Holy Trinity Parish School, located in Louisville, KY (U.S.), was looking to replace their aging technology with interactive flat panels. A recipient of the 2004 Catholic Schools of Tomorrow Innovations in Education Award, they prided themselves on providing state-of-the art technology for teachers and students to boost interactive learning and collaboration. Previously, classrooms were outfitted with SMART interactive whiteboards and ceiling mounted projectors with some of classrooms having SMART interactive flat panels. They were now looking for panels that would really set them apart and engage their students in 21st century learning.
After a demonstration of the Clevertouch® IMPACT Plus™ touchscreen, Holy Trinity was their choice and purchased a total of 45 Plus touchscreens. What are a couple of the features that stood out for them?
- Clevershare™ - allows students to share what is on another device such as an iPad®, laptop, or PC to the IMPACT Plus screen (teacher maintains control over what is shared), increasing active participation and collaboration
- LYNX Whiteboard –easy-to-use annotation and whiteboarding platform that allows teachers to create and deliver interactive lessons using content from a variety of sources
Of course, there were more applications and features that won them over and the teachers and students are beyond pleased with the new, state-of-the-art technology that Clevertouch has provided. We look forward to learning more about how the Holy Trinity family have incorporated the IMPACT Plus touchscreens in their instructional experiences.
