  3. 3. 3A – HP PROJECT I- Management Summary 1) The ProjectWhat springs to mind when you hear the word classroom?A black board, some chalk, a teacher, four walls…What about changing everything?Using tomorrow’s technologies we created the classroom generation 2.0 for you.Nowadays we are living in a community. Wherever we are, we are always connected to others, thanks to thetechnologies that are constantly evolving. If we want to prepare the students to adapt to an entirely collectiveworld, we have to start thinking about tomorrow’s classroom.This project aims at developing a concept of new technologies for the future to improve the education systemfor teachers and students whilst considering budget constraints.The principal users of our offer will be teachers, students, and of course administration. Even if some of theneeds of the teachers and students are opposed some of them are identical which have enabled us to find asolution adapted to both of them. - F3I classroom (Functional, Interactive, Innovative, Intelligent) This concept is based on a main tactile and interactive screen for the teacher, a private screen integrated in his desk and also one interactive and tactile screen for each student. On each screen, they will have their will be a connectivity zone where they will have the possibility to transfer files from devices. This idea of an innovative classroom will allow students living in a connected world. - 3IPFree lecture theatre (3 I and Plug free) As the main problem of students and teachers is the lack of plugs, this model of lecture theatre is built around an idea of being plugs free thanks to new technologies. We chose to stay connected to follow our motto so we found the idea of recharging the student’s computers thanks to a Wi-Fi connection. For the functional aspect, we decided to keep the idea of an interactive white board but only for the teacher. Finally, thanks to his wireless pen, the teacher will have the possibility to follow his lecture with at the meantime walking amongst the students. 2) What benefits for HP?For HP, realising this project would be a great opportunity to become established in the education sector. Itcould represents important contracts with universities and also some exclusives contracts because if a universitydecide to have the HP technology it will be obliged to keep working with HP; if it chose to break the contract itwill have to change its whole installations. This would lead to a loyalty of the universities toward HP.This project would also permit HP to have more visibility on the European universities market.Besides, in terms of corporate image, HP could be seen as a company in favour of education and thus could gaincredibility. Furthermore, being present in the universities would bring students to have a view of HP’sinstallations performances and it could encourage students to buy HP’s computers for example for their privateuse. It could also be a great opportunity for HP to develop partnership with the government in order to have abigger impact on the universities market.Investing in this new concept for universities will give them a significant advantage in front of the competitors.Indeed, HP will have advance in terms of R&D concerning technologies because they would start investingbefore the competitors. Besides, it will have an image of leader toward the consumers. 3
  4. 4. 3A – HP PROJECT II- Benchmark HP developed some new concepts for universities that could answer to the principal needs of teachers and students favouring mobility and interactivity tools. But this is not a limitative analysis. Indeed the aim of this project is to prove that HP can go further by launching more and more innovative technologies. Concept of the ‘mobile classroom’. This new concept is really practical and allows more interaction during lessons, it is less expensive (30 to 50% less than a classroom fitted with computers). Concept of the interactive ActivBoard+2 It is an all in one system. Students can write directly on the screen, there is an integrated slide projector and integrated speakers. Furthermore, the teacher can fix the level of the screen, which can be very practical in the lecture theatres. Besides, they can use a stiletto to write on the screen or directly with the fingers.The tactile screen HP Compaq L5009tm, 38, 1 cm (15po) from 615€This technology permits a rapid interactivity and is really easy to use 4
  5. 5. 3A – HP PROJECTThe Pocket PC HP iPAQ 214 Business from 335€This technology allows people to go on the Internet and to have applications such as PowerPoint, excel or Word.The HP Mini5103 from 340€HP TouchSmart 600-1200 from 1049€.The screen is tactile; the technology is intuitive, fun and personal.We are going to present some of HP’s competitors’ recent concepts of interactive technologies which could beused by universities in the future.Nowadays, because of the needs of the students and universities many companies working in the sector of thenew technologies pondered over the question of adapting the most innovative technologies to the educationsystem.Here is the analysis of the main threats for HP in terms of competition but HP could take advantage of theseideas to create a brand new technology.The main competitors of HP on the market of the universities are: - Samsung - Dell - Apple - Microsoft - Cisco 5
  6. 6. 3A – HP PROJECT The Video Wall: thin-bezel LCD displaysThis concept includes LCD screens assembled together. The aim is that for a lecture theatre theuniversity can adapt the size of the screen to the size of the room.The University of Georgia for its Theatre Department has used this solution. It gave very goodresults to the university and an incredible image definition.The display interactive white boardTechnical characteristics of the product: Optical Touch Technology; Interactive Whiteboard Solution;Superior Picture Technologies; Sleek, Slim & 178 º Viewing AngleThis new product is the future of Education. This ‘65 touch screen’ the perfect tool for teachers. Theydon’t have to type mathematics or physics formulas. Now, they just have to use their fingers to writeit down of the LCD display. 6
  7. 7. 3A – HP PROJECT The Multi display screen‘The multi-display screen (MDC) program enables you to control a variety of different sources through thebuilt-in RS-232C interface.The main advantages of that concept are to facilitate the exchange of data and information, to have awide variety of connectivity optionsIt also allows reducing costs thanks to its ‘quick and easy’ installation that does not require externalintervention of technicians. Apple Podcasts take the ‘room’ out of ‘classroom’ Podcasts is the new way of freedom : students can learn wherever and whenever they want. They can play podcast on any Apple’s devices, so that during their University times they can spend more time participating and working in teams instead of being passive and take notes. Students can also make their own podcast with a Mac and podcast it on iTunes U, the education version of iTunes Stores. So far, Apple’s iTunes U is home to more than 350, 000 free lectures, videos, readings, and podcasts from leading learning institutions : such as Yale, Stanford, Oxford, Cambridge and more. Content ranges from lectures and presentations to audiobooks and course materials. Students can download content from iTunes U on any Apple’s devices. 7
  8. 8. 3A – HP PROJECTDell Education’s main goal is to create tomorrow’s challenges for the education. They wish thatstudents and teachers could have fast support that can be use elsewhere than in a 4 wall-space, theyalso want to ensure the security corporate data and increase devices utilization. Today, they havedifferent solutions in order to build tomorrow’s education.Dell Connected Classroom: Dell Latitude 2100 Net booksThe idea of Dell Connected Classroom is simple: Dell wants to bring the technology experience in theclassroom for both teachers and students. Each student will have a computer at his disposal (DellLatitude 2100 Net book). Teachers can actually see what is going on behind the screen thanks to alight that switch on when the student is not longer working, but he is on the Internet, on line or on asocial network. Students have the ability to carry their net books from one class to another and whenthe day is finish they put their net books on a cabinet. Overnight, net books are reloads and updatesare performed by the IT services.Dell S300wi Interactive Projector This new video projector allows all teachers to free themselves from the traditional whiteboard and help them to gain their audience’s attention with a fun and intuitive on and off surface interactivity. The Dell S300wi is working with a computer, a screen, software and a wireless pen. This is solution answer to the teacher’s needs: they want to have an interactive lesson and the possibility to be with their students. Each student will also have a joystick, so that the teacher can do a short and interactive quiz at the end of the session. It is the perfect alternative to an interactive whiteboard at a low- cost price (around 1100€).Interactive Tablet: Dell Latitude XT2The first Dell’s interactive tablet is a tablet simple to use, cost-effective to own (1973€) and pre-loaded with the tool and software that you need. It is a high performance system designed withintuitive inputs capabilities including a capacitive multi-touch screen and pen. With your fingertipsyou can collaborate in real-time, zoom in on graphics, photos or online maps, enlarge emails andmore. It is also giving you the ability to work either on a notebook pc or convert to tablet mode. 8
  9. 9. 3A – HP PROJECTThe company developed the concept of a ‘TelePresence Classroom’.Indeed, it allows lecturer to teach wherever they want, at any time and with a high quality of images.It permits to “break” the four walls of the classroom and thus to create more flexibility for teachers.Below you will find a diagram of the market shares of the market of the competitors we havedeveloped before. Market shares of the computers sales in 2009 42,30% 50,00% 40,00% Others HP 30,00% 19,30% Acer 20,00% 13% 12,20% Dell 8,10% Lenovo 10,00% 5,10% Toshiba 0,00% Percentage of the market sharesOn this diagram we can see that HP has a good position on the computer’s market compared to hiscompetitors. Indeed, it owns 19.3% of the worldwide market shares. 9
  10. 10. 3A – HP PROJECTIII- Expectations analysis and matrixNowadays, we are leaving in community. If we want to prepare the students to evolve in an entirecollective world, we have to start to think about tomorrow’s classroom.In order to discover what are the expectations for tomorrow’s technologies, we created a qualitativesurvey addressed to teachers and students. Eight teachers and fourteen students participated to ourprojects. Thanks to this survey we can underline what are the needs and expectations for studentsand teachers concerning the classroom of the future.First, when we asked them to imagine the technologies of the future, we have the following answers: 1) Imagine Technologies’ Innovation in a few years… TEACHERS STUDENTS Interactive Whiteboard 4 10 E-learning 3 6 Interactive tablets connected 8 8 with students and teacher No More Paper 3 2Legend: 4 out 8 Teachers and 10 out 14 students think that interactive whiteboard will be a daily part of the technology.For the future, the number one priority for the teacher is to be able to have an interactive lecturewith his students thanks to the technology (8 out of 8 teachers). Students and teachers all agreed tosay that interactive whiteboard will be more and more important in the next decade and they alsobelieved that gradually paper will be shifted and students will take their notes and follow on aninteractive screen, connected with the teacher or they will take their lessons via video conferences. 2) Future Tools that might help during a Lecture TEACHERS STUDENTS Interactive whiteboards 4 10 PC in every classroom 3 6 An Intuitive Tool 7 8 An Interactive Tool 6 8 No more Interface everything is wireless 5 8 Application that can tell you every - 12 modification on your timetable on liveLegend: 7 out of 8 teachers and 8 out 14 students wish to have an interactive tool during their lecture and lessons. 10
  11. 11. 3A – HP PROJECTConcerning the future tools that students and teachers desire to have to work, they all wantinteractive and intuitive devices. In fact, they agreed to say that it is easier to learn if you are havingfun and if you have a nice tool on which you can work on. Students also pinpoint that their lives willbe so much easier if they can have an application on their Smartphone that keep them aware, onlive, on all the different change and modification concerning their schedule. 3) Problems that Students and Teachers often faced with Nowadays Technologies TEACHERS STUDENTS Defective Equipment 3 8 Slow Connexion - 4 Compatibility between PC 2 10 Battery 2 12 Plugs 2 14 Legend: 2 out of 8 and teachers and 14 out of 14 students are often facing plugs problemsWhen you are asking this question to students, for the majority (12 out of 12 students), the mainproblem is plugs. It is always difficult to find a plug in order to recharge its computer’s battery, andnot be stressed anymore because they have 10 min left battery and their lecture has just started. It isimportant for them to find a solution in the coming years in order to avoid all these plugs and batteryproblems. The second point is that teachers and students always have problems with defectiveequipment and also compatibility between computers (mainly between Mac and Microsoft).All these different expectations are a real database to work on. It also allows us to prepare bettertomorrow’s technologies and finally answer to the students and teachers’ expectations. 11
  12. 12. 3A – HP PROJECTIV- Solution descriptionThanks to our surveys applied to teachers and students, we have identified the principal needs interms of technology for education. Students want to be connected with their teachers, reduce plugsand battery problems, and to facilitate the exchange of documents. As for the teachers they want toavoid carrying their computers in every single classroom and they also want to avoid every cable,battery and plug problem. 1) F3I classroomFirst, students need to be connected to the teacher to indicate every lack of understanding withoutbeing exposed in front of the class. Furthermore, it will allow the student to warn the teacherinstantaneously. Besides they won’t have to carry their own computer to university because screenswill be integrated in their desks.It will be a two person’s table including two tactile and interactive screens (one for each student).  Student’s interactive screenThe whole screen is tactile, but you can surf on the screen with a stiletto.For example, while you are writing an essay on the screen, at the same time it’s transferring on aword processing (such as word). The student does not need to take his own computer at school. Hewill only need his personal logging to log on the interactive table. So that he can a have a completelyprivate and professional worktop. 12
  13. 13. 3A – HP PROJECTFor example, during a lecture he can receive on his worktop the teacher’s power point presentation andadd his own comments directly on the interactive tablet. At the end of the session, the student will havea complete notes and he does not need any more to work on it later at home.In order to avoid any connectivity problems the student will have the possibility to put all his new dataon his devices (Smartphone, USB Stick, hard driver, camera…). For that he just needs to put his deviceson the interactive screen, which will recognize the devices automatically. Once this is done, a circle ofconnectivity will be drawn all around the devices. The student just has to select the file he wants totransfer with his finger (or stiletto) and lead it directly on the devices’ circle of connectivity. Files Device Exchange Zone Circle of ConnectivityIn case of technological problems with the interactive screens, each student will still have a USB portintegrated to his screen.During the presentation the student will have the possibility to work on an interactive power point thatis to say, that at the bottom of the slide, the student can find a small bullet point on which he can clickon. It will be written, “I do not understand” or “I need help” for example. The interactive screen will beconnected to the Internet. On the meantime the teacher can see online some statistics showing whichpart of the lesson the students did not understand. It will avoid letting students lost because they do notdare asking a question because it is pointless. Students’ Desk with integrated Tactile Tablets 13
  14. 14. 3A – HP PROJECT  Teacher’s interactive screenThe teacher will have:  The main screen replacing the classical white board  An interactive and tactile screen (such as the students) integrated in his deskThe main screen will be connected to the teacher’s private screen. It will allow the teacher to write onthe main screen with his stiletto and the students will receive instantaneously what he is writing.On his interactive screen, he will receive directly a signal telling him what the students did notunderstand so that he can know which parts of the lesson he will have to explain again. Besides, he canmake statistics of what most students don’t understand in order to improve his class.Thanks to his interactive screen, the teacher will have his register done automatically; he won’t needany more to have a paper version of it. It also allows avoiding every kind of cheating, as for examplefalse signatures. With his interactive screen he can send directly to the students’ screens his powerpoint or documents as well. Interactive Whiteboard USB Port Public Worktop Exchange zone with StudentsIn case of technical problems with the interactive screens, the teacher will still have the possibility(thanks to a USB port) to plug his USB key in the main screen with his presentation on it.The USB port will also be in his private screen.  A schedule application for SmartphoneIn addition, there will be a special application on the student’s Smartphone, which will give you thechance to get your schedule directly on your Smartphone, on live. The aim is to be able to consult theirschedule, at anytime and wherever they want. Assignments and homework deadlines will be notifiedon their Smartphone. You can also be informed about their teacher’s expectations for the next sessionor if he is not attending to the next session. 14
  15. 15. 3A – HP PROJECT 2) 3IPFree lecture theatre Legend Student’s Joystick Teacher’s Interactive Screen Wi-Fi Connection & Reloads Batteries Amphitheater Seats Teacher’s Desk Interactive Whiteboard Only the teacher will have the same concept as we have developed before for the classroom. The teacher can put his file on the public database, and the student can have access to them before and after the lecture. As for the classroom, the student can have access to the application on his Smartphone. They will also be able to send automatically their slides to the students thanks to a private network. In an amphitheater, we don’t have the necessary budget to do something likewise in a classroom. The solution won’t be to have a screen for each student but an alternative solution can be found for them. The thing is to have the same solution for the teacher as in the classroom. For the students, instead of having a tactile screen they will have a joystick so that they can still have an interaction with the teacher. For example, the lecturer can do quick quiz at the end of the lecture and see if everyone understood the main points.  An effective solution for battery problems Another solution could be developed in lecture theatre. Indeed, students often need to recharge their computers. To allow them doing it without any cables problems we could adopt the concept of recharging batteries through Wi-Fi connection. The idea is to have a Wi-Fi connection, which allows recharging their computers and Smartphone. When you enter your login to be connected on the Internet, the Wi-Fi recharges automatically your battery.RCA Company has already developed this concept for Smartphone but HP could adapt this technology(which can be improved) for computers. Indeed, during the Consumer Electronics Show, Airnergyappliance managed to recharge a Blackberry at 30% in 90 minutes. 15
  16. 16. 3A – HP PROJECTV- SCENARIO OF USE FOR STUDENTS & TEACHERSThe video aims to explain our projects more precisely showing how the technologies work.First, we chose to start with our motto ‘Living connected’ to highlight the idea on which we based ourproject of making the students living in a connected environment. The slogan is also the link betweenour two projects (F3I and 3IPFree).Then you can see the question ‘What springs to mind when you think about a classroom?’We wanted to take the video spectator into questioning about what the old classroom evokes tohim. The idea was to create a contrast between the current classroom and the ‘next generation’ onewe are going to present to him. For this reason we chose to show some pictures of classrooms andlecture theatres of 2010.In a third time the sentence ‘What about changing everything?’ appears.Once again the idea is to catch the attention of the video spectator and to encourage him to beattentive to the rest of the video, giving him the desire of seeing what happens next.After that we enter in the core of our project with the images of the F3I classroom and itstechnology.As we have developed several technologies, we decided to focus on each device so first we can see apicture of a tactile screen. This screen is intended for the use of the students and each student willhave his own screen integrated in his desk as you can seen in the next part.Then, we showed the Smartphone ideas with the application of schedules, then the circle ofconnectivity to transfer files with different devices (Smartphone, USB key, Cameras…)After that, you can see a short display of someone transferring files from a Smartphone to anotherone. Of course it is also possible to transfer the data into the tactile screen to work directly on it.We wanted to show how this technology facilitates the transfer of files between devices and howeasy it is to use it.To continue, you can observe our second project, the 3IPFree Lecture Theatre. We integrated apicture showing the future of lecture theatres with the interactive screen of the teacher and thejoysticks on each table. To illustrate our project we chose to qualify it with three main adjectives:‘Interactive, Innovative, Intelligent’ appearing on the video. Indeed the idea make the concept moreattractive and to facilitate the understanding of the video spectator.On the top of the picture, it is written ‘Wi-Fi: recharges computers’ battery’. As we couldn’trepresent the Wi-Fi connection on the picture, we decided to write it directly on it to make it morecomprehensible. Afterwards, you will see a short display of a teacher using an interactive screen,which is a concept that will be developed both in the classroom and the Lecture Theatre. Besides,you can notice the interactive screen can be used with the finger or a stiletto as the user prefers.Concerning the music, the idea was to choose a rhythmic music in accordance with our video.Besides, we tried to synchronize the music with the image for a better effect on the video spectator. 16

In fact, usuallySmartphone’s’ applications are downloaded for free or the customer only pay something between1or 2€, but we don’t really know how much it costs to create a brand new one.DK (2): The Intranet and Wi-Fi Connection are a part of the establishment’s annual fixed cost sothere are no extra costs.Our budget estimation is lower than the planed budget (80 000 Euros) but because we can’t assesstomorrow’s technologies (Smartphone’s’ applications, the cost to integrate tactile tablets in desks,the intranet application for schedules….), it is certain that this budget won’t be sufficient to fit aclassroom. For example, for the tactile tablet, we want to integrate a technology, which permits torespond to a natural hand gestures and real word objects (camera, cell phones…) in a simple andintuitive way (such as the Microsoft surface technology). Today, it’s only a large table for multipleusers and to adapt this concept for a classroom, we need a smaller product for an individual user.For that HP needs to invest in R&D to develop this innovation. 17

We can’t assess this technology because it is still in development.Concerning the lecture theater project, we will need more budget. Indeed, we have exceeded thebudget (100 000 Euros) and HP will need to invest in R&D because some technologies in this projectare still in development.To conclude, our study pinpoints that they are several opportunities that HP can grab to buildtomorrow’s education system. 18
