With 2020 in full swing, there is a growing expectation for schools to integrate IT within their curriculum.
This change is to ensure students have the opportunity to become digitally capable individuals and build their skills beyond simply consuming technology.
According to Education Minister, Hon Chris Hipkins, “the digital curriculum is about teaching children how to design their own digital solutions and become creators of, not just users of, digital technologies, to prepare them for the modern workforce.”
With so much infrastructure available, it can be difficult to identify what IT can best support your school and student’s needs.
At New Era, we’ve compiled 3 ways HP Z Workstations can help facilitate student learning outcomes and enhance curriculum.
1. High-Speed Performance
The environment of a classroom is naturally fast-paced, so you need IT that’s going to keep up with the demands of daily lessons. Designed for high-speed performance, HP Z Workstations can support professional software applications needed to execute digital projects. With easy setup and servicing, students get the opportunity to utilise state-of-the-art infrastructure while gaining experience across different IT programs.
Hardware used to access digital platforms daily must be secure to keep mission-critical data protected. With advanced security features, HP Z Workstations are equipped with HP Sure Start, the industry’s first self-healing BIOS and intrusion detection. Have peace of mind knowing students are getting the most out of IT while combatting potential cyber-attacks.
3. VR Capacity
Virtual Reality (VR) is slowly gaining traction across the education space, with school’s across NZ starting to utilise it within the classroom. With the potential of VR taking off, having infrastructure that can support it means you’re one step ahead. HP Z Workstations are VR ready, with high-performance processors and graphics cards that bring virtual experiences to life. With the capacity to implement VR, teachers can increase student engagement and create new ways to deliver subject material.
For any school, integrating the right technology can have its challenges, that’s why it’s important to have an IT partner that can support you through every stage of the process.
