Microsoft believes that the evolving demands of the global economy make education vital to sustainable social and economic success. Microsoft has a long tradition for committing to and supporting education. An example of this is the investment made in the Partners in Learning program that is a global initiative designed to actively increase access to technology and improve its use in learning. The goal is to help schools gain better access to technology, foster innovative approaches to pedagogy and teacher professional development and provide education leaders with the tools to envision, implement and manage change.
Acer, the second player worldwide in the PC market, has given the green light to its education project aiming at introducing schools to a new kind of interaction between teachers and students through the use of technology. In partnership with European Schoolnet, an initial pilot will be carried out in six different European Countries.
The collaboration with European Schoolnet moves precisely towards better understanding Acer's future contribution to this area, relying on valuable feedback from those directly involved in education, beginning with the teachers.
