Microsoft has posted an upcoming event on its educational blog. Scheduled for release on November 9 at 9:00 am PST, and titled “Reimagine,” Microsoft plans to use this upcoming event to discuss the next step in education.
Microsoft says the 45-minute event should “fill in the gaps created by the pandemic.” More interestingly, he also mentions that the event will talk about “ways to tackle challenges with innovative technology and share best practices to support inclusive learning”. The event’s webpage suggests IT, principals, and educators should attend.
According to the blog post, other topics Microsoft plans to discuss at this event include “new and existing solutions from Microsoft Education.” As usual with Microsoft events, there will also be industry influencers, educators, and special guests speaking. Microsoft said the Grammy-winning and Academy Award-winning artist, actor, author and activist will be in attendance.
As for Microsoft employees speaking at the event, you can expect to see Paige Johnson, vice president of education marketing at Microsoft, as well as Deirdre Quarnstrom, vice president of educational experiences at Microsoft. Mike Tholfsen, Joe Cicero, Corey Lee and Rachel Williams are other Microsoft employees mentioned for the event.
It will be interesting to see if Microsoft could use this event to reveal the rumored low-cost 11-inch laptop for education customers. A new version of Windows 11 SE, as reported by Windows Central, could also be something Microsoft could announce at the event as well.
We’ll be following the news closely next week, so be sure to stay tuned to OnMSFT for more. In the meantime, you can add the event to your calendar.
