But it wasn't just the Surface Studio that was unveiled, as a number of other announcements were made, many of which will have a great impact within education.
You can find further details of all the main announcements on this post from the Windows Blog, but to give you a broad overview, here's what is covered in the post:

- 3D for everyone
- Office apps to support 3D models and add new inking features

The importance of creativity within education is not to be underestimated, and providing an environment in which teachers and student can follow their instincts and easily turn their thoughts and inspiration into tangible outputs is one the key drivers of progress, certainly within the context of the impact technology can have to teaching and learning.
The Creators Update will enable anyone to create, share and experience in 3D and mixed reality, connect people faster to those they care about most and empower every gamer to be a broadcaster. And with the Creators Update, Microsoft Edge will be the first browser to bring 3D to the web.
