Microsoft Surfaces In the real world

The other day I went to my sons secondary school to discuss his progress in year 10 and get his marks. 50 teachers moved around and sat at temporary tables. When asked marks they casually whipped out Microsoft Surface 3's and reviewed a variety of current and past papers and trends amongst his pears. The Surfaces seemed like a very suitable tool for the on the move world of teaching. The school is just a normal Sydney boys high school.

BTW. My son earned his bacon lettuce and tomato sandwich and chocolate milkshake, his marks were up. Now for study and the final big year.
