SANAKO has introduced a fully mobile IT-based cross-curricular teaching solution – the Wireless IT-Classroom.
The mobile solution consists of a laptop cart complete with wireless access point and SANAKO Study 500 teaching software available for installation. Optional laptop PCs can be purchased from a preferred supplier. This ingenious Wireless IT-Classroom allows teachers to quickly and easily set up a modern IT-based learning environment in any space, even in ordinary classrooms with no IT facilities. In institutions with wireless environments, the laptop cart with PCs pre-programmed with Study 500 software can expand the reach of technology-based learning even further.
The cart itself can accommodate up to 24 laptops, and is compatible with nearly all of the products from leading laptop manufacturers. It comes equipped with power supply and security features and laptops must be outfitted with wireless network cards (WLAN 11g) to offer the optimal wireless connectivity for use with Study 500. Teachers can simply wheel the trolley into the desired teaching area, distribute laptops to students and IT-based teaching can begin – no need to wait for expensive and time-consuming furniture and hardware installation.
The wireless cart and teaching software allow Sanako and its partners to give educational institutions access to a complete solution for technology-based teaching, including cart, teaching software, wireless network and laptops, or any combination of elements as needed. This is the ideal solution for institutions that want to maximize their IT investments – the mobile laptop classroom can be readily shared among many teachers and learning groups in an easy and convenient fashion. Customers get an important bonus in being able to fully secure their mobile teaching environment with doors that lock independently.
SANAKO Study 500 is an inexpensive entry-level solution that creates a stimulating and interactive teaching environment, which makes use of Internet and IT resources to bring any lesson to life! It can be easily modified to meet specific teaching needs, simply by installing additional software modules that introduce supplementary learning or teaching activities.
