Closing the Achievement Gap in Education with Technology

Equal Access to Technology Offers Better Opportunities

As schools work to provide students with the knowledge and skills they need to get to close that gap, providing students with equal access to online tools and programs is critical.

 

How can schools ensure that all students get equal access and make the most out of technologies at school?

 

Schools such as Grove City College realized more than a decade ago that, in order to prepare students for the real world, they’d need to provide each students with a PC to support the 1:1 program. The program was supported by HP infrastructure to control IT costs and provide students with reliable technology that would give them access to information, web tools and more.

 

Thanks to a solid IT infrastructure, Grove City College was able to experience the following improvements:

  • Reduce time needed to provision infrastructure from 50% to 25%
  • Reduce cabling and switching requirements, saving money and time by 90%
  • Reduce server down time by 80%
  • 15:1 reduction in capacity required for backup data, reducing storage costs 

Here's how the New Style of IT can help with your school’s technology needs:

  • Cloud: Choose devices and solutions that help schools migrate to real-time content curation, student assessment, learning management and collaboration
  • Mobility: Make sure students and teachers --  all highly-mobile, nomadic users -- get access to data, applications and have the ability to make connections with peers, at any time, from any place
  • Big Data: Harness the power of data mining and identifying causal relationships among the many variables produced by student information systems, learning management systems and mobile device management (MDM).
  • Security: Ensure that sensitive student and employee data is secure, while also delivering a positive user experience for those with the proper access credentials

"The education landscape is shifting as we see the rise of mobility, social networking, big data, and cloud computing," says Gus Schmedlen, HP's Vice President of Worldwide Education. "Big data raises questions as to how IT will be able to manage structured and unstructured data sets that are too large to process using traditional data processing applications. Add to this picture an unpredictable global economy, scaled-back IT resources, aging infrastructures, and a growing pressure to deliver results instantly, and it’s easy to see that IT is at a critical juncture. The time to update IT is now."
