Helping Students Learn Without Limits

Today’s leading schools are innovating faster than ever. Students are no longer confined to traditional learning environments – they’re learning anywhere, on any device, in ways that reimagine what’s possible. As part of this approach, schools are drawing on technologies that support collaboration and project-based learning. That way, they can help their students address real-world issues using skills such as critical thinking, problem solving and communication, which better prepares them for a digital future.

About the Digital Schools Network

At Cisco, we understand the power of networks. That’s why we’ve applied our knowledge and expertise to create the Digital Schools Network, a collaboration platform designed to transform the way educators teach and students learn in K–12 systems for schools in Asia-Pacific and Japan. The Digital Schools Network enables educators and students to connect and share lessons and resources within a secure collaboration space.

Join the Digital Schools Network

Transform teaching and learning within your classrooms, campus and systems. Gaining acceptance to the Network is quick and easy. Simply:

  1. Register your Interest – Schools register interest by agreeing to Digital Schools Network charter and code of conduct
  2. Formal Acceptance – Upon formal acceptance into the Network, schools receive a welcome note and simply need to download Cisco Webex Teams (available on iOS, Android or desktop) to collaborate, participate, and contribute.

Program Benefits
