Microsoft has rolled out its K12 Education Transformation Framework more widely to schools across India to empower students with future-ready skills.

The Microsoft K-12 Education Transformation Framework provides a holistic framework to facilitate a comprehensive digital transformation of schools. The framework is a flexible platform based on the latest research and input from hundreds of academics, experts, and policymakers. Education leaders in more than 50 countries have already adopted the Microsoft K-12 Education Transformation Framework to help plan their learning strategies in partnership with Microsoft.

Microsoft India announced this at the second edition of the Microsoft Education Days that brought together more than 700 school leaders, educators, students, and Microsoft partners to deliberate on the future of learning. Additionally, Microsoft also awarded educators and schools for their individual and collective achievements for outstanding work in the field of education.

“Microsoft has deeply invested in digital transformation of the education eco-system in India over a decade long association. Our recent initiative with the government to introduce AI into schools is empowering the young children of India tremendously to build the India of tomorrow.”

– Manish Prakash, Country General Manager – Public Sector, Health and Education, Microsoft India

Microsoft has been working across the board to transform the education ecosystem – empowering policymakers with analytics to make sustainable education investments, preparing teachers to transform learning by using technology and building integrated cloud solutions with education partners. At the recently concluded Global Learning Connection (formerly called Skype-a-Thon), the biggest global learning event of the year, Microsoft connected over 16,000 students from across 40 schools in India to open a dialogue on various themes ranging from AI, cybersecurity, environment, and sustainability.
