Right now there are more than 3.7 million apps available worldwide and they are estimated to have been downloaded 135 billion times, all of them offering solutions ranging from productivity and education to health and leisure.
This app-happy culture is changing the way we live and work. Importantly, it’s also changing the way students study, complete assignments and prepare for exams.
Fuji Xerox Printers is keeping up with these emerging student technology demands with a series of wireless printers. The DocuPrint 315 series for example allows easy connectivity to wireless and mobile devices, including laptops, tablets and smartphones through the use of Apple AirPrint and Google Cloud Print technology, helping students print from multiple devices.
The Benefits Of Wireless Printing As A Study Tool
Wireless printing means a student can print from an electronic device without physically having to connect a wire to the printer. They are easy to share, so several people can connect at one time; and with no wires, the printer can live just about anywhere you wish. Simply print through your home wi-fi connection.
The Fuji Xerox DocuPrint 315 wireless printer range offer one-touch Wi-Fi setup which lets home users easily share printers among small study groups. Printers in the Fuji Xerox DocuPrint 405 and 455 series are AirPrint Enabled and ideal for office printing. With AirPrint, users can print from iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, and Mac without the need to install drivers or download software.
Taking your study to the next level. Get those grades with the help of printers and scanners from Fuji Xerox. Here’s how:
- Proofread final drafts on a dual sided print out, as opposed to the computer screen, to help better identify spelling and grammar mistakes and ensure page layout and fonts are consistent. Proofreading may save valuable mark deductions so read documents thoroughly and always give eyes a rest by taking short breaks to avoid skipping over familiar text. If possible, ask someone else to proof read the document as they may identify errors which may otherwise be overlooked or alternatively try proofreading the document out loud.
- Set up mobile printing for convenient printing from any Apple or Android device with the use of Apple AirPrint or Google Cloud Print, without the inconvenience of having to transfer work between a computer and mobile devices. Print homework or an essay from a laptop, assigned reading material from a tablet or photos from a school excursion directly from a tablet or mobile.
- Scanning is one of the most overlooked and under-utilised tools for students. Scanning will provide a digitalised version of documents such as worksheets, study notes and class tests that can then be stored for easy reference ahead of exams. Parents can also help children prepare for exams by scanning a PDF of a class worksheet, blanking out the answers, then reusing the worksheet as a practice test.
- Embed projects and assignments with hand drawn charts and pictures by scanning these charts and pictures as a JPEG file and then adding them to the project or assignment. Likewise, pictures from books and magazines that aren’t found online can be scanned and added as visuals.
- Print a backup of any important assignments or reports. Having a paper backup of a draft version of document can be a lifesaver if the computer file is accidentally deleted or corrupted. The backup copy can then be scanned and saved as a text file.
- Print common learning or reference templates such as times table grids, grammar rules, periodic tables or fact sheets and pin them somewhere prominent. This can be a useful study prompt ahead of an upcoming test and a regular reminder to quiz yourself each day
