In 2019, Shelby County Public Schools (SCPS) invited Clevertouch® to demo and discuss possible education technology opportunities for the district, including a pilot project with Marnel C. Moorman School Center, a K-8 learning center. The district had been looking at panels from other ed tech companies with the goal of replacing the aging technology already in use and found that with the brands they piloted, certain features would not work. They were looking for an interactive flat panel that was intuitive, could help them improve interactive tech across the district, was a value-rich solution, and worked!
Clevertouch, a Boxlight group, was recently awarded a 3-year contract to help update the education technology in a large school district in West Texas (U.S.) that was looking to innovate their students’ learning environment. The district will be outfitted with the multi award-winning IMPACT™ touchscreens, the accompanying software, LYNX Whiteboard, and Clevershare.
NA College (United Kingdom) was faced with the task of investing in technology that would make the learning experience more enriching and fulfilling for both staff and students. Says Lisa Emmerson, Digital Learning and Innovation Manager at NA College, “We decided to move to interactive displays to enhance classroom management and boost learner enthusiasm and engagement.” Emmerson felt that displays provided an abundance of new options that they did not have previously with the traditional laptop and TV monitor combination.
