HP will supply its Elite PCs – on Microsoft Windows 8.1 operating systems — to more than 120,000 students and teachers at Baltimore County Public Schools (BCPS).
BCPS will distribute the HP EliteBook Revolve 810 G2 — a combination notebook computer and tablet using Windows 8.1 — to all teachers and to students in grades one through three in its 10 lighthouse schools.
HP desktop PCs and charging carts will also be used in classrooms, offices and libraries.
The company said HP EliteBook PC comes with a keyboard, touch screen, high-definition 11.6-inch diagonal display screen, and Windows 8.1 operating system.
Baltimore County Public Schools’ (BCPS) digital learning program called Students and Teachers Accessing Tomorrow (S.T.A.T.) initiative will include training for staff, students and the school community about the transition from traditional classroom instruction to a digital-learning landscape.
For any K-12 teachers looking to integrate technology more effectively into their teaching practice, HP offers a free, five-module course. HP Teaching with Technology offers strategies, tips and good ideas that teachers can use immediately.
