Microsoft for Education & Student Laptop Program
Power to the students! Microsoft provides a complete suite of products like Word, OneNote, Teams and more, to enable students to progress through their curriculum from anywhere. With familiar applications and cloud-based file storage, students are able to immediately jump into the learning process. These educational tools are used by our teachers and students to complete coursework, collaborate and innovate. Students can access Microsoft Office from Android, iOS and Windows devices.
Microsoft Teams is an innovative way to bring students together to connect and collaborate. With useful features like OneNote integration to keep track of your notes and calendar, and instant group messaging and document sharing, Teams offers everything the modern student needs to stay connected with their projects and peers.
To complete the online learning experience, Microsoft offers OneNote - the notebook, reimagined! Students can access a digital notebook for each of their classes along with shared notebooks for shared group work. Notebooks are divided into sections and pages, so that students can easily locate notes with a few clicks. OneNote also offers the option to take notes by hand and sketch diagrams to encourage active note taking.
Part of the Microsoft ecosystem, SharePoint is the ultimate online file management platform. With a variety of options for organization of course work and student resources, SharePoint gives students the opportunity to access and manage personal, class and school files outside of the classroom wherever they may be at any time of the day. Through this we ensure that ABS students have the tools needed to excel while tackling studies at home as well.
Whether it be coursework or assignments, cloud-based applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc., are essential to tracking and saving progress. These applications offer the freedom to pick up where you left off from a variety of internet-enabled devices. By taking work online, students can share content and collaborate in real-time, increasing efficiency and reducing the need to rely on external, and often ineffective, forms of communication.

The Lenovo 300e 3rd Gen meets different types of learners on their level. Its 360-degree Sync hinge allows students to transition seamlessly between four different modes for reading, writing, drawing, typing, creating content, and presenting it.
Designed to meet MIL-STD-810G and Lenovo EDU Spec standards, the Lenovo 300e 3rd Gen features a water-resistant (up to 330 ml) keyboard, reinforced ports, and mechanically-anchored keys.
NOT YOUR EVERYDAY NOTEBOOK
The Lenovo 300e 3rd Gen combines the familiar and easy-to-use Windows 11 platform with the latest Intel® Celeron® processor and an 11.6-inch, 10-point multitouch display to create an engaging learning experience anywhere students go.
No Pen? No problem. With Pencil Touch technology, you can use a No. 2 pencil to interact directly and safely with the touch screen. Pencil Touch is ideal for taking tests, drawing, and notetaking because it’s more accurate than using a finger when more precision is required.
