With an unprecedented pandemic came unprecedented changes, especially around our technology. To keep students learning from home, schools across the world were forced to quickly purchase and deploy countless devices. Unfortunately, much of the technology purchased was a band-aid when we needed stitches: a quick fix disconnected from any long-term strategy to meet student needs.
The time for that much needed follow-up appointment is now. IT has thoroughly transformed education. Hybrid and more personalized learning is here to stay, and the student data reflects it.
77% of teachers believe technology makes them more effective.
71% of principals believe in long-term value of digital tools.
Over 80% of workplace malware attacks hit K-12 school districts.
12% of students suffer from dyslexia.
50% of teaching time is lost managing student assistive technology needs.
52% of U.S. teachers have English as a second language learners.
15-20% of people in the U.S. have a reading disability.
Because students’ learning style has evolved, today’s students are yearning for a more personalized educational experience, one that incorporates flexible learning and innovative technology to foster an environment of creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration.
A flexible learning environment can only be achieved using reliable hardware. Having hastily purchased, inefficient technology can not only cause students stress but also affect academic performance at a time when they are expected to use computers for day-to-day class work, assignments, and online reading.
The time has come to pivot to a sustainable hardware strategy, moving forward with accessible devices that fit your students’ needs and your school’s vision. Because no one else’s vision looks like yours, no one’s solutions should either. Fortunately, SHI can be your concierge to a combination of solutions that are secure, affordable, and easy to deploy and manage.
