Charter School for Applied Technologies Selects Boxlight’s Interactive Teaching Technologies to Outfit Classrooms
Largest Charter School in New York State Adds Touch Technology to Every Classroom for Greater Student Collaboration
Lawrenceville, GA — January 3, 2019 — Dedicated to making ‘every day career day’, the leadership at the Charter School for Applied Technologies (CSAT) in Buffalo, NY have announced plans to install Boxlight Corporation’s (Nasdaq: BOXL) ProColor 752 interactive flat panel displays in every classroom across three buildings for its 2,365 students.
Installations have begun in the elementary building and high school math classes, with the addition of 60 75” flat panel displays for all classroom including art, music and technology rooms. Each display panel includes MimioStudio for the creation and delivery of engaging lessons. Next fall, the middle school building will be equipped with the state-of-the-art, ultra-high definition LCD displays that provide 4K-clarity so that onscreen content is easier to see, even in large classrooms. The displays’ Touch 360° interactivity also features up to 20 single-touch points or 10 dual-touch for gestures — users can work simultaneously, driving collaborative learning.
CSAT’s Bob Shannon and Alie Kuitems, chief technology officer and technology integration specialist, respectively, began their search for new technology that would provide greater collaboration – an important 21st century workplace skill that stems from CSAT’s commitment to extensive career preparation for all students – beginning in Kindergarten.
“We also didn’t want to burden our teachers with something that wasn’t intuitive to use, added Kuitems. “It had to just hang on the wall, plug-and-play, and start on day one – and that’s what we have with Boxlight’s ProColor technology. Additionally, Shannon and Kuitems noted that the ease with which the award-winning MimioStudio™ classroom software opens third party content created in programs such as PDF, IWB and PowerPoint – all without the need of a time-consuming conversion process. “Boxlight’s software imported files better than their competitors’ did. That was crucial because our investment in existing lesson content is extremely important,” added Kuitems. They also appreciated the great sound system that’s included in the display panel so there is no need to purchase additional speakers in the classroom.
“In the end, Kuitems concluded, “while the features of the display boards captured our attention, it’s what we see in the classrooms that has us excited about our selection of Boxlight technology. “Students are more engaged, even volunteering more to go to the board and show their work and we believe that will result in improved learning outcomes for our students, now and into the future.”About Boxlight Corporation
