Teacher and Staff Professional Development : Free for Surface customers

Microsoft found that the most commonly cited reason for technology rollouts in schools failing, is that teachers were not prepared and enabled with the skills to implement the change. New technology is inevitable – for this reason, schools need to make digital literacy a key element of any professional development undertaking.

  • Get to know Surface for Teachers: Using tablet, presentation & laptop modes.
