Windows 10 is getting new privacy tools in the next major update

It has revealed the new machines at the annual Bett education show in London.

Teachers are set to receive several new tools, too. Further new options come from JP, one of Microsoft's major device partners in emerging regions, priced from $199. The other two are 2-in-1s: the Lenovo 300e convertible with pen support for $279 and the Trigono V401 with pen and touch for $299.

The cheapest system, the Lenovo 100e, starts at US$189 (A$236) and features an Intel Celeron Apollo Lake processor, 2GB of memory, 32GB storage, and an 11.6 inch 1366 x 768 pixel screen that folds flat.

Each of these new devices are spill resistant and ruggedized, and has been created to have have long battery life and 2x2 Wi-Fi for faster connectivity.

The new announcements build on the momentum established by Microsoft's major school technology push of May 2017, which saw the introduction of the Surface Laptop, Windows 10 S and Teams for the classroom, said the executive.

In an interview, Microsoft Vice President for Worldwide Education Anthony Salcito said the company has collected feedback from its K-12 users about what it can do better-and it is responding.

The company's also sweetening the pot a bit by tossing in Office 365 for Education free for teachers.

Microsoft has agreed new partnerships with Lego Education, the BBC, PBS, NASA and Pearson, which will release six "mixed reality" applications for health, history, chemistry and maths.

Microsoft is pushing augmented and virtual reality headsets as being a key tool for education, dropping the price for its Hololens headsets for academic institutions until the end of May this year. The apps work with Microsoft HoloLens and will be rolled out across the year.

The new Chemistry update for Minecraft: Education Edition includes this compound creator and an element constructor.

Presentations in Microsoft PowerPoint can now be recorded-including slides, video and narrations-and published to the Microsoft Teams communication platform, a change Microsoft says will help give students easier access to teaching materials and lessons. The company is also expanding its OneNote Class Notebook software to include assignment and grade integration capabilities. A similar arrangement is being made between Microsoft and a provider of student information systems in United Kingdom, SIMS Capita. Microsoft is announcing a new update for Minecraft: Education Edition today which will start rolling out this Spring.
