Why educators, students and schools will want and love Windows 8 - Microsoft in Education blog - Site Home - TechNet Blogs:

 "At Microsoft, our commitment to education starts with students and teachers. After all, they innovate in education every day.  However, putting teachers and students first means partnering with schools to ensure the fast changing-world of technology is relevant and helpful to the instruction in the classroom.

Accessing and utilizing digital content is on the rise around the world and many schools have already begun adopting 1-to-1 environments, whether schools are providing devices or students are bringing their own.  We envision modern learning experiences where each student will have a personal learning device because of the promise – and cost-effectiveness of going digital.   Learning is increasingly becoming unbound. It is independent of space and time, socio-economic barriers, and physical constraints. In fact, student and teachers are more mobile than ever before. Teaching and learning must adapt to this mobile context to accelerate student engagement and success."
