Dell has announced the Latitude 13 Education Series laptop, Dell Mobile Computing Cart upgrade kit and Dell Interactive Projector S520. These new additions join the Dell Venue tablets to enable educators to innovate, empower students to find a true voice and active role in le

“Schools need technology that empowers teachers, engages students and accommodates small equipment budgets,” said Kirk Schell, vice president, commercial PC, Dell’s Client Solutions Group. “The new Latitude 13 Education Series and recommended peripherals are designed for interactive learning.  Students and teachers will love using it, and IT support personnel will appreciate the ease of integrating the devices into the learning environment thanks to exceptional security, manageability and reliability.”

Classroom-ready and Schoolyard-tough

Purpose-built to meet the needs of any student computing program, the Latitude 13 Education Series is well-equipped to deliver a rich learning experience, online or off.  With powerful processors, a large 13.3-inch display and a full-size keyboard, it’s ideal for content consumption and creation, durable enough to withstand bumps, drops and spills.
With best-in-class endpoint security solutions that include comprehensive encryption, advanced authentication and leading-edge malware protection from a single source, Dell offers the world’s most secure commercial laptops. The Latitude 13 Education Series offers Dell Data Protection solutions, as well as Dell KACE and integration with Microsoft System Center.

The Dell Mobile Computing Cart - available managed or unmanaged - makes safely transporting, charging, storing and updating classroom devices easier than ever. Holding up to 30 netbooks, Ultrabooks™, laptops and/or tablets of most brands up to 14-inches, the cart also features two external outlets to support devices on top, such as a printer, teacher laptop or document camera.

It’s now available with an optional upgrade kit for snuggly docking laptops to Ethernet and power, which makes overnight IT updates a snap and eliminates the need to manually plug in cables.

Also a new addition, the Dell Interactive Projector - S520, features multi-touch capabilities, Intel® Wireless Display (Intel® WiDi) + Miracast technology and advanced wireless functions for classrooms and conference rooms of nearly any size. The S520 combines features of interactive whiteboards and interactive LCD displays into one convenient solution. The whiteboard is no longer just for teachers; it lets students showcase their work and collaborate too.
