Transform your school’s use of technology with Microsoft 365 for education

26th September 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Learn how Microsoft 365 can help you improve outcomes, reduce costs and simplify how you manage your devices at this free half-day event.

Microsoft are teaming up with education training specialist Tablet Academy to deliver a series of events which introduce the new Microsoft 365 way of working – deploying and manage devices remotely using Intune and Autopilot, and improving communication and collaboration using Teams and Office 365 applications.

Join us for a morning or afternoon to hear about:

  • The new Microsoft 365 licensing model which includes Intune, Autopilot and Minecraft for Education for free.
  • Deploying and managing devices (inc. iPads) using Autopilot and Intune, therefore reducing the minimum device spec. and need for a separate MDM solution.
  • Migrating to Office 365 and Teams, including how to create, manage and embed best practise.

The purpose of the event is to inform attendees how Microsoft 365 licensing, Intune, Autopilot and Teams/Office 365 can support your institution to achieve more, reduce your workload and decrease costs.

Using Microsoft 365 and Intune to manage devices can also reduce the minimum spec. requirements for devices therefore reducing the cost per machine.
