If you are responsible for setting up PCs and devices for a school or school district, make sure you attend our one-hour "Ask Microsoft Anything" (AMA) event on Thursday, August 31st from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time.

If you aren't familiar with the concept, an AMA is a live online question-and-answer event similar to a "YamJam" on Yammer or an "Ask Me Anything" on Reddit. During the Windows 10 for Education AMA, members of the Windows engineering and product teams will be on hand to answer your questions, listen to feedback, and share best practices around:

  • Recommended configurations and deployment best practices for Windows 10 devices used in educational environments
  • Device provisioning and the Set up School PCs app
  • Managing devices using Microsoft Intune for Education
  • Microsoft Store for Education
  • Microsoft School Data Sync
  • The differences between Windows 10 Pro for Education, Windows 10 Pro, and Windows 10 S

I have questions. How do I participate?

Add the event to your calendar and join us live on August 31st in the Windows 10 space in the Windows 10 Tech Community. At 9:00 a.m., we'll open the space for questions.
