In these trying times, kids have to deal with a lot of stuff they weren’t prepared for: a significant loss of weeks of education, damaged GPAs, and no assurance they’ll be going back in the fall.
However, some schools were able to pivot because they already had implemented remote programs that were mature, easily implemented, and designed by teachers for teachers. That’s because some school districts have a critical mass of students who are widely spread geographically, or for other reasons can’t make it to school.
These schools deployed LanSchool, a little known tool and service that Lenovo recently — perhaps prophetically — bought. As a result, they are doing fine.
I’ll share some observations about this approach to education and close with my product of the week: Lenovo’s new VR Headset that offers the performance and ruggedness needed for use in education.
