Script Details

***Please submit a custom demo*** 
This is the story of the Department of Education and Microsoft Advertising.

The Challenge: the US now ranks 14th in education, and education continues to be a key issue worldwide.

"Helping students see beyond the physical walls of the classroom and getting parents to be part of the learning process are a significant hurdle" - Marisol Buente, teacher, Washington D.C.

The innovative solution: World Period.

A classroom filled with kids from across the globe.
All attending together.
All learning together.
All connected by Microsoft tools.

Via messenger and Skype they connect and exchange ideas. With Kinect for XBOX students collaborate in ways never imagined possible. And teachers share and create lesson plans on SkyDrive.

But the story continues; the whole experience is shared with parents and the world.

Proceeds go towards improving schools, raising teacher salaries, and creating more World Periods.

All while breaking down the walls of the classroom by expanding cultural perspective and getting the world to pay attention to education.

The ultimate result, the Department of Education and Microsoft Advertising coming together to inspire millions of more stories worth sharing.
