ApplianSys and Intel preview the Connected Education Kit

January 26, 2024

ApplianSys is pleased to announce that it previewed the ground-breaking Connected Education Kit to an international audience of International Ministers and Secretaries of Education at BETT UK, the world’s biggest education technology event.

On 24 and 25 January 2024, ApplianSys and Intel invited a select panel of ministers and their teams to an exclusive demonstration of the Connected Education Kit – a strategic breakthrough in device and connectivity technology that transforms the economics and impact of PC labs and allows nations to equip their schools with full-spec computing at a fraction of the cost.

Invited Education Ministers and Secretaries of Education had a chance to see the Connected Education Kit in action in a classroom environment, and were enthusiastic about how it could impact their efforts to transform education outcomes via the e-learning journey. They noted its promise not only to reshape the economics of national PC lab deployment, but also to overcome other barriers to implementation.

“When computer labs and school networks are dependent on local technical support, they inevitably fall out of use – remote schools are the first to fail,” explains Roger Clark, ApplianSys Director of Education Technologies.

“This innovative solution draws on decades of Intel edtech leadership and ApplianSys connectivity solutions to give students sustainable access to full-PC experience computing time, and a reliable connection to the internet using the smallest possible infrastructure footprint.

“Crucially, it also solves the problem of waiting many years to train IT Technicians in every school – remote management technology means that every PC lab in every school can be monitored remotely, without expert technical knowledge on site. Even the most remote schools can benefit from the same the full-PC experience necessary to develop digital literacy at a national scale.

“It was a pleasure to see the reaction from the invited guests. This is game-changing technology that will bring down barriers to e-learning and solve implementation problems with tech roll-outs we have seen education authorities struggle with worldwide for over 20 years.”
