But 10,000 teachers at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference will be getting something much more special — and valuable — next month: A Microsoft Surface tablet.
Yep, that’s right. As part of the Windows in the Classroom Surface Experience Project, the Redmond software giant is getting all Oprah and giving away a bunch of Surface RT tablets to teachers who are registered at ISTE 2013 before June 18.
Teachers who want a Surface can sign up here to receive a gift acknowledgement letter to be signed by a school official. Once teachers pick up their tablet, they’re encouraged to attend Microsoft workshops during the conference.
ISTE, the largest edtech conference in the U.S. and second-largest in the world, takes place later this month from June 23-26.
