Pre-conference Workshops Leading the Change in Digital Schools • Punya Mishra, professor at Michigan State University, USA (see bio on Page 3) • Afternoon breakout session for primary teachers facilitated by Jane Harris, Chinese International School, Hong Kong. Participants were given an in-depth introduction to the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) framework and then investigated ways to apply this framework in leading teachers towards integrating technology into their classrooms. Hand-held Learning • Daniel Churchill, Head of Division of Information and Technology Studies at The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong • Chris Smith, Education Consultant from Shambles.net, Thailand • Paul White, Learning Technology Adviser for English Schools Foundation, Hong Kong All participants were supplied with an iPad to use for the day courtesy of the English Schools Foundation (ESF), Hong Kong. The iPads were pre-loaded with the best education apps currently available and participants undertook a hands-on exploration to see how mobile technologies can be best leveraged to support learning in the classroom.

Would you recommend this conference to a colleague?

Would you return to 21CLHK?

Well done to all the 21CLHK team on another fantastic opportunity. !The three days has been of incredible value. More please.

The whole conference oozed interest for participants and showed a very high degree of commitment from organisers. I would attend again.

Thanks for a great conference. It is quite amazing; you go to a presentation and walk away with two or three new 'tools' that people use to get their lessons across to the students.

This was my ďŹ rst multi-disciplinary conference. It was interesting to meet, speak with, and listen to educators from a variety of schools as they shared their educational experiences and perspectives.

The event has stimulated a lot of discussion between the three of us [that attended]. !We are at a place where the content is really going to help us !to develop our vision and improvement plans for the school.

I was blown away by the lunches provided on the 1:1 tours. Both were certainly more than I had expected and were appreciated by all of us.

Very well done. This was a wellorganized conference and I would recommend colleagues to attend.

Great venue, great organisation and as always very inspiring! Thanks to all involved.

total green office solution

Go green! Go lean Designed to work with the environment in mind, Ricoh’s Green Calculator and @Remote™ Intelligent Management System helps users who are interested in saving energy, reducing paper consumption, and efficiently monitoring and managing their device fleet via an easy-to-read graphical interface resulting in reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and impact on the environment.

How can I... Save energy?

Reduce impact on the environment?

Reduce paper consumption?

Monitor and efficiently manage my current device fleet?

Reduce Total Cost of Ownership?

COMPARE Ricoh’s Green Calculator provides users with an estimate of the energy consumption of their current devices–Ricoh and competitors–and compare them against proposed new Ricoh devices by using ‘typical electricity consumption’ (TEC) values–a method developed by Energy Star. In addition to displaying the units in consumed energy (kWh), users can choose to change the graphics to reflect: • CO2 emissions in kilograms • Electricity cost in local currency • Amount of trees that need to be planted to remove CO2 emissions.

Analyse and review estimated energy consumption of current devices using TEC values.

ASSESS Ricoh’s Green Calculator also enables users to project energy and paper consumption of the proposed Ricoh devices, using Ricoh’s internal benchmarking data. This allows a more accurate projection of the proposed Ricoh fleet than using TEC values alone. Generate a more accurate projection by inputting usage values such as: • Average monthly volume (AMV) • Average number of pages in each print job • Percentage of duplex output

Lower power consumption by setting a lower sleep time.

Reduce the usage of paper and CO2 emissions by increasing the duplex ratio.

total green office solution


MONITOR The Ricoh @Remote™ Intelligent Management System monitors Ricoh networked printers and MFPs at multiple locations, enabling users to identify over- and under-utilised print devices, automate service and maintenance tasks (including meter reading) and minimise total cost of ownership by shifting print volumes to lower cost devices. Track actual energy consumption each Ricoh device consumes.

• Track a variety of environmental metrics related to how much energy and paper each Ricoh device consumes. • Learn how many sheets of paper are used from month to month, and quantify how many pages are produced using the ‘combine’ function, which consolidates up to eight pages of content in copy mode, or up to 16 pages of content in print mode, on a single side of paper. • Track the percentage of jobs that use duplex printing—which can help cut paper consumption and paper expenses significantly. • Estimate how much electricity Ricoh devices consume monthly*. • Identify how much time each device spends in the operation, print-ready, sleep and other energy-saving modes. * Keep in mind that the age, and make-up of the user’s fleet may affect the accuracy of @Remote Green Reports, and it is not possible to acquire detailed information from certain older and/or non-Ricoh devices. Contact your service provider to ensure all applicable devices are enabled to appear on @Remote Green Reports.

Track actual paper consumption each Ricoh device consumes.

REPORT This solution also provides @Remote™ Green Reports, which enables users to track trends in energy and paper consumption over time, and enables users to make better decisions about their sustainability policies. • Compare fleet performance and set priorities to reduce energy and paper consumption to achieve corporate goals. Track trends in energy consumption over time

• Translate usage data into reports that detail paper and electricity cost savings, and CO2 reduction trends. • Customise reports with local data—for example, the cost of a single sheet of paper or a kilowatt of electricity—to generate more accurate estimates. • Graphical charts help users visualise changes in the environmental performance of the fleet over time.

Translate usage data into reports that detail CO2 reduction trends.
