Activity description: In response to this significant challenge, and as a demonstration of its ongoing commitment to education and learning, Microsoft has launched a new global initiative called Partners in Learning. Under Partners in Learning, Microsoft is partnering with Government, Ministries of Education, and other key stakeholders to offer a spectrum of education resources—tools, programs, and practices—to empower students and teachers to realize their full potential. • Partners in Learning Grants Program - provides investments to create a sustainable model for improving the use of technology in teaching and learning. • Fresh Start for Donated Computers - provides primary and secondary (K–12) schools with Microsoft Windows 98 or Windows 2000 licenses for donated PCs at no charge. • School Agreement Subscription Licensing Program - an annual subscription licensing agreement offers academic pricing and reduced administrative costs for K-12 schools. In addition, Partners in Learning provides eligible* primary schools with the opportunity to receive even lower pricing for Microsoft Office XP Professional and Windows XP Professional Upgrade licenses through their Microsoft School Agreement.
