Microsoft Celebrates Teachers Making a Difference during Covid-19 with Latest Teams Ad

Creative 189 Add to collection

The campaign from McCann New York highlights how Microsoft supports educators, students and caregivers all while keeping them safe and secure online

Microsoft Celebrates Teachers Making a Difference during Covid-19 with Latest Teams Ad
Microsoft and McCann have partnered to recognise educators and the heroic contributions they are making during the Covid-19 pandemic. Many, leveraging Microsoft Teams, are singing, dancing and using every tool they can to keep students motivated and engaged in challenging circumstances. To celebrate their efforts and say thank you, Microsoft captured real classes taught via Teams, giving an inside look into how educators are going above and beyond to keep kids engaged with their learning. It’s proof that this year, every teacher is teacher of the year.

With Microsoft Teams, Microsoft is supporting educators, students and caregivers, all while keeping them safe and secure online. Additionally, Microsoft is hosting webinars and trainings, sharing resources, and giving schools free access to Microsoft 365 - ensuring educators have everything they need for full classroom collaboration and remote learning through Teams.

“There are so many heroes during this challenging pandemic, but one group who will have a lasting impact on the future are our teachers." said Kathleen Hall, chief brand officer, Microsoft. "We want to do everything we can to help them be productive and effective - and have some fun along the way - via Microsoft Teams. Here’s to our teachers!”

The spot launched in the NFL Sunday Night Football Game on 15th November and will run across Microsoft social channels beginning today.
