The Smart School solution has three components. The first, is an interactive management solution which allows teachers to deliver content to students, share screens, check student progress, conduct group activities and run tests or instant polls. The second, is a learning management system which provides educational material and content, such as e-textbooks and learning apps. The third is a student information system which helps teachers track an individual pupil’s progress, attendance and other information.
This Smart Classroom has eBoards which combine the simplicity of a whiteboard and the power of a computer. The Samsung interactive LCD e-Board increases student participation and provides better visual presentation.
Smart Schools work with governments and organisations across the globe to bring education opportunities to underserved communities so that more students can enjoy the full benefits of a quality digital education.
According to Samsung, The Smart School initiative has seen Samsung support over 3,000 schools globally, allowing well over 1.4 million bright young minds to learn in fun and interactive environments.
