We have other customers who have committed to Surface Pro 3, but CCDS is the first school to adopt Surface Pro 3 as their 1:1 student computing device. When I sat down to talk to Rob about his vision and philosophy around technology in Education, he spoke about 3 things - the importance and value of reading and writing to the way students learn, their focus on the creative process, and giving teachers and students technology tools that are versatile enough to support whatever they want to do. When I asked him why he chose the Surface Pro 3 for CCDS, he told me that it was the first no-compromise device that met all 3 of his criteria:
I had heard from many Education Experts and Advisors that ultimately, the device doesn't really matter - it's more about the web, apps and the digital learning content available. So, at the end of our conversation, I challenged Rob with this notion, and his response was, "Sure, the device doesn't matter… until you have the wrong device and can't do what you want with it. Then it really matters." You can watch more about why Cincinnati Country Day School chose Surface Pro 3 here:
