Tanto los profesores como los estudiantes estarán dirigidos por la organización sin ánimo de lucro Digital Promise Global. Utilizando la tecnología que se presta en este programa, los estudiantes participarán en actividades y proyectos para potenciar las habilidades y conceptos importantes, incluyendo el pensamiento de diseño, diseño tridimensional y el espíritu empresarial social.
Each selected center is equipped with Sprout by HP, a Dremel 3D printer, HP x360 310 EE computers, an HP PageWide printer, as well as software and teaching guides. Digital Promise Global will provide professional training sessions on Office 365, Skype, Sway, and OneNote. Learning Studios is supported by partners such as Dremel, Crayola, Makey Makey and Edmodo who are contributing additional resources and materials to schools.

The devices that are framed within this project range from tablets specially designed to withstand the treatment of children in the first cycles of primary school, to laptops whose screen rotates 360o or convertibles 2-in-1, with capabilities to work batteries that exceed 18 hours.
Reinvent the Classroom is a project created to inspire educational innovation and drive the next generation of learning experiences, revolving around Windows 10 and HP solutions.
A proposal that could be seen in SIMO

The HP booth was focused to show its concept Reinvent the Classrom through spaces dedicated to students, where they think, investigate, design, build, and share their learning; as well as versatile and dynamic, areas that were adapted to the needs of the classroom.
In this way, they could see spaces where students had a whole wall of slate where projecting your ideas and work as a team, take notes, describe phases of your research and, above all, collaborate. An area that developed an innovative way of conceiving ideas, create projects and solve problems through 'Design Thinking'.
Another in which moved one also had an interactive digital display (PDI) SMART with its contents, on the front wall next to the teacher table. This could be used to explain and expose as well as investigate and experiment.
In a third space immersive learning is fostered and allowed the attendees know the use of virtual reality in order to make a dip in the contents and enhance learning through augmented reality. All this was contents of architecture shows through virtual reality monitor HP ZVR 23 inch, along with virtual reality goggles and HP Workstation Z440 workstations.
