Empowering the students of today to create the world of tomorrow. With best-in-class digital inking capabilities and collaboration tools to boost learning outcomes, it’s the platform students never outgrow.

Regardless of age or ability, students can personalise their studies to improve reading skills by reducing visual crowding, highlighting and voicing text, and breaking words into syllables.

Use OneNote — the ultimate digital notebook to organise and collaborate. Organise class materials and prepare assignments with handwritten text, web content, even audio and video from your devices. Then, easily collaborate with students and colleagues.

Modern Windows 10 devices support digital ink, which enables students to write, draw, solve math problems, and create right on their device. Students who use digital ink produce 56% more diagrams, symbols, and numbers, leading up to a 38% improvement in performance.

Research statistics based on “Computer interfaces and their impact on learning: Sharon Oviatt”, 2013.

Choose from a selection of Windows 10 devices with features that range from being rugged and spill-proof for student use to all-day battery life all with the power, performance, and security that teachers, students, and families can count on.

There is no limit to what students can achieve when technology reflects the diversity of all who use it. Watch the video below to find out how people at home, school, and work can achieve more with the built-in accessibility tools and features in Microsoft technologies.

Microsoft Teams is the digital hub that brings conversations, content, and apps together in one place. Create collaborative classrooms, connect in professional learning communities, and communicate with all staff — all from a single experience in Office 365 Education.

Every age, every student, every learning style. Find out below about the difference device options and which learning environments they work best in.

Use our checklist below to ensure that you are getting the right device for your child.

Look for the A+when choosing a device for your child.

  • The latest Windows – apps and settings go with you across all devices
  • Able to run programs such as Microsoft Office, Adobe Photoshop or AutoCad
  • Optimised to work in the cloud when you’re connected to the internet and work on your desktop when you’re not.
  • Make sure it lasts a typical school day: 6 hours is usual.
  • Remember battery life will vary with usage, so go for a longer battery life, if possible.
  • Needed to connect digital peripherals, such as a microscope, a printer, graphics tablet, a musical keyboard, thermometer, light meter, ect.
  • Make sure it has dual band Wi-Fi (2.4Ghz and 5Ghz) to get the fastest access to the school network.
  • A minimum of a 10″ screen – larger for creative or technical work.
  • A touchscreen for browsing.
  • A keyboard for typing assignments.
  • Aim for under 1.6kg.
  • Consider what your individual student is capable of carrying.
  • It’s easy to keep tabs on what tabs your child opens and how long they’ve been online.
  • You can even restrict websites and lock down the device.
  • Forget entering a password, a Windows 10 device can recognise your fingerprint and facial features so you can sign in with just a touch. Or a wink.

*Device dependent.

  • Using a stylus pen to sketch notes on a Windows 10 device is now as natural as using pencil on paper.

Important to note: Microsoft advises that purchasers always check that the detailed specification of a particular model is as expected and that it meets your desired criteria. Features and functions will vary within a manufacturers range. This checklist has been created by Microsoft as a guide only. It is based on their experience of working with Primary and Secondary schools in New Zealand and Australia and has been built with assistance from device manufacturers. Please remember that actual requirements will vary by usage and user, and we recommend you seek advice from a specialist supplier and your school.


Heading to high school, laptops have more power but are still light in the backpack. With a full keyboard, they make sense for subjects that demand lots of writing. They can use more demanding software, write computer programs, edit videos and more.


Very versatile, with touch screen as well as keyboard. Plenty of power for running chunky applications, plus a touchscreen for more kinaesthetic learning.

2-IN-1View All

The ultimate ‘no compromise’ device with a keyboard, touchscreen amp; pen-style input. Great for subjects where handwriting is critical like maths, chemistry and more. Ultra-light and ultra-powerful — fantastic for older students.
