The British School in Colombo has embarked on the wave of digital transformation in partnership with Tech One Global, Microsoft, and Learning Possibilities.

The British School in Colombo is a progressive international school establishing the concept of creative, collaborative, and transformative learning with the use of cutting-edge technologies. In January 2017, the school piloted the market-leading Learning Management System (LMS) LP+365 with the aid of Tech One’s support, training, and implementation program, according to a Microsoft Sri Lanka media release.

At the latest launch, fellow educators and government representatives were invited to see the journey of the students and teachers in the adoption of these technologies. Microsoft, together with the CEOs of both Tech One Global and Learning Possibilities addressed the attendees with inspiring speeches.

LP+365 was developed in partnership by Learning Possibilities, the providers of the All Wales National Learning Platform and Microsoft to transform the education market in Asia. It is hosted on the Microsoft Azure cloud and transforms Microsoft Office 365 into an education focused collaborative and creative learning tool.

School Principal Dr. John Scarth said he was delighted to announce the success of the pilot phase of LP+365: “Microsoft and their partner products are used globally within education, businesses, and governments. To be able to teach and for our students to learn using market-leading tools that will build skills only to help them in future employment is crucial. LP+365 offers immense functionality and makes us part of a global community that ensures a collaborative, online, and connected element to our already high standards of teaching and learning. In addition, Tech One’s support and management and training on LP+365 has been second to none. Their expertise and commitment has motivated the teachers in the school to be the best they can in providing transformative teaching.”

Lars Jeppesen, CEO of Tech One Global, said: “We have been pioneering digital transformation in the Asia Pacific region for over a decade and the success at educational institutions like the British School Colombo, prove that digital transformation brings about educational impact that is necessary for future generations. LP+365 is a dynamic and intuitive LMS engaging learners and preparing them for the future.”

Rani Burchmore, Education and Partner Director, Microsoft Asia Pacific added: “This event marks a milestone in the region’s priority in ensuring digital transformation not only for businesses but for schools and the education system.”

Dr. Mehool Sanghrajka, CEO of Learning Possibilities remarked: “We are a social enterprise and at our heart is a passion to allow children to be the best they possibly can. The LP+365 App brings the best of Office 365 and more in an affordable and user friendly package helping students build 21st century skills at the tip of their fingertips on any device at any time. This digital transformation is what will build prosperous digital economies.”
