Canon U.S.A. Educates Schools to Help Pave the Pathway to Digital Transformation at ISTE 2018
MELVILLE, N.Y., June 25, 2018 – On a mission to help educators transform the classroom setting for digital learning through technology integrations, Canon U.S.A., a leader in digital imaging solutions, showcases its latest solutions for the education market at ISTE 2018 (Booth #2375), from June 24 to June 27, 2018 at the McCormick Place West Building in Chicago. There, Canon specialists will demonstrate solutions to help address specific workflow challenges so educators can focus on what matters most: student achievement.
Canon aims to help schools Create, Secure, Collaborate and Sustain by implementing technology solutions and adopting workflow management systems that can foster responsible printing and help streamline education business processes, while providing tools that promote creativity.
Solutions to Create, Secure, Collaborate and Sustain
At the show, Canon encourages educators to evolve their workflows through a demonstration of Intelligent Grading Solution (IGS) IGS PRO, a test grading and analytics cloud-based software. The current IGS system provides educators with the flexibility to create and grade exams, and then generate detailed, analytical reports from an imageRUNNER ADVANCE system. Additional features now available through IGS PRO software include the ability to utilize a web-based portal, incorporate math questions on answer sheets, review exceptions and adjust test data accordingly, export grade data into popular learning management systems,1 and more. Canon solutions’ native and integrated applications can connect with major cloud-based systems such as Google for Education2.
Learn with Canon
Providing students with an engaging learning environment that encourages creativity is an important component to a student’s success. Canon invites all educators to an exhibit to learn how a PIXMA G3200 MegaTank All-in-One printer, in collaboration with a Silhouette America digital fabricator and software, can create 3D educational models utilizing 2D prints. The Canon USA-Silhouette America collaboration will include a library of 250 Canon Creative Park crafts that are processed to work with the Silhouette fabricator after being printed on the Canon printer so that students can immediately immerse themselves into the assembly of fun learning crafts. The solution provides a fast method for producing 3D crafts when compared to traditional 3D printers, has applicability to STEAM (Science Technology Engineering Art & Math) curriculum and has been validated by educators as an effective pedagogical tool for teaching design, assembly and spatial rendering.
Canon U.S.A. has been a proud Corporate Member of ISTE for years. By building relationships with education leaders and supporting the mission that sets standards for K-12 schools, Canon can help educators re-engineer their schools and classrooms for work in the digital age of learning.
