Towards the end of last year we launched the Microsoft Showcase Classroom Regional Roadshow, which saw us teaming up with Tablet Academy to deliver 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 and tutorials. We recently recreated this environment as part of the Microsoft stand at the BETT show, and judging by the number of people who took part on one of the devices provided, or watched, we think these sessions were rather popular!
As we press on into 2015, there are still plenty of pins in the map where the Regional Roadshow will be taking this interactive learning experience around the UK. If weren’t able to attend any of the sessions at BETT, or if you in fact did attend and are now hungry for more(!), then we still have spaces available for the following events:
09.02.15 – Machynlleth
09.03.15 – Liverpool
29.04.15 – Newcastle
06.05.15 – Bristol
11.05.15 – Aberdeen
13.05.15 – Edinburgh
14.05.15 – Glasgow
18.05.15 – Leicester
08.06.15 – London (held @ Microsoft London HQ)
15.06.15 – Cornwall
22.06.15 – Norwich
24.06.15 – Reading (held @ Microsoft UK HQ)
08.07.15 – Blackpool
Each event gives you the choice of a morning (9am-12pm) or an afternoon (1pm-4pm) session, during which time school leaders and technologically innovative teachers from state and independent schools across England, Scotland and Wales can experience 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 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.
