Converged ICT Services Provider GCI has announced that it is holding an exclusive round-table event for academic institutes, where it will share how the latest Microsoft technologies can be utilised for learning in the classroom and beyond.
Taking place on 22nd November at Radisson Blu Hotel in Glasgow, this event has been designed specifically for schools, colleges and universities who want an insight into how they can increase collaboration and digitally transform their learning culture whilst keeping costs down. GCI will be joined by the award-winning independent school Hutchesons’ Grammar, who will discuss how utilising Microsoft 365 and Azure has replaced its on-premise infrastructure with a more dynamic, secure and reliable environment. Advice on best practice and answers to any questions will also be available from GCI’s technical experts, as well real-life examples of how Microsoft 365 ensures data and devices are continually secure, a demonstration of how Microsoft Teams enables greater collaboration in the Education sector, and a breakdown of the cost efficiencies you can achieve through Microsoft’s Education discount program.
Austin McGrory, Education Sector Lead at GCI, said: “This is a great opportunity for educational institutes to discover how they can keep up with ever-changing technological advances and help shape the young minds of the future. Whether a public or private school, college or university, many in the Education sector are feeling the pressure to adopt the latest technologies, streamline communications and increase collaboration between staff and students, all whilst working to tight budgets. Our experience in consulting on and deploying best-of-breed Microsoft solutions for our customers within the Education sector means we are well-placed to advise how they can bring about a more collaborative culture to enable digital transformation and learning beyond the classroom walls.”
