Education In The 21st Century
20th January, 2021

Lenovo has quite recently overtaken the personal technology industry, now number 286 on the fortune 500 list, Lenovo is one of the world’s largest PC vendors and the fourth largest smartphone company.

Today, institutions around the world are transforming from educational destinations into educational hubs. Teachers, students, and parents now depend hugely on innovative technology such as the Lenovo Miix 320 2-in-1 with a detachable display, the IdeaPad range, IYoga 520, and software like the Lenovo LanSchool and LanSchool Air, designed to help teachers easily manage classroom technology.

Just a few statistics

The student journey has changed massively.

Learning from home comes with some substantial impacts.

The development of smarter digital technology is allowing greater levels of engagement and participation enabling learners of all ages, abilities, and financial means to fulfil their potential, regardless of their starting point. Powered by AI, VR, IoT, software-defined infrastructure, and big data analytics platforms, Lenovo systems create pathways between students and educators enabling long distance and immersive learning.

Lenovo has established itself as the leading provider of technology for educational development and is driving the transformation from static educational systems into those that can be adapted for the use in flexible and more dynamic environments. The end-to-end solutions that have been developed by Lenovo, are extremely robust and can help schools, colleges, and universities plan, configure, and refresh their systems, increasing efficiency and minimizing downtime.

Having a smart infrastructure will remove the constraints of time, space & location with Lenovo’s distance learning toolkit and virtualised desktop providing a safe, secure, and engaging experience for students and teachers alike, wherever they may be.

As mentioned previously, the cutting edge Lanschool software, is a cloud-based classroom management system for both in-class and remote learning. The software enables teachers to maintain control over students, for example, limiting web access to only approved websites or disabling internet access during tests and quizzes. However, also includes features such as ‘raise hand’ and one-to-one chat ability, in an effort to mimic classroom environment as much as possible.

Because of the research and development work that Lenovo have undertaken they are now in a position, all over the world, where their devices are helping to alleviate the barriers that keep underprivileged and disadvantaged children out of the game.
