Our places of education are becoming more innovative with an out of classroom approach to reach students of every learning capability and their technology demands need to be met with high quality equipment. A recent article in the Democrat Gazette celebrates how the Fayetteville Public Education Foundation awarded $252,660 in teacher grants and student scholarships over the last year. One way the grants are being used is to “implement an innovative aquaponics system in the high school greenhouse, to give special education students a chance to learn adaptive behavioral skills with horses, to construct a storm water management demonstration area, and much more”. This is an example of how learning isn’t just in the classroom but being taught all over the campuses. We understand the need teachers have for equipment that can move with their lessons. Our Ricoh multifunction printers (MFP) can be placed and accessed anywhere on campus for students and teachers to print, scan, and share information quickly. With the Ricoh CLOUD Education Package incorporated into the MFP, students/teachers can scan documents in to their cloud services, like Dropbox and Google. You can also print from your cloud services, track user activity, and assign chargebacks with services like PaperCut MF.
When you take the classroom past your room’s four walls, security is not an issue. Ricoh’s MFPs are equipped with an optional mounting bracket to attach a keyboard and ID card reader and card-based authentication products. They also have paper locking trays and a bypass tray seal.
