Gateway to Produce Custom-made Systems for K-12 Schools
Gateway's new Your:)Ware for Education program focuses on designing technology that responds to the needs of educators in K-12 school systems. Gateway will consult with education customers to find out just what they require and then custom-build a system of hardware and software based on their demands.
While creating the program, Gateway listened to school district administrators, teachers and technology coordinators around the country. Your:)Ware for Education is meant to satisfy many school districts' quests for a simple, customized approach to meeting their technology integration objectives. New elements may be added through the years as needs change or evolve.
Your:)Ware for Education includes a Microsoft Teaching and Learning CD-ROM set, access to a teacher help line staffed in part by former teachers, a separate help line for district technology coordinators and training at the school site or at a local Gateway Country store.
