The City of Stockholm is one of the most knowledge‑worker intensive cities in the world, and is home to world-leading financial institutions and high‑technology companies. Cisco’s Smart+Connected solutions are helping the City of Stockholm make connected learning access available throughout its schools.
Teachers are able to access the Learning Management System anywhere on school premises over their WLAN and have their own virtual classroom. Students not only benefit from direct access to materials, but also the two-way flow of assignments and feedback.
