Avnet, Inc. Introduces the RGS Classroom Game Server

Avnet, Inc. introduced the RGS Classroom Game Server (CGS), a new high-performance digital learning system designed to enable school districts to affordably integrate game-based learning (GBL) applications into their digital lesson plans for grades K-12. The unit is optimized for MinecraftEdu from TeacherGaming LLC. The portable server unit, which features a 4th generation Intel® CoreTM i5 processor and 60GB mSATA Solid State Drive, is pre-configured with software, tools, lessons and a self-contained Wi-Fi network. Each unit can support up to 35 players concurrently, in a variety of network environments including existing Ethernet or Wi-Fi LAN. For classrooms with no network access, the server can broadcast its own LAN, reducing the load on the school network infrastructure. In addition, offline mode allows for play without any Internet connection. RGS Classroom Game Server application includes teacher training, professional development and lesson plans developed by 3D learning solutions company MakersFactory, covering a range of subjects which meet Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). RGS Classroom Game Server highlights: Enhanced student engagement through multiplayer game-based interaction. Compatible with RGS Windows® Wi-Fi Learning Device. Fully integrated for out-of-the-box deployment, with comprehensive pre- and post-sales support. Professional development based on actual learning deployments. Flexible LAN configuration options. Student management tools to control where students can go, where they can build, and how they interact with the world and each other. Discounted client and server licenses available for schools to purchase directly from TeacherGaming. Licensees can access additional lesson plans through the MinecraftEdu World Library.

RGS Unveils Rgs Education Chromebook

RGS has unveiled the RGS Education Chromebook, a new digital learning device. The RGS Education Chromebook is built for education, making classroom technology enablement faster and more affordable for districts looking to optimize digital learning deployments. The RGS Education Chromebook is the result of collaboration between RGS, Google Inc. and Intel Corporation to provide school districts with a simple, secure and always-up-to-date vehicle to advance and develop students' digital literacy skills. RGS worked with Intel Education Solutions, Advancing Education Worldwide, a leader in promoting innovation in the classroom and advancing education, to develop ruggedization features and mechanical enhancements for the RGS Education Chromebook. Built to handle the challenges of maintaining sensitive technology appliances in an active and demanding classroom environment, the RGS Education Chromebook features a 9.5-hour battery life, plastic bumper, water resistant keyboard and anti-peel keyboard keys, and is designed to withstand a fall from a standard-height student desk (70 cm). The RGS Education Chromebook further enhances the learning experience with the snap-on magnification lens that is included with each unit, enabling the RGS Education Chromebook to function as a microscope. Educators can combine the microscope with popular STEM applications and calculators available in the Google Chrome Web Store. In addition, offline capability extends the usability and utility of the RGS Education Chromebook.

The device, which is available in two form factors – Clamshell (capacitive touch and non-touch) and 2-in-1 Detachable Tablet with Keyboard Docking Station – is ruggedized to withstand the expected wear-and-tear of a classroom environment.
