In addition to this, Microsoft is now offering many of its resources for free for education. Within that list of resources you will find some of some our old favourites such as Windows Movie Maker and Windows Photo Gallery but you will also find a few hidden gems such as Photosynth (create 3D slideshows from photographs) and Worldwide Telescope (take a detailed 3D tours of the night sky right from your classroom). There are also a few noteworthy offerings for those of you thinking about teaching Computing / Computer Science next year. These include Small Basic (free and easy to use programming environment), Kodu (visual programming environment using Microsoft’s Xbox 360) and TouchDevelop (a free online tool for creating Windows 8 apps).
