Built on the philosophy that technology can improve education inside and out, the Samsung Smart School Solution brings a fleet of Galaxy Note 10.1 tablets, an interactive whiteboard display and multifunction printer to teachers and students in Memphis.
The Smart School Solution is not just technology—it’s a completely new way to teach and learn—and it turns our ideas about education completely on their head.
For the pilot, the 6th grade math class at Memphis’ Geeter Middle School is now equipped with 35 Galaxy Note 10.1 tablets and a 65-inch interactive whiteboard. Using this new technology, teachers now have the ability to lead interactive lessons and real-time group activities. Students can participate directly with the teacher and view course material, all through the tablets.
Freed of the chalkboard, teachers can move about the classroom conducting interactive lessons and activities through their touchscreen tablet. Teachers can easily track individual progress, create dynamic lesson plans, and generally have more access to each and every student—and vice versa. The social and logistical barriers of today’s class sizes are reduced, even moot.
The Samsung Smart School Solution is built around three central systems to assist teachers: Interactive Management, Learning Management and Student Information. These three components create a more integrated, engaging digital learning environment that’s easy to manage and frees up teachers to do what they do best: teach.
The Interactive Management Solution lets teachers deliver content or share a student’s screen with the class. Instructors can also track student progress in real-time, easily conduct group activities, Q&As, tests and polls, then instantly call the class to attention by locking student screens via voice command.
The Learning Management System gives teachers a way to provide course e-textbooks, learning apps, and school notices—and students can see these forms at any time. The Student Information System allows teachers to track student attendance, grades, prizes or demerit points.
Research from the system already in classrooms elsewhere, shows better class convenience, engagement and comprehension—key areas for successful learning. Students and teachers alike can enjoy the convenience of Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 and S Pen™—welcoming all-new opportunities for digital learning, and a new, truly interactive world.
