Whether you like Windows 8 or not – no one can question that this is a fantastic deal for schools and local authorities. It has already generated a real stir in the Scottish Education Independent Sector and I just hope that some of our state schools will be in a position to make use of the deal.
Microsoft are really pushing surface at the moment – they even gave 10, 000 away at the recent ISTE Conference in the US.
There is a lot of talk as to why Microsoft doing this sort of thing, but ultimately the aim is to disrupt the education tablet market that is currently dominated by iPad.
Anyone currently using Surface in schools?
