If anyone of you is planning to participate in the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE®) conference, scheduled on 23rd June 2013 there’s good news. You stand a chance of being awarded with a Microsoft surface Tablet. That’s because the software giant has just announced it would be giving away Surface tablets to the first 10,000 registered attendees as part of the Windows in the Classroom Surface Experience Project.
The Windows in the Classroom Surface Experience Project aims to provide an opportunity for educators to experience how a Windows 8 touch device makes learning a quick and fairly simple process. It seems Microsoft is working its tails off to make inroads into education.
Educators using Surface RT have the best of both worlds: the wonderful experience of a tablet combined with a no-compromise experience of a full-functioning laptop that includes Office and allows for creation and collaboration, and not just consumption,” said Margo Day, Vice President, U.S. Education, Microsoft. “Educators already using Windows 8 tell us they are able to get grading and planning done more quickly because they can multi-task and they can imagine new and personalized learning experiences for their students.”
