Get Ready For back to school with these tips for teachers, students and parents

As summer vacation comes to a close, teachers, students and parents alike are preparing to head back to school. Whether that’s completely virtual, hybrid or in-person, technology is helping to improve the educational experience so students can continue to get the best possible education no matter if they’re in the classroom or in their kitchen. And Motorola’s Ready For software platform is one of them. 

Ready For unleashes the power of the smartphone by providing new ways of interacting across devices and amplifying everyday experiences to larger displays. And when it comes to education – teachers, students and parents can all reap the benefits of an intuitive, immersive platform like Ready For. 

The Teacher

Ready For lets users activate advanced subject tracking** when video calling & recording. The advanced subject tracking feature automatically determines the best camera to use, tracks movement and zooms in and out to ensure you’re always front and center, regardless of if you’re writing on the whiteboard or sitting at your desk. 

And with Ready For PC¹, teachers can also more easily multitask during lessons. By simply downloading the Ready For assistant application on your Windows device and scanning a QR code, your Ready For Mobile Desktop will appear on your Windows screen, so you can text your colleagues status updates or attendance records while also teaching a new lesson. 

The Student

In addition to leveraging advanced subject tracking for A+ worthy presentations, Ready For lets students use their phone as their PC by connecting to a TV* and using a mouse and keyboard. This means students can use existing technology around the house, like a TV, to easily view pre-recorded lectures, review class notes, and study materials content on a larger screen. 

For those students who do have a PC, Ready For PC¹ will make it easier to stay focused as it brings all your notifications to one screen, so there’s no need to switch back and forth between devices or open unnecessary tabs.

The Parent

Whether you are constantly trying to find the charger to the laptop or making sure your child is actually doing their homework, as a parent, you no longer need to stress about keeping track of all your child’s technology. Because with Ready For, you can use one device – the phone. Wirelessly connect to a TV*, so you can see the homework while still being able to use your phone to check the answers (because let’s be honest 5th graders are smarter than most of us). And you’ll never hear: “I forgot to bring my school computer” or “I don’t have my homework assignment with me”, again. Now it’s all on one device.

Ready For is available on motorola edge 20 pro, motorola edge 20 and motorola edge 2021, edge+ and g100. Ready For PC is available on motorola edge 20 pro, motorola edge 20, motorola edge (2021) and motorola edge 20 lite.

Over the last year, the world learned how to thrive, find joy, and create during a time of massive disruption. That environment spawned new creativity, new ways of communicating, and new priorities for the mobile industry. At Motorola, we’ve always worked to share innovations big and small to empower our consumers. We’re going even further this year, putting more power in your hands with bigger camera pixels, a faster display refresh rate, a more powerful processor, and faster battery charging. It’s time to unleash your potential and tell your story like never before with the new motorola edge. 

be ready to capture any moment

We’ve improved our image and video quality since we know consumers are turning to cameras to share their experiences and connect in powerful ways. Motorola edge delivers a 108MP main camera for outstanding quality, one of our largest camera sensors ever at 1/1.5” optical format that also features what we’re calling Ultra Pixel technology. Every nine pixels is combined into one large 2.1μm ultra pixel, which improves light sensitivity by 9X and results in better low light performance. The new motorola edge is also equipped with a 119º ultrawide-angle lens that allows you to capture 4X more of the scene into your frame. Now see more of your surroundings and fit everyone in the shot. And thanks to built-in Macro Vision, you can get 5X closer to your subject for extreme close-ups, as close as 3cm away, for capturing photos of food, arts and crafts, nature, and more. Plus, it’s easy to turn everyday photos into professional-looking portraits with the depth sensor, which works with the main camera to blur the background more accurately and allow post capture adjustment of intensity. Last but not least, capture Instagram-worthy selfies day or night, indoors or out. The front-facing 32 MP selfie cam gives you Quad Pixel technology with 4x more light sensitivity. 

take better photos and videos with no heavy lifting

We integrated new camera tools into motorola edge to help capture content easier, faster, and more beautifully than ever. Dual Capture mode allows you to record with the rear and selfie cameras at the same time, capturing both you and your subject so you never miss any of the action—or your reaction. Audio Zoom uses advanced microphones to capture the sound of your subject while filtering out ambient noise and voices, so now your videos include only the audio that’s intended.1 We’re also introducing super slow motion, 4x slower than the slow motion on previous Motorola phones so you can see the details your eyes miss at normal speed, and Low Light AI that automatically analyzes your selfie for potential improvements in brightness and quality when the light is low. Plus, motorola edge can record 4K video for breathtaking quality.
