Microsoft in Education pulls out all of the stops to enable innovative educators at ISTE 2012.

This year, Microsoft is the Tier One Sponsor for the International Society of Technology in Education (ISTE) 2012 Conference in San Diego, California. There is no better place to be than ISTE to share our optimism and support for educators. We are ‘super excited’ about this moment in history where technology can make a meaningful and transformative impact on teaching and learning.

Speaking of transformations, Microsoft has changed gears for 2012 and created an entirely new conference experience away from the exhibit floor.  The Microsoft Experience Center in Ballroom 20A is the destination for sessions and hands-on workshops with our Microsoft Subject Matter Experts and our Microsoft Partners in Learning Innovative Educators.  From Windows in the Classroom to Office365 in the Cloud, the sessions content covers the gamut of timely interest in teaching & learning.

With the upcoming of release of the reimagined Windows operating system for tablets, PCs, ultrabooks, and hybrid devices, there is a lot of excitement about the next-generation of teacher productivity and student learning with Windows 8.  There are hands-on sessions with Windows 8 tablets. These sessions have been packed all day, so I encourage you to come early to get a great seat and device in hand.

Anthony Salcito, Worldwide VP for Education and I featured on key topics throughout the conference agenda, so please stop Ballroom 20A at the San Diego Convention Center to learn more. While you are there, you can also enter to win an Xbox 360 with Kinect.

Our team has my scheduled jammed pack…but do not let that stop you from coming by to say, “Hello,” shake hands, or steal a hug.  See you in San Diego.
