At the beginning of next week, we're running a pair of seminars in Melbourne for schools, to give you a chance to look at Windows 8 and Office 365 Education, as well as chat with Microsoft staff and colleagues from other schools. And there's specific sessions for school leaders, IT managers, and classroom teachers.
For IT Managers and teachers
The sessions for IT managers and teachers start at 10:00AM on Monday 6th May, with a keynote from Travis Smith, and then the seminar splits to a hands-on workshop for teachers, and a deep dive session for IT managers.
The seminar finishes with lunch at 12:30, and a chance to get your hands on the latest Windows 8 devices from OEMs, and plenty of opportunity for catching up with colleagues from other schools.
For school leaders
We're running the leadership session "Leading Contemporary Learning in Schools" from 8AM to 9:30AM on 6th May too. This session is also hosted by Travis Smith, who's been a school leader himself.
He'll be taking a look at some of the key strategic opportunities and issues that schools face with technology adoption. It will include Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) strategies for schools, how to run sustainable 1:1 programmes, and emerging technologies.
