“Teachers without Surface and Digital Ink don’t even consider working the way we do, because we do things that are otherwise impossible… this has probably been the most significant change in our classroom.” – Director of Technology, K-12
The Good News
98% of classrooms frequently use computers, laptops or tablets.
The Bad News
More than half of all teachers are tethered to a desktop computer, another 30% to a traditional notebook, making interaction with their instructional material while standing or walking around awkward.
Changing for the Better
Modern classrooms are starting to look different – about 10% use a tablet with touch screen, which makes simultaneous interaction between teachers, students and the material more seamless and authentic.
The benefits experienced by educators are endless, Microsoft Surface with digital inking is proven to:
“Consider white boards: I erase and redo every period, six times a day. Now, I just complete a template on OneNote, and fill it in.” – High School Science Teacher
“The Surface with Digital Ink gives me the ability to be anywhere and everywhere in class, at once. I’m not tied to the front of the room.” – Teacher, Grade K-8
