Education Technology that Empowers Students, Educators and Faculty Members
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed education dramatically–schools had to adjust rapidly to the reality of remote learning. Although 15% of U.S. households do not have access to high-speed internet and are unable to participate in the digital classroom, embedding technology in teaching and learning is still the top priority of global educators surveyed, both in high-and low-outcome groups.
Therefore, as students, teachers and faculty members begin to transition back to school, it is imperative that education technology is used to strengthen virtual learning capabilities and remote operations to provide hybrid learning experiences that enable all students to continue high-quality education regardless of global health crises, weather, lack of transportation, or other limiting circumstances.
How Faculty Members Benefit from Technology
The uptick in cyberattacks is causing schools to shut down as sophisticated cyber criminals or state-sponsored hackers perform cyberattacks targeting students’ personally identifiable information (social security numbers, financial information, health records) and in some cases, sensitive research data and intellectual property.
With remote and hybrid learning on the rise, security is more important than ever. School leaders and faculty members are tasked with providing technology that not only inspires teachers to improve curriculum and engage students, but also secures confidential school and student data, and keeps virtual and blended learning environments accessible.
Surface devices come preinstalled with Microsoft Defender Antivirus to mitigate security threats, anywhere, anytime. Schools can stay one step ahead with Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) to detect, investigate and respond to advanced attacks on their networks. With Windows Autopilot—devices get deployed, reset and repurposed, with an experience that is zero touch for IT.
