Free Event: Windows 8 Tablets in the classroom

A free event for school leaders focussed on the use of Windows 8 Tablets in the classroom.

imageMany schools are unaware of the benefits Windows 8 Tablets bring to teaching and learning, or how they compare to iPads in the classroom. This event is focussed on providing teachers with hands-on experiences of using Windows 8 tablets focussing on how devices can be used in lessons.

Delivered by the Tablet Academy who provide independent teacher training for tablets in education, and supported by Microsoft and Toshiba we are confident this event will help you make an informed decision about tablets in your school.

Choose from the following dates: 19th June 2014, Reading, RG6 1WG or 23rd June 2014, June SW1E 5JL.
