Interactive Displays Help Young Students Learn to Be Tech-Savvy
A preschool in South Africa implements interactive display technology to boost learning and tech skills.
Cows & Calves Preschool (Koetjies & Kalfies Kleuterskool, Centurion, South Africa) encourages their students to “learn and explore the world in which they live through discovery.” This includes integrating technology that enhances the learning experience for their young students. Because of their small class sizes, each student receives personal attention ensuring that individual needs can be met in dynamic and innovative ways.
With the help of The Smart Idea Group and Interactive AV Solutions, Cows & Calves Preschool invested in Clevertouch® interactive displays. More schools have implemented interactive displays in their learning environments because of their state-of-the-art features that are teacher- and student-friendly. The Cows & Calves community was no exception. “We invested in Clevertouch (interactive displays) in our classrooms as a teaching aid to assist children to broaden their knowledge and be techno smart,” stated Anell Harper, Principal of Cows & Calves Preschool
Children are born tech-savvy. The Clevertouch interactive display brings learning to life and acts as an additional teaching aid.
Key foundations of the school’s educational mission are encouraging their students to learn and explore the world through discovery, as well as learning to share and show respect for one another. The Clevertouch interactive display help teachers boost class collaboration and nurture teamwork via built-in apps such as Lynx and Snowflake.
High-precision Super Glide Touch technology gives a fluid writing experience that can differentiate between stylus, fingertouch, and palm-erase.
