Geeter Middle School is the first educational institution in the US to take part in the first US pilot of Samsung’s interactive 1:1 learning solution, where it was thought up of to help drive classroom engagement and empower educators via classroom technology. Needless to say, Samsung summoned the help of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 (read our freshly minted review here). Should this pilot program prove to be successful, it should be applied in other learning institutions throughout the US, helping demonstrate the potential of the digital classroom platform which will see the clever integration of both the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet and interactive whiteboard displays.
A total of 35 Galaxy Note 10.1 tablets will be provided to the 6th grade math class at Memphis’ Geeter Middle School, accompanied by a 65-inch interactive whiteboard and a wireless printer. Teachers will be able to lead interactive lessons and real-time group activities via the convenient display and content sharing features, while learning management tools allow students to access course materials and information in a jiffy. Someone recommend a networked Battleship app already for students to play while teacher is not looking, but one thing’s for sure, going paperless means there is no chance for throwing paper airplanes in class.
