    The old saying goes, “The more things change, the more they stay the same.”

    This is true as teachers and parents continue to seek ways to keep students interested in learning, now with the added distraction of technology invading kids’ lives. While smartphones may distract them as much as sports and raging hormones do, such innovations as 3D printing have been, thankfully, pulling their attention back to learning.

    Here are three trends we see in education that will bring a renewed excitement to classrooms and campuses.

    BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) or BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology) is a term coined by Intel when the company saw its employees using their own personal electronic devices in the office.

    These quickly become non-issues with the adoption of a hosted workspace – a desktop environment provisioned from a remote server. To help you achieve a smart workplace, All Covered will launch a new service called All Covered Workspaces. This is a fully managed Desktop as a Service (DaaS) solution allowing you to access your business desktops, applications and data remotely.
