  4. 4. Power up your school with Dell connected learning. Dell connected learning for schools is a strategy that brings together every member of the education system so everyone is empowered to play a key role in its success. For more than 25 years, our dedicated education specialists have listened to our customers to learn about the unique set of challenges and opportunities they face in their local communities. As a result of our dialogues, we’ve specially designed a broad portfolio of customised products and services for education that easily integrate into existing environments, including the classroom, the data centre and the home. A place where students want to learn Our ultimate goal is to help school systems create teaching and learning environments in which students have access to the technologies and tools fundamental to fulfilling their potential, feeding their desire to learn and fuelling their ambition to succeed. Two key focus areas • The Connected Classroom addresses the various environments in which teaching and learning take place. • The Connected Infrastructure addresses the IT infrastructure and strategy for the education system as a whole. Learn more about Dell connected learning for schools at Find the latest deals online at The Connected Classroom By infusing technology into the classroom environment, teachers have an opportunity to engage students in new ways and enhance the learning process. The Dell™ Connected Classroom helps simplify learning and make technology easy to use. It empowers teachers with the latest tools – such as Dell OptiPlex™ desktops and Dell Latitude™ laptops with 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors – and professional skills necessary to create a rich, interactive learning environment in which students can more effectively prepare for success in the digital age. The Connected Infrastructure At many schools, a significant proportion of the IT budget is spent on day-to-day maintenance of outdated computers, servers and storage systems that perform slowly and consume excessive amounts of energy. That leaves less budget for new, innovative classroom technologies. The Connected Infrastructure offers a pragmatic approach to drive greater operational and cost efficiencies through standardisation, simplification and automation. By transforming the data centre – partly through the deployment of Intel® Xeon® processor based servers – school leaders can reduce maintenance costs and free up resources for classroom technology that positively impacts teaching and learning. Enhance traditional teaching practices • Engage students with robust digital content • Assess student progress in real time • Further teaching skills through professional learning Facilitate student-centred learning • Inspire creativity and critical thinking • Interact and promote collaboration • Enable individualised and differentiated learning Establish anytime, anywhere learning • Extend learning beyond the classroom walls • Make the home a learning environment • Provide access to content, curriculum, and collaboration tools Simplify infrastructure management • Steer a greater portion of the IT budget to the classroom • Get needed technology into he classroom faster • Empower school success through IT simplification Design an intelligent infrastructure • Gain greater efficiency using the latest server and storage products • Support a growing number of devices easily • Effectively support classrooms with minimal IT impact Deploy intelligent data management • Prepare for storage as student portfolios grow • Keep critical education information available 24/7 • Maximise cost efficiency of stored data Connected learning for schools Elements of The Connected Classroom Dell recommends Windows. eInstruction Mobi™ View XPS™ 13 Ultrabook™ Laptop XPS 10 Tablet eInstruction DualBoard™ Whiteboard Dell C1765nfw Multifunction Colour Printer Latitude™ 10 Essential Tablet LapSafe® Mini Mentor™ Trolley With Access Point Dell S500wi Ultra Short Throw Projector Call your Education team at Call lines open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm Focus areas 6 70844 444 3017

  6. 6. Dell Case Stories Read more case studies at School saves on hardware with new infrastructure. Ranked as one of the best schools in the United Kingdom for academic progress, The Westgate School provides secondary education to around 930 full-time students. IT is central to the continuing success of the school and its pupils. Hampton School widens access to classroom ICT with virtual desktop infrastructure. Hampton School is widening access to classroom ICT with a virtual desktop infrastructure strategy that relies on Dell Wyse’s innovative Xenith zero clients to deliver the best possible end user experience with no management headaches. Hampton School is an independent school for boys and has 1,200 pupils between the ages of 11–18. The Middlesex based school was founded in 1557 and is steeped in history. However, the school embraces new technologies and takes a very innovative approach to how pupils can use information technology to develop and learn throughout their time at Hampton. Technological need With more subjects becoming dependent on IT, The Westgate School needed an easy-to-manage infrastructure that could accommodate growth without additional hardware costs. Solution The school chose to work with Dell Premier Partner Krome to implement a virtualized server infrastructure based on Dell EqualLogic storage. It also updated its desktop infrastructure. Benefits • School saves around £20,000 on hardware • Flexible IT environment can scale to accommodate future growth • Physical servers reduced from six to two • Significant return on investment achieved in months • New servers deployed in minutes • Disaster recovery provides peace of mind Application areas • Disaster Recovery • End User Computing • Server Solutions • Storage Solutions • Virtualization Technological need Overcoming variable performance of PCs. Solution Xenith zero clients, built to maximise Citrix desktop virtualisation technologies. Benefits Easy device management via remote support. Students enjoy a great end user experience with applications performing quickly. Greater energy efficiency. Application areas • Desktop Virtualization • Cloud client computing Call your Education team at Call lines open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm The Westgate School case study The Hampton School case study Technology at work: Software VMware® vSphere™ 4 Hardware - Dell™ PowerEdge™ R710 Servers - Dell OptiPlex™ 780 and 790 Desktops - Dell EqualLogic™ PS series iSCSI Storage arrays Technology at work: • Dell Wyse Xenith • Dell Wyse Xenith Pro (future IT strategy) • Citrix desktop virtualisation technologies "With a £20,000 reduction in hardware costs, the school has already seen a sizeable return on its investment. We’ve also seen significant savings thanks to our more efficient Dell-based IT infrastructure. The Dell solution offered a simple, scalable infrastructure, allowing us to plan ahead, and still have the flexibility to react to a sudden change in circumstances. We needed to make sure we could provide students and teachers with a high-quality, responsive IT setup and we realised that our manual backup processes weren’t going to be sufficient anymore. We wanted to implement a storage and backup infrastructure that would stabilise our environment and accommodate our plans for future growth. We knew that the most effective solution would be to make the move from physical servers to a virtualized infrastructure based on VMware vSphere 4." Chris Green, IT Manager, The Westgate School "The PCs were taking up too much time to manage and once one was fixed another one would break again. It was these ongoing issues that led us to begin researching the alternatives. With our goal of getting technology into the IT suites that fully supported our teachers with no drawbacks or issues for them or us, the total plug and play capability of the Xeniths really suits our requirements. The Xeniths are extremely easy and quick to set up and once you are ready to use them then there are no more issues. A high point of the migration to zero clients for me was the response of our ICT teaching department. One of the ICT teachers said it is one of the best things that have happened at the school.” Ian Trevena, IT & Network Manager, Hampton School Dell recommends Windows 8. 10 110844 444 3017
