Announcing new partner apps for Education

Announcing new partner apps for Education.

Microsoft is proud to be a yearlong mission sponsor of the annual ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) Conference and Expo. If you are attending ISTE this year, you may have already been able to visit our booths, exciting talks and Experience Room, all driving our vision of helping empower the students of today to create the world of tomorrow.

We appreciate that student needs and teaching styles have a huge variance, and we would like you to join us in exploring how our partners can help you and your students reach full potential, starting at our Booth #1140. Here you will be able to experience just some of the great apps and solutions from our Education partners (who also joined us live on Facebook to discuss their work).

Outside of ISTE, you can bring these vibrant learning opportunities to your class by heading to the Microsoft Store for Education and trying them. Below you will find some brief information on two key themes – Modern Classroom and Sparking Creativity.
