How HP Education Solutions Can Transform Classrooms

The World Economic Forum suggests that 42% of the skills required to perform most jobs will have shifted significantly in businesses worldwide by 2022. We’re currently witnessing the transitional period from traditional curricula to technological and innovative skill sets being embraced for future employment requirements. The value and flexibility that virtual classrooms offer has recently been highlighted as students and teachers have had to rely on e-learning during the global pandemic. HP Education Solutions provides this technological environment that allows mobility and fast access to curricula and critical information for students and teachers when most needed.  

 

Learning for everyone, everywhere

 

HP Education Solutions provide a combination of hardware, software, services, and consulting. The scope of these solutions span educational institutions from head office to the library, and from the classroom to the lab. The classroom no longer has to be regarded as a room with four walls. Instead, virtual classrooms are paving the way to the future and have never before been more accessible to our future leaders and their educators.

 

Expand your tools and their minds

Education technology provides an opportunity to transform schools into dynamic digital campuses. Technology is the catalyst that can convert traditional learning environments into institutions that can uncover excellence in students and faculty members. HP’s customised and fully integrated solutions can assist in the following ways:

  • Transform traditional paper-based processes and reduce the cost of paperwork relating to the management of institutions. 
  • Innovate your communications, marketing, and production printing processes to gain customers and to contain costs.
  • Control your imaging and printing environment. Greater ease and efficiency to address document and data security, record-keeping, archiving, or document retrieval.

 

Helping you prepare for remote teaching

HP Education Solutions provides technology built specifically for schools. Students have become accustomed to playing and learning on devices at home. This means that the incorporation of the latest technology with a variety of learning activities is more likely to spark their interest and retain their attention.  Education technology also empowers teachers, as it allows them to create collaborative instructional environments. Through technology, they can reinvent learning that engages students at all levels, while keeping the class focused and on task.

 

The Campus of the Future

 

HP is working with colleges and universities to build the Campus of the Future – which is envisioned to be a secure and collaborative learning environment. HP has partnered with top universities across the globe to further research into cutting-edge technology in classrooms. Through blending technology and reality to create these hybrid campuses, HP believes technology will help campuses improve operational efficiency. By incorporating 3D printing and Extended Reality (XR), the Campus of the Future creates a platform for the imagination to take flight in Higher Education megatrend areas of:

  • Student success: Focusing on graduation, engagement, and employability.
  • Academic reputation: Attracting students, faculty, grants, and funding.
  • Operational efficiency: Low TCO for assets and management.
  • Risk management: Avoiding costly security disasters.

 

HP Worldwide

In recognition of the shift towards the uptake in technological resources around the world, the HP Worldwide Warranty provides standard global coverage on HP products in the countries in which the products are being used.

  • Drop tested to 122cm higher than most desks.
  • Have spill-resistant keys that keep them safe against minor spills of up to 350ml.

For students

Technology can help students develop core and in-demand skills that are required in today’s rapidly evolving workplace. By incorporating technology initiatives in education, teachers can spark an interest in students to develop lifelong pursuits. Not only does technology encourage students to do better, but it also equips them with the creative and cognitive tools to thrive in the future workforce.

 

For teachers

Technology can reshape the roles of teachers, without diminishing their necessity in the education sector. It allows teachers to escape from conventional techniques, allowing them to optimally spend their time in the following ways:

  1. Creating projects in which students work together
  2. Facilitating peer-to-peer learning so that students can assist each other
  3. Engaging with students in ways that better match individuals’ learning modes

 

For schools

Investing in education technology will require financial resources where institutions will have to determine whether the budget will allow for such a rollout. HP offers a value of investment (VOI) analysis to help schools that are in the process of considering education technology. The analysis will help determine whether the time and investment required to implement the technology are justifiable. It further also assesses whether the financial layout will help your students improve and achieve certain educational goals. 

An important aspect to keep in mind is that technology is powerful, but to reach its full value in classrooms, school leaders and educators have to integrate it thoughtfully into the curriculum.

 

Small size, big performance, affordable price

 

HP Education Solutions function on powered up processing and have adopted the vision of small design that offers big versatility. HP believes that this allows students and teachers to work confidently and with greater speed throughout the day while ensuring that the system is easy to manage. 

HP’s multimodal learning offers more than one way to learn, which is why HP devices come with different learning modes for tailor-made educational experiences. HP education solutions offer total access to true learning that will deliver meaningful outcomes and provide an exciting new way to teach and to learn. Students, teachers, and schools will be equipped for innovation with technology that thrives on creating meaningful outcomes for every student.
