HP believes education is a human right, and technology can be the great equalizer. We are partnering with Education Cannot Wait, UNHCR and Learning Equality to bring tech-enabled learning to students in Uganda, including refugee learners, through a pilot initiative using HP School Cloud. HP School Cloud is a learning management system preloaded with content and curriculum, and a wireless router all built into one that students can access from any wifi-enabled device--without an Internet connection.
Millions of children can't access basic education resources — the HP School Cloud could change that.
Around the world, hundreds of millions of people lack access to quality learning opportunities. Of that number, 264 million are children who live in communities where basic educational resources are unavailable.
HP believes that education is a human right. That's why HP is working with other companies, nonprofit organizations, and governments to create technology solutions that can connect individuals to educational opportunities wherever they live.
The HP School Cloud is a hybrid cloud appliance, meaning it acts as both an advanced wireless router and state-of-the-art file and content server. Each device will leverage a range of free, open source educational material from OpenStax—with more Open Education Resource partners to be announced later this fall. Schools without Internet access can simply install an HP School Cloud, turn it on, and let students dive into millions of e-textbooks and thousands of lessons on reading, science, mathematics, and more.
