West-Mont Montessori School is an independent, school delivering an early primary to grade 8 Montessori curriculum in Metchosin, British Columbia, Canada. Like with their curriculum, West-Mont also takes a progressive and innovative approach to their adoption and use of technology. As early adopters of cloud technology, they have implemented various digital solutions to increase internal collaboration amongst staff and external communications with parents.
Tight deadlines, a lack of resources, and a need to do the right thing the first time drove West-Mont to seek outside support to address a number of key challenges they faced with making Microsoft’s online cloud productivity suite work for them. These centred on increasing user adoption through simplifying systems.
