Is your school stuck with Windows XP and wants to move to Windows 7 or maybe your school needs a quick and easy way to deploy Windows 7 desktops?
Multipoint Server from Microsoft could be the answer and at the same time save your school thousands of pounds.
Google Apps for Education
Cloud computing is coming fast to all area’s of education allowing easy access to work from any device and from any location that has an Internet connection.
Google Apps for Education is ideally placed to allow your school to share documents and allow both staff and students to collaborate on projects, even allowing edits to be made at the same time by several different people.
Whether you are a year teacher who wants to set homework and projects for your class to complete or a school business manager who wants to share documents with governors and senor staff, Google Apps for Education fits the bill perfectly. See Dowson case study or my blog for more details.
