Online Learning Minute: How Lenovo’s LanSchool Backs a Holistic Approach to Successful EdTech

 

On this episode of MarketScale’s Online Learning Minute, host Brian Runo was once again joined by Lenovo Director, Global Education Solutions Rich Henderson.

This go-around, the duo dove into the big picture of providing education technology, how Lenovo, the No. 1 global technology provider for education devices, is setting itself apart in the space, and how new innovations and focuses on software and service might help shape the future of education. In particular, Henderson said that access to technology and devices is the first step, but that EdTech initiatives can’t succeed if they aren’t backed up by attention to security and the provision of software and services.

To that end, Lenovo offers LanSchool, a comprehensive for technology management in K-12 and higher education.

With LanSchool, school’s are empowered to meet IT challenges head on by minimizing distractions and improving control, increasing collaboration, and more.

By providing an assessment mode to lock devices during tests, real-time thumbnail monitoring of all student screens, keystroke monitoring and more, LanSchool elevates the entire educational effort.

“The reason why this classroom management is important is, even in a classroom setting – let’s say you’ve got up to 30 students in a classroom, each one with their own devices and working on things in the classroom,” Henderson said. “It’s not so much the vision that the teacher will sit behind their desk and monitor what students are looking at.

“It’s more the ability for the teacher to push content out to the students to get those students on task and help drive the lesson forward.”
