I think the network technicians are installing MS Office 2007 on all district computers as of now. So next time you log on to the network you may see a new version of Office.
Office 2007’s first impression can be disconcerting. Microsoft has made a lot of changes to the interface that can be a challenge to figure out. (It took me ten minutes to find where you open a file.)
I will get a 1-page quickie cheat sheet to every school for distribution by August 12, and we will do a workshop in the early fall.
In the meantime, please see this guide (borrowed from the University of Iowa) that does a pretty good job of covering the new features that require explanation.
