Intels Classmate PC i ny version

Intels Classmate PC i ny version

Til den store forbrugerelektronikmesse i Las Vegas, CES, kunne Intel fremvise en ny version af Classmate PCen, en bærbar pc designet til grundskoleelever. Den nye model fungerer både som en normal bærbar pc og som en tablet-pc med trykfølsom skærm. Den skal ikke erstatte den tidligere Classmate PC-model, men være et alternativ.

På CES kunne Intel også præsentere Intel® Learning Series, som er et initiativ, der integrerer hardware, software og servicer specifikt beregnet til uddannelse. Intel Learning Series skal fungere som en fælles referenceramme for virksomheder, der vil levere totale uddannelsesløsninger baseret på Intels Classmate PC.


INTERNATIONAL CONSUMER ELECTRONICS SHOW, Las Vegas, Jan. 9, 2009 – Local computer manufacturers unveiled the Intel-powered convertible classmate PC designs, joining the existing clamshell design to meet the variety of elementary school students’ needs worldwide.

The new flexible design, based on Intel Corporation technologies, converts instantly from a clamshell to a tablet mode with a touch screen to allow for a more intuitive classroom experience. According to research with students and teachers, the 180-degree swivel design, rotational camera and touch screen encourage flexible classroom interaction and natural collaboration. Both the convertible and the clamshell classmate PC designs are based on ethnographic studies and feedback from pilot programs conducted in both mature and emerging markets.

Intel is also introducing the Intel® Learning Series, an initiative that integrates hardware, software and services designed specifically for education. The Intel Learning Series supports technology companies that customize products and services in their own country, innovating in and around the classmate PC reference design to enhance and improve students’ experiences with technology. Working together, the technology ecosystem delivers customized products and services to meet the unique needs of education worldwide. The Intel Learning Series provides a common framework for these companies to communicate their unique roles and values in delivering the total solution to education. Local PC manufacturers will offer both the new Intel-powered convertible classmate PC and the existing clamshell design to students and teachers.  The PCs will be preloaded with student-friendly software through support from the Intel Learning Series.

The addition of the new convertible PC will coexist with the very successful clamshell design, which is being used in Portugal’s Magalhães (Magellan) Initiative – the Portuguese government’s country-wide program to provide PCs to all elementary school children via the local computer manufacturer and telecom service providers.  The Magalhães Initiative is  one of most comprehensive educational technology programs in the world and other countries, like Venezuela, are working with Portugal to extend this model for their country.  The Initiative reflects the scale of programs targeted for the Intel Learning Series.

Intel also unveiled its collaboration with JP Sá Couto, the local OEM in Portugal, and a local design company, CEIIA, to develop a new design of the Magalhães PC that will include features such as unique reading and writing capabilities, a larger screen, more memory for local content and additional connectivity options such as 3G and WiMAX. These new features meet the unique needs of Portugal and will be offered in addition to the existing solutions as part of the Magalhães Program.

 “Education is one of the best ways to improve the future for individuals, villages, or nations,” said Lila Ibrahim, general manager of the Intel Emerging Markets Platform Group, which developed the classmate PC reference design based on ethnographic research and supports the Intel Learning Series. “There are 1.3 billion school-age children around the world and of those only 5 percent have access to a PC or the Internet. The IT industry has a huge opportunity to contribute to how technology can improve students’ learning and students’ lives.  With our announcement today, Intel continues its long-standing commitment to advancing education through technology to transform lives around the world.”

Built on Intel® architecture and powered by the Intel® Atom™ processor, these purpose-built netbooks provide an affordable and functional PC to support a wide variety of classroom applications and activities. Designed with students in mind, the classmate PC is small and light enough for a child to easily carry. Equipped with a water-resistant keyboard, the classmate PC is also “backpack friendly” – able to withstand bumping in a backpack and accidental drops by students. In tablet mode, the convertible classmate PC screen has a “palm rejection” feature that is designed to allow the child to write more naturally by resting their palm on the touch screen. It also includes education-oriented software and applications from software and content vendors in the Intel Learning Series.
