Microsoft Opens: School Of The Future

A new school, sponsored by Microsoft, named the ’School of the Future’ opened in Philadelphia, USA on Thursday. It’s actually a collaboration between Microsoft and two other schools. What has been named "one of the most advanced high schools ever conceived" opened its doors at 8am on 7th September thanks to a collaboration between the School District of Philadelphia, Microsoft and the West Philadelphia community. The school is designed to show that tomorrow’s schools are perfectly achievable even with a typical budget of today. Each of the 170 new students at the school are given tablet PCs, have smartcard-accessable lockers and get broadband internet at home to name just a few things. The building is also a high-tech wonderland, made up of such features as photovoltaic panels in the glass windows and roof that convert sunlight into direct current to contribute to the electricity supply. The data is even relayed in real-time so students can see the positive effect. "The School of the Future shows how public and private partnerships can yield new thinking and sustainable change in educational systems around the world," said Craig Mundie, chief research and strategy officer at Microsoft. There’s a load more resources in reference to this high-tech playground on Microsoft’s web site.
