Set up your students for success with the Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen2

The pandemic is affecting many facets of our daily lives, none more so than the way we learn. As schools around the country bounce between onsite, blended, and virtual learning environments, it has never been more important for schools and parents to select the right device to support student’s success.

During these disruptive times, technology can enable us to keep moving forward.

More than just enabling the anywhere classroom, choosing the right device is crucial to driving today’s resource-hungry learning apps. Lenovo’s combination of power, affordability and quality makes them a great choice for K-12 settings.

As a parent who has ‘survived’ a few bouts of home schooling recently – I am happy to share my perspective on why I think the new Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen2 is the perfect pick for the K-12 student.

Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen2

Lightweight and classroom friendly

With a starting weight of just 1.43kg, this portable all-rounder won’t weigh down growing bodies as they return to the classroom. Even in states that have had minimal home schooling, schools have had to contend with a growing and diverse amount of apps and traffic in the classroom. The Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen2 ships with Wi-Fi 6 to help students maximise performance in crowded Wi-Fi campus environments.

A fast start up and an extended battery life of up to 11 hours1 means less disruption in class (or at home). Plus, if students forget to plug in devices overnight, Rapid Charge yields up to 80% battery charge in just 1 hour.

Right-sized performance engine

Today’s learners are the ultimate multitaskers. Often notetaking whilst running an array of power-hungry educational apps – possibly all while video conferencing. The Lenovo ThinkPad L13 Yoga Gen2 delivers more multitasking speed with your choice of 11th Gen Intel® Core™ or AMD Ryzen™ 5000 series processors:

AMD Ryzen 5000

AMD Ryzen™ 5000 Series processor

The upgraded 5000 Series Processor can handle it all. Plus, built in AMD RadeonTM Graphics delivers more interactive and immersive digital experiences.

Intel Core

Quad Core 11th Gen Intel® Core™ processor

Intelligent performance features dynamically direct power to where it’s needed to deliver speed. Plus, the integrated Intel® Iris Xe graphics and Thunderbolt 4 deliver a super smooth viewing experience.

Designed for the digital curriculum

Remote and virtual learning means devices have become critical communication tools. The ThinkPad doesn’t disappoint. Dolby Audio Premium®, delivers crystal-clear audio and the built-in high-resolution digitizer significantly improves the experience for watching videos or participating in virtual classrooms. Plus, dual far-field mics ensure that students can be heard clearly as well. As an added bonus I love the positioning of the world facing camera in the middle of the device – far removed from clumsy fingers and thumbs.

I like to squeeze as much value and utility as possible from a device and the 2-in 1 design incorporating the high-resolution touch screen and integrated pen delivers maximum flexibility with its 360-degree hinge.

Having a pen that recharges when placed back into its discrete housing (see point 5 in the diagram below) earns major bonus points in my books for two reasons. Firstly, no more hunting through backpacks and pencil cases to find missing digital pens that aren’t usually cheap to replace, and secondly, no need for chewing through AAA batteries anymore!

Keeping learning secure

When something as simple as clicking a link can put students at risk, it’s reassuring to know that Lenovo’s suite of ThinkShield security features offer comprehensive protection for staff and students. Discrete Trusted Platform Module (dTPM) encrypts data and works in conjunction with Windows 10 security to provide integrated security, software, and identity protection layers right out of the box (user activated). You can also leverage the built-in biometric fingerprint scanner to confidently manage identity access, allowing students to log into their device securely without needing to remember and reset passwords.
