Inking Your Thinking: Case studies in innovation with Microsoft Surface
The Inking Your Thinking project was conducted in 2014, in partnership with the Victorian Department of Education and Training, Victoria University and Microsoft. This study took place in three Victorian government schools where students in Kindergarten, Year 2 and Years 7 and 8 were provided with access to Surface devices.
The case studies in this report were designed to explore the potential of the new technology and document the innovative ways in which the Surface could be integrated in classrooms across the four levels of schooling.

If you have a touch device with a digital stylus you can use your stylus to draw or write directly on the screen when using Office programs. This is a great way to illustrate something you are talking about when showing a PowerPoint presentation, or to highlight something the class mentions during a lesson.
In OneNote students can make notes using a digital stylus and click the 'Ink to Text' button to quickly convert their handwriting to text. This can then be easily copied and pasted into any other program - so students do not need to make notes only to type them up again later.
Dock to Desktop is great for keeping your notes on top of other programs. It also enables you to make Linked Notes, which is very helpful for research and revision.
