La Salle College High School has been a Flagship Microsoft IT Academy since 1998 and has been nationally-recognized for being on the cutting edge of 21st Century Educational Technology.
Tablets have been around in schools for a number of years and after a careful study that included a Pilot program with iPads, La Salle chose to go with Windows tablets.
In this session Chief Information Officer Peter R Sigmund, and team will discuss why they chose Windows for their tablet initiative, and what 21st century skills are taught using the tablets including the use of OneDrive, Microsoft Sway, Social Media responsibility and advanced Microsoft Office skills.
