Huge thanks to Heather Aird, a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert (MIE Expert) from Scotland, who in June 2023, created an initial series of vibrant and user-friendly “Quick Guides” for Microsoft Education products. 

Heather’s Quick Guides make learning easy and simple by showing information in a clear and concise way. Each guide has step-by-step instructions, with helpful screenshots and diagrams, so that any teacher can use the tools without any hassle.
