Being involved in your child’s school life doesn’t mean you have to bake the best cupcakes or coach the softball team. In fact, Windows Live can help you be a contributing member of the school community without ever having to step foot in the school cafeteria!
Give it a shot: You’ll just need to have Windows 7, download Windows Live Essentials, and make the cloud work for you. Here are a few cool tools to consider…
Create – You’ll score some extra points for filming your daughter’s soccer team beating their rivals, and editing in some cool theme music using Windows Movie Maker.
Connect – Being a part of a fundraising event committee at your child’s school is tough when everyone’s schedules conflict. But with Windows Live Mesh, collaboration can be done right online using a shared skydrive, or you can set up a chat using Live Messenger.
Share – From sending out photo birthday party invitations to showing off your grade-schooler’s latest karate picture with your network, snail-mail is so old school. See how Windows live Photo Gallery and Windows Live Mail can help you embrace the spirit of sharing.
