Why Academia?

There is always a reason behind the why. Imagine a world in which the vast majority of us wake up inspired, feel safe at work and return home fulfilled at the end of the day, simply because we understood we needed to answer the question of why first.

In technology, the why is essential.  Why would you trust and use a particular type of hardware or software in the first place?  Why do you need to transform and revolutionise the way you use technology in the classroom?  Why work with Academia?

Don’t take our word for it – hear from several of our key vendor partners who were happy to discuss working with Academia on finding the right technology solutions for the Education market in the UK.  These partner relationships are essential for the deployment and integration of technology innovation in the education system.

The Academia marketing team met up with a few our leading vendor partners at the Bett Show 2019, where they were able to showcase their latest products and services as well as help understand the reasons behind the why when working with Academia.

Nicola Meek, the education specialist from Microsoft, spoke with Academia about the Surface Go family of devices and the way they are changing the classroom of the future.
