Microsoft Interactive Education Experience

MicrosoftOn 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.

Surface 3: Highlights

    • Easy to use and erase.
    • Highly responsive with no lag.
    • Palm block technology allows your hand to touch the screen while you use the digital pen.Surface 3
    • The keyboard was never designed as a thinking tool. The digital pen allows you to be more creative.

  • Easily converted between a tablet and a laptop – quickly adapts to your needs.
  • OneDrive and OneNote
    • Easy to use.
    • Free app across all of your devices or use it on the web.
    • Share your notebooks with others for viewing or editing – online collaboration (just like Google Drive).
  • Power BI
    • Transform your company data into rich visuals.

I’ve really enjoyed using the Surface 3 and I’ve been pleasantly surprised. It has been perfect to take to PD sessions– it is the perfect size and easily converts between a tablet and a laptop. Click here for more information about the Surface 3 and check out #MSAUedu.
