Closing the Gap in Distance Learning – A Virtual Tool Kit from Lenovo and Our Partners

Richard Henderson, Director of Global Education Solutions

We understand educators and the IT experts supporting them are struggling with the challenges of rapidly launching or expanding distance learning programs. Lenovo is ready to help. Welcome to our Distance Collaboration and Learning Toolkit.

Lenovo, along with internal and external partners LanSchool, Microsoft and Google, has created free and available resources. Our goal is to make distance learning as seamless and engaging as possible for educators, staff, students and support IT alike.

When it comes to education, technology is not a silver bullet, teachers make the magic happen with students. And teachers need all the support they can get right now. This series of recorded webinars provides useful tips, insights and demos for each of the tools.

Delia DeCourcy, Lenovo’s Global Education Solutions Manager, begins the webinar series with a tutorial on shifting to remote teaching and learning with insights on preparing to go virtual, lesson planning, and implementation.

Following sessions then include how to deploy LanSchool Air and manage virtual classrooms, setting up and effectively running Microsoft Teams for education, and distance learning strategies with G-Suite and Chromebooks.

In addition to the many practical tips on distance learning presented in these recordings it is important educators know the wealth of free resources available to them at this time.
