Today, education must not be restricted to bell-to-bell instruction. Instruction must be an anytime, anywhere activity that meets students where they are and takes them to proficiency. If they have devices, they can be connected both at school and at home, which greatly expands their ability to continue learning beyond the school bell.

Superintendent, Miami-Dade County Schools

We needed a solution that would help our university cope with contemporary changes. In mid-2013, before the upcoming academic year, we wondered how to engage Gen Y students even harder in the learning process. Dell tablets with Intel and Microsoft solutions will help us develop a new method of teaching and achieve the goal.

We’re moving away from seeing it as just another subject taught in schools and looking at it as an integral tool that students use in all subjects. For us, that means ensuring that technology is available to everyone, and we don’t just have a few computers in the back of the classroom that students take turns using.
Chief Information Officer, Springfield Public Schools
Microsoft Azure is enabling us to keep up with the data deluge in the DNA sequencing space. We’re not only analyzing data faster, but analyzing it more intelligently.
