Microsoft and Varsity Education have partnered to leverage Microsoft’s Edu-Cloud-powered digital classrooms program for Varsity’s customers. This is the largest such adoption in any private K-12 educational network in the country. As part of this partnership, client schools will receive Microsoft’s Partners in Learning training programs that introduce innovative approaches to pedagogy, supports teacher professional development, and provides teachers with the tools to implement and manage change.
With this partnership, students will be digitally enabled to use education focused content through Microsoft’s Edu-Cloud platform. Students and teachers will have all their digital content on tablets. These tablets will have embedded text books with interactive content and also have free access to Office365 from Microsoft that will enable them to use Powerpoint, Word, Excel, OneNote, SharePoint and other new age technologies from Microsoft.
Macmillan Group, the international publishing leader, collaborates closely with Varsity on its proprietary educational content and teaching & assessment tools.
