Lab Manager Program Selected by Microsoft as One of the Most Innovative Programs in the US
La Salle College High School continues to push the boundaries of innovation at the High School level and continues to lead the area in technology. This is evident in the Lab Manager Program being chosen by Microsoft as part of their 100 most innovative technological programs in the United States.
Chief Information Officer Peter Sigmund, MCSE, MCTS and Network and Website Administrator Mr. Braden Bonner, MPC, MTA were flown out to Microsoft headquarters in Redmond, Washington to demonstrate the program at the national level and increase exposure for the program among Microsoft executives and national educators at the 2012 Partners in Learning US Forum. It is Microsoft’s hope that the team concept that the lab manager program is built upon can be duplicated at other schools around the country.
The Partners in Learning Global Forum is the signature program of Microsoft Partners in Learning to honor innovative teachers and schools, and to showcase how technology can further educational transformation by being appropriately incorporated into curricula, pedagogy, and classrooms. Partners in Learning is the 10-year, nearly $500 million commitment by Microsoft to help education systems around the world.
The Lab Manager program at La Salle is one of a kind. The students are given the opportunity to run a network that consists of over 1200 users. The team of young men work together every day with the common goal to make La Salle the best tech school in the country. The lab managers have spent the summer installing Windows 8 on all computers on campus, making La Salle one of the 1st institutions in the country to make the switch to Microsoft's latest and most advanced operating system.
