How He's Using His Gifts | Akilah S. Richards
"We explore…gifted students, twice exceptional students, educators who shift from traditional to self-directed education, civic connections, the truth about college, and giving black and brown children more access.

Anthony Galloway wasn’t willing to be another cog in the system.

He’s a smart, twenty-something year old African-American man who chose to go into the field of education. He came up through the system, and learned how to excel in it. He also knew that he wanted to be part of the change in public education that allowed children of color access to the same resources and opportunities as children in white schools or private ones.

Anthony co-founded an Agile Learning Center, now facilitated by both him and long-time educator, Julia Cordero. I think you’re gonna find this discussion interesting because Anthony’s an educator who saw the school system for what it was and is, and started his own school to create something better."

Outlook wants to nudge you into better behavior at work
Outlook wants to nudge you into better behavior at work https://ift.tt/2LdpLcD Prospective https://ift.tt/2NJgTNH July 12, 2018 at 08:20PM

Microsoft compares its MyAnalytics service—part of Office 365–to a fitness tracker for work. The tool uses AI and data collected by the Microsoft Graph to provide a dashboard with stats such as how much time you spend dealing with email. But just as with a fitness tracker, the fact that the stats are available doesn’t mean you’ll look at them or know what to do with them.

With new features coming this summer, the company is trying to take the work out of understanding your work by rolling MyAnalytics-powered “nudges” into its Outlook email program. “Let’s say we get an email from a coworker inviting us to a meeting next week,” product marketing manager Peter Bergen told me. “MyAnalytics recognizes that we have a lot of meetings on our calendar and the amount of time we have left for focused work is shrinking. And pretty quickly it will say, ‘Hey, make sure to set aside some time for focused work.’ Just like a friendly suggestion. It’s not a mandate or anything.”

In another example, MyAnalytics will notice if your coworkers are responding to your email outside of normal business hours and suggest that you be clear about whether you’re making an urgent request. And a third will remind you of to-do items associated with an email contact so you remember to check them off rather than let them linger.

Integrating this sort of would-be helpfulness into software without it being an irritant isn’t a cakewalk: Just ask Office 97’s Clippy, who will be notorious forever for bursting in on your Word sessions and excitedly telling you that he’d noticed you were writing a letter. In Outlook, these new nudges will sit in subdued-looking grey boxes and won’t go out of their way to get in your face—and yes, you’ll be able to turn them off altogether.

Microsoft Teams gets a free version – TechCrunch
Microsoft Teams gets a free version

Microsoft opened up the news floodgates this morning, in the kick off to its annual Inspire event in Paris. One of the more compelling announcements of the bunch is the addition of a free version of Teams.

The Slack competitor has been kicking around in some form or other since late-2016, but the $60 a year fee has likely made it a bit of a nonstarter for smaller businesses. After all, it’s Slack’s free tier that helped the work chat app gain so much traction so quickly. A free version makes a lot of sense for Microsoft.

Signing users up for Teams is way to get more feet into the door of its application ecosystem, which was once ubiquitous in offices. Once they’ve download teams, workplaces will be hooked into the Microsoft 365 suite.

The free tier actually brings a fair bit of the app to up to 300 people per workplace. Here’s the full rundown of features per Microsoft,

Unlimited chat messages and search.

Built-in audio and video calling for individuals, groups, and full team meetups.

10 GB of team file storage plus additional 2 GB per person for personal storage.

Integrated, real-time content creation with Office Online apps, including built-in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote.

Unlimited app integrations with 140+ business apps to choose from—including Adobe, Evernote, and Trello.

Ability to communicate and collaborate with anyone inside or outside your organization, backed by Microsoft’s secure, global infrastructure.

The company’s done a good job hooking in enterprise customers, but as it notes, SMBs constitute 90+ percent of businesses globally, so that’s a whole lot more devices to tap into. The free tier is available in 40 languages starting today.

Microsoft just turned your conference-room whiteboard into an app
Microsoft just turned your conference-room whiteboard into an app https://ift.tt/2LdpJ4v Prospective https://ift.tt/2NJgScB July 12, 2018 at 08:20PM

Last December, Microsoft introduced a preview version of Whiteboard, a Windows 10 app that’s exactly what it sounds like: a digital version of the conference-room staple, with the ability for multiple people to scrawl notes and drawings and otherwise hash out ideas in a shared space. The company is now announcing general availability of the Windows app—which looks like a good way for pen-enabled PC tablets such as the Surface Pro to show their stuff—as well as an iOS version and a preview of a browser-based edition. Android is in the works, as well as integration with Microsoft’s Teams collaborative messaging app.

In a move that seems counter-intuitive, Microsoft is making the Windows version of Whiteboard available to anyone who has a free Microsoft account, but limiting the iOS and web versions to those who pay for an Office 365 plan aimed at businesses. The company says that this restriction exists “at this time,” so perhaps it plans on making the app more freely available at some point.

Microsoft

Microsoft's Whiteboard app, which lets users collaborate on an intelligent canvas through their Windows 10 devices, is now out of preview and available for download. As with a physical whiteboard, Whiteboard lets you draw, erase and attach sticky notes. But unlike a traditional whiteboard, you can also type, add and manipulate images and have ever-expanding amounts of space on which to work. Whiteboard can also recognize and enhance shapes, making it easy to put together a table, for instance.

Microsoft released a preview of Whiteboard late last year and the company says that more than 200,000 users gave feedback that influenced the app's features. Whiteboard works with touch, a pen or a keyboard and users can collaborate on a board from their own devices from different locations. Avatars will make it clear who is doing what on the board and work is automatically saved to the Microsoft cloud.

You can download the Whiteboard App from the Microsoft Store and log in with either a Microsoft or an Office 365 account. For now, while Office 365 users can collaborate within their tenants, they can't work with those in other tenants just yet. Microsoft says the Whiteboard app will be available for iOS devices soon and other devices will have access through its Whiteboard web client preview, which is also on the way.
