Education Website of the Week: Microsoft for Education

This week, the focus is on a page in the Microsoft for Education Website that helps schools using Microsoft products, or even other technology devices, to either prepare for the change or to measure it.

The website, Prepare Students for 1:1, is a checklist of sorts to help school leaders develop a strategy to make the switch. Materials provided on the website help in all sorts of ways to implement a 1:1 program, or to improve an existing 1:1 program. It also provides information on apps and devices. Especially if your school uses Microsoft, this website can really prove helpful.
