Monica Burns says, " One of the highlights from my trip to ISTE in San Antonio this year was meeting the team at Lifeliqe! I had the chance to try out the Lifeliqe HoloLens and curriculum to see their new tool in action. During my demo I was able to move through a set of lessons that included a 3D model of a shark.

Unlike the Google Cardboard virtual reality experiences I’m used to, with the Lifeliqe HoloLens I could use my fingers to spin the 3D model and navigate this mixed reality space – and access curriculum materials straight from the headset."

Sway vs PowerPoint: What's The Difference? | Presentation Software

Eversdal Primary School – a Microsoft Showcase School where OneNote rules!

The interesting thing about Eversdal Primary is that not only are the school leadership team members all fully on board with the school’s ICT vision, but they are leading the way. Their vision is to equip the staff and supply a one-to-one learning experience to all their learners, without the need of individual attention. “This can only be achieved when our children are actively involved during a lesson and creating their own content, thus creating their own understanding of what has been taught,” says the principal Henk Arangies.
