Microsoft announced the Windows 10 S operating system and the all-new Surface Laptop. Windows 10 S is Microsoft's answer to Chrome OS designed for classroom use. Windows 10 S has built-in tools to make teachers and administrators easily able to centrally set up, configure and adjust each machine's settings for students.
Windows 10 S only runs apps downloaded from the Windows Store and the Office 365 suite will be coming to the Windows Store in the near future, but the company also has other Windows 10 S education-centric experiences up its sleeve. Teams, Microsoft's answer to Slack, is adding a digital hub for teachers and students to the Windows Store, where they can engage with one another – and outside experts – consistently and dynamically, in and out of the classroom. Other software offerings include Minecraft: Educational Edition which gamifies code writing for students.
