It can be tough to get teachers to use new tools, but with the right support you can make it happen. Transitioning from paper and pen to digital resources can be difficult. When we went from mimeograph machines to copiers, teachers didn't mind that they could stop cranking that barrel to make funky, blue inked copies.

RingCentral adds communications capabilities to your already favorite applications.
It's pretty much a statement of fact at this point that using a cloud phone service over a legacy, on-premise PBX solution is a better solution, both for the features offered and for the price they come at.

While many professionals and students tend to stick to what's familiar when designing presentations, the status quo isn't always the best choice. Powerpoint has an enormous user base yet this is not indicative of its quality.
