Windows 8, What Does This Mean for Schools? - MicroK12 Blog

Windows 8, What Does This Mean for Schools? - MicroK12 Blog | Microsoft K-12 | Scoop.it

Last week Microsoft released the new Windows 8 Operating System. What we have seen so far is quite a break from how they have done things in the past, getting rid of the Start menu and implementing Metro – a re-imagining of what Windows will be going forward with. There are lots of implications about what this all means going forward. They are supporting multiple form factors from traditional desktops and laptops to tablets as well as the more modern and power efficient ARM processor architectures. What does this mean for schools?
