In rural KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, Lakeside Park Primary School uses Microsoft technology to prepare students for the future. Lakeside Park participated in the first pilot program of its type in the world, designed to test the benefits of using a range of Microsoft solutions. Using Kinect for Xbox 360, students play hands-free educational games that use sensors to replicate motion on screen. Teachers also gained much-needed communication, collaboration, and productivity capabilities with Microsoft Live@edu. Windows MultiPoint Server was installed at the school, which gave five users access with monitors to one computer and expanded the limited number of computers available for education. Lakeside Park worked with the Microsoft Partners in Learning education program to train the teachers and school administrators, and has seen remarkable improvement in student numeracy and literacy.
