Clelian Heights School for Exceptional Children (Greensburg, PA) was looking to update and innovate their learning environments. To meet the needs of their students, who range in age and ability levels – 5-years to 21-years-old, Higher Functioning to Lower Functioning – the school wanted education technology that would engage their students while being easy-to-use. They recognized that to better meet each students’ Individualized Education Plan (IEP), a variety of tools and resources were necessary including innovative technology.
Already fans of Mimio, the Boxlight education brand, Clelian was motivated to learn more about the Boxlight ProColor interactive flat panel display. After seeing all of the ProColor’s dynamic capabilities, including how it was easy-to-use for both teachers and students Clelian invested in this Boxlight classroom solution and raised the funds needed to install an interactive flat panel in each classroom.
Maryann Wiser, a Special Education Teacher at Clelian, shared -
“My students are between the ages of 5 - 9 years old. My students are not able to manipulate a computer mouse or keyboard independently. Working at the computer is frustrating for them and not something they are interested in. With the introduction of the Boxlight ProColor panel in our classroom, their interest is sparked by the accessibility of the touchscreen. Daily they engage in educational software that reinforces their educational goals of identifying colors, shapes, letters, numbers, and sight words. Using the Boxlight panel provides an instructional tool my students want to use.”
