Helping Students Succeed, One PC at a Time
This week, more than 18,000 teachers, teacher educators and other education-industry professionals are attending ISTE 2014, one of the world’s largest education expos. We will also be in attendance—as one of the 500 exhibitors on hand—to showcase how our innovative pan-HP offerings for elementary and secondary education solutions can foster student success.
At HP, we believe that everyone has the right to a quality education. We also know that by working with educational institutions, teachers and parents to build effective solutions and ensure that those tools are being used in the best possible ways, we are helping to achieve meaningful outcomes for us all.
We are committed to helping schools prepare students for greater achievement and success. By acting as a trusted partner to academic institutions, and leveraging our unmatched breadth of products, services and support options, we are helping to:
- Raise student engagement and graduation rates;
- Help students in emerging countries develop skills that are in demand; and
- Prepare a skilled workforce that is ready for the jobs of tomorrow.
Our commitments in action
Here are some of the ways that we are helping schools foster student success:
- This morning, at ISTE, we announced that we are working with Baltimore County Public Schools to distribute HP Elite PCs to more than 120,000 students and teachers. This initiative was established to advance the school system’s digital learning program, Students and Teachers Accessing Tomorrow (S.T.A.T.), and its mission to equip every student with critical 21st-century skills.
- We’re also helping Hillsborough County Public Schools support students in its pre-collegiate STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) academy. Students are using HP Z Workstations to learn the skills they need to become engineers, game designers, scientists and more.
- Through HP Teaching with Technology, we’re helping K-12 teachers integrate technology more effectively into their teaching practice. This free, five-module course contains a rich variety of multimedia learning activities and resources designed to help teachers impact student achievement.
