St. Michael the Archangel High School gets a next generation learning platform by deploying LIFEBOOK Tablets

"Fujitsu has helped us transform these devices from glorified notebooks into a truly next generation learning platform that will equip our students with the skills and knowledge they need to thrive."

Abby Tate Technology Integration Specialist, St. Michael the Archangel High School

When St. Michael School’s tablets reached end of life, it replaced them with the next generation of Fujitsu LIFEBOOK devices increasing productivity for 700 students.

Customer

St. Michael the Archangel Diocesan Regional High School is a co-educational college preparatory school that provides a rigorous, comprehensive education. Staffed by a dedicated faculty, the school prides itself on an innovative Technology Department offering courses that range from Computer Science to Advanced Programming and Computer Architecture. Its mission is to provide students and teachers with the requisite resources to integrate technology into the learning environment, with continuous technology professional development, and training throughout each school year.

Challenge

After four years of successfully using Fujitsu LIFEBOOK devices in its 1:1 program, St. Michael wanted to introduce a more modern device to enhance productivity and functionality. After careful evaluation of the market, the school decided to partner again with Fujitsu.

Solution

St. Michael is deploying a further 760 Fujitsu devices to its students and faculty, running applications including DyKnow®, Moodle® and Microsoft® OneNote®. In addition, its student-staffed helpdesk has grown to 12, providing first line support for any issues.
