HP kicked off education buying season at EduTECH 2018

HP kicked off the education buying season at EduTECH 2018 this year. Over 11,000 school teachers, principals, ITDMs and Department of Education customers attended the conference, with our ‘Classroom of the Future’ display taking centre stage. The two days were filled with positive conversations, and a strong message on HP stand: the ‘Classroom of the Future’ is here. HP visitors were immersed with the new Sprout Pro, walked on the surface of Mars with the HP Z Workstation VR backpack and tested the latest HP education hardware. We also hosted a Speakers’ corner with 34 mini presentations on topics from ‘What the jobs of the future will look like’ to ‘The magic of the pen in the classroom.’

Our Keynote presentation on ‘Immersive Computing in the Classroom’ was attended by over 600 teachers, where we discussed practical applications for VR from junior school, through to senior and tertiary education, highlighting our Mars: Home Planet initiative.
