Schools today must innovate around how and where learning happens and the devices and solutions needed to enable it. Simply put, the way students learn is changing—remote and hybrid learning are becoming the new norm, and while they can bring many benefits, they’re not without challenges:
• Increasingly complex IT environments due to the number of new devices connecting to the school network.
• Need to provision and deploy devices remotely without sacrificing security
• Pressure to provide equitable access to devices within the school budget
• Admins and faculty need flexible, productive, and secure options to work from home
• Growing cyberthreats require more advanced security across devices, users, apps and their data.
Surface devices encourage creativity and interactivity. Educators have more time and freedom to develop more personalized lessons for students. Intuitive, easy to use devices help students to master curriculum content. Surface helps educators provide a personalized, engaging experience to every learner with multiple form factors, video, image, touch, and voice features that can adapt to every learner’s specific needs. Surface devices have been designed to provide an intuitive, highly secure technology experience that unleashes the full potential of every student.
