Surface @ school.
A seamless mobile classroom experience with Microsoft!
Tablets and notebooks have become a vital part of the private lives of pupils and students, teachers and lecturers. In the classroom however, this type of IT hardware is often outdated, not powerful enough, or even non-existent. The Microsoft Surface family opens up a totally new way of working. Pupils, students, and teaching staff are no longer bound to their desks and can now bring their teaching and learning to the cutting edge—with more mobility and the option to teach remotely.

Surface devices are lightweight and portable, weigh less than most textbooks and fit easily into a backpack.
Intuitive touch operation with high-resolution PixelSense™ display.
Natural writing experience with the Surface Pen for notes and sketches—just like on paper.
Pupils can easily connect up projectors, printers, cameras, digital microscopes, robots, keyboards, and other devices.
All-day battery life gets you through a packed day of learning—from classroom-based tasks to homework assignments.
