This week, Samsung announced the commercial availability of Samsung School in Canada.
Samsung Schools are fully integrated one-to-one education solutions that combine tablet and display technology to create an interactive, student-centric learning environment for K-12 classrooms, according to the company. In class, interactive teaching tools include screen sharing, student screen monitoring, and controls to track student progress.
“Samsung is committed to enabling new learning experiences for Canadian students and educators through the use of our technology,” says Philippe Lozier, Director of Business Solutions for Samsung Canada. “After a successful Canadian pilot program, we’re pleased to announce that Samsung School is available for commercial purchase across Canada.”
Over the past year, Samsung partnered with 21 school districts globally to pilot Samsung School, including two schools in Canada: Riverside Secondary School in Port Coquitlam and Robina Baker Elementary School in Devon.
“In my 30 years as a teacher, this is the most impactful technology solution I’ve ever seen in the classroom,” said Deb Nordheimer, Grade 11 teacher at Riverside Secondary School. “It’s not only made it easier for me to manage my classroom, it’s brought an energy to my students because it’s so interactive.”
“Samsung School has brought such a dynamic energy to the classroom,” agreed Matthew Kierstead, Principal of Robina Baker Elementary School. “Through these easy-to-manage digital tools, we are able to truly focus on education instead of the technology. This is revolutionizing the classroom experience for our students and educators alike.”
