Traditional lecturing and note-taking are becoming more ineffective with tech-savvy digital natives. However, the right combination of educational technologies can help teachers get these students more interested in learning. With Ricoh's K-12 Learning Innovation Services, we can design classroom technology that raises student engagement, enhances collaboration, increases teacher and student productivity, impresses digital natives with more innovative learning environments, and helps to protect documents, data and other sensitive information.
In today’s fast-paced world, classroom technology needs to appeal to tech-savvy digital natives with diverse learning styles. Our education consulting team can work with you to get a thorough understanding of your school’s specific needs. Then we can design and implement classroom technologies that help get your students excited about learning.
Our advanced classroom collaboration solutions include Visual Communication Services that help with distance learning — providing video access to teachers in remote areas as well as international students. We can also seamlessly integrate new classroom technologies with the solutions you already have in place. If you’re looking to implement one to one computing throughout your school district, our team can help to integrate ChromebooksTM, iPads® or other devices within your current infrastructure.
In addition, you can instantly boost collaboration and improve classroom management with Ricoh interactive whiteboards (IWB) — also known as interactive flat panel displays (IFPD):
With so much to learn to prepare for higher education and the workforce, and so little time during each school day, students and teachers need to stay as productive as possible. With our IT Services for Education, we can support and maintain your IT infrastructure to help reduce desktop, printer and network downtime — minimizing interruptions to teacher and student workflows.
We can also help you take advantage of the proliferation of mobile devices by giving teachers and students remote access to applications and learning platforms from laptops, tablets and smartphones with our Cloud Connected Education Solution and Cloud & IT Services. The cloud let's you empower students by letting them learn in ways that complement how they like to work, such as:
The flexibility of our cloud services can also help you find additional ways to improve the learning experience — including using Google ClassroomTM to make managing assignments easier for teachers, providing remote access to Microsoft® SharePoint® to enable real-time digital collaboration, and more.
With cloud access to a variety of software programs and platforms from both school-provided and personal devices, there are many possibilities for classroom innovations. This digital access provides students with the extra benefit of learning new technologies to help prepare them for future jobs while simultaneously learning the core curriculum.
Ricoh can also help you save money by supporting open educational resources (OER) that improve teaching, learning, assessing and researching processes. We can also provide classroom technology that utilizes Khan Academy and other free educational resources that help with core curriculum learning — providing digital natives with the high-tech learning environments they’ve come to expect:
Our education consulting team can help design classrooms of the future and meeting rooms for faculty and staff that feature monitors on the walls, iPads® that are wirelessly connected to wall monitors, separated collaboration spaces that are powered by technology for group projects, and so much more.
