How Wellington College Transformed its Learning Environment with Microsoft Surface

Our partners at Microsoft recently implemented a learning environment strategy with Surface devices into the world-famous Wellington College.   

“Between the ’80s, when I actually went to school, and 2009, when I started working at Wellington College, nothing had changed. You could go even further back and still see rows of desks looking at the front. Now, thanks to Microsoft Surface, we have different classroom configurations. Everyone’s facing each other. Everyone’s learning in a new way.”  

Tony Whelton, Director of IT Services at Wellington College 

Founded in 1853, Wellington College has a tradition of innovation. In recent years, Tony Whelton and his IT team have brought technology into the classroom, empowering students to learn in a completely new way. 

From introducing OneNote to providing every student and teacher with the latest Microsoft Surface devices, Wellington College has made education more collaborative, efficient and immersive. 

As a Microsoft Showcase School for the last three years, the school regularly attends educational conferences to share what it has learned with other schools.
