Microsoft showcases School of the Future

The fourth annual Microsoft School of the Future World Summit runs from today through Thursday in Seattle.

"The theme, “What’s Possible,” will enable more than 250 participants to facilitate a global discussion on what schools in the future can look like by examining the areas of instruction, organization design, technology, the challenges of implementing new policy and emerging trends everyone faces as they prepare students for the 21st century global workforce."

Pioneered by the software giant, the first pilot program has been ongoing in Philadelphia.

250 participants from 30 countries are attending the conference presented by Microsoft Partners in Learning.

Extensive information and downloads on this forward looking initiative are available from the 3 links above.
