St. Joseph’s Academy has a commitment to technology that is fused into the school, staff, and everyday lives of the students. The school has a strong vision for how it wants to use technology to help students academically and also prepare them for the future.
"One of St. Joseph's missions is to prepare our girls to become
women of the future. They will face problems in college and
the workplace but technology will be the tool they need to
solve these problems."
– Linda Harvison, Principal, St. Joseph's Academy
After nine years and many generations of Fujitsu notebooks, Indiana Wesleyan University continues to turn to Fujitsu for notebooks. The consistency and reliability of Fujitsu notebooks enable the university to standardize on one model to deliver business-class technology to its students in a way that is affordable and convenient, enabling the university to increase enrollment and revenues.
"Our earliest assessment that Fujitsu notebooks are a quality product has absolutely been true," says John Jones, vice president of IT at Indiana Wesleyan University, which has supplied its students, instructors and administrators with more than 5,000 Fujitsu notebooks over the years. "When you are sending out thousands of notebooks each year to students who rely on them for their education, you simply cannot tolerate a high failure rate. Year after year, Fujitsu notebooks continue to perform well."
Three years after introducing Fujitsu LifeBook computers, including 1,025 Fujitsu LifeBook T4000 Series tablet PCs, DePaul Catholic High School in Wayne, New Jersey has helped its students become more adept with computers and made them better organized and more engaged and enthusiastic about learning. Teachers also manage all attendance, grades and lesson plans electronically.
"I'm not saying that technology is the be all and end all," says Sue Parler, DePaul’s technology coordinator and a longtime teacher. "But, by putting technology in kids' hands I think we have raised the caliber of education here."
The College of Engineering at Virginia Tech is the first and largest public college of engineering to require all 1,400 incoming freshman to purchase tablet PCs. The recommended tablet is the Fujitsu LifeBook T4000 Series convertible tablet used by students for tasks including taking class notes, collaborating on group sketches and sharing diagrams and notes with individual mark-ups. Instructors use tablet PCs to make their lectures more interactive and encourage participation in the classroom.
"We selected the Fujitsu LifeBook® Tablet PC based on its reliability and flexibility, and Fujitsu's years of corporate experience with Tablet PCs. Fujitsu Tablet PCs also provided the best balance of price, weight, service and screen size." (Glenda Scales, Associate Dean for Distance Learning and Computing, College of Engineering at Virginia Tech)
St. Andrew's College needed a versatile tablet personal computer that could support a dynamic classroom environment where technology is fully integrated into the curriculum. To realize this vision, the school needed to equip students with a personal computer that could meet all the demands of a multi-faceted learning environment. The evaluation team found this machine in the Fujitsu LifeBook® T5010 Tablet PC. Last fall, the school purchased over 700 LifeBooks for of all of their students and faculty, and the clear consensus is that the vision has now been realized.
The most significant result of the completed vision is an interactive learning environment that keeps students engaged in the subject matter. "This makes it fun for kids," says Kim Sillcox, SAC's Director of Communications. "We want our students to enjoy learning and should do whatever it takes to capture their interest and imagination. This makes it more exciting, more visual—I think that speaks volumes."
The University of Delaware is one of the few universities in the U.S. using backup services for everyday data retrieval, not just for disaster recovery. Using the highly reliable Fujitsu ETERNUS®4000 Model 500 for mission-critical backup services and intermediary disk storage for disk-to-disk backup, the school currently backs up 250 servers across the entire university, including academic research, databases, email and web servers, and the library catalogue.
"We've been amazed with the number and quality of support people Fujitsu has sent out," said Dan Grim, executive director of network and systems services at the University of Delaware. "With most vendors, the product comes in a box and we have to put it together ourselves and hope that it will work. The ETERNUS4000 came with technicians who made sure it worked."University of Delaware ETERNUS Case Study (PDF 263 KB)
