If you follow this blog, you are probably aware of Microsoft Copilot, an AI tool available to all staff. In today’s post, I would like to share Magic School, a great tool specifically designed to help teachers get started with generative AI. What I like about Magic School is the variety of use cases it provides to support teacher planning and how it guides us through writing good prompts.
