On Wednesday 30th September 2015, I was lucky enough to be invited to the Microsoft Interactive Education Experience. The day included a tour of the Microsoft office and a look at the Surface 3.
It was nice to see Microsoft taking a real interest in education and adopting creative and flexible work spaces in their office. I must admit, I love my Mac and iPhone, however it didn’t take long before I was impressed with the new feel to Microsoft and the Surface 3.
