Back to School with Surface: Be noteworthy this school year

Surface 3-1

It’s been a couple of months now since the Surface 3 was released, and we're thrilled to be seeing so many schools, colleges and universities embracing this device for students and staff alike. Some of the stories we're hearing about how it is changing the way classes tackle group assignments, personal study, and staff feedback for students are absolutely fantastic.

This latest clip from the Surface team will help those who haven't yet used a Surface 3 to see some of the everyday uses and capabilities of this device within education, and for those of you who are already Surface 3 users, you might pick up a new trick or two!

As you'll see in the clip, there are a few things that can make life easier when using your Surface 3 for studies, or even recreational activities:

  • Record a lecture while taking notes at the same time.
  • Use the Surface Pen highlight and copy content from documents and websites into OneNote
  • Convert handwriting to text within OneNote
  • Use StaffPad to write music on the fly

Have you been using Surface 3 in your classroom or at university? Let us know what you think of it by getting in touch via the Microsoft Education UK Twitter account (@microsofteduk) or our Facebook Page.
