Intel Showcases Education Solutions for All Kinds of Classrooms at ISTE 2014

Intel Corporation announced that three customers launched products based on its new education-specific product reference designs this week at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) 2014 Conference in Atlanta. Created by Intel® Education, these reference designs draw on more than a decade of experience in student learning, providing customers with shorter development time, customization capabilities and the latest technologies, features and software. The three products are the Panasonic 3E*, the CTL Education Chromebook* and the M&A Education Chromebook*.

Designed for active learning and active students, the Panasonic 3E is a tablet that comes with a detachable keyboard to deliver laptop capabilities. Panasonic is the first company to offer Intel’s purpose-built 2 in 1 reference design as a device for K-12 students.

The Panasonic 3E ships with a comprehensive software bundle of essential K-12 applications that makes learning more active and teachers’ lives easier. It also features a thermometer probe, on-board cameras and an add-on lens that turn science and mathematics into hands-on, highly engaging, STEM-centered learning.

Based on Intel® Education’s reference design for Chromebook, the CTL Education Chromebook and M&A Education Chromebook are lightweight, easy to use, and can withstand daily student use – in class, at home and anywhere between. Developed for students, the Chromebooks feature a rugged, easy-carry handle; rotatable camera; optional snap-on lens for science exploration; and non-slip texture.

The Education Chromebooks are equipped with Intel Inside® for the best Chromebook experience, providing students with long battery life for all-day learning and the best ability to multitask, open multiple tabs and support offline learning. Intel is investing in the Chrome ecosystem to ensure that Intel® architecture offers the best experience in a Chrome browser.

“These new reference designs demonstrate the diversity of Intel’s portfolio of education solutions,” said John Galvin, vice president of the Sales and Marketing Group and general manager of Intel Education. “Instead of taking a one-size-fits-all approach to transforming education, we provide a variety of different tools – including devices, software, content and professional development services – to ensure that school districts can choose the right solution to achieve student success.”
