GEMS students and teachers get to grips with Office 365July 1, 2015, 10:43 am GMT
Teachers and students at GEMS schools in the UAE have been learning how to make effective use of Microsoft's productivity platforms.
As part of the 'GEMSTONE' program, student ambassadors have been through a series of seminars and online workshops that teach them how to use Microsoft Office 365. The ambassadors have subsequently been passing on the knowledge acquired to their fellow students.
According to Microsoft, Office 365 facilitates teamwork and helps students to collaboratively create digital content.
"As technology becomes ubiquitous, Microsoft is constantly creating ways in which this technology can be best used to transform learning environments and deliver more personalised education to students, allowing them to do more and achieve more," said Ahmed Ameen, Gulf Education Lead, Microsoft.
Andrew Nolan, education technology advisor at GEMS, explained that the education group works with Microsoft IT Academy to develop the technical skills of all GEMS stakeholders.
"The GEMSTONE campaign has been extremely well received by our community," he said. "Our students have devised highly imaginative and creative projects that have created a real buzz in their communities about the possibilities of learning empowered by digital tools such as Office 365."
