The priority of education is to help students to become independent and creative thinkers by providing them with the resources they need to succeed on the journey. In this panorama, technology serves as an enabler: a tool that helps to open up new possibilities and create engaging learning opportunities.
With over 40 years of experience in developing innovative and easy-to-use devices, Acer is well placed to meet the needs of modern educational institutions. Together, Acer and DG believe that the most valuable part of computing lies in its power to spread knowledge, and we see it as our responsibility to provide today’s generation with the instruments they need to develop 21st-century skills and succeed in the information age.
The goal as an Acer for Education Solutions Centre is to enable teachers and students to create new ways of interacting, by providing reliable and easy-to-use solutions they can trust. By developing innovative technology for the classroom, we help students gain access to new paths of communication and collaboration.
Acer Classroom Manager (ACM) is a feature-rich software solution intuitive and easy to use, designed to meet the needs of teachers, students and technical staff. With integrated management and monitoring of classroom PCs, it makes teaching and learning easier.
ACM allows great flexibility. Teachers can monitor and work with their students individually, in groups, or with the entire class. They can save time by switching on all classroom PCs and launching applications or online contents simultaneously on all devices; they can keep a record of attendance and track students’ activities; they can monitor what students are doing and their progress and they can also test their comprehension and understanding.
For schools, usually with limited resources and little or no dedicated IT staff, managing classroom devices can be a struggle. DADA (Device Agent & Deployment Assistant) is Acer’s solution to this issue. Thanks to DADA, schools can define a set of apps to install or uninstall on a set of Acer’s Android tablets and have it done in a matter of minutes.
DADA also comes in handy to quickly restore learning software that students might have accidentally deleted. DADA not only helps to streamline the management process, but enables schools to keep pace with the fast-changing digital learning landscape.
Acer Smart Touch Kit is a simple yet effective solution designed to turn any classroom into a fun and interactive world. The solution turns any flat surface into an interactive whiteboard that supports finger touch and multi-touch, and allows any opaque object to be used as a pen.
Easy to set up and calibrate, Acer Smart Touch only requires a projector, a notebook and a screen to work, and comes complete with a user-friendly interactive whiteboard software for fun and engaging classes.
