Holy Trinity Parish School,
Amping Up Innovation at a Small Private School
How an award-winning school for innovation boosted their educational technology
Holy Trinity Parish School, a one-time recipient of the Innovations in Education Award for Technology Integration, was looking to replace their aging technology with interactive flat panels. Previously, classrooms were outfitted with SMART interactive whiteboards and ceiling mounted projectors. Some of the rooms had SMART interactive flat panels.
Choosing the product
After watching a demonstration of the Clevertouch® IMPACT Plus™ touch screen, they felt it was the best interactive panel they’d seen. When compared with other interactive panel brands, the IMPACT Plus was their choice hands down.
Holy Trinity had the goal of selecting a teaching tool with smooth functionality. After the Clevertouch demonstration, they knew they were looking at that tool. They purchased a total of 45 IMPACT Plus screens of different sizes although most are the 75” model. All Plus models have the OPS Intel PC Slot.
“From an instructional technology standpoint, the Clevertouch IMPACT Plus has been the easiest device I’ve trained teachers on how to use,” says Jennifer Huber, Technology Support Specialist.
Some of the features that made Clevertouch the clear choice included the variety of apps such as the Timer, internet connectivity, the ability to download APK files onto the panel, and the Android capabilities overall. In addition, the school’s decision-making team liked that the IMPACT Plus could connect with other technologies such as their Apple TVs.
Emily Thompson, Technology Coach at Holy Trinity, says, “Over the course of my education career, I have used a variety of interactive whiteboards. Clevertouch is by far the most engaging choice for students!” We look forward to hearing more about how teachers and students have adapted to the Clevertouch IMPACT Plus screens.
It’s clear that the teachers and students enjoy using the IMPACT Plus for teaching and learning. Some of the standout features that they enjoy include:
