For Better or For Worse? Microsoft Surface with Windows RT Why the Surface? Conclusion Call to Action Works Cited Use in the Classroom Features The Opposition Intro Thesis Requirements Microsoft Surface with Windows RT As the times are changing, our school is looking to modernize education. We have been searching for a device that we will not only use for our daily curriculum, but also use to take the common core test at the end of the year. We will also be using this device to conduct research and complete assignments. -allow for effective use in the classroom (completing assignments and conducting research)
-be durable and easy to operate
-inexpensive (relatively)
-last for 3-5 years
-at least a 9 1/2 in. screen
-have a physical keyboard (no virtual keyboard)
-allow for a stylus (a finger is acceptable) Considering the requirements and all of the other factors that go into choosing a device for our school, I believe the Microsoft Surface will help our students immensely, as well as increase the scope of our learning. Some may argue that the Surface is too expensive at $499 plus the $119.99 for the touch keyboard, however this is comparatively inexpensive. The Lenovo ThinkPad tablet is $699 and that doesn't even include the cost of a case. The Surface's touch keyboard is not just a keyboard, but also doubles as a case. The iPad costs $499 by itself and the case and the keyboard can cost upwards of an additional $108. The Surface includes a range of different features, engineered to make the device more accessible and simply, better.
-Kickstand enables hands-free entertainment
-slim, spill resistant Touch Cover clicks in for typing
-full size USB port and microSD card slot
-battery life of approximately 9 hours
-lightweight at only 1.5 lbs.
-10.6 in. screen
-VaporMg casing, strong yet smooth and lightweight
-front and rear cameras
-Windows RT and Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 The Surface is the perfect tablet for classroom use. The Kickstand allows you to work or watch on the device without having to hold it upright. When you're done, the Kickstand folds back into the device itself. The Touch Cover is perfect for on the go use. Just click it to connect it and you're ready to type on the slim, spill-proof keyboard. The Touch Keyboard also folds over and doubles as an attractive case for the Surface. With Microsoft Office Home and Student, writing essays or creating PowerPoints is easy. Windows 8 keeps the Surface organized and easy to access, making it the best tablet for students. If our school is to take learning to a new level, we will need the right tools and I believe the Microsoft Surface with Windows RT can do that. With it's Touch Cover capability, Windows 8, and Microsoft Office, the Surface is the best choice. The combined looks and productivity make it fun and easy to use, resulting in a better overall experience. Affordable, beautiful, and simple, the Surface is the device that can and will elevate our learning. - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/home
