Microsoft Surface

Education

From teachers and students to administrators, Microsoft Surface delivers value across education because it’s truly versatile, intuitive to use, powerfully efficient and incredibly secure.

Empowering educators, inspiring students

Today’s classrooms have evolved. While traditional tools, like pen and paper, remain important to individual lessons, it’s technology that offers new opportunities to enhance the student learning experience with greater engagement and interaction.

Surface devices bridge the gap between analogue and digital worlds. Built to transform education, Surface brings lessons to life and improves the quality of teaching – whether through helping teachers to streamline lesson plans, and create and grade assignments, or enabling students to collaborate with their peers, and create an individual learning environment that best suits their needs.

Enhancing the student experience
 

Surface supports a natural transition from analogue to digital mediums:

  • Supporting full touch and inking in the same aspect ratio as a piece of paper.
  • Surface Pen or Microsoft Classroom Pen allow students to write naturally.
  • Smart Controls in the Type Cover differentiate between intentional and accidental clicks.

While its innovative hinge design means the Surface Go can move between a tablet, studio, and laptop experience to support differentiated learning. When combined with touch and pen, students across all grade levels have access to more options, activities and learning outcomes.
 

Supporting teachers to transform education

Surface allows teachers to immediately immerse their students into the lesson:

  • Windows Hello uses biometric login information for simple, quick, secure logon.
  • Miracast enables teachers to connect wirelessly to a projector anywhere in the classroom.
  • Touch and inking bring an interactive whiteboard experience to the students’ desks.

“Surface Go is allowing us to become more creative in the classroom and to be more accessible in terms of sharing, producing and collating information. The device helps me every single day: I can’t imagine actually doing the job without it."
