Microsoft is committed to helping students, educators and schools achieve better outcomes. We believe devices and software that integrate seamlessly can transform teaching and learning through enriched educational experiences.

We now offer a more comprehensive selection of devices, applications, and tools —all within a secure, trusted IT environment. Microsoft Education technologies are easy to setup and manage, integrate with existing school solutions, and maximize ITbudgets.

Teachers and students can benefit from leading-edge tools that make classrooms more engaging, inspire achievement, and prepare students for higher education as well as a dynamic workplace.


Affordable devices and simple setup – Boost creativity, and get started instantly on affordable and powerful new devices starting at $189 or $289 with Windows Ink. Setup in minutes and stay in control with new Intune for Education.
The modern collaborative classroom – Empower students to collaborate on multiple devices anywhere while preparing for university and career with Office apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote. Improve comprehension and outcomes with inclusive teaching apps like Learning Tools.
Go beyond the browser – Take students beyond traditional software with Minecraft: Education Edition, which promotes creativity and problem solving. And Windows 10 opens up a world of innovative apps in which students learn by doing and visualizing their results.

The Microsoft Education platform supports existing Windows 10 devices engineered for student use with faster logon and long battery life. Microsoft Intune for Education offers device enrollment, management, and security tailored for schools. Office 365 Education enables new opportunities for collaborative learning and discovery.Microsoft Classroom saves teachers time in managing assignment workflows, while PLC Groups and Staff Notebooks foster collaboration. And a host of Windows Store apps enrich the learning process with interactive experiences.
