Microsoft Australia Schools Roadshow – May 2011 – Building skills for tomorrow


Next month we're running a series of roadshow events for school Principals, IT managers and Curriculum leaders. We're aiming to cover the country, with events in Adelaide, Brisbane, Hobart, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney, from 10th May to the 2nd June.

There are three separate streams to the day, with a breakfast session for Principals (from 7:15 to 9:00 am), a full-morning session for Curriculum Leads from 9:30am to 1pm; and IT Managers get the full works, from 9:00am to 3:00pm.

The day will have a mix of deep sessions on key issues, customer case studies, and product showcases - including some of the latest whizzy products that are relevant to education - cool laptops and tablets, unified communications and video conferencing, and the Kinect for XBox 360. With speakers including Principals, Innovative Teacher Award winners, and other school staff, the day will provide a good insight into life in schools today, and the issues affecting them.

You can find out more about the events - and register to attend - here. If you're working at a Microsoft education partner, I'd encourage you to register and join the audience - think of it as a training event - hearing about some of the customer success stories that will help you in your work, as well as get up to speed on the ways our education team talk about our products and services.
