Microsoft Philippines led an education alliance where a leading school in Cavite, National College of Science and Technology (NCST), will deploy 4,000 Windows 8.1 tablets for its students together with Microsoft’s partner Syntegraltech. NCST will also deploy Microsoft’s full education program including Office 365 and other services designed for 21st century learning.

The technologies provided by Microsoft respond to the current needs of NCST. As one of the fastest growing technological institutions in Southern Luzon, NCST is looking for partners and programs that can help it modernize learning at the same, will enable its graduates to be future-ready. With the rise of cloud and mobility as IT trends, NCST understands that tablets will be an essential tool not just in the classroom but in the workplace.

NCST chose Windows 8.1 tablets to provide its students with a no-compromise user experience for learning. When students need to be productive, they can leverage Office applications that work best with Windows. When they need to be on-the-go, students can benefit from the mobility and touch capabilities of Windows tablets. Thinking beyond using tablets simply as eBook readers, NCST relies on Windows to provide their students with solutions that support dynamic industry content.

As it is happening now in the workplace, users need to access important documents and collaborate with others despite geographical differences. In line with this, NCST is also moving to the cloud with Office 365 so its students and teachers can access their files, facilitate learning, and collaborate with one another anytime, anywhere, and across multiple devices. As Office 365 is a secure cloud technology, the data even personal information of students and teachers are safe.

“NCST takes pride in partnering with Microsoft in helping us reach our vision of providing the education of the future to our students,” said Emerson Atanacio, President and CEO of NCST. “Beyond providing the most advanced solutions, Microsoft’s full education program enables NCST students to gain 21st century learnings skills that can prepare them in the globally competitive job market.”

“Our partnership with NCST reflects Microsoft’s long-standing commitment to help the whole academic community realize their full potential through technology,” said Karrie Ilagan, General Manager of Microsoft Philippines. “We are making this happen through a holistic approach that involves, not just devices and services, but programs and trainings to effectively integrate technology in learning. With this, we look forward to more students landing good careers in today’s tech-centric job market, or becoming successful entrepreneurs.”

NCST students will also benefit from software design and development tools through DreamSpark, a Microsoft Program that supports technical education by providing access to software for learning, teaching, and research purposes. NCST, through Partners in Learning and Future IT Academy, will be provided with needed training to roll out these devices and services.
