The exceptional measures of confinement that we are living have affected practically everyone. In every house there are adults who have been forced to change the way you work, adopting telework, and children and young people who, when they stop going to school or university, now have to continue learning from home.
The Covid19 pandemic is testing us and, although it is not always easy, we must act with the greatest responsibility. Staying at home is essential to avoid infections and keep the disease under control, but not all sectors have the same level of adaptation to new technologies, something that hinders the development of certain activities.
The education sector is one of those that has had the most to demonstrate its ability to adapt in recent months. Many centers have been forced to make drastic changes urgently and the incorporation of technology into education has been revealed as something extremely necessary.
Huawei, within the framework of its #HuaweiContigo campaign, continues to demonstrate its commitment to innovation in the education sector, putting multiple tools at the service of teachers and students to facilitate online learning. We tell you some of them.
Classrooms change places during confinement
It is not something new. Schools and educational centers have been adopting ICTs for years as a complementary tool for student learning. However, possibly no teacher, coordinator or director imagined a scenario like this, in which the classes and the tasks were not carried out in the classes, but in the home of each student and in a virtual way.
The education sector is one of those that has had the most to demonstrate its ability to adapt in recent months.
Applications like Virtual Classroom in the Community of Madrid are the new meeting place for parents, students and teachers. Through a username and password given to each child, they can access the content posted by the teachers to continue with the lessons. Once the tasks are completed, they are sent to the teacher who corrects and evaluates them. The objective is that all this time in which the schools remain closed and the majority of people confined to their homes, does not suppose a drag on the learning of the students. So, when normality returns, to be able to resume the rhythm and the course program in a simple way.
The biggest challenge, without a doubt, is in schools. In universities, practically all students have integrated new technologies into their lifestyle and continuing your study and learning is a less drastic change.
Technology and education, united
Although technology is present to a greater or lesser extent in every home, not everyone is fortunate to have a computer for every member of the family. An investment of approximately 1,000 euros is usually only available to adults. However new devices have emerged that, thanks to their versatility, can be of great help so that children and young people can continue learning, and that they are also visibly more economical. We are talking about tablets and smartphones.
The objective is that during the time that the schools remain closed, it does not create a burden on the learning of the students.
As for the first, find a tablet that is enough powerful and durable to spend hours on end running a thousand and one applications, it is not easy. Until recently, the panorama of tablets was divided into very cheap tablets, with low benefits and that soon either break down or fall short, and faces, yes, which are serious words. However, Huawei, as it did with mobile phones mainly but later on with other products, has democratized the world of tablets with highly solvent equipment and at normal prices.
The result is Huawei MediaPad M6, a 10.8-inch tablet and with an incredible 2K resolution screen which, thanks to its ClariVu technology, further enhances contrast and clarity for a great multimedia experience.
As for sound, to better listen to the teacher during a video call or in an educational video, it has a four-channel sound system and four speakers from the prestigious firm Harman Kardon.
Although the sound of the tablet is very good, if we need silence at home, you can also connect the headphones FreeBuds 3, with up to 20 hours of playback using its charging case.
And to promote smooth performance at all times, the key to the MediaPad M6 is the Kirin 980 processor, a 7-nanometer chipset that combines performance with energy efficiency, ensuring hours and hours of use without the need to charge it.
An adult tablet designed also for children
Access to technology should not be something that involves a certain danger to the smallest of the house. Therefore, Huawei has designed a tablet that can be used safely by both adults and children. For the latter, only by putting their fingerprint on the sensor, they have access to Children’s Corner. This tool includes a series of play and learning activities that can always be supervised by the parents themselves, for example establishing a maximum time of use.
In addition, to take care of the eye health of the little ones, the MediaPad M6 has the official certification of TÜV Rheinland and that ensures eye care by reducing eyestrain.
Putting the child’s fingerprint on the tablet, the Children’s Corner is accessed where we will find children’s content and activities.
Finally, for those who need a use as close as possible to a computer, they can also use the MediaPad M6 in PC mode with which the interface changes to improve actions how to search, edit or create documents. And to complete this use even more, we can combine our tablet with the M-Pen stylus and a keyboard.
Huawei offers its customers important offers and discounts in payment applications such as ABA English.
If to a hardware like this we add the possibility of accessing the best educational content In the Huawei app store, we have a perfect device. Specifically, and during this period of confinement as a minimum, Huawei makes available to its customers important offers and discounts in payment applications such as ABA English, with which to perfect the language in a simple and interactive way.
But not only that. Huawei, within its #HuaweiContigo campaign, in addition to the offers in its app store, has carried out a series of measures to further help the user who wants to enjoy the best technology. Therefore, during these days, if we want to buy any Huawei product, we will enjoy free shipping. Something similar happens if we need to repair a device: Huawei is responsible for picking it up at the address we provide, repairing it and returning it, all without any expense.
Finally, Huawei has also extended the term of the guarantee of its products that ended during these months. Thus, all those products whose guarantee has expired or expires at any time between March 15, 2020 and June 14, 2020, will extend their warranty until June 15, 2021.
