UK schools join Microsoft programme that uses tech to help students learn
Schools and colleges from across the UK have been added to Microsoft’s showcase teaching programme, which uses technology to help students learn.
Four new colleges and 13 new schools will be supported by the company to use tools such as Surface and Office to improve accessibility, collaboration and communication, and increase digital skills in classrooms.
There are already 12 colleges and 24 schools from the UK enrolled in the Microsoft Showcase Schools Program.
Chris Rothwell, Director of Education at Microsoft UK, said: “More schools and colleges are unlocking the benefits that come with using technology in the classroom. Programs such as Teams can make learning more accessible and collaborative, as well as give students key skills they will need in the workplace. We are looking forward to supporting more schools and seeing students benefit from the Microsoft Showcase Schools Program.”
