We're running a series of Microsoft-hosted events for schools in the next few weeks, and the invite is open to teachers and IT managers to come along to any of them in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.
The events are morning workshops, followed by lunch and an opportunity to chat with other schools - and a chance to see some of the latest Windows 8 touch devices.
The agenda starts off at 10AM with a combined session for both teachers and IT Managers, and then splits into individual sessions for each group:
