Central Kitsap School District (Silverdale, WA) is a large district with 12 elementary schools, 3 middle schools, 2 high schools, a secondary school (grades 6 – 12), and a K-12 community school serving over 11,500 students. A primary goal for Central Kitsap SD is to make sure that students have the skills needed to face challenges “in school and beyond graduation.” To do this, the district Department of Information Services and Technology (DIS) works to provide the technology needed to support, and spark, student learning in innovative ways. DIS faced the challenge of trying to extend the value of aging, wall-mounted projectors of varying ages and functionalities. They wanted a teaching and learning solution that would not only allow for more STEM integration, but essentially serve as a multi-use product to update their science learning environments.
Central Kitsap DIS selected interactive flat panel displays for their district science teachers. Since innovating classrooms with the Boxlight ProColor interactive panels, there has been increased student engagement and interaction with science content and activities.
What are some ProColor standouts?
- 4K ultrahigh definition LCD display that produces a clear and vivid picture so that activities, images, and web applications are bright and attractive
- 20-touch point capabilities and simultaneous Touch 360° interactivity for 10 dual-touch and gestures for collaborative learning
- Unplug’d screen mirroring software so students can share what is on their devices to the ProColor panel, boosting collaboration and cooperative learning opportunities
- MimioMarket app store offers over 100 educational apps that are created to engage and motivate students, such as Coding, Math, Literacy, Science, stories, and games
Doug Dowell, Central Kitsap SD STEM Coordinator and Grants Supervisor, explained, “We were looking for a solution that would provide interactive capacity, more engaged student learning, superior viewing quality, and the ability to project data and images from labs and other activities.” The ProColor interactive panels provide teachers with greater presentation options so that students’ curiosities and thirst to learn are more than peaked.
