Update: Microsoft Education roadshow in Sydney on 23 November, then Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth


A reminder of our roadshow – which kicks off in Sydney in a week’s time

We’ve got together with a couple of our partners – Generation-e and Paradyne – and are heading out to Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth with an education roadshow for schools. And the timing’s perfect, because we’ve got the opposing effects of rapid technology change and squeezed IT budgets, happening right now.

So we thought you might want some help to consider how to make effective use of cloud technology, and providing your students with sustainable access to a ‘no compromise’ learning device. Plus, for the IT enthusiasts, there’s a need to fill the insatiable appetite for learning about the new technology and product releases – like Windows 8 and Office 365. And that’s what the roadshow is all about.

The aim of the agenda is to pack in as much as possible, and still leave enough time at the end for you to talk with colleagues from other schools and get the chance to see some of the latest Windows 8 devices, and touch and feel some of the new laptops, slates and all-in-one computers.
