“Samsung School has brought such a dynamic energy to the classroom. Through these easy-to-manage digital tools, we are able to truly focus on education instead of the technology,” said Matthew Kierstead, Principal of Robina Baker Elementary School. “This is revolutionizing the classroom experience for our students and educators alike.”

In order to deploy the program across Canada, Samsung partnered with Advanced Education. “Educational Technology promotes a dynamic, vibrant, and productive learning environment,” said Advanced’s Product Manager for Samsung School, Paul Weatherhead. “Advanced Education seeks to enhance the overall learning experience by integrating tablets in to the classroom.

Samsung School, a digital education solution, utilizes the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet with compatible software to bridge the gap between teacher and student. The program 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.

Alongside formulated lesson plans, students input their own pictures and text to accompany learning material. “The kids are able to make a more personal connection to the materials they’re studying,” teacher Trevor Handerson emphasizes. “The tablets integrate online technologies with their personal notes.”

The initiative enables beneficial, easy-to-use tasks, including screen sharing, screen monitoring, instant quizzes, virtual group collaborations, student progress tracking, and more.

“Lessons are lot more fun,” one student explains. “It ‘s made everyone focus a bit more. We can add pictures, type and write with our colored pens. The tablets made our learning more exciting.”
