Microsoft has announced the Microsoft Schools Program, a way for schools around the world to ease the move to a more technological classroom. Registration for the program is now open, offering benefits that Microsoft says will help educators "transform their classrooms and empower students" using technology.
While that may sound a little over-the-top, the benefits of the program look to be a solid way to secure a little extra help for schools that may be leaning towards bringing more technology to the classroom. Those benefits include:
- Access for school leaders to enroll via our social channel, Yammer, into a global community of practice and reach over 1,000 other school leaders
- Quick start guide filled with assets and resources to support school leaders
- Monthly e-newsletter with the best of Microsoft Teaching and Leading resources
- Early updates (via our newsletter and social communities) on new products, offers and opportunities
- Curated resources for leaders and leading educators available from the Microsoft Educator Community
- Global recognition by being placed on our Microsoft And Showcase School list (updated monthly)
- Opportunity to participate in our quarterly global connect calls
Interested teachers and educators can fill out an application for their school to join the program now. And for more on the program itself, you can read up on what other educators have to say at the Microsoft Education Blog.
