I thought this case study might be of interest to both individual schools and Departments/Ministries of Education. We are constantly looking at more effective ways train people on Microsoft technologies and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (great name by the way ) has taken a bold and innovative approach in preparing students for today’s workplace.
As quoted in the case study:
Thanks to the NCDPI’s partnership with Microsoft, school districts are saving up to $5 million a year in software, professional development, and other costs; teachers are improving their technology knowledge; and students are building the twenty-first century skills that will make them more marketable to future employers.
