STUDENTS NEED BUSINESS CLASS TOOLS, NOT
RETAIL-GRADE TOYS.

Some schools make the mistake of allowing parents and students to select their own learning devices. This leads to the purchase of consumer-grade products unsuited to the rigours of daily travel and intense use. Unfortunately, unreliable devices can domino into problems that affect student well-being, classroom focus and parent perceptions, as well as increase pressure on IT support staff, teachers, senior management, budgets and more. What do students need most in a learning device? Learners need reliable, durable tools that minimise downtime, maximise productivity and, ideally, prepare them for life beyond the classroom. Dynabooks’s education range delivers, with devices to suit every school, and students from Y5 to Y12.

ONLY WINDOWS PREPARES STUDENTS FOR LIFE BEYOND THE CLASSROOM.

Windows is the platform of choice in much of business and academia. So, students using Windows at school develop skills they can take forward into life at university or in the workforce. As students move up through the school years, Windows provides a platform for powerful commercial applications that let them grow their computing skills. In addition, Windows and Windows applications are optimised for touch and pen input, enabling students to work using the tools that best suit their style and the subject at hand

BYOD VS. CYOD VS SCD: WHICH IS THE BEST MODEL FOR YOUR SCHOOL?

Is there an optimal way to equip your students with learning devices? Should students and parents select learning devices, or should that be the role of school administrators? Three main approaches have evolved over the years:

  • Bring your own device (BYOD).
  • Choose your own device (CYOD).
  • School chosen device (SCD).

WHY ARE RETAIL-GRADE DEVICES A HEADACHE?

Students and parents are bombarded with advertising for consumer-grade devices. These are built to a price-point and designed for at-home use. They are not intended for the demands of all-day learning or for travel to and from school and between classes, with the daily risk of drops and knocks. When these devices fail, the student, teacher and class may all be disrupted. The repair or replacement process can also take weeks, directly affecting the student’s ability to work and learn. Parents and students often overlook these matters when they shop for a device at their local electronics store.

The selection of a device for students is best left to professionals. Some parents may express strong feelings about a particular retail brand or device. However, when schools educate them about the features and benefits of business class devices for education, they usually accept that a cheap or ‘cool’ retail device is not the best way to go. See below for more details about the advantages of ensuring students use business class devices.

MORE REASONS WHY SO MANY AUSTRALIAN SCHOOLS CHOOSE DYNABOOK DEVICES.

Touchscreen input is the new normal. Touchscreen fluency is a given for today’s smartphone savvy students. Each device in Dynabook’s education range features an advanced multi-touch screen, enabling students to interact easily with applications and work flexibly in the way that suits them best.

Pen-input helps students work more effectively. Evidence shows that devices that let students work with a pen as well as a keyboard are transformational in the classroom. They enable students to sketch experiments, write equations, create artworks and type essays with a single device, streamlining workflow and boosting their productivity. Access to a range of resources covering the pedagogy and cognitive benefits of pen-based working and learning are available here .

Dynabook devices are engineered for demanding environments. Students need a computer that’s as rugged as they are. That’s why every device in the Dynabook education range has been tested to MIL-STD-810G, the military standard for drops, vibration, shock, dust, altitude, temperature, humidity and solar radiation. Consequently, they’re engineered to handle the rough and tumble of life at school.

A business class 3-year warranty helps minimise downtime. Dynabook’s education range come with a 3-year warranty, further reassurance that these devices are designed for the rigours of use by teenagers. In the event that a device needs service, Dynabook provides an overnight courier pick-up and return service. Dynabook’s in-country support and repair network and multi-year spare parts stockpile ensures downtime is kept to a minimum.

Advanced management features that help IT staff and students. Dynabook education devices have advanced remote management features built-in. This simplifies fleet administration and support, and helps students who are working at home or on excursions because IT departments can monitor, maintain, repair, update and upgrade machines remotely.

Security: top of mind for schools, and Dynabook. Schools have a duty of care to their students, so security is a critical issue. Most breaches occur because of a lack of care with passwords. Dynabook education devices eliminate this problem by allowing students to log-in using facial recognition and/or a fingerprint reader. In addition, Dynabook is one of the few companies to write its own BIOS, increasing each device’s resistance to hack attacks. Piece of mind, Dynabook keeps SSD data secure with in-country repairs under the Australian and New Zealand data retention laws.

A continuous 29-year commitment to education. Dynabook notebooks first went to school in 1989. Since then, Dynabook has maintained a continuous commitment to the education sector in Australia and New Zealand, consulting regularly with educators and ensuring each generation of devices is shaped to the current and predicted needs of schools.
