  • Microsoft unveils $200 Windows 10 laptops for schools

This week at the Bett show in London, Microsoft made its first education announcements for 2018. Apple has always been Microsoft's competitor in the educational sector, and now the company must also do battle with Google's Chromebook platform in the classroom.

In nationwide survey results released by EdWeek Market Brief previous year, K-12 officials said they preferred Chromebooks to Microsoft and Apple products in a number of areas, especially affordability. But in their new announcement, they also acknowledged that price point weighs heavily on many school buyers.

Microsoft's goal for Windows Mixed Reality has always been to make affordable headsets with great virtual and augmented reality experiences that could scale for regular, normal people.

In an interview, Microsoft Vice President for Worldwide Education Anthony Salcito said the company has collected feedback from its K-12 users about what it can do better-and it is responding.

While it may seem a little early to think about the back-to-school season-at least for students and parents in the Northern Hemisphere where classes generally start back up in September-educators are just now beginning to evaluate their technology options and plot out their strategies for the start of the next school year, said Eran Megiddo, corporate vice president of OneNote, Wunderlist and Education at Microsoft.

Microsoft today highlighted new Windows 10 and Windows 10 S devices starting at $189 from its OEM partners Lenovo and JP to take on Chromebooks in the education market.

Finally, Microsoft also announced that organizations that buy Microsoft 365 Education licenses between February and December this year will be eligible for free training on how to use the service. As we noted above, the new Privacy Tools has been released to the Fast ring Insiders and it provides a closer look into how Microsoft is going to implement them.
