    Tablets for schools - Intel Classmate solutions from VeryPC

    Hi EduGeek!

    VeryPC have put together a range of great value tablets, 2-in-1 convertible and netbook aimed specifically at the education market. We are offering both Android and Windows devices and they all come with a broad suite of Intel® Education Solutions software designed to enhance students' learning experience in the classroom. I've posted an official launch article in the news section of the VeryPC website, where it looks a bit prettier, but I thought I'd also share it with our buddies on EduGeek directly.

    With a low cost Edupack accessories bundle upgrade including thermal probe and microscope lens attachment. VeryPC Mobile Education Solutions also benefit from a suite of Intel Education Solutions apps designed to enhance your students’ learning.

    Mobile devices like tablets and 2-in-1s are rapidly becoming a significant feature of the education landscape, appearing in more and more classrooms throughout the UK, and with good reason. I believe that handheld devices bring students closer to the information they need and provide immediate access to educational tools that enhance their learning experience.

    The uptake has been clear to us here at VeryPC. More and more of our education customers have been asking us about mobile devices, and that is a trend that we can’t ignore if we are to continue providing the hardware products and solutions that you demand from us. With this in mind I asked our product development team to research and test numerous options. We have selected a range of great value, well featured, robust and versatile Intel Classmate products to launch our Mobile Education Solutions range.

    VeryPC Mobile Education Solutions come in 3 different types of device (Click to go to the product page):




    Rugged
    VeryPC Mobile Solutions are built to handle the inevitable knocks and spills that will happen during the normal course of events in the classroom. The tough outer cases are wipe clean and drop resistant to 50cm. Classmate tablets and 2-in-1 have their ports tucked away behind a rubberised push shut cover to guard against liquids getting inside.

    The power and familiarity of touch
    Today’s kids are growing up with touchscreen devices all around them. Their mobile phones and tablets at home all have touch. The actions of tapping, swiping and gesture control are a digital grammar that they start learning the first time they pick up a device. The process of following information by tapping through it and creating work simply by drawing their fingers across the screen brings children closer to the subjects they are learning and the work they make in school.

    Touch has an immediacy to it that operating systems like Windows 8.1 and Android, mobile apps and many newer Windows applications are designed to capitalise on, improving user experience and therefore making learning more intuitive and fun.

    Learning accessories and software
    Each VeryPC Classmate device has a low cost optional Edupack upgrade. The Edupack upgrade includes a thermal probe and microscope lens that clips to the webcam so your students can collect scientific data and capture magnified imagery direct to the tablet. These accessories are designed to work in conjunction with the pre-installed suite of Intel Education Solutions applications, adding many enhanced functions to your Classmate mobile devices.



    Intel Education Solutions
    All VeryPC Mobile Education Solutions Intel Classmate devices have a free suite of Intel Education Solutions software which augment the educational functionality of the devices. Note taking, art creation, video, data collection and classroom management are all covered for both Windows and Android (click application to download more info):

    Not just single user devices
    Most Network Managers will agree that distribution and account control of Android devices in a Microsoft Windows network can be tricky. That’s why 2 of our Mobile Education Solutions devices, the 2-in-1 Classmate W21 and Classmate Netbook are designed for Windows. With Windows Professional and Windows server working together, you get all the benefits of user accounts and administrative control via active directory, domain join and group policy.

    Find out more
    It won’t surprise you to learn that I think our Classmate based Mobile Education Solutions are one of the best suite of mobile and handheld devices designed for learning around. The feedback we’ve had from our customers so far supports this. To read more and look at the specs of the devices, use the links below:

    Classmate devices are available in our webshop. Bear in mind that educational and volume purchase customers get a significant discount from our online published prices, so contact one of our sales specialists if you are interested in buying Mobile Education Solutions for your school.

    Many thanks for reading. Here’s to taking learning mobile.

    - Andy Hopton, Managing Director, VeryPC.

    Hi VeryPC team!

    These look great! As very satisfied Broadleaf customers when we look at tablets/netbooks for the Reception end of school (not for a year or so unfortunately!) we will definitely give these serious consideration.

    All the best
