365 Education: Improving student learning while reducing cost and effort

It is every school district’s goal to provide better educational experiences for their students. That’s exactly why these five school districts decided to move to Microsoft 365. Did they achieve it? You bet, and in more ways than one.

Teachers were able to spend less time on administrative tasks and more time focused on student needs and improving curriculums. Districts were able to save on IT costs and affordably put more devices in students’ hands, moving toward their goal of one-to-one student-to-device ratios. Most importantly, students became more engaged with their studies.

Check out the full results of the study and contact us to learn more about what they could mean for your district.

More time for teachers. More savings for the district. More opportunities for students.

No teacher went into the profession to spend time in front of a computer! People became teachers to share knowledge and have a positive impact on students’ lives. Microsoft can help them achieve this by giving valuable time back.

With the efficiencies provided through Microsoft 365 tools, teachers can refocus their time and effort toward more impactful things such as one-on-one time with students, expanding their curriculum to be more inclusive, and pursuing new professional development opportunities. The result is better learning outcomes for students and greater job satisfaction for teachers.

Karrick Learns to Read with Immersive Reader

Reading is a fundamental skill required for success in school and life. It stretches far beyond the English classroom and into every single subject a student will encounter. As a cornerstone of communication, reading and writing are how we humans have shared ideas for thousands of years. Everyone should have access to that information, and technology has the potential to revolutionize reading for those who have characteristically been overlooked. 

Karrick Johnson struggled more than other kids his age when learning to read, leading to the discovery by his parents that he was dyslexic. He was self-conscious and refused to voluntarily read in class, and this may have continued if not for the suggestion of a fellow classmate. This classmate led Karrick to discover Immersive Reader, a tool designed to help people like him better focus and read fluently. With this newfound tool, Karrick’s confidence and love for reading has flourished.  

At Iron Neo, we are committed to the idea that technology can open the door of learning to everyone. Contact us to learn more about the ways in which technology can help your underserved students.
