We have two key resources

The Windows 8 in education eBook

Windows 8 in Education UK Microsite.

The microsite is design to sharesome key Windows 8 in education assets that look closely at our new OS specifically through an Education focus at schools, colleges and Universities.

In addition to the eBook, a key new asset that has literally just been added to the microsite is our Windows 8 in education video. The video showcases how both UCL and Hartsbrook E-Act Free School are using Windows 8 to build 21st skills and create more emotional connections with learning .I was involved in the filming of this video and both institutions are doing some amazing work with Windows 8, and technology in general. I personally loved the impact that Windows 8 had on the primary age students at Hartsbrook E-Act Free School to PhD Students and Researchers at UCL.

 

Windows 8 Apps

Windows 8 apps also sit front and centre of our new Windows 8 in education microsite. With a rapidly growing selection of education apps from the likes of Pearson, RM and Autology, the education category in the Windows Store has definitely been one of the most dynamic and innovative areas since launch.

Our app showcases offer a detailed overview of specific apps combined with screencasts, screenshots and information to allow you to learn more about how the app can help directly within your institution.

The intention is not to list every education app in the store, but offer a overview of a selection of UK apps available both today and over the coming months.

The UK Education Team will be adding fresh content, especially around new apps, to the site on a regular basis so be sure to come back regularly and keep up to date with what is going on.
