Together with WE, Microsoft is providing students with tools and resources to bring the power of technology into the classroom. By incorporating technology into their service-learning actions with WE Schools Tech for Good programming, students can take their actions even further and amplify their voices globally. Along the way, they’ll build valuable 21st century digital skills to prepare them for the future. From creating interactive maps of community resources to combat food insecurity, to creating online resource centers and virtual issues boards to raise awareness, the possibilities are endless.
