Fun, Free Forum – get your free downloads here!

24 June 2011

I woke up this morning and immediately the first thing I thought was, I did order the lunch didn’t I? I hope so otherwise I have a lot of hungry teachers, head teachers and IT network managers at Microsoft Campus today!

So today was our ‘’Fun, Free Forum’’ at our offices in Thames Valley Park. A day packed with quick, sharp and some amusing presentations showing off some of our solutions and software. Many people didn't (until now) know that we had so much free software that can be used to engage students and make learning more interactive and fun in the classroom.

If you came along today, myself and my team hope you had a good time and would like to thank you for taking the time out of your school to join us. We appreciate it is hard to find cover especially as many schools are coming to the end of their school year and also have the added pressure of exam time!

As promised, here are the links and information to the software and products we had on show today for you to download and integrate into your lessons , so if you were not able to make today, no fear – it’s all here!

Oh, and I remembered the lunch!
