Meet the Surface Hub 2
Surface Hub 2 is helping teachers, trainers and lecturers to reach, enliven and educate more students. Surface Hub 2 is an all-in-one digital whiteboard, meetings platform, presentation device and collaborative computing solution using the power of Windows 10. The 50.5” super slim, interactive 4K touch screen comes with a mobile stand, a 4K moveable camera and an interactive pen. In addition, in the near future, the APC-designed battery will be available (so the Surface Hub 2 will not only be truly mobile but also cordless as well).
Imagine if you could teach anywhere and any way
With Surface Hub 2 your learning spaces can be wherever you want – in the science lab, language rooms, group meeting areas or even outside. You can create highly effective learning spaces across your school, college or university and provide better support for higher-value learning and smarter digital communications for your students, increasing the effectiveness of your curriculum.
Today’s classrooms are ever evolving to keep pace with students who look to share ideas in new and exciting ways.

Microsoft Surface Hub 2 is an incredible creative platform for sharing ideas and engaging with students.

Generation Z responds positively to familiar technology
The Surface Hub 2 provides a way for educators to put into practice progressive thinking and best practice surrounding knowledge transfer and acquisition, by providing a dynamic, flexible and more immersive environment.
As we learn more about the behaviour, habits and interests of Generation Z (also known as the iGeneration or Post-millennials), it is apparent that the Surface Hub 2 corresponds to the technology with which most of today’s students have been familiar all their lives.
The average Gen Z-er received their first mobile phone at about the age of 10. Many of them grew up playing with their parents’ mobile phones or tablets. They have grown up in a hyper-connected world and the smartphone is their preferred method of communication. On average, they spend three hours a day on their mobile device.
Students embrace content delivery mechanisms in education that reflect their ‘natural’ outlets, which support comment, sharing, saving and promotion. Educators can tap into students’ interests by phasing presentations, and by inviting inclusion and positive dialogue.
Surface Hub 2 gives teachers more reach and students more access
Surface Hub 2 is a fabulous solution that ensures quality learning in a collaborative environment from any location. The virtual classroom enables educational establishments to maximise teaching and training resources. The Surface Hub is an ideal solution for distance learning, when a teacher can reach widely dispersed students/pupils and open up education opportunities to those who may not otherwise have access.

In schools that exercise a cross-discipline approach to the curriculum, the Surface Hub 2 can be used to involve teachers or groups of students on an instant, ad hoc basis.
Pay as you go – Surface ‘Hub as a Service’
Surface ‘Hub-as-a-Service’ (HaaS) allows schools and colleges to access technology on-demand. Instead of purchasing large technology assets, an institution can now purchase technology resources that meet their current needs.
A school or college’s education technology needs will always be subject to change – we recognise this and, therefore, with HaaS one monthly payment (over a fixed term) delivers a better technology solution and service, with a predictable life cycle. In effect switching costs from a capital expenditure to an operating cost.
The HaaS offer is perfect for educators looking to add collaboration tools and a more dynamic learning experience, but who are also cost conscious and want to manage budgets, service delivery, warranty, training and technical support.
