Acer and Microsoft have chosen Trinity University of Asia to test Windows 11 SE, a new edition of Windows designed for education that runs on more affordable web-first devices that use essential education apps.
Microsoft Windows 11 SE is optimized for a cloud-first world featuring modern management to help empower the educational experience of students.
The Philippines is one of the first countries in Southeast Asia to roll out the tester program, with Trinity University of Asia among the schools initially tapped to try Windows 11 SE.
As one of the first members of Acer Academy, Trinity University of Asia was invited by Acer Philippines to experience Windows 11 SE. Acer Academy is a program that helps develop real and innovative IT solutions to help aid in education. Acer Academy helps teachers gain experience by extending the use of technology in the whole teaching planning and practice.
The tester program with Trinity University of Asia is a five-week course where teachers and students experience learning with the help of Acer laptops installed with Windows 11 SE. Throughout this period, Acer and Microsoft will demonstrate how the devices can help with hybrid learning. After the course, the school will provide feedback on their experience, and how they think the program can be improved.
Windows 11 SE provides a simplified, secure and curated experience for students. Administrators remotely manage Windows 11 SE devices using Microsoft Intune for Education. The administrators also make sure that student privacy is a priority.
“As the number one IT brand in the country, Acer’s mission is to break the barriers between people and technology. With Windows 11 SE, we are providing options that are simpler, secure, and work on more affordable devices,” said Carren Garcia, Acer Senior Channel Sales Manager, Commercial.
“Windows 11 SE provides teachers and students access to reliable hardware and software, which is crucial for school-age children in the hybrid and flexible learning environment,” said Cuki Pendor, Acer & Microsoft Champ.
“The teachers are looking forward to learning new ways on how to improve the quality of education in the school with the help of technology,” said Dr. Julius Somera, Principal of Trinity University of Asia.
