Alan Richards, who is IT manager at West Hatch High School in Essex, was the first school in the europe to fully deploy the released version of Windows 7 in widespread use. And he talked about his experiences in the Windows 7 early adopter case study paper that Gerald Haigh wrote for us.
Now Alan’s offered to share some of his experiences, by running a workshop at his school – just in time for those who are thinking about deploying Windows 7 this summer.
Alan emailed me on 9th June to say that this event is now full - sorry
Here’s more details of his event:
Windows 7 is a year old this summer and many people will be getting ready to install it across their PC network. As the first School in Europe to fully deploy Windows 7, West Hatch High School is running an event on the 8th July designed to help you with your planning for deployment and give you some insights into how two schools deployed it successfully.
By the end of the day you should have a better understanding of the best way to go about deploying Windows 7, using both Microsoft deployment tools and 3rd party deployment tools. The day is specifically aimed at schools and so two of the people who are giving their time for the event are from Schools with a long history of the innovative use of ICT in education.
