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.
Leading a revolution in learning through the use of mobile devices is not only the greatest challenge of our generation; it is also our greatest opportunity.
The right technology in the hands of teachers, with access to the best solutions and pedagogical training will create a force that truly transforms education across the UK.
The Windows platform has been at the heart of information technology in schools and businesses for almost 40 years and is now well positioned to support the use of mobile devices in all sectors.
It is for this reason that we would like to invite school leaders and technologically innovative teachers from state and independent schools across England, Scotland and Wales to an immersive hands-on session with the Tablet Academy in order for them to acquire a full appreciation of what the Windows 8 Tablet platform has to offer in an educational setting.
Delegates can choose to attend:
Morning event (9.00 -12.00)
Afternoon event (13.00 -16.00).
Some venues will be offering tour delegates free entry or actvities either side of the times outlined above. Further details will be provided on your tickets.
Price: £105.00 (+VAT)
including 8" Windows 8 Pro Tablet.
No boring conference centres or hotels for these sessions. These will be taking place in some of the greatest tourist attractions in the UK. A castle, a Zoo, a Palace and the Eden project are just some of the great venues.
