Ash Merchant, Director of Education at Fujitsu UK, commented: “The digital world is now moving so fast that many of us understandably feel left in the dark about the latest products, services and methods. For the country’s educators, it is paramount that they are up to speed with these technologies, so that they can impart that knowledge on to their pupils and equip them with the necessary skills to compete in the workplace of the future.”
Merchant continued: “As technology solutions providers, we at Fujitsu are determined to ensure that teachers have the right digital skills and knowledge to inform and inspire their pupils. In doing so, collectively with the education sector, we can be sure that young people will be ready to live and work in the exciting digital world of tomorrow.”
Fujitsu CoDE will be available for demonstration at Fujitsu’s stand E250 at Bett Show 2019 in London’s ExCel Centre on 23 - 26 January 2019.
