The Hämeenkylä school in Vantaa is one of Finland’s pioneering schools in digital, and for this reason it was decided to deeply integrate technology into the learning process, to allow students get 21st Century skills that are necessary for a rapidly evolving world of work. “The use of technology is today an essential part of learning, and will be even more critical in the future” said Pasi Majasaari, the Principal of Hämeenkylä School.
This is why they chose to equip the students with Acer TravelMate B118, a durable and versatile device able to adapt to all kinds of needs thanks to its robustness. It also provides an excellent usage experience thanks to some features specifically designed for the schools of today: for example, the smart Acer Active Stylus pen and the water-proof keyboard.
At Hämeenkylä, students complete math and physics exercises using OneNote platform, they use Paint 3D to study geometry and use different apps that allow them to study with new, more effective and fun approaches, such as Minecraft Education. At the same time, teachers can monitor students progress in real time, and thus improve their own work, allowing them to provide students a more personalized support.
“Cooperating with Microsoft and Acer has already significantly benefited us” also said Majasaari, “and we expect more from this collaboration in the future”.
