HP has announced ‘Classroom of the Future’ an integrated solution for education providers, consisting of HP’s PC hardware and a suite of digital pedagogy enabling software.
The ‘Classroom of the Future’ solution offers smart, education-focused hardware coupled with cutting-edge software to support new teaching methodologies and empower all the key stakeholders in the classroom. These are bundled through HP’s specially designed Education Edition products, such as the HP ProBook x360 notebook, which is lightweight but rugged with long battery life and comes with collaboration and creation tools through Classera, advanced security and monitoring technology through TechPulse, as well as a classroom management software Classroom Manager.
The ‘Classroom of the Future’ solution ensures a virtuous pedagogy loop by empowering all the key stakeholders in the classroom with:
- Student Centricity: Classera’s learning software is an essential tool that engages young students through an interactive and digitized learning environment. All available content has been designed specifically to cater to students’ learning needs, tailored to their age groups.
- Teacher Empowerment: HP’s ‘Classroom Manager’ allows teachers to create a digital learning environment for students, while tracking progress in real-time, monitoring student activities and evaluating individual and group performances. The teacher can restrict website access by lesson, class, and date.
- IT Governance: ‘TechPulse’ is a diagnostics tool that is used for predictive analytics for IT support, management, security, and planning. The software is designed to maximize device performance, ensure security compliance, and optimize device allocation.
In addition to this new solution, HP has a series of educational programs such as Campus of the Future, HP Learning Studios and HP LIFE that accelerate blended learning.
