hp-technologyDuring ISTE 2015, HP announced new technology solutions for education that are aimed to enhance student and teacher experiences.

New products include two convertible laptops, the HP Spectre Pro x360 G1 Convertible PC and HP Pro x360 310 G2 Convertible PC.

The Spectre Pro x360 G1 is targeted to teachers and is an ultra-thin PC with the versatility of multiple modes (notebook, stand, tent, tablet) and features a battery life of up to 12.5 hours.

The Pro x360 310 G2 offers similar versatile functionality of four modes and features a durable, mechanical hinge design and a multi-touch display for more involved, easier interplay with course material.

The recently released HP Chromebook 11 G4 makes collaboration at school and work easy; the notebook quickly launches apps, optimizes Google Hangouts with noise suppression software, and keeps classmates and teachers connected through available 3G/4G LTE wireless.

Chrome’s operating system can also be seen with the new HP Print for Chrome extension, which allows for quick and easy printing to HP local network printers.

HP also announced new features to Sprout by HP, the company’s immersive computer: 3D scanning capability. Sprout allows students in multiple education disciplines to bring their ideas to life by easily capturing an object in 3D that can then be further modified, shared, and printed.
