Global technology leader Lenovo is continuing its partnership with Microsoft to extend the EdVision in Singapore, a far-reaching program designed to prepare local schools for the future through accelerated digital transformation.
Upon the reopening of classes, the local education sector is driven to maintain learning through virtual platforms due to the restrictions brought by the community quarantine and social distancing protocols. As the academe navigates through the challenges of transitioning to e-learning, Lenovo Singapore and Microsoft, through EdVision, help bridge the gap between local educators and students and make education accessible to as many Singaporean students as possible.
Launched in 2021, Lenovo’s EdVision program has been instrumental in improving digital literacy and delivering innovative learning solutions for both in classroom and remote learning.
Digital transformation is revolutionising the way students learn and the careers they will follow in their later lives. The shift towards distance education that was accelerated by the COVID pandemic looks set to stay, with hybrid teaching models becoming an increasingly permanent feature of education. According to a report by the World Economic Forum, more than half (54 percent) of all employees globally will require significant reskilling and upskilling over the next three years. Under the new Lenovo EdVision program, schools in Singapore be provided with free access to online resources that will help them through their education transformation journey, as well as complimentary or subsidized access to the latest solutions in education technology.
Lenovo will work with Microsoft to host webinars and training workshops for teachers and students to provide technology consultation along their digital transformation process. Additionally, solution showcases for higher education would be organized in the coming months to demonstrate the adoption of collaborative learning to further elevate the classroom experience.
“Lenovo understands the challenges schools face in transforming education, and implementing new models of teaching, learning, and collaboration, while managing cost, efficiency, and security,” said Nigel Lee, General Manager of Lenovo
In Singapore, Education partners in the EdVision program will learn about the technologies available today and in the near future that can make education more flexible, tailored, and effective. Lenovo and Microsoft offer a complete set of solutions, designed for convenience of use, ease of understanding, flexibility, and collaboration. Specifically, the Lenovo Smart Classroom will comprise a combination of Lenovo devices and hardware and software from industry-leading partners. This provides a high level of customization to best match the needs of individual schools.
