Microsoft remains committed to education. With the continuously changing landscape in education, demands on budgets, staff and resources to prepare students for graduation or the workforce, faculties are being challenged more than ever to provide improved teaching and learning environments that result in greater student and institutional outcomes. New developments, communications, mobility, and cloud services are enabling educational institutions to communicate and collaborate both inside and out of classrooms in ways that were previously not possible.
Knowing that your time is valuable, we’ve developed a true to life, hands-on, interactive session designed for professionals like yourself – Microsoft Immersion Experiences.What Is A Microsoft Immersion Experience?
An immersion experience is a facilitated hands-on session to "Experience the Possible" by test-driving Microsoft devices and solutions through simulated, everyday education scenarios. Separate simulated environments are available for higher education and K-12. The content is specifically designed to be a hands-on in a small audience (up to 10 participants). The scenarios showcase collaboration between students, faculty and staff and provide for deep examples within a classroom and/or staff setting. There is no set agenda. Each immersive session is unique, as it is based on the interest of the session’s participants. Immersion sessions are 3 hours in length.
What To Expect
No slides, demos or sales pitch

Time to play a part. Each participant will select the character "persona" to play for the session
A facilitator to guide you through a live environment in the cloud (separate tenants for higher education & K-12) to explore for yourself "what’s possible"
