Laurel School District (New Castle, PA) has the goal of “equipping students to become knowledgeable, responsible, and engaged contributors” to society, and since the early 2000s has worked to implement education technology like interactive whiteboards to meet this goal. Unfortunately, interactive whiteboards only had pockets of success and use was generally low for both teachers and students. Robert Lee, Director of Administrative Services at Laurel SD commented, “We wanted to infuse educational technology that allows our students to be active participants.”
Laurel SD decided to try the Boxlight ProColor interactive flat panel display to boost class engagement and collaboration. Besides being a cost-effective solution for the district, the ProColor flat panels lend themselves to improved class participation.
Lee remarked, “We found that the Boxlight flat panels have been a game-changer for us! They have led to increased student engagement and my staff loves them!”
What are a few ProColor standouts?
- 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
