Closing the Gap in Distance Learning with Virtual Kits from Lenovo and Partners


We understand educators and the IT experts supporting them are struggling with the challenges of rapidly launching or expanding distance learning programs. Lenovo and CDW Canada are ready to help. Welcome to our distance collaboration and learning toolkit.

Lenovo, along with internal and external partners LanSchool, Microsoft and Google, has created free and available resources. The goal is to make distance learning as seamless and engaging as possible for educators, staff, students and IT support alike.

When it comes to education, technology is not a silver bullet. Teachers make the magic happen with students, and teachers need all the support they can get right now. This series of recorded webinars provides useful tips, insights and demos for each of the tools.

The following sessions include how to deploy LanSchool Air and manage virtual classrooms, setting up and effectively running Microsoft Teams for education and distance learning strategies with G-Suite and Chromebooks:

1.LanSchool Air

LanSchool Air licences can help lessen the impact of remote learning environments on teachers.  Whether it’s to guide classroom learning, promote collaboration, or simply making the most out of class time, LanSchool Air and Lenovo are here to help.

2. Microsoft Office 365

Microsoft Office 365 featuring Teams is free for schools and universities and provides the resources needed to move to remote classrooms with confidence.
