Central Model Senior School gears up for digital learning
The Central Model Senior School, Marlborough St, Dublin has become the first in the city to adopt a digital learning solution based on the use of mobile devices, e-boards and wireless connectivity.
Dublin City Council and Samsung as part of their Night Run partnership, identified a number of schools to roll out the digital learning initiative. The Central Model School, Marlborough St is the first completed school in the current roll-out with St Vincent’s Girls National School, North William Street, Dublin and CBS, Cumberland Street, Westland Row, Dublin schools to follow in early 2014.
The School Solution, as part of the partnership with CWSI Systems Integration partner, will serve to demonstrate the potential of the digital classroom platform that harnesses the latest Samsung technologies, including the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet with S-pen technology, a 75″ interactive e-board with multi-touch, screen mirroring and state-of-the-art Samsung Wi-Fi technology which facilitates wireless streaming of content.
As part of the initiative Samsung and CWSI are providing specialised training and ongoing support for teachers which includes a suite of apps for student learning including Masoonoo – an Irish developed online learning platform.
“We’ve worked with the students and teachers within the Central Model Senior School to deliver a digital learning solution that will create an enhanced interactive learning environment, said Gary Twohig, general manager, Samsung Electronics IT & Mobile Ireland. “Working with our education partners, CWSI, we’ve created a bespoke learning hub using our intuitive products such as the Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet which allows students and teachers share notes, tutorial videos and provide real time feedback.”
John Caul, principal, Central Model Senior School, Dublin, said: “This is a terrific opportunity for all of our students to have equal access to the latest Samsung technology which will enhance the teaching, learning and assessment experience of the school community.”
