Technology for Engaged Learning
MBS provides innovative and cost-effective solutions and services to the education sector, solving the many problems and challenges posed by decreasing school budgets, the need for collaboration tools, and accountability. This allows our education customers to concentrate on their core competency; teaching. Our comprehensive portfolio of solutions creates significant value for K-12 schools, school districts, colleges, universities, and libraries.
MBS has been very successful at providing innovative technology solutions for educational institutions in California. For smaller school districts, we can help innovate shared plans to “piggyback” on regional services with larger school districts. Budget is not an obstacle (nor should it ever be) to providing advanced technology in the classroom, to improve learning outcomes for students.
Interactive Promethean Whiteboards
Collaborative classroom learning brings lessons alive
Effective learning for children happens when they are engaged with interactive lessons and activated experiences in the classroom. Many studies have demonstrated that the classic dictation model is less effective at helping children grasp important fundamentals of learning. Fostering the development of communication, collaboration and group-led decision-making skills early in a child’s life is vital to a healthy, long-term education.
Konica Minolta’s collaborative classroom tools can help empower students to become producers of content and products—facilitating the idea of entrepreneurship and providing new opportunities to enhance project, problem, design, inquiry and challenge-based learning.
Coupled with the first of its kind 3D printing curriculum, modules are designed to maximize student engagement and relevance. With an increased focus on STEM education for youth, science, engineering, mathematics and geography come alive, giving teachers interactive tools to produce engaging custom content and curriculum.
Seeing lessons come to life
In today’s classrooms, everyone’s talking about 3D printing. Konica Minolta offers 3D printers along with Polar 3D’s STEAMtrax, the first of its kind curriculum. Designed to maximize engagement and aligned with Common Core, state and Next Generation Science Standards, STEAMtrax is used in conjunction with 3D System’s Cube and CubePro 3D printers. STEAMtrax curriculum provides teachers with lesson plans, assignments and assessments to help teachers bring 3D printing to life in the classroom.
For Higher Education institutions, 3D Systems printers from Konica Minolta are more than the latest technology trend.

State of the Art Printer Centers
Take control of your print production needs in-house
Having an in-house reprographics center on the premises can prove beneficial to your school or university in many ways, like saving time and money by reproducing books, presentations, and directories without outsourcing them.
Konica Minolta’s Production Print technologies – including its bizhub PRO monochrome and color digital presses and it’s EFI Digital StoreFront – can help you create a world-class in-house graphics department. These products combined can significantly improve job management, workflow and fast turnaround times for improved efficiency and reduced costs.
Mobile devices that all you to keep up the pace
Interactive whiteboards, iPads, and educational apps are now common tools in the classroom, so teachers and administrators need to stay connected – to students, classrooms, and offices district-wide.
Konica Minolta’s many mobile solutions allow users to print and manage records on networked bizhub MFPs, access school documents and collaborate with students and teachers with connectors to Google Drive, Dropbox, Box, Sharepoint, and EverNote. All of this can be done securely anytime from anywhere.
