IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE TABLET ACADEMY
For school leaders and technology leaders to experience how
Windows 8 Tablets can help transform the classroom through
hands-on immersive activities delivered by the Tablet Academy.
Every once in a while an innovation is so revolutionary it changes the
world forever. The wheel, the printing press, and the telegraph each led
to an unprecedented change in the way humanity interacted. For
every generation that followed the world was a very dierent place.
Personal computing devices (Tablets and Smartphones) and the
networks they are connected to have combined to become the single
greatest invention humanity has ever experienced.
Leading a revolution in learning through the use of these devices is
not only the greatest challenge of our generation; it is also our greatest
opportunity. With increasingly powerful educational applications and
established use of devices at home by school-aged children the
challenge before school leaders isn’t related to additional advances in
technology but which platform oers the most eective solution in
terms of price and impact on teaching and learning.
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 across all sectors.
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.
It is for this reason that we would like to invite forward thinking school leaders and
innovative teachers from state and independent schools across England, Scotland
and Wales to an immersive hands-on experience in order for them to acquire a full
appreciation of what the Windows 8 Tablet platform has to oer their institution.
Delegates will be presented with a Windows 8 Pro tablet that will be used during
the event and is theirs to keep and explore the opportunities back at school.
