With everything I have taken on recently, I’m all for trying new things to help me get it done. That’s why I was so happy to do a post for Microsoft Office 365 Home Premium. With all of its many uses, it keeps this new teacher organized and informed. Disclosure: I participated in the Microsoft Office 365 campaign on behalf of One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own.
Get It Done
You may recall that I have been extremely busy with my new teaching position over the past few weeks. I have taken on lots of new responsibilities and duties in that time frame. However, I’ve been thankful to have Microsoft Office 365 here to help me get it done. In fact, Office is so useful that they have declared November 7th Get It Done Day in an effort to showcase all of the ways it can help you do just that!
Microsoft Office 365
According to a recent study conducted online by Harris Interactive on behalf of Microsoft, more than half of office workers (53%) would be willing to work more hours—and one in five would be willing to take a pay cut—to have more flexibility in where and when they got work done.
Being in education means that my job isn’t over when the bell rings. Rather, I still have hours of planning and grading ahead of me. Plus, not to mention those meetings and tutoring sessions. So, I’m all for being able to work on my lessons away from the classroom. In fact, some of my most vivid student teaching weekend memories are of me working on lesson plans on a Saturday while watching tv with my boyfriend and his family. It’s essential to my own sanity to be able to work on things away from the classroom. That’s why I love Microsoft Office 365. It truly allows me to “Get It Done” whenever and wherever I want.
Microsoft Office 365 Home Premium allows this new teacher to get it done in a variety of ways. I can save my documents in the SkyDrive so that I can look at them from anywhere. That helps me lug around less stuff. I also love jotting down quick lesson ideas in OneNote (which is an app on my iPad and phone).
Microsoft is declaring November 7th Get It Done day to showcase people accomplishing things and how Microsoft can help you do more. To that end, they are also hosting a special contest where you can enter to win a trip of a lifetime. You could be headed to NYC in February, Utah in January, or even Austin in March! All of those cities certainly have lots of things happening and can inspire you to get more done.
So, would YOU consider working more hours or taking a pay cut to have more flexibility in how you get it done?
