Tablet computers are fast becoming the mobile technology of choice for schools, due to their flexibility, long battery life and complete mobility. Tablets such as the new Microsoft Surface have opened up the door to new possibilities, allowing students to take learning out of the classroom and beyond; these highly portable computers are ideal to take on field trips, where pupils can record their day through the medium of video. Group projects become simple through the use of apps, sharing information amongst group members and allowing them to work on the move. With the internet at pupil’s fingertips, research is readily available.
To demonstrate the new Microsoft Surface tablet and how it can be used to these benefits and more for learners in schools, Lee Stott from Microsoft will be hosting a seminar at the Bett Show, on LapSafe® Products’ stand F130.
On Wednesday 30th January at 11.30am, Lee will be presenting a day in the life with Windows 8 and the Microsoft Surface tablet, showcasing how educators can engage students with the device, enhancing the teaching and learning experience.
The first of LapSafe’s free teacher best practice events, similar short sessions will be held throughout the week and are designed to enable teachers to discover new ideas to utilise innovative technologies.
