There has been a rapid transition in education, from classroom learning for the majority of students to remote learning. This unprecedented shift has revealed many challenges that further expand the homework gap, including lack of access to the devices or connectivity needed to keep pace with today’s methods of learning and teaching. Approximately 1.3 billion of the world’s school-age children do not have internet connection in their homes1 and ~70 percent of students around the world have been impacted by school closures related to the pandemic.2 Qualcomm Technologies is helping to solve these issues faced by teachers and students alike with education systems powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon compute platforms.
Qualcomm Technologies is leading the charge with key industry leaders to solve for the needs of a rapidly accelerated digital transformation. We’ve been working with these leaders over the past year to help businesses
High-quality learning experiences for students
With 4G LTE and 5G connectivity built right into the laptop, students can connect to the internet when there isn’t a home internet connection, even in more remote areas lacking broadband service.
Powerful image and audio capabilities built right into the Snapdragon compute platform can help ensure that, when students are learning remotely, the experience can be as if they were in the classroom. Poor quality audio and video — garbled sound or blurry images — have proven to be an obstacle to remote learning, sometimes making it difficult to understand the ideas being conveyed by both teachers and students alike. It can be particularly frustrating for children to convey their ideas and feel as though they are being heard when faced with audio and video issues. By delivering some of the best audio and video capabilities available, Snapdragon devices remove these barriers.
It can be difficult for students to sit still in a class setting all day. That issue does not disappear when they’re in a remote learning situation
Flexible deployment and robust security for teachers and administrators
There are a wide variety of Snapdragon platforms designed to meet the diverse needs of education, from entry-level Snapdragon 7c to premium designs with the Snapdragon 8cx Gen 2 compute platform, Windows 10 PCs
Supporting modern device management solutions, administrators will enjoy the ease of deployment and management of devices based on Snapdragon compute platforms to quickly get systems where they are needed and ensure they stay secure and productive.
