Over the last few years education has been crying out for alternatives to the traditional Windows PC environments that dominated education for the last three decades.
I would be the first to admit it probably gets overlooked a little more than it should for a platform that still dominates market share of all computing devices.
Design Learn and Empower have not forgotten about Windows and have put together this great collection of Windows Apps by curriculum area.
It is very current, with the vast majority being available on Windows 8 and surface and there are some great ideas around implementation in the classroom.
I would strongly recommend taking a look at this if you want to get more out of your windows PC's and devices in schools. Access it here.
