While many teachers and students up and down the country will be breathing a sigh of relief as they pause for a period of well earned rest over Easter, many people’s diaries will already be filling up well into the summer term. With this in mind, we’d like to remind school leaders and teachers from all over the UK that the Microsoft Showcase Classroom Regional Roadshow will be gearing up for the final 11 events throughout the next few months.
Resuming in Newcastle on April 29th, the remaining Regional Roadshow events span the length of the land, with shows as far north as Edinburgh, and as far south as Cornwall, before the tour concludes in Blackpool on July 8th.
What is the Microsoft Showcase Classroom Regional Roadshow, and why should I go?
The Microsoft Showcase Classroom Regional Roadshow is a series of events for school leaders and technologically innovative teachers to experience how Windows 8 Tablets can help transform the classroom through hands-on immersive activities delivered by the Tablet Academy. The Roadshow is already in full swing, having already hosted a series of successful events earlier this year and in late 2014:
The cost of attending the a session is £105 per person, and delegates will be issued with an 8" Windows 8.1 Pro tablet that will be used during the event and is theirs to keep and use back in the classroom. If you or a colleague wish to attend any of the events listed above, or indeed any of the events scheduled in 2015, please visit the Tablet Academy page on Eventbrite to book for the Microsoft Showcase Classroom Regional Roadshow.
