Today's students are always connected, always learning, both on and off school grounds. For school leaders using education technology to boost student engagement and retention, a strategic combination of the right devices for learning and teaching, as well as a robust infrastructure to support devices, protect and secure data, and give all access to data, content and apps is key. The right technology can help students develop real-world, career-ready skills. It can empower educators to manage classroom operations efficiently and give them access to data and content to personalize learning for their students. Intel solutions for a meaningful 360⁰ learning experience can have a significant, sustainable impact on student success.
