One of the things that I am passionate about is the development of the community and the use of technology to help people. If I have ever been onsite with you, you may have heard me talk about some charity work that I spend a significant amount of my out of Microsoft time developing! Well a really cool thing happened recently and Charlton School was the subject of a Microsoft Case Study of its use of Microsoft Technology and specifically the use of App-V. I am chuffed with how well the school has developed and hope to be involved with the school for many years to come!
Have a read of the case study here.
But here is a short snippet!
“While other schools are waiting to see how they can use technology to build schools for the future, with Microsoft technology we’re already there.”
Charlton School in London needed to update its information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure to better serve its community of special needs students with moderate to severe learning difficulties. Working with Premier Field Engineering (PFE), the school built an infrastructure using Microsoft Application Virtualization version 4.5, part of the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack, to provide state-of-the-art learning resources for its own students and other young people with special needs across London.
