Kindle zamiast podręczników w szkole? Amazon znów o krok przed konkurencją

Nie ma wątpliwości kto dziś odpowiada za kierunek rozwoju e-czytelnictwa na świecie. Amazon po raz kolejny udowadnia, że nikt tak jak oni nie zna potrzeb tego rynku.

Firma z Seattle  poinformowała właśnie o swojej najnowszej, darmowej usłudze: Whispercast for Kindle. Jest to platforma skierowana przede wszystkim dla jednostek edukacyjnych, ale nie tylko, która pozwala w łatwy sposób zarządzać większą ilością urządzeń Kindle w szkole, firmie czy jakiejkolwiek innej organizacji z poziomu łatwego w obsłudze panelu administracyjnego.

Możliwości nowej usługi rozwiążą sporo problemów, które do tej pory mogły mieć instytucje, a właściwie ich jednostki IT, zarządzające większą ilością urządzeń udostępnianych uczniom czy na przykład pracownikom danej firmy, gdzie korzysta się z Kindle.

Najważniejsze funkcje Whispercast:

  • zarządzanie nieograniczoną ilością czytników Kindle z poziomu jednego panelu administracyjnego;
  • masowa konfiguracja i rejestrowanie urządzeń bez konieczności robienia tego na każdym z osobna ;
  • możliwość ustanawiania haseł, kontrolowania dostępu do Internetu oraz blokowania konkretnych urządzeń;
  • udostępnianie treści (ebooki, dokumenty etc.) na wszystkie lub wybrane urządzenia;
  • organizacja użytkowników w grupy (klasy szkolne, etc.);
  • możliwość masowego instalowania aplikacji z Amazon Appstore.
Szczegóły projektu w krótkim materiale filmowym:

Krok przed konkurencją

Firma Jeffa Bezosa po raz kolejny pozostawia konkurencję w tyle. Co prawda Barnes&Noble stara się podejmować podobne działania na amerykańskim rynku, jednak to Amazon pokazuje konkretne rozwiązanie odpowiadające na zapotrzebowanie tego segmentu rynku.

Dave Limp, wiceprezydent, Amazon Kindle:

„Setki tysięcy uczniów i studentów na świecie korzysta z Kindle. Dziś, przedstawiamy Whispercast – darmowe rozwiązanie dla szkół i biznesu, pozwalające zarządzać tysiącami Kindle i bezprzewodowo dystrybuować ebooki i dokumenty ich użytkownikom. Organizacje mogą także projektować programy „przynieś swoje urządzenie” w szkołach i miejscach pracy, pozwalające ich użytkownikom korzystać z oferowanych treści na ich prywatnych e-czytnikach Kindle, Kindle Fire oraz innych tabletach z zainstalowaną aplikacją Kindle”

Czy e-czytniki w szkołach to pomysł dobry? Trudno o inną opinię. Technologia w życiu młodych ludzi jest dziś tak mocno obecna, że zwykła, papierowa książka, zaczyna powoli odstawać od rzeczywistości, w której żyją. Wiedzą o tym uczniowie, zaczynają sobie zdawać z tego sprawę nauczyciele, a Amazon dobrze wie czego jednym i drugim potrzeba.

Jeśli weźmiemy pod uwagę zbadany i udowodniony fakt, że dzięki e-readerom czytamy więcej, to pytanie nasuwa się samo: jak długo jeszcze będziemy musieli przekonywać ludzi odpowiedzialnych za edukację w Polsce, że to jest kierunek, w którym warto podążać?

  1. Rzeczywiście, patrząc na dzieci, dla których nowinki techniczne stają się szybko chlebem powszednim, szkoła musi za nimi nadążać. Chcąc uczyć, musi być dla ucznia atrakcyjna i wychodzić mu naprzeciw – wykorzystując współczesną technologię do celów edukacyjnych.

    • Pozostaje tylko pytanie czy e-czytniki czy tablety, a może jeszcze coś innego? Wszystko ma swoje za i przeciw, a o kompromis trudno.

      E-czytniki idealne do czytania dłuższych tekstów, tablety do zajęć bardziej interaktywnych, netbooki czy laptopy to z kolei znacznie większe możliwości tworzenia. Jest to jednak pewna zagwozdka, bo na wszystko nas stać na pewno nie będzie. Przynajmniej na razie.

  2. Rzeczywiście, każdy z tych sprzętów mógłby na obecną chwilę pełnić określone funkcje. Technika jednak cały czas idzie na przód, być może niedługo będziemy świadkami kolejnej technologicznej rewolucji i powstania takiego sprzętu, który będzie rozwiązaniem idealnym?
    Na razie pozostaje się cieszyć, że dostrzega się w ogóle to, iż wiele rzeczy się zmienia i że warto je wykorzystywać. :)
