Windows 10 for learning and teaching

Windows 10

Windows 10 creates an experience that helps schools improve educational outcomes, bring learning to life for students, and build 21st century skills. Both students and educators can consume and upload data, connect and collaborate, and even create presentations – all while working from anywhere. With Windows 10, the world is your classroom.

We have a great PD session that will show you how to use Windows 10 to bring learning to life and enable students to consume, collaborate, and create in entirely new ways.

We can tailor courses to suit your school requirements, or you can book our standard Windows 10 for Learning and Teaching course, outlined below.
