A recent K-12 case study shows that teachers, administrators, students and parents agree that the Samsung School solution transforms the classroom into an interactive learning experience.
MISSISSAUGA, ONTARIO, November 19, 2013 — In Port Coquitlam, Canada, students and teachers of Riverside Secondary School are reaping the benefits of the Samsung School solution, as they are the first of many Canadians to pilot the program designed to seamlessly integrate tablet technology into K-12 classrooms.
“In my thirty years as a teacher, this is the most impactful technology solution I’ve ever seen in the classroom,” said Deb Nordheimer, grade eleven teacher at Riverside Secondary School, B.C. “It has not only made it easier for me to manage my classroom, but it’s brought an energy to my students because it’s so interactive.”
The Samsung School initiative employs the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet to promote dynamic and creative learning, as students have the option to mark up learning material with accompanying photos and text.
“Samsung School is the best combination of education and technology,” said Riverside Secondary Middle School student, Iman Baharmand. “It’s made learning fun. I love using the tablet.”
Luckily for Riverside Secondary School, Samsung partnered with Advanced Education to provide the tablets across Canada. “We are honored to assist in bringing the Samsung School solution to Canada,” said Advanced’s Product Manager for Samsung School, Paul Weatherhead. “Advanced Education seeks to enhance the overall learning experience, and Educational Technology initiatives do just that. We have no doubt that more schools across the country will enhance their classroom with Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablets.”
Samsung School, a digital education solution, creates a cohesive tablet device environment for K-12 classrooms by using the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 for screen sharing, screen monitoring, student device control, remote content sharing, content management and formative assessments.
The initiative enables beneficial, easy-to-use tasks for the classroom, including instant quizzes and virtual group collaborations.
