BETT 2015: Microsoft Showcase Classroom Schedule


Earlier today we published the BETT 2015 schedule for the Theatre section of the Microsoft stand, but that's not the only live presentation aspect you can expect from us over the next few days. We also have a broad range of sessions taking place in the Showcase Classroom corner of stand D270, which will cover a variety of tutorials based around certain products, apps or skills that can be utilised as part of a pedagogy assisted and enhanced by technology.

Again, as with our speakers in the Theatre, we think there’s something for everyone in the Showcase Classroom, and given our release of new technologies for education such as Sway, Office Mix and the OneNote Class Notebook Creator there are a host of new ways that you can plan, deliver content inside – and outside – the classroom, as well as interact and engage with student and other members of staff. We’ve put together the schedule for the Showcase Classroom with this in mind, and hope that you’re able to leave a session having experienced something new or been inspired to give these products a go are part of the education experience you are involved with.

If you have any questions while you are around our stand, please feel free to speak to anyone wearing a Microsoft shirt. We look forward to talking with you!
