Inveneo Becomes an Intel Learning Series Alliance Member
For immediate release: San Francisco, CA. October 28th 2010 – Inveneo, a non-profit social enterprise committed to deploying appropriate information and communication technologies (ICTs) in the developing world, announced today that it is working with Intel® as part of the Intel Learning Series Alliance as an Education solution deployment member.
“Our ethnographic research in classrooms around the world highlights the need to minimize the technical burden so teachers can focus on delivering a rewarding learning experience for students. These research results led us to work with technology implementers like Inveneo to deliver Intel-powered education solutions that makes it easier for teachers to focus on teaching, not technology administration, so they can create 21st century educational environments.” Frederico Carvalho, Intel
As an Education Solution Provider, Inveneo and its Certified ICT Partners (ICIPs) will now be able to implement state of the art education solutions using Intel’s reference design of the Intel-powered classmate PCs and other tools in over 26 African countries.
Inveneo and its 65 ICIPs will include Intel Learning Series products in professional turnkey education solutions. These can range from a basic site survey, installation and support all the way to complete project design, software and hardware systems integration and project management.
“We are honored to be an Intel Learning Series Alliance member and work with Intel in deploying appropriate educational technology in schools across Africa. We see a strong demand for these solutions – UltiNetS, our partner in Malawi, is already installing two Intel Learning Series mobile e-Labs in a USAID-funded education project there.”
