In a world where blended and hybrid learning is the new norm, schools need tools and technology that complement this lifestyle change.
Hybrid learning has completely flipped the expectations of both students and teachers. Putting pen to paper is no longer a workable option when children are working from home. They need a high-quality technology experience to maximise their education potential.
Designed for Education
The Microsoft Surface Laptop SE is cleverly designed to accommodate the needs of the education sector, whilst meeting the tight budget of schools. With home learning now more common than ever, virtual class sessions are the only way to drive success in a child’s education. The Surface Laptop SE’s 11.6” display, 720p HD camera, digital microphone and stereo speakers make video learning feel effortless. So, children can be seen and heard whilst studying in a remote location.
Powerful Operating System
The Surface Laptop SE runs with Microsoft 11 SE. Included in this powerful operating system is Microsoft Teams, one of the most highly regarded hybrid working collaboration platforms. This enables students to start conversations, complete work and leave valuable feedback for teachers, all in one handy hub. Users also benefit from a complete Microsoft 365 package and Minecraft Education for unique learning experiences.
Microsoft 11 SE cleverly optimises performance with education-first apps designed to complement the budget-friendly device. This is made possible with the Intel Celeron Processor and modern eMMC storage, allowing apps and files to load and run quickly. And with super long battery life, the Laptop SE is perfect for fuelling endless creativity and innovative ideas throughout the school day.
Simplifying Solutions for IT Staff
Implementing such technology means that IT staff are tasked with managing more devices than they can handle. Though luckily, the Surface Laptop SE simplifies their job with easy deployment, management and security. The addition of Microsoft Intune means all laptops can benefit from app installations and updates from any location. IT staff can also keep on top of students’ safety with security controls.
The Surface Laptop SE has a range of complimentary accessories. These include a charging cart for smart charging, keyboard protector and document camera for distance learning.
Accessibility – Catering to the level of diversity in schools is paramount when finding fantastic tech solutions. Microsoft 11 SE incorporates apps and tools to suit the needs of children with disabilities, giving them the same learning opportunities as every other student.
Sleek Design – Featuring a slim profile, the Surface Laptop SE is perfect for a hybrid style of learning. Students can pack the device into their backpacks for easy transportation when switching between in-class and at home learning.
24/7 Access – In a world where technology is taking over, we’re also faced with the challenges of reliable internet access. To combat this inevitable setback, Microsoft has made it easy for students to access files and apps online and offline, minimising disruption to their education.
Unrivalled Security – A powerful advantage of Windows 11 SE is that it comes with built-in, always-on security and threat protection. Alongside Windows Defender Smartscreen Security, schools are armed with everything they need to keep students’ devices safe and protect them online.
