She previously competed in the British University Ice Hockey Championship in 2012 and 2013. In the meantime, fans are advised to stay tuned for more updates.

With these new classroom devices, Microsoft is hoping to "bring the full power of a Windows device at the competitive price of the Chromebook", Tholfsen said. The remaining two devices are the Lenovo Classmate Leap T303 $199 and Trigono V401 2-in-1, which starts at $299. Microsoft didn't provide any details about the hardware in any of the machines beside the Lenovo 100e or what software they'd be using, but we suspect they might be based on Intel Apollo Lake or Gemini Lake SoCs and run the Windows 10 S operating system.

Microsoft said the devices, from Lenovo and JP, are highly durable and spill resistant - qualities necessary for withstanding any K-12 classroom. The new Immersive Reader feature is coming to more Office apps and devices, including Word for Mac and iPhone, Outlook Desktop, OneNote for iPad and Mac. Those include new apps and new curricula; a new partnership with LEGO Education to create an online hacking/STEM lesson plan; and an expanded mixed-reality curriculum through a partnership with PBS and NASA. This year, Microsoft will continue expanding the tools on Office for its education customers. It's likely that users will be able to use both HoloLens and Windows Mixed Reality together to collaborate. If any school purchases at least 30 licenses this year they'll also qualify for free teacher training by a certified Microsoft training partner. The company will roll out a new Chemistry update for Minecraft: Education Edition this spring. Microsoft also is making Teams - its Slack competitor - accessible on iOS and Android, as part of its quest to make Teams the "digital hub for the classroom".
